I actually had this one pre-ordered long before I got accepted for the eARC, because Christina Henry is one of my auto-buy authors and I was waiting impatiently for Waterstones to bring out a signed edition of Near the Bone to match the rest of my series. Rating 4 stars.
This horror thriller set in a boarding school with dual timelines was a highly anticipated release of mine, so I was so excited to get one of the gorgeous ARCs. I adored this book and I can't believe it's finally out in the UK next week! If you like sapphics, twisting storylines and creepy horror, be sure to pick this one up! Rating: 5 stars!
I love this little novella and if you like disaster lesbians, poisonous gardens and mysterious, monstrous sicknesses, this is a must read. I also highly recommend The Luminous Dead by the same author - and The Death of Jane Lawrence, coming in October. Rating: 4 stars.
I got this one for Christmas (thanks Mols) and ended up marathoning it in a few days. It was so much fun, I thoroughly enjoyed it and will absolutely be reading more of T. Kingfisher's work in the future. Rating: 5 stars!
I nearly picked this up for the pretty cover, then realised that I was supposed to only be reading the books I already owned. And then someone told me that it was darker than they expected, and I insta-ordered it. I'm a sucker for dark books, and this has an achillean couple and a pansexual MC so obviously I had to have it immediately. Rating: 4.5 stars
As a self-confessed Christina Henry addict, I obviously ordered this one straight away. But when I got the opportunity to read an eARC, I leapt at it. This was a little different from the others, not a retelling but its own creepy story of witches, woods and murders, and I loved it. Rating: 4 stars!
Death is too easy. Better to make every moment of the rest of a person’s life agony. When Netgalley announced audiobook review copies, I was all over it! And though I have criticisms for the Netgalley shelf app, I'm so glad I got my hands on this one! The Only Good Indians, written by Stephen … Continue reading The Only Good Indians by Stephen Graham Jones (Audiobook review)
She was their curse made flesh, and everything - the blood and the blight, the darkness and slaughter to come - it was all within her. If I made a shelf of 'books that make me want to burn the world down and rebuild from the ashes', this would be first on the shelf - … Continue reading The Year of the Witching by Alexis Henderson (Review)
You must come for me, Noemí. You have to save me. I cannot save myself as much as I wish to, I am bound, threads like iron through my mind and my skin and it's there. In the walls. It does not release its hold on me so I must ask you to spring me … Continue reading Mexican Gothic by Silvia Moreno-Garcia (Review)
She has the human look of a domesticated animal. The twitter hype on this one was ridiculous, with everyone talking about how it put them off their food and saying things like 'gross' and 'unputdownable'. Obviously, as a connoisseur of gross and unputdownable things, I had to have it. And everyone was absolutely right. Rating: … Continue reading Tender is the Flesh by Agustina Bazterrica (Review)
