Book Review: Spellswept and Snowspelled by Stephanie Burgis

I’ve been seeing these novellas, particularly Snowspelled, pop up all over my bookish social media feeds for ages. However, I was compelled to buy and read them when I found out that Emma Newman, one of my favourite authors, had been selected to narrate the audiobooks. Fully convinced, I dove into Spellswept and Snowspelled and I'm so glad I made the time to read them!

Book Review: Atlas Alone by Emma Newman

By now you all know how much I absolutely love Emma Newman’s Planetfall books, so there’s no surprise that I was eagerly awaiting, and ultimately ended up loving, this book. The first sequel in the Planetfall series, Atlas Alone picks up six months after the events of After Atlas and deals with the consequences of those events in deep, thought-provoking, and totally horrifying way that only Emma Newman can achieve.

Book Review: Jade City by Fonda Lee

Jade City has been on my radar for ages -- I’ve owned a copy for at least a year, but never got around to it. In an attempt to actually read the diverse fantasy that I keep buying, I decided to give it a try and wow. This is another book to add to the ‘why didn’t I read this sooner?’ shelf. An antidote to the medieval Eurpoean settings and stories that dominate modern fantasy, Jade City is a rich and wild ride about power, politics, and family.
