I totally requested this book based off of a tweet from the author where they mentioned 'pansexual bloodmage'. That was enough for me initially, and after seeing the cover reveal, I was sold. This book absolutely didn't disappoint me, and I'm so glad that I decided to pick it up! A.M. Strickland is going to be a new must-read author for me, I think. Rating: 5 stars!
4 stars. This incredible debut has been on my radar forever, and it absolutely lived up to all the hype I'd heard. This is a strong start to a fantasy series and I'm already so impatient for the next book! Not to mention, look at that gorgeous cover.
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!
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 had to pick this up for the badass female MC and the pirate ship energy. Not to mention that tagline 'Trader. Fighter. Survivor.' I love it. This wasn't quite the book I was hoping for, but it was definitely good enough to get me reading the final book in the duology when it releases. Rating: 3.5 stars
For old fans and newcomers alike, The Rise of Kyoshi is the perfect book for you. It's sapphic, amazingly visual and expands on the Avatar universe in a wonderful way. I highly recommend it if you love badass female characters even half as much as I do. Rating: 5 stars!
I'm a sucker for a retelling, and this Romeo and Juliet retelling in 1920s Shanghai was getting so much hype that I couldn't stay away. It was worth every bit of hype and I can't wait for the sequel now, even if I am full of fear for the end of this story! 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
