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
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
My first Marvel novel, and now I'm hooked. Aconyte Books is bringing out several new series focusing on different Marvel characters, and Domino: Strays was appealing to me after seeing Domino in Deadpool 2 and wanting more of a mercenary with a lucky touch. Rating: 3.5 stars
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!
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!
Releasing 22nd September 2020, The Silvered Serpents is the much anticipated sequel to the Parisian fantasy heist novel, The Gilded Wolves. Beware spoilers for the first novel, though this review is spoiler-free for The Silvered Serpents. Make sure to pick up this sequel that is, against all odds, better than the book it's following up on. Rating: 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.
