The Name of All Things is the second book in the A Chorus of Dragons series, following The Ruin of Kings, which I reviewed two days ago! We're continuing on my review series of this epic fantasy series as the third book, The Memory of Souls came out at the beginning of this month, and I'm urging you all to pick up this series! This review will be spoiler-free for The Name of All Things but may contain spoilers for The Ruin of Kings. Rating: 4 stars!
I received a finished copy of The Memory of Souls for review, and I'm a complete sucker for epic fantasy (especially with a dragon on the cover, I'm only SO strong), and so I'm marathon reading the entire series (at 600 pages each, too. Nobody tell my TBR). I had no idea what I was getting into, and honestly? It was a wild ride and nothing like I expected. Rating: 4 stars!
Releasing 22nd September 2020, The Silvered Serpents is the much anticipated sequel to the Parisian fantasy heist novel, The Gilded Wolves. Beware spoilers for the first novel, though this review is spoiler-free for The Silvered Serpents. Make sure to pick up this sequel that is, against all odds, better than the book it's following up on. Rating: 5 stars!
Crier's War carved out a space in my head when I first read it back in February and has completely refused to leave since, so when I got the opportunity to join this blog tour? I leaped at it. Iron Heart is a perfect follow up and make sure to pick it up on September 8th 2020 in the US and October 14th 2020 for the UK.
I honestly have been so hyped for this book for so long that I couldn't believe it when I made it onto the blog tour! An established f/f relationship, bone magic, travelling islands and a magical creature with personality? Sign me the hell up. I can't wait to get my physical copy of this book after release date, because I think this might be even better on the reread. Rating: 4.5 stars
Honestly? I was predisposed to love this book. A magic school that’s out to kill students? A dark witch as a main character with untapped powers of death and destruction? Rivals to awkward not-quite-dating? It has all the things I’d pile into my dream book, written by one of my favourite authors and to top it all off the main character shares my name! This book was made for me. Rating: 5 stars!
"Love does not work in terms of convenience. Or any kind of sense." This one has been on my radar forever. Mermaids? Witches? Pirates? AND THEY'RE ALL QUEER? This book was made for me. I read this in a buddy read with a friend, and ended up finishing a day early because we just couldn't … Continue reading The Mermaid, the Witch, and the Sea by Maggie Tokuda-Hall (Review)
I love her, and I know she loves me, but that's not enough. She will not break the rules even if they require me to deny everything about myself. This is the kind of book that got added to my physical copies wishlist when I was 15% into the eARC. I already knew by that … Continue reading Cinderella is Dead by Kalynn Bayron (Review)
He's being so accommodating that I really only have two options: climb off my high horse, or ride it straight out of here. I choose the latter, because it's a long way down. We all know how much I love vampires, so a vampire detective story was irresistible to me. Add in a literal disaster … Continue reading May Day by Josie Jaffrey (Review)
Apologies are for sheep. Let them all see what I've become. Let them fear me. I preordered the Fairyloot copy of The Damned to match my gorgeous edition of The Beautiful, but I couldn't wait for it to get here, so I'm glad I got a review copy from Hodder & Stoughton too! After several … Continue reading The Damned by Renée Ahdieh (The Beautiful #2, Review)
