Book Review: Phoenix Extravagant by Yoon Ha Lee

Having read Lee's Ninefox Gambit, I knew that I should expect a few things from Phoenix Extravagant: an incredibly immersive and original world, great characters, and a compelling read. While I enjoyed Ninefox Gambit, his latest novel absolutely blows it out of the water for me.

Blog Tour: The Trouble with Peace by Joe Abercrombie

Welcome to my stop on the Trouble with Peace blog tour! As you all may be aware, Joe Abercrombie is one of my absolute favourite authors and a new book from him is always an event in my reading year. Given my absolute love of A Little Hatred, the first book in his new First Law series, I had sky-high expectations for its sequel -- and they were unsurprisingly met.

Book Review: The House in the Cerulean Sea by TJ Klune

I had been hearing nothing but rave reviews for The House in the Cerulean Sea when it came out this spring -- what better time for a wholesome book than during quarantine? I didn't get around to reading it until August, but I'm so glad I picked up this lovely book! A cosy read that pairs perfectly with a rainy day, a cup of tea, and a cat in your lap, The House in the Cerulean Sea is sure to warm you heart.

Book Review: The Descendant of the Crane by Joan He

I’ve been struggling with YA fantasy for the past year or so, however I wanted to give it another try while in quarantine. I dusted off my copy of The Descendant of the Crane -- one of my most highly anticipated 2019 releases that I never managed to read (oops), which is coming out in the UK in June. It turned out to be the perfect escapist read filled with gorgeous world-building, fun characters, and more twists and turns than I could have ever anticipated!

Blog Tour: Incendiary by Zoraida Cordova

Welcome to my stop on the Incendiary blog tour! Incendiary has been on my radar for ages because I loved the idea of a Spanish Inquisition-inspired fantasy novel. Despite my recent ups and downs with YA fantasy, I gave my first Zoraida Cordova book a try, and I ended up really liking it! While I think that a lot more could have gone into the world-building and the characters, it is such a fun and addicting read with a great ending.

Blog Tour: The Deck of Omens by Christine Lynn Herman

Welcome to my stop on the Deck of Omens blog tour! I absolutely devoured (heh heh) Herman’s debut novel The Devouring Gray last year and have been desperately waiting for the sequel. The Deck of Omens is an addicting and thrilling read that introduces strange new aspects to the world of Four Paths, all while giving a satisfying conclusion to the story and characters.
