Book Review: The Familars by Stacey Halls

I love historical fiction, but it tends to get cast aside in favour of science fiction and fantasy for me. Enter The Familiars, a gorgeous book set during the 17th century witch trials in England, with a cover that I couldn’t resist. I won an early copy of this book back in July and am kicking myself for not reading it sooner! This debut novel investigates class, privilege, female friendships, and the danger of being a social outcast, all with a touch of the unknown.

Book Review: Reign of the Fallen by Sarah Glenn Marsh

I didn’t know much about Reign of the Fallen,  but I absolutely loved its gorgeous cover and had heard good things about it from my friend Judith.  In fact, her review is the only one I have seen. I chose to listen to the audiobook, but for the first time on this blog I don’t think I would recommend that. The narrator was just okay and made some strange choices with voices and accents that I found a bit distracting.

Weekly Wrap-Up: 15 March 2019

Happy Friday! This month has been a bit wild so far, but at least I've had plenty of time for reading! I've been so busy these days. I'm ramping up my Bookstagram activity, filming videos like crazy, watching ungodly amounts of RuPaul's Drag Race, and have been making progress on my most anticipated book of the year. Basically, I'm ready for a nap.

Book Review: Truthwitch by Susan Dennard

I’ve been hearing amazing things about the Witchlands books for ages, but had never picked them up. With the release of Bloodwitch, the third book in the series, in February, I decided to finally pick up Truthwitch. I’m kicking myself for not reading this sooner -- Truthwitch was an absolute delight and one of my favourite YA fantasies this year.

Book Review: The Raven Tower by Ann Leckie

The Raven Tower is a funny one because if you described it to me, I’d be sure it wouldn't be my thing. However, I am so glad I took a chance on this weird and wonderful fantasy debut -- I think it's a book that will stick with me for a long time. Ann Leckie is the author of the mind-bending, completely cool Ancillary Justice. I adore that book and was so excited to see how her writing style would transfer over to fantasy.
