Book Review: The Turn of the Key by Ruth Ware

I read and enjoyed my first Ruth Ware book a couple of months ago and was desperate to immediately get my hands on more of her work. Fortunately, my sister had a copy of Ware’s latest novel, The Turn of the Key, handy and I grabbed it from her as soon as I could. I expected a fun and spooky thriller, and I got so much more than that. Filled with twists and turns, The Turn of the Key is a great book for all your spooky fall and winter needs.

Book Review: The Guinevere Deception by Kiersten White

I’m always on the lookout for new and interesting retellings that are a little different from the standard fairy tale retellings we see so often in YA, so I was immediately drawn to The Guinevere Deception. I had never read anything by Kiersten White before, so I didn’t quite know what to expect. I ended up really enjoying this book!

Book Review: Truly Devious by Maureen Johnson

It has been hard to escape the hype for Truly Devious, a book that has taken the YA book world by storm, and I was totally taken in by it. I try to not let hype dictate my reading choices -- I so often end up disappointed -- but I was just so curious about this book. I had never read YA crime before, knew that it was the first in a trilogy, and knew that the author is a true crime fan -- that was all. I had one false start with this book because I couldn't get past the main character, however I ended up giving it a try on audiobook and absolutely devoured it.

Book Review: Priest of Bones by Peter McLean

I had taken a long, unintentional break from grimdark, one of my favourite genres, but started to slowly return to it in the second half of 2019. Enter Priest of Bones, a book that I had heard a lot about but hadn’t actually read. I bought it awhile back because the author is lovely on Twitter -- one of the main reasons I buy books, honestly -- and it had been sitting on my shelf for ages. Now that I've read it, I'm officially adding it to list of ‘why didn’t I read this sooner?’ books -- I absolutely loved it!

Weekly Wrap-Up: 25 October 2019

Happy Friday! I can’t believe that we’re nearly at the end of October. Halloween is coming up, I’ve got bookish plans for the weekend, and I’ve been reading up a storm! This week, I’ve managed to read the same number of books as I did in the month of September. Crazy, huh? Sci-fi and fantasy haven’t been on the agenda much, but I’ve been tearing through some great books anyway.

Weekly Wrap-Up: 18 October 2019

Hello friends, happy Friday! I, for one, cannot believe we are halfway through the spookiest month of the year. I've read a ton of books this week (I don't know what magical thing happened this week but I'm definitely pleased), and today is the start of the Off the Grid readathon so I should get even more reading done this weekend!
