The Nevernight Chronicles has been one of my favourite series since I discovered it about this time last year. I loved Nevernight, absolutely adored Godsgrave, and therefore had sky-high expectations for the concluding book, Darkdawn. Unfortunately after two amazing books, the final installment in this series was a serious disappointment. I am going to keep this review on the shorter side, as I don’t want to spoil anything for anyone who hasn't read it yet!
I have been very vocal about my love of Jade City since I read it earlier this summer. Fortunately for me, the sequel, Jade War, came out in July, so I could continue on with the story almost immediately! I very rarely read books in series so close to each other, but I absolutely could not resist jumping into Jade War as soon as I could. Jade War continues the story of Jade City with just as much tension and excitement of its predecessor.
Earlier this summer I read and loved Barker’s debut novel, Age of Assassins, so I was extremely excited to have the chance to read and review his latest book. Not only does The Bone Ships have a stunning cover (and you know I’m a sucker for a good cover), it takes place on huge ships made of sea dragon bones. Basically, this book is Justine catnip and dove into it with extremely high expectations.
I’ve been in a big slump when it comes to YA fantasy – it has been absolute ages since I read the genre consistently. Despite this, I was totally drawn to The House of Salt and Sorrows (possibly due to that fantastic cover, look at it!) I didn’t know a huge amount about it before picking it up in the shop and was absolutely delighted by this fantastic fairy tale retelling.
Welcome to my stop on the A Little Hatred blog tour! I cannot tell you how thrilled I was to hear that one of my favourite authors was coming out with a new book. Not just that, he was launching us back into the First Law world, one of my favorite fantasy settings ever. Living up to an amazing series like the First Law trilogy and the three standalone novels is a tall order, however Abercrombie has managed to keep up the quality of his books and start the Age of Madness trilogy with a bang.

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!
