The Gilded Cage by Lynette Noni

I genuinely think it’s harder to write a 5 star review than it is to write a 1 star review. It’s hard to list what a book does so well when it does everything so well. I genuinely had no issues with this book at all and enjoyed every minute of it. This book is […]

The Near Witch by Victoria Schwab

Considering this was published in 2011, I’m surprised this is my first Victoria Schwab novel. What’s even weirder is that I tried so very hard to listen to this on audio but my god the narrator is so bad. She’s basically reading a list with no emotional input whatsoever. I was so frustrated listening that […]

For the Wolf by Hannah Whitten

For the Wolf appears to be a Little Red Riding Hood retelling: the main character is called Red and she wears a red cloak, which is a point of interest on the cover. There’s a scary dark wood and a Big Bad Wolf. But don’t be fooled. This isn’t a cool interpretation of Little Red […]

Set Fire to the Gods by Sara Raasch and Kristen Simmons

I have a definite weakness, and it’s when gods appear in something akin to a human form and live among their subjects. It doesn’t matter whether you believe in them, because they’re real whether you have faith or not. It appeals to my atheist heart. So when this book was announced as Gladiator meets Avatar: […]

The Prison Healer by Lynette Noni

Before I get into a review of this book, the first thing I want to say is that if you start to read it, PLEASE finish it! Do not DNF. It is worth finishing. So this book. I enjoyed just about everything about this book. I loved the main character, Kiva. Sometimes I feel that […]

Witch by Finbar Hawkins

I did not enjoy most of this book. I don’t really want to write a ‘negative’ review, because I can see how some people might have enjoyed this. But the writing style – although unique, and with an excellent narrative voice, did not gel with me. The book was written with archaic language, playing with […]

These Rebel Waves by Sara Raasch

I thoroughly enjoyed this audiobook. Sara Raasch has a very competent writing style, and this book hit everything I love about fantasy. A unique magic system: this one based on botanicals: that’s right, the plants are magic! A brave, strong, selfless heroine A handsome rogue of indeterminate sexuality who is not overtly romantically attracted to […]

Crown of Feathers by Nicki Pau Preto

I have never before in my life skipped parts of a book and still finished. This book was such a conundrum! The good parts were enjoyable, but I literally skipped some boring parts and didn’t miss anything. There were a lot of points of view in this novel. And I mean, like, the blurb doesn’t […]
