Weekly Wrap-Up: 07 December 2018

The year is almost over -- can you believe it? It feels like it should still be September, maybe October. Where has the time gone? At least I get to be super Christmassy without judgement.

Book Review: Empress of All Seasons by Emiko Jean

I was so excited to hear that Empress of All Seasons was being published in the UK -- an all-girl contest to win the hand of the emperor’s son set in a Japanese-inspired world? Sign me up. I tumbled into the story right away and really enjoyed it -- it features strong feminist themes, trope inversion, and some incredibly badass women.

Blog Tour: Skyward by Brandon Sanderson

Brandon Sanderson is an author I trust completely. I will buy every single one of his books because I know I will like them. When I heard that he was writing his very first science fiction novel, I was so incredibly excited. My expectations for this novel were sky high (heh) and I have to say that Spensa and the gang absolutely smashed those expectations.

Book Review: The Lady’s Guide to Petticoats and Piracy by Mackenzi Lee

The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue was a smash hit last year, and the sequel has been getting so much attention and hype. I really enjoyed the first book, although the fantasy elements threw me off a bit. Rather than following our beloved Monty and Percy, The Lady's Guide to Petticoats and Piracy follows Monty's younger sister Felicity.  Felicity was my favourite character in the first book and I was so thrilled to hear she was getting her own book. Lady's Guide was so hyped for me and I have to say that it more than lived up to my expectations.
