I adored Kalynn Bayron's debut, CINDERELLA IS DEAD, and so I had to request THIS POISON HEART when I saw that gorgeous cover. If you like Black girl magic, Little Shop of Horrors and gothic atmospheres, this is the perfect book. Rating: 5 stars!
This YA thriller releases in a couple of weeks, and it's one to look out for if you enjoy books like Karen M. McManus's One of Us is Lying series or A Good Girl's Guide to Murder by Holly Jackson. The Last Girl is also publishing in the US under 'The Mary Shelley Club', a title I love just as much! 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 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'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
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!
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 real one, the original, was Honour thy father and mother. But he purged my mother from history. As far as he was concerned, there was only one person who should get the honouring: him. II was completely drawn in by the cover for this one. Live by the rules, die by the rules? What … Continue reading The Rules by Tracy Darnton (Review)
When your sister murders three hundred people, you can't help but wonder why - especially if you were one of the intended victims - though I do forgive her, if you can believe it. THE MAJESTIES is being released by Pushkin Press on August 6th. I requested this one on a whim, based on the … Continue reading The Majesties by Tiffany Tsao (Review)
