    Three Dark Crowns by Kendare Blake

    I don't want any of the queens to be devoured, however, because I love them all. Three Dark Crowns was an incredible story, and knowing Kendare Blake's wonderful prose from her Anna series, I knew she wouldn't disappoint in this first installment in this new series. My excitement for One Dark Throne is real, and I cannot wait to see where this series is taken to next. Read More

    The Bone Witch by Rin Chupeco

    The Bone Witch was a beautifully diverse book, with moments of beauty and moments of horror. Plus, beautiful cover! The Bone Witch is definitely one of my favourite reads of this year. It was my cup of Tea. (I'll stop with the puns... maybe) Perhaps, not enough to beat Strange the Dreamer but it still ranks very high! Exploring the story of The Bone Witch along with its world and the Eight Kingdoms was delightful and impressive. The diverse elements of world building were clearly shown which WAS EXCELLENT and seeing these diverse elements integrated into the society so well had me in awe. The prose was captivating, it clung onto me and didn't let me go. Read More

    Strange the Dreamer by Laini Taylor

    Strange the Dreamer is one of my favourite reads of 2017 thus far. I am in love with Lazlo Strange. A weird confession but I'm also in love with the entire world that this book is set in. The Kingdom of Zosma and the City of Weep are fantastical places filled with imagination, knowledge and an intriguing mystery. Read More

    Heartless by Marissa Meyer

    Heartless was a well-written retelling of the backstory of the Queen of Hearts. I hate that Heartless is a standalone novel, I wanted so much more from this story. The backstory of the infamous Queen of Hearts, the main villain in Alice in Wonderland was one of trials, tribulations, and terror. Read More

    Caraval by Stephanie Garber

    Caraval was a book that was full of mystery, intrigue and magic. The cover was perhaps what drew me to the book most (I mean look at it, it's beautiful), but the story was still equally as amazing. I loved how I was drawn into a game which changed when I least expected it... Read More
