Stephen Donaldson is one of the kings of 80’s fantasy, however I had never read any of his books before. When I was presented with an opportunity to read his newest book, The Seventh Decimate, I jumped at the chance.
Happy Friday! I can’t believe that we’re already more than halfway through November. This year has absolutely flown by and I’m not sure where the time has gone! Fortunately, this also means that Christmas is inching ever closer. It’s nearly time to dust off your ugly Christmas jumpers and make a fool of yourself at your work’s holiday party.

Daughter of the Burning City is the much-hyped debut novel from Amanda Foody. I was approved to read this book a few months back but was holding off for some reason. Good reviews kept pouring in and when I saw early copies on sale at YALC, I had to have a physical copy. I'm so pleased to say that I was surprised by Daughter of the Burning City in the best way possible!
Happy Friday, everyone! I’m not sure how it’s August already – the months seem to be absolutely flying by! As you may have seen, I’m working on ARC August, a month-long challenge that will (hopefully) get me reading my digital and physical ARC’s and help me boost my NetGalley rating. Let’s see how the first week has been for reading.
Happy Friday, you guys! I’m currently living it up at YALC, but I didn’t want to miss my favorite post of the week. I've been trying to get a ton of reading in before attending this convention, however life gets in the way (as usual). I dind't read as much as I would have liked, but here is a round-up of all the reading I did this week. Apologies if this post is weirdly formatted or if I don't reply as fast as usual! I imagine I'm probably going to be absolutely exhausted after every day!
TBR Thursday is one of my favorite weekly posts from Bionic Book Worm’s lovely blog. If you aren’t following her yet, well, you really should be. Not only does she do great reviews and bookish posts, she’s an all-around lovely person. All book summaries are courtesy of Goodreads.
I initially avoided Daughter of Smoke and Bone because, well, I really hated the US cover. Shallow? Absolutely. However I recently read Taylor’s newest novel, Strange the Dreamer, and was swept away by her marvellous writing skills. I decided to backtrack and dive into her best known series.

I'm posting this a little later in the day than I usually like -- it has been a busy day! Scottish Fiancé ran his first race, so my big sister and I made signs to taunt/support him (see photo below). It has been a really hot day here in London, so there has been a … Continue reading Instagram Sundays
