Review: Of Fire and Starts by Audrey Coulthurst

Featured

Goodreads 4/5 fiery stars for a f/f fantasy novel with a forbidden romance. "...I knew that given the chance to do everything over again, I would willingly make the same mistakes twenty times over.”  Of Fire and Stars is one of those books that gets better as you keep reading, in my opinion. Of course, I … Continue reading Review: Of Fire and Starts by Audrey Coulthurst

Review: The Savior’s Champion by Jenna Moreci

Featured

3/5 stars for a book I had high expectations for, perhaps too high. The Savior's Champion can be described as a Spartacus: Blood and Sand meets The Maze Runner. There's a lot of blood, tits, swearing and wine as well as a cliché cardboard 'heroic' main character and barely any worldbuilding for the first half … Continue reading Review: The Savior’s Champion by Jenna Moreci

Why I write ownvoices

I read to escape, to explore different worlds, and to become someone else. I write for the same reasons, but also because I don't see myself in books.

I'm not even sure if you can call the beings that are killing humans angels - that's just what the MC Evie calls them; dark angels. They … Continue reading Plastic Wings by C.T.

[TW ableism] the healing and curing trope in fiction: problematic and harmful

A recent E-ARC I got to read through Netgalley inspired me to write a post about the healing/curing trope in fiction. When you hear the world 'healing' you may immediately think of diseases like cancer, diabetes, arthritis etc. Some of these are chronic, and all of them can be quite serious. We're still looking for … Continue reading [TW ableism] the healing and curing trope in fiction: problematic and harmful

Crooked Kingdom – book review

Goodreads 5/5 blazing stars 'No mourners.' 'No funerals.' I can't believe this is it. The duology has ended, I have read both books. The ending? In my opinion, it was the right ending. It was sad, but there were positive things as well. Saying goodbye to Inej, Nina, Kaz, Jesper, Wylan and Matthias was NOT … Continue reading Crooked Kingdom – book review
