ARC review: 100 Days of Sunlight by Abbie Emmons

The choice to request this book for review was deeply personal to me. As you may or may not know, a couple of years ago my husband suffered a catastrophic injury at work and broke his back. After two months in hospital, he came home in a wheelchair. I myself am also suffering from a […]

Dance of Thieves by Mary E Pearson

I will probably spell everyone’s name wrong since I listened to the audiobook and have pretty much imagined them spelt my way for the whole time I listened to this. So I kinda low key loved this. I felt like I was in really good hands while I listened to this. The narrators were pleasant […]

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 […]

Girls of Paper and Fire by Natasha Ngan

There were some things I liked about this book and some things I didn’t, so I’m trying to go middle of the road and rate this a solid 3 stars. I’ll start with the things I didn’t like: Lei had super special pretty beautiful eyes that made her super special and she was treated differently […]

Hunted by Meagan Spooner

I originally received a copy of this book for review from Edelweiss, but I have listened to the audiobook for the purposes of this review.   Marketed as a retelling of Beauty and the Beast, which is only my favourite fairytale, no big deal, starring a girl in a cloak on the cover and with […]

Sun Sets on Study Series as Dawn Study Ends

I don’t even know where to start with this book. You know how each instalment of a series is supposed to be more epic than the last? Well, at one point Snyder has something like 28 characters ‘onscreen’, all with different motivations, characterisations, and backstories, including small children with more sass than they have the […]

Emily Chambers Spirit Medium Book 3: Evermore

Ghosts are disappearing in both the mortal world and the Waiting Area, and it’s up to Emily to figure out why before her beloved Jacob ceases to exist. Also, will Celia please stop pressuring her to marry Theo? Jeez. Evermore, like Possession and The Medium before it, gives us more of the same that we […]

Also, Jacob is broody. Possession brings us largely the same as The Medium in […]

The Heat Is On In ‘A Promise Of Fire’ by Amanda Bouchet

The Heat Is On In ‘A Promise Of Fire’ by Amanda Bouchet

For some reason I believed this was a YA book. It’s not. It’s very adult fantasy. But I’m reviewing it anyway because I was granted a review copy. SUMMARY Cat, a circus performer, is identified as a powerful magoi and kidnapped by a warlord named Griffin and his band of ultra-sexy warriors, intending to use […]
