ARC Review: The Underground Railroad

The Underground Railroad has been on my radar since its publication in 2016.  It received pretty much all of the good press a book could get – it was one of the titles in Oprah’s book club, won the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction, the National Book Award, and was named as one of the books Barack Obama read while in office.  It’s a departure from a lot of the books I’ve been reading these days, but I knew I had to pick it up.

Review: Everything, Everything

This review will contain spoilers.  If you haven't read Everything, Everything, you should stay away.  Seriously. I went into this book knowing pretty much nothing about it.  I knew that it had a nice cover and upcoming film.  I also had a basic idea of the plot.

ARC Review: Lost Boy

While Peter Pan may have originated as a fairly modern play, it has fairy tale status in the public consciousness.  A boy who never grows up, an island filled with childlike wonder, and a grand adventure, the story of Peter Pan has been told by everyone from Disney to London's west end theaters – it is a tale that many children grow up loving.  

Review: Spellbook of the Lost and Found

I took a chance on Moira Fowley-Doyle's Spellbook of the Lost and Found after falling in love with its gorgeous cover on Twitter.  I haven't read The Accident Season, her debut novel, so I didn't really know what to expect in terms of style.

ARC Review: Blackwing

Blackwing is a book I heard about on Twitter, a trend I’m noticing more and more for myself.  I was curious about it, but not hugely compelled to seek it out.  I requested a copy when I saw it go up on NetGalley, and I’m so glad I did. Blackwing was a huge surprise for me, and Ed McDonald has quickly became a new favorite author.

ARC Review: Raven Stratagem

I recently read and reviewed Ninefox Gambit, the first in the Machineries of Empire trilogy. It had been getting great press, was nominated for some of the top honours in science fiction, and has a stunning cover. I picked it up despite it not being my usual taste in sci-fi

ARC Review: The Never King

The Never King is the newest novel from Mark Charan Newton, who is writing under the pseudonym James Abbott.  I hadn't read any of Newton's books before diving into this one, but was intrigued nonetheless.

Review: False Hearts

Conjoined twins!  Cults!  Dystopian San Francisco! Murder!  I took one look and realised that this would be a unique read and just ticks so many boxes for me.  I was really impressed by this book -- I ended up really enjoying it and am officially a Laura Lam fan.
