I've been so excited for this full length novel-in-verse from Nikita Gill. I've read and adored some other verse novels lately, mostly from Elizabeth Acevedo, and so when I heard my favourite poet would be writing one, I knew I had to have it. Rating: 4.5 stars!
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!
This one was on my radar forever and as more and more hype came in for it, I got more excited to read it. I don't know how it took me so long to get around to it. Once I picked it up, I literally read this in one sitting - it really was that good, and a lot like watching a movie unfold in front of me. Rating: 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!
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!
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 read this book completely blind, having requested it based on: my ridiculous run of 4 or 5 star reads with Pushkin Press, the hype I'd seen on twitter and that gorgeous cover. I'm actually kind of glad I read it with no idea what was happening, because it meant that this book swept me away with its emotive story. Rating: 4 stars!
The Memory of Souls is the third book in the A Chorus of Dragon series, following: book one, The Ruin of Kings which I reviewed last Wednesday; and book two, The Name of All Things which I reviewed last Friday! There are two more books to go in this epic fantasy series, and I can't wait for them - this one released earlier this month, so be sure to grab it while it's hot. Rating: 5 stars!
The Name of All Things is the second book in the A Chorus of Dragons series, following The Ruin of Kings, which I reviewed two days ago! We're continuing on my review series of this epic fantasy series as the third book, The Memory of Souls came out at the beginning of this month, and I'm urging you all to pick up this series! This review will be spoiler-free for The Name of All Things but may contain spoilers for The Ruin of Kings. Rating: 4 stars!
I received a finished copy of The Memory of Souls for review, and I'm a complete sucker for epic fantasy (especially with a dragon on the cover, I'm only SO strong), and so I'm marathon reading the entire series (at 600 pages each, too. Nobody tell my TBR). I had no idea what I was getting into, and honestly? It was a wild ride and nothing like I expected. Rating: 4 stars!
