Love From Scratch by Amy Hutton

When I read the blurb for Love From Scratch, I instantly fell in love with the idea of this flashy, confident, golden retriever movie star hero and this ‘grumpy’, reserved, black cat heroine. And I’m so pleased that from the very opening line, I fell head over heels for Love From Scratch and loved every […]

Chainbreaker (Timekeeper #2) by Tara Sim

Chainbreaker is the second book in the Timekeeper trilogy by Tara Sim and as a second book, it does not suffer from middle book syndrome. I thoroughly enjoyed all aspects of this book, and I found it highly entertaining and engaging the entire way through with no sagging parts or filler. This series is no […]

Timekeeper by Tara Sim

Timekeeper by Tara Sim is an imaginative, original, alternate history steampunk set in London in the late 1800s, and it’s about time. Specifically, magical clocks that control time, and when they go out of whack, they affect the time around them as well. I can’t get over how much I loved this book. I was […]

Dust Spells by Andrea Lynn

Dust Spells by Andrea Lynn is a young adult historical fantasy novel that I think is best described as 12 Dancing Princesses meets The Diviners by Libba Bray. It’s set in the 1930s in the Dust Bowl and tells the story of three sisters and one vagrant who discover a magical world where not all […]

From Blood And Ash by Jennifer L Armentrout

Let me preface this by saying that if you can get over the staggeringly slow start, past the shockingly bad worldbuilding, and through the molasses of a character whose life is so bland and boring she makes Auren from the Plated Prisoner series almost look like she’s actually doing something with her life (besides wandering […]

Kingdom of the Wicked by Kerri Maniscalco

So I kind of missed the hype on this book (as I so often do). It was published in 2020 and it has, as of March 2024, over a quarter of a million ratings on Goodreads, which means more than that many have read the book. I actually wasn’t even that interested in reading this […]

Divine Rivals (Letters of Enchantment #1) By Rebecca Ross

I had seen this book around and dismissed it, not because I didn’t like the author, because I do (I quite enjoyed her debut novel The Queen’s Rising), but because I have zero interest in stories set in World War I and II. It wasn’t until the book won the  Goodreads Choice Award Winner for […]

Gallant by V.E. Schwab

My first DNF of 2024. I find this novel incredibly unengaging. I like Schwab as a writer. I enjoyed both The Near Witch and The Invisible Life of Addie Larou. Schwab has a lyrical, whimsical, old-fashioned style of writing where every word is a masterpiece carefully woven together. The worldbuilding is lush and I feel […]
