Book Review: Raybearer by Jordan Ifueko

Everyone was talking about Raybearer in the lead-up to its release, and as with most hyped YA fantasy books I was a little cautious going in. I'm a reader that can really be let down by hype, however I'm here to say that Raybearer is absolutely worth your time and is one of the best books of the year!

Book Review: Killing for Company: The Case of Dennis Nilson by Brian Masters

I'm an enthusiastic listener of true crime podcasts, having been caught up in the My Favorite Murder craze back when it started, but have read very few true crime books. While I've moved on to better and more responsible podcasts, my interest in true crime remains. When the opportunity to read Killing for Company crossed my path, I decided to give it a go, despite some of my discomfort around true crime reporting and attitudes.

Book Review: Dangerous Remedy by Kat Dunn

Dangerous Remedy has been on my radar for ages -- I love a good historical fantasy and the French Revolution setting caught my eye. I think that for a reader like me, who has become incredibly picky about what I do and do not like in YA over the years, this one didn't quite hit the mark. However, I think you'll enjoy this one if you're a dedicated YA reader and are looking for a fantasy with a different flavour.

Blog Tour: The Trouble with Peace by Joe Abercrombie

Welcome to my stop on the Trouble with Peace blog tour! As you all may be aware, Joe Abercrombie is one of my absolute favourite authors and a new book from him is always an event in my reading year. Given my absolute love of A Little Hatred, the first book in his new First Law series, I had sky-high expectations for its sequel -- and they were unsurprisingly met.

Book Review: The House in the Cerulean Sea by TJ Klune

I had been hearing nothing but rave reviews for The House in the Cerulean Sea when it came out this spring -- what better time for a wholesome book than during quarantine? I didn't get around to reading it until August, but I'm so glad I picked up this lovely book! A cosy read that pairs perfectly with a rainy day, a cup of tea, and a cat in your lap, The House in the Cerulean Sea is sure to warm you heart.

Book Review: The Doors of Eden by Adrian Tchaikovsky

A new book from Adrian Tchaikovsky, one of my favourite authors, is always an exciting event. The Doors of Eden was a book that immediately caught my attention with its stunning cover and intriguing concept. I had sky-high expectations for this book, and I am so pleased to say thatthey were absolutely met! The Doors of Eden is an incredibly accessible, fun, and thought-provoking science fiction story with Tchaikovsky's signature twist.
