BLOG TOUR REVIEW | Misrule | Heather Walter | Malice #2

I have, unfortunately, had a few months of disappointing sequels, so when I got sent the absolutely stunning physical ARC of Misrule, I was equal parts excited and scared. I loved Malice the first time I read it, and when I reread it in preparation for Misrule, I loved it even more. And Heather Walter? She knocked it out of the park. This sequel absolutely stuck the landing.

REVIEW | The Thousand Eyes | A.K. Larkwood | The Serpent Gates #2

I absolutely adored THE UNSPOKEN NAME when I first read it, and loved it even more on the reread. This was one of my most anticipated 2022 releases, so I was delighted when Tor sent me a finished copy to read and review. I started reading the audiobook, but ended up swapping to the physical copy because I felt the overwhelming urge to tab as I went - which I have only ever done for Harrow the Ninth before. That should tell you how much I loved this sequel.

REVIEW | Vespertine | Margaret Rogerson

Sorcery of Thorns was one of the first eARCs that I read, and the day I finished it I ordered An Enchantment of Ravens because I was enchanted (excuse the pun) with Margaret Rogerson's writing. Since then, she's been an insta-buy author for me, and this has just solidified my decision. As much as I love Sorcery of Thorns, Vespertine is definitely my new favourite. Rating: 5 stars!

REVIEW | The Last Graduate | Naomi Novik | Scholomance #2

When The Last Graduate showed up on my doorstep, I threw out my entire TBR to jump into it as soon as possible. I wasn't disappointed in the slightest, though I think it's possible that waiting for the third book might kill me. The Last Graduate picks up exactly where A Deadly Education left off, with barely seconds passing, so I highly recommend rereading as the back-to-back experience is excellent. Rating: 5 stars!
