Review: The Bone Shard Emperor by Andrea Stewart
It's my spot on the Compulsive Readers Blog Tour for The Bone Shard Emperor, the second instalment in the Drowning Empire series - and I am absolutely loving this set of novels.
Review: Girls of Fate and Fury by Natasha Ngan
When you're reading the conclusion to a series and you are worried for LITERALLY EVERY CHARACTER then you know you've been reading a good one.
Review: The Death of Vivek Oji by Akwaeke Emezi
This book was shockingly good. Emezi has written a story that is not only about the shocking, senseless death of an individual, but they have pulled together secrets, issues of being 'other' in a society and culture that does not welcome it, and the life that has led to this point.
Review: Velvet was the Night by Silvia Moreno-Garcia
Every time I pick up one of her books, it's a different genre, a different style. But the essence of what makes her writing great is the relationships that characters have with each other - their growth, their relationship and the imaginative setting.
Review: Skin of the Sea by Natasha Bowen
I was a little apprehensive about embarking on reading a story that felt very Little Mermaid in its opening pages. But Skin of the Sea was much more detailed, much more exciting and was packed with Nigerian and West African folklore that quickly made the story much less a retelling, and entirely a novel in its own right.
