I'm so excited to be on the blog tour for this incredible, sapphic dark fantasy novel. I knew I was going to love this sleeping beauty retelling, following the villainous rise of protagonist Alyce - and following her falling in love with Aurora. And I was right. Rating: 5 stars!
Okay, as if I haven't talked about Cute Mutants by SJ Whitby enough. This series is an absolute favourite of mine and I've loved it from the first chapter of the first book! So obviously, we had to do a book tag for these amazing characters!
I got the rest of the Wayfarers series for Christmas 2020 (late to the party, I know) and ended up reading them all over the course of a few days. So I was really excited to get a review copy of The Galaxy, and the Ground Within. I highly recommend the audiobooks for this whole series, they're excellently narrated and such comfort listens. 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.
Everyone's been talking about this book all year, and I've been patiently waiting for the UK release date (January 7th, 2021). So when I was offered the chance to review it for the upcoming blog tour, I don't think I've ever answered an email so quickly in my life! And boy did The Henna Wars hold up to the hype! 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 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
Jebi is an artist, and all they want to do is paint. Not get dragged into a revolutionary plot, steal a dragon and fall in love. And yet. I love this sci-fi epic. Rating: 4.5 stars
