This isn't my usual genre, but I loved THE HENNA WARS by Adiba Jaigirdar so much that I just had to give this one a go. I'm glad that I did, it was everything I loved about THE HENNA WARS, with fake dating (one of my favourite tropes) thrown into the mix. Rating: 4.5 stars.
Everyone's been talking about this book all year, and I've been patiently waiting for the UK release date (January 7th, 2021). So when I was offered the chance to review it for the upcoming blog tour, I don't think I've ever answered an email so quickly in my life! And boy did The Henna Wars hold up to the hype! Rating: 5 stars
I've been so excited for this full length novel-in-verse from Nikita Gill. I've read and adored some other verse novels lately, mostly from Elizabeth Acevedo, and so when I heard my favourite poet would be writing one, I knew I had to have it. Rating: 4.5 stars!
This one was on my radar forever and as more and more hype came in for it, I got more excited to read it. I don't know how it took me so long to get around to it. Once I picked it up, I literally read this in one sitting - it really was that good, and a lot like watching a movie unfold in front of me. Rating: 5 stars!
I read this book completely blind, having requested it based on: my ridiculous run of 4 or 5 star reads with Pushkin Press, the hype I'd seen on twitter and that gorgeous cover. I'm actually kind of glad I read it with no idea what was happening, because it meant that this book swept me away with its emotive story. Rating: 4 stars!
I'm obsessed with the cover for this one! School for Nobodies has a gorgeous cover, and as someone who always wanted to run away from the circus a little bit, I was fascinated by how the circus aspects were going to be tied into the story! I was so excited when I got my hands … Continue reading School for Nobodies by Susie Bower (Review)
No, what surprises me is the sudden, jolting, and undeniable realization that even I didn’t want to, I’ve fallen for an actual princess. I picked this up because I'm a sucker for royal romance, so when I heard about a f/f royal romance I was all over it. We ended up picking it as our … Continue reading Her Royal Highness by Rachel Hawkins (Review)
I can’t help this urge I have to try to make it better, to insert myself into this when it’s not my place. I found The Gravity of Us through following Phil Stamper on twitter, and the hilarious interactions between him and Ryan La Sala, and when I caught a promo post about The Gravity … Continue reading The Gravity of Us by Phil Stamper (Review)
“If there’s any legacy for me on this bloody earth, I want it to be true.” Usually I'm a little skeptical about books that have been heavily hyped. It's easy to be let down when you get your hopes up over a book. I took a punt on this one, and asked a work colleague … Continue reading Red, White & Royal Blue by Casey McQuiston (Review)
The US cover, because I love it more than the UK cover honestly. I fight. I will always fucking fight. The ocean should know better. I have been waiting extremely anxiously and extremely loudly for Marissa Meyer's Supernova to arrive. It turned up yesterday and I told myself I had to finish La Belle Sauvage … Continue reading Foul is Fair by Hannah Capin (Review)
