I really liked This Lie Will Kill You (and reviewed it last year) and I have a complete soft spot for YA thriller types, especially when there's a murder mystery involved. So I was keen to read this one. I didn't even realise it was so queer until I started it, which was an excellent surprise. Rating: 4 stars!
I'm a sucker for a YA thriller and when I heard that this one was a sapphic murder mystery, I just had to request it. And then a friend hyped this up when they realised I had a review copy, so I bumped it right up my TBR. I'm glad I did, because this was a great, easy marathon read that I couldn't put down until I knew what was going on. Rating: 3.5 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
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!
"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)
"They're brave," Mary said. "But we are too. Because while they're out there, saving the world, we're the ones they come home to." I've actually come back and edited this review since my original read-through as the longer I've sat with this book the more uncomfortable I am with it and the more I dislike … Continue reading The Extraordinaries by TJ Klune (Review)
Instead, I'm here; I'm hers. And now that I've steeped in the fragrant darkness of Elizabeth's chambers, I'll never let myself sink back to these rancid depths. This had been on my radar for a while, of course. Blood, a mysterious monstrous woman and her companion, sapphic yearning and a touch of magic and murder. … Continue reading Blood Countess by Lana Popović (Review)
