Book Review: The Ten Thousand Doors of January by Alix E. Harrow

I rarely have difficulty reviewing book, regardless of how much I love or dislike it. However, The Ten Thousand Doors of January has me stumped and speechless! I’m not sure that I’ll be able to capture how fantastic this debut novel is, but I’ll do my best.


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.

Book Review: The Starlight Watchmaker by Lauren James

I absolutely love Lauren James’s The Loneliest Girl in the Universe, so I was naturally thrilled to pick up a copy of her latest book, The Starlight Watchmaker. A novella from Barrington Stoke, a publisher that focuses on readable books for dyslexic and reluctant young readers, I couldn’t wait to get my paws on this little book. I did enjoy it, but I found that I couldn’t quite turn off my detail-obsessed adult sci-fi brain!
