One of the Most Important Books of 2020 – Parachutes Review

I have a lot of complex feelings about this book, and that’s because a lot of complex emotions and situations are present. This book references the #MeToo movement and whilst I wasn’t initially keen on that, because some books I’ve read have been – quite frankly, dangerous and hateful and portray all men as bastards…

Once bitten, never shy! – Crave Review

Phew! Oh boy imma need a hot minute to calm down after reading this one. I legit wish I was wearing a heart rate monitor whilst reading Crave! Damn it was fun and sexy! Before I get started, I was lucky enough to receive Crave as part of a promotional box from Entangled Teen –…

An Underwater Adventure! – The Vanishing Deep Review

Remember Four Dead Queens by Astrid Scholte? Well, I gave that 5 stars. And it’s exactly the same situation for Scholte’s latest release The Vanishing Deep. But where Four Dead Queens was FAR from perfect, but got 5 stars for the enjoyability factor, The Vanishing Deep earned 5 stars the good old fashioned way. It…

I’m In Love – A Curse So Dark And Lonely Review

Ok so ya’ll know that, based off of a lot of my past reads, I seem to like the idea of retellings more than the actual retelling itself more often than not. Honestly, so far I’ve pretty much only enjoyed the Lunar Chronicles retellings by Marissa Meyer. Well Queen, move over because the crown belongs…

Cover Redesigns – The Cruel Prince

Cover redesign, or fan covers, has been something I’ve been doing for a short while now, and I’ve been having a lot of fun with it! I’ve done some of my favourite books, and some not so favourites. I tend to pick them by asking for suggestions from my Instagram followers. Sometimes that bites me…

A YA Fantasy Classic Retelling – Belle Revolte Review

So on Goodreads I gave Belle Revolte 3 stars, but my actual rating is 3.25/5. That may not seem like an important distinction, but it is to me. Belle Revolte is one of those books where the cover drew me in immediately. I mean, just look at it! It’s stunning, it’s like dripping donut glaze…

The Sound of Five Stars – The Sound of Stars Review

I feel so lucky and grateful to have been sent an early copy of The Sound of Stars. I had seen it in a Ink Yard Press’s stories and I had re-storied it to mine, tagging the author and Ink Yard Press stating how excited I was for this title. And Alechia Dow – the…

Bitesize Reviews – Vol. 2

It’s Bitesize time again! As you may have noticed, I’ve started doing bitesize reviews (check out Volume 1 here!) and you’ll be able to find these in the top menu of the site, under reviews! But let’s get on with Volume 2! Just like Volume 1, these 4 books were featured in my January reading…

Some dreams chase you back… – Reverie review

Reverie by Ryan La Sala is a very unusual book that is described as Inception meets The Magicians, but I don’t think that does it justice. That’s because Reverie is many things, but above all is highly imaginative, unapologetic in its queerness, magical and 100% original. Reverie is a YA fantasy that I promise you,…
