Through the White Wood by Jessica Leake

Through the White Wood appealed to me because I love elemental-based magic, especially when it’s ice/water vs fire: I also learned through reading the book that it’s based in an area of Russia centuries ago, except this version of Russia has real magic. I really liked that it was based here, and it was really […]

The Hundredth Queen by Emily R King

Before the Devil Breaks You (The Diviners #3) by Libba Bray

This book has everything I’ve grown to love and adore about The Diviners: a supernatural Scooby gang, spooky atmosphere, scary villains, awesome language (I nearly said ‘Everything copacetic?’ to a colleague the other day). It’s confronting: there’s racism, attempted rape, domestic abuse, homophobia, and all kinds of bigotry that make me really mad, but all […]
