Caraval Trilogy Deluxe Editions! Fairyloot Unboxing!

Oh my word! It’s here! After months of waiting (no shade, we knew the wait was long!) it’s finally here! The Deluxe Caraval Trilogy set from Fairyloot! Isn’t it beautiful? So here’s a mini article with a sole purpose of just showing these editions off and me rambling. I also have one gripe/complaint, but hey…

A fun sci-fi experience – Chasing Solace Review

I’ll admit straight away 2 things: Opals are my favourite gemstone ever, so I was kinda already swayed when I found out that the MC of Chasing Solace was called Opal. And secondly, I’ve been really trying to get into sci-fi a bit more because I love it in film and TV (brought up on…

Criminal antics in Scotland and France – Perfect Kill Review

As some of you may be aware, I’m no stranger to Helen Fields’s work – or the ‘Perfect’ series. I’ve read all of the previous book in this series, and I’ve even reviewed Perfect Crime and Perfect Silence as well as having had the opportunity to host a guest post from Helen herself (and I…

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…

Bitesize Reviews – Vol 3

It’s Bitesize review time again! For those new here, I use bitesize reviews to review the books I don’t have time to dedicate an entire review to (or for those I’ve read that I just don’t want to give a whole review to). So here are the next block of four! Be sure to check…

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…

Bookstagram – The thing that NO ONE talks about

Bookstagram can be – and for the most part is – an absolutely wonderful place. It’s full of amazing people sharing a love of books and inspiring others with creativity, photography, themes, reviews and much more. But there’s a side of it that I’m willing to put money on affecting a good 80% of users…

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,…
