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'm a huge Karen M. McManus fan, and I reviewed One of Us is Lying here and One of Us is Next here. So when I saw the chance to get on a blog tour for this incredible book with The Write Reads, I jumped at it. I absolutely loved this complicated family drama between estranged cousins and their mysterious grandmother. Rating: 5 stars
My first ever whole series review as I review (ramble about) The Lunar Chronicles series, fairytale retellings in a scifi world that literally blew me all the way into a book hangover.
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
I'll admit, my attention was caught by this gorgeous cover and by the tagline 'imagine a world where touching was illegal'. Perhaps for obvious reasons this seemed like it might be an interesting read and, despite what it might seem, was a good distraction from our viral pandemic. I hadn't read any of Kristin Cast's previous books, but I had heard of them and decided this was a good way to dip into her writing. Rating: 3.5 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
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
This was my first Kerri Maniscalco books, and I'm very grateful to @HodderBooks for sending me the eARC. I couldn't put it down for a second. With vengeful witches, a wrathful demon and mystery that kept me turning pages, I can't wait for book 2. Rating: 4 stars
