The Curses (The Graces #2) by Laure Eve

The Curses is the sequel to The Graces, told from the point of view of the youngest Grace sibling, air witch Summer. With the time elapsed between releases, I did re-read The Graces: I planned on doing a light, skimming re-read, but it sucked me in and I really enjoyed it – probably more the […]

Onyx and Ivory by Mindee Arnett

I really enjoyed this book from Mindee Arnett. When I borrow books from my local library, as I did for this audiobook, I often don’t bother looking them up on Goodreads beforehand because it’s not a monetary investment, so the only thing I’m st to lose if I don’t like it is time. So I […]

The Diviners by Libba Bray

The Diviners is a beautifully written tale of 1920s New York and the mysterious gifted people, the Diviners, who inhabit it, when, unknowingly, they stumble across a serial killer leaving behind clues that link the killing spree to the Occult. Evie O’Neill, from Ohio, is an attention-seeking, hard-drinking, party-loving flapper who is shipped off to […]

Navigating the Stars by Maria V Snyder

Although I prefer to read fantasy these days, sci-fi was actually my first love (please don’t tell my fantasy books). I’ve read and loved almost all of Snyder’s books, including her original sci-fi Inside Out, so I was pretty keen to dive into this one, especially since it was starting with a younger, mouthier heroine […]

The Great Hunt by Wendy Higgins

I actually had a hard time believing this was published in 2016 since it seems to be a direct response to  Twilight in the brooding boy/star-crossed girl romance. I was sure it had been published in 2008 or so, as a direct response to the emotionally abusive Twilight relationship. Paxton is just so damn rude […]

The Heart Forger (The Bone Witch #2)

I’m finding it really hard to write this review, because although I really enjoyed The Heart Forger, I can’t tell you specifically why. I liked that there was heaps of action on the present tense this time around, as opposed to just dropping titbits about the past tense story to keep our interest. I liked […]

Give the Dark My Love

I was super excited to read a book about a magical healer facing a plague – even if they call alchemy ‘science’ in this book, it’s totally magic – and this one definitely delivered. It’s about a girl called Nedra (narrated beautifully by Mhairi Morrison with a lovely soft Scottish accent) from a small northern […]

The Longest Ride by Nicholas Sparks

I am officially giving up after three months having read nearly 200 pages. There is just so much damn dialogue about the most banal uninteresting things. There is absolutely zero chemistry between anyone. Everyone is so one dimensional and I have no idea how anyone found them interesting enough to pursue a relationship, let alone […]

The Enchanted Sonata by Heather Dixon Wallwork

Heather Dixon Wallwork is one of my absolute favourite authors of all time. She wrote Entwined, a 12 Dancing Princesses retelling which I have never reviewed here on the blog because the book is just too precious and the review would basically consist of my screaming for ten minutes. She also wrote Illusionarium, which was […]

Two Dark Reigns (Three Dark Crowns #3)

I’m enjoying this series more as it goes on, I think. I feel as if every novel adds a twist or two, solves a riddle or two, and amps up the intensity. I’d love to see Blake’s notes on the history of the queens. I know the losing queens are basically erased from history, but […]
