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 love these superqueeroes, and this is absolutely my favourite discovery of 2020. I adore this series and each book is better than the one before. I reviewed Cute Mutants Vol 1: Mutant Pride on the blog, here, and I've got a review of Cute Mutants Vol 3: The Demon Queer Saga coming out soon! These are an insta buy for me, and I recommend them highly. Rating: 5 stars!
There's an outside chance that this might be my perfect book. Sapphics, mutants, a sentient bat and Pillow. If you like funny, nerdy prose and superqueero characters, this is your perfect book too. Not to mention look at that cover, all three volumes (two released and one upcoming) have covers as beautiful as the content. Rating: 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
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!
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!
I was recommended this book by a friend, as it had somehow completely missed my radar, and I’m so glad that they pointed it out to me because I adored this book. So much so that I finished my review copy and bought a hardback a few days later, because I know I’m going to want to hear the rest of First Sister and Lito’s adventures. Rating: 4.5 stars!
An adult space epic from Christopher Paolini? It's a must read, and I adored it. Sentient space ships, a xeno space suit and some seriously cool aliens. Rating: 5 stars
It's absolutely fair to say that Harrow the Ninth is probably my favourite book of all time. And that means that most of my thoughts about this book are incoherent screaming about how much I love it. Rating: 5 stars
