Mini Graphic Novel Reviews: Nimona by Noelle Stevenson and Mooncakes by Suzanne Walker and Wendy Xu

I confess that I’m not much of a graphic novel reader, however sometimes one comes along that captures my interest. I don’t often have a huge amount to say about graphic novels, so I’m doing two mini reviews of two very different books today!


Weekly Wrap-Up: 13 September 2019

Happy Friday, all! I am not entirely sure where the first half of September went -- it sort of swirled into a black hole and it's suddenly the middle of the month. How does that even happen?

Book Review: City of Lies by Sam Hawke

City of Lies had been languishing on my TBR since its release last year. Despite hearing amazing things about this book, I just never seemed to have the time to read it. I finally decided to pick up the audiobook with a spare Audible credit and I’m kicking myself for not reading it sooner! Part political fantasy, part closed-room mystery, City of Lies is a gorgeous tale of family, betrayal, and war.

Book Review: Bone China by Laura Purcell

I absolutely loved Purcell’s first Gothic novel, The Silent Companions, but was disappointed in the second, The Corset. Naturally, I was very curious about Bone China, her latest book, to see if it would recapture everything I loved about The Silent Companions. It absolutely did -- Bone China is a fantastic addition to her growing repertoire of Gothic fiction.

Reading Wrap-Up: August 2019

We're time traveling again -- August feels like it absolutely flew by! September is here now, and it's time to look back on the books that I read last month. It was a great month for reading, despite two DNFs, and I have found some new favourite books of the year!
