  • Crooked Kingdom by Leigh Bardugo
    -
    My Heart is Not The Same

    Crooked Kingdom took my heart and ripped it to shreds. I wasn't prepared, although I don't think you ever be prepared for the events that occurred in Crooked Kingdom. Leigh Bardugo's writing was on point, her characters were on point and the story was just asdfghjkl. There's just something about the way that Bardugo writes that has me so engrossed within the world she creates. Seeing the many choices each of the characters had to face was interesting, it definitely exposed some of their underlying issues and the problems they still had to face. This further emphasized many of the obstacles they still had to face, that Six of Crows wasn't the end of their problems. For some of them, it was merely the beginning. Read More

  • Character Confessions
    Beautiful People

    Beautiful People is a writing blog meme hosted by Cait @ Paper Fury and Sky @ Further Up and Further. They post questions at the beginning of the month to do with characters in everyone's current WIP. This month's questions are about characters this time and you'll be hearing from the three main characters in A Mirror of Smoke. Each of them are like my brain children (well they did spawn from my mind) and I can't wait to share their stories with you. Read More

  • The Bone Witch by Rin Chupeco
    -
    Diversity, Magic and Dancing Galore!

    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
    -
    Can I move into this world, please?

    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
    -
    A Beautiful Backstory to the Queen of Hearts

    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
    -
    A Book Which Played Games With My Mind

    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
