Phantom Heart by Kelly Creagh

I have many feelings about this book. First of all, I think it did an absolutely wonderful job of telling a tale inspired by Gaston Leroux’s beloved gothic classic, The Phantom of the Opera, better known to many people worldwide by the phenomenal West End musical and lesser known from the gorgeous but not quite […]

The Monster of Her Age by Danielle Binks

Sometimes you find a book that speaks to your soul so personally, it’s as if the author ripped open your chest, dissected your heart under a microscope, found a whole bunch of things you love and identify with, and then wrote a book about it. To say that I understand why representation is important is […]

The Left-Handed Booksellers of London by Garth Nix

I originally received this as an ARC that I was unable to read in 2020 due to nearly dying (my bad!). So this review is super late, however I did purchase my own physical copy. I loved how urban myths and old wives tales were woven so seamlessly into this alternate 1980s London. The worldbuilding […]

Cemetery Boys by Aiden Thomas

Cemetery Boys is an #ownvoices book about a gay trans Latinx boy trying to prove his place in his community: he believes that if he can prove he is a brujo, a kind of Latino witchdoctor who can summon, guide, and banish the spirits of the departed, instead of one of the traditionally feminine healing […]

Kind of a Big Deal by Shannon Hale

When I first red this book’s blurb, I was pretty excited. A book about going into and experiencing other stories! Pretty cool concept! Then, after I borrowed this audiobook from my library and started listening to it, I saw a couple of reviews that were not so favourable. I honestly do not understand all the […]

You Have a Match by Emma Lord

The title and cover of this book are a bit misleading, and led me to think this was going to be some kind of romance-centric plot similar to You’ve Got Mail. But I am SO glad I read the blurb, because it’s not just about a summer romance: it’s about a secret sister – a […]

The Dead Queens Club

In a world where I rarely pick up books for my own reading pleasure – and by that I mean I’m usually so guilt-wracked over my unread ARCs that I have 600 books on my TBR (at least!), I just could not stop thinking about this book. I knew I wanted to read it from […]

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: […]

Bookish and the Beast (Once Upon a Con #3) by Ashley Poston

So basically my favourite fairy tale taking place in my favourite fake fandom (Starfield) by one of my most recent favourite authors… I just loved everything about this book. It’s the third in a series, so the worldbuilding was already established and didn’t need to be as heavy as the previous two books – though […]
