Reading Wrap-Up: March 2019

March was such a busy month -- I feel like it completely flew by! I had so many life changes in March, including preparation for moving to a new job and studying (and passing!) by driving theory test. I did, however, still manage to get some reading done, although I didn’t read as many books as I had wanted.

Blog Tour: Muse of Nightmares by Laini Taylor

Welcome to my stop on the Muse of Nightmares blog tour! To celebrate the paperback release, I’m bringing you a review of this gorgeous fantasy novel. Judging by my overwhelming love of Strange the Dreamer, it’s no surprise that I absolutely adored the concluding book in Laini Taylor’s latest duology. Take a look at my thoughts below, and don’t forget to check out the other stops on the tour!

Book Review: The Priory of the Orange Tree by Samantha Shannon

I had been desperately waiting to get hold of a copy of The Priory of the Orange Tree, and it finally landed in my hands in February.

Book Review: The Familars by Stacey Halls

I love historical fiction, but it tends to get cast aside in favour of science fiction and fantasy for me. Enter The Familiars, a gorgeous book set during the 17th century witch trials in England, with a cover that I couldn’t resist. I won an early copy of this book back in July and am kicking myself for not reading it sooner! This debut novel investigates class, privilege, female friendships, and the danger of being a social outcast, all with a touch of the unknown.
