It has been hard to escape the hype for Truly Devious, a book that has taken the YA book world by storm, and I was totally taken in by it. I try to not let hype dictate my reading choices -- I so often end up disappointed -- but I was just so curious about this book. I had never read YA crime before, knew that it was the first in a trilogy, and knew that the author is a true crime fan -- that was all. I had one false start with this book because I couldn't get past the main character, however I ended up giving it a try on audiobook and absolutely devoured it.
I had taken a long, unintentional break from grimdark, one of my favourite genres, but started to slowly return to it in the second half of 2019. Enter Priest of Bones, a book that I had heard a lot about but hadn’t actually read. I bought it awhile back because the author is lovely on Twitter -- one of the main reasons I buy books, honestly -- and it had been sitting on my shelf for ages. Now that I've read it, I'm officially adding it to list of ‘why didn’t I read this sooner?’ books -- I absolutely loved it!
Happy Friday! I can’t believe that we’re nearly at the end of October. Halloween is coming up, I’ve got bookish plans for the weekend, and I’ve been reading up a storm! This week, I’ve managed to read the same number of books as I did in the month of September. Crazy, huh? Sci-fi and fantasy haven’t been on the agenda much, but I’ve been tearing through some great books anyway.
Hello friends, happy Friday! I, for one, cannot believe we are halfway through the spookiest month of the year. I've read a ton of books this week (I don't know what magical thing happened this week but I'm definitely pleased), and today is the start of the Off the Grid readathon so I should get even more reading done this weekend!
I find often thrillers really hit or miss for me -- sometimes they’re the most amazing reading experience or they completely fall flat. I hadn’t ever picked up a Ruth Ware book before, so I didn’t have many expectations going in despite hearing great things about her writing. However, I am so pleased to say that I ended up loving The Death of Mrs Westaway and read it in nearly one sitting.
Guess what time it is, y'all? It's time for the Off the Grid readathon! Shanah from Bionic Bookworm came up with this fantastic quarterly readathon in 2018, and the time has come for our fifth round! I love this readathon so much because it's so low-key yet effective. If you're anything like me, you always complain about … Continue reading The Off the Grid Readathon Awakens
Welcome to my stop on the Angel Mage blog tour! Although I’m a latecomer to Garth Nix’s fantasy books, having only just read Sabriel earlier this year, I was super excited to read his latest book. Angel Mage is his first adult fantasy book, and it’s a proper chunky tome too!
