I seem to have a niche and specific love for historical fantasy with strong female main characters, witchy themes and watery settings. And All the Murmuring Bones is a fantastic example of all of those things. I loved this one so much. Rating: 4 stars.
I had to pick this up for the badass female MC and the pirate ship energy. Not to mention that tagline 'Trader. Fighter. Survivor.' I love it. This wasn't quite the book I was hoping for, but it was definitely good enough to get me reading the final book in the duology when it releases. Rating: 3.5 stars
For old fans and newcomers alike, The Rise of Kyoshi is the perfect book for you. It's sapphic, amazingly visual and expands on the Avatar universe in a wonderful way. I highly recommend it if you love badass female characters even half as much as I do. Rating: 5 stars!
I was absolutely heartbroken when I didn't get an ARC of this one (et tu Hachette) and so as soon as this one released I listened to the entire audiobook in one sitting whilst doing a particularly evil jigsaw. As long as it still counts as one sitting if I had to keep pausing it to pace in and out of the living room to yell about how stressed I was over this incredible Greek mythology based story. Rating: 5 stars!
I'm a sucker for a retelling, and this Romeo and Juliet retelling in 1920s Shanghai was getting so much hype that I couldn't stay away. It was worth every bit of hype and I can't wait for the sequel now, even if I am full of fear for the end of this story! Rating: 4 stars!
Jebi is an artist, and all they want to do is paint. Not get dragged into a revolutionary plot, steal a dragon and fall in love. And yet. I love this sci-fi epic. Rating: 4.5 stars
I had high expectations for this witchy, feminist book and Alix E. Harrow smashed every single one of them. This book is everything to me and I cannot stop thinking about it. Rating: 5 stars
This was my first Kerri Maniscalco books, and I'm very grateful to @HodderBooks for sending me the eARC. I couldn't put it down for a second. With vengeful witches, a wrathful demon and mystery that kept me turning pages, I can't wait for book 2. Rating: 4 stars
The Invisible Life of Addie Larue, release date October 6th 2020, is my first Schwab book and okay, okay. I'm hooked. Definitely need to read more of her books, but first it's time to talk about this gorgeous book about life, legacy and the many reasons we do 👏 not 👏 make 👏 deals 👏 with 👏 devils 👏. Rating: 5 stars!
The Memory of Souls is the third book in the A Chorus of Dragon series, following: book one, The Ruin of Kings which I reviewed last Wednesday; and book two, The Name of All Things which I reviewed last Friday! There are two more books to go in this epic fantasy series, and I can't wait for them - this one released earlier this month, so be sure to grab it while it's hot. Rating: 5 stars!
