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 Place Inside the Storm by Bradley W. Wright

Featured

Goodreads 4/5 stars for a Scifi/Dystopian novel with a very relatable and ownvoices autistic main character. "Being weird is okay." There are two words which are very prominent in my notes for this ARC: same and relatable. The way Tara felt emotions from her parents wash over her, the way her sister Zoie said she … Continue reading Review: The Place Inside the Storm by Bradley W. Wright

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

Review: Lambs Can Always Become Lions by Charlotte Anne Hamilton

5/5 arrows Goodreads Rise and rise until lambs become lions. This was a good book. Like, I-wish-I-could-write-like-that good. Robin Hood, Marian, Allan, Edda, Will, Little John ... the protagonists of this story are all well fleshed-out characters who I couldn't help but love. Their relationships (especially between Robin and Marian AH) were both a joy … Continue reading Review: Lambs Can Always Become Lions by Charlotte Anne Hamilton

E-ARC review: The Belles by Dhonielle Clayton

5/5 blazing stars Goodreads "We are not blessed by the Goddess of Beauty. We are cursed." CW/TW for The Belles: sexual assault and graphic queer death. Where to begin?

Plastic Wings by C.T. Callahan – ebook review

5/5 stars ☆☆☆☆☆ Goodreads "Caring about people is a double-edged sword." Plastic Wings is not your basic YA dystopian where the MC falls in love with an angel. 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. Callahan – ebook review

I will definitely be reading the prequel to this … Continue reading E-ARC review: Ramses The Damned: The Passion of Cleopatra
