I was captivated by the cover of Rogerson’s debut, An Enchantment of Ravens, but was ultimately lukewarm on the book itself. Despite this, I perked up when I heard about the release of Sorcery of Thorns. Not only does Sorcery have a great cover as well, it sounded like my exact cup of tea where Enchantment did not -- who doesn’t love sword-weilding librarians, sentient grimoires, and sassy magicians? I’m so pleased to say that I really, really enjoyed Sorcery of Thorns and am so happy I gave her writing another chance.
I absolutely loved Spellbook of the Lost and Found when I read it back in 2017. Ever since then, I’ve been a big fan of Doyle’s fantastic, dream-like writing. All the Bad Apples was a hugely anticipated book for me, and I’m so pleased to say that I loved it even more than I could have hoped.
I would like to file a complaint. How is it already August? It's completely baffling to me and I'd love to know when I time traveled because this is ridiculous. The month of July was kind of crazy, as I feel like it always is. What is it about summer months and me going to tons of events and doing fun stuff? I swear I usually sit at home and read books -- I'm not a particularly social person. Regardless, I had a ton of fun this month -- especially at YALC!

Regardless of how much I manage to read in a given week, month, or year, I always seem to be behind the times in some way. There are so many authors and series that I feel like I’m missing out on, and R. J. Barker's Wounded Kingdom was one of them. Despite having heard so many great things about his books, particularly from my lovely friend Bethan at The Fantasy Hive, I had never picked up any of them up until now. I decided to fix this and I’m so happy I did! Age of Assassins is firmly sat on my ‘why didn’t I read this sooner?’ shelf alongside books like City of Stairs and Jade City.
Happy Friday! It feels like ages since I've done a weekly wrap-up post. I've been super busy with work and with other projects like our podcast and my YouTube channel! I have, however, been reading a lot and am planning to get much more done this weekend!
