I love finding a series that I can totally trust when it comes to a fast-paced storyline, engaging characters and a little sprinkling of magic. For me, the Invisible Library series and this series - Regency Faerie Tales - fall into that perfectly.
Review: All of Our Demise by Amanda Foody and Christine Lynn Herman
I read All of Us Villains last year and there is and was just something about this series that has genuinely edged into my dreams over the past year. It's dark, it's nasty, and underneath it all, it's human too.
Review: The Ten Thousand Stitches by Olivia Atwater
Well, I am loving this series. It is the perfect combination of light, fun romance with a sprinkling of fantasy and a little nod towards Regency society.
Blog Tour: The Women Could Fly by Megan Giddings
It's my spot on the Random Things blog tour for The Women Could Fly - it's a short but slippery novel and I found myself wavering back and forth between different ratings over each and every page I read.
Review: Half a Soul by Olivia Atwater
Ahh this was everything I was looking for in a Regency romance (and with added fae/supernatural elements too). Fast, fun and a little-swoon-worthy.
Review: The Cat Who Saved Books by Sosuke Natsukawa
This was a bit of a mixed bag for me - I was expecting more cat and more books, rather than a discussion of high literature, how to read the right way and emphasising what a shut-in the main character is. Part of that I know fits with the style and genre of Japanese literature, but this just didn't rate highly for me overall.
Book Review: Gallant by V E Schwab
I will read literally anything by V E Schwab. A short story, a chonky novel, a shopping list. Her wonderful fascination with darkness, death and evil, as well as her engrossing writing style make it so easy to read absolutely anything she creates.
Blog Tour and Review: The Knave of Secrets by Alex Livingston
It's my spot on The Write Reads blog tour for Knave of Secrets - a story of cardsharps, gamblers, political machinations and layers and layers of intrigue and magic. It makes for an impressive, although dense, story.
Review: The Carnival of Ash by Tom Beckerlegge
It's time for my stop on the Ultimate Blog Tour with The Write Reads for the Carnival of Ash; a city where not only words have power, but literature does too.
Review: The Girl Who Fell Beneath The Sea by Axie Oh
This was a stunning, fast-paced and imaginative story that had all the warmth and worry of Spirited Away and Studio Ghibli in a spirit Realm beneath the sea.
