The Mime Order Book Review

This is a book review of a second book in a series read my review of The Bone Season first! Another reread and it didn’t disappoint. The Mime Order remains one of my favourite books. The characters are thrown into a world of politics and under hand dealings, with corruption never really seen before. Which shouldn’t really be a surprise seeing as the syndicate is made up of thieves and all sorts. But this book does it oh so well, […]

April 2017 TBR

Another month has passed us by and it’s time for my April 2017 TBR. Something I’ve been kind off dreading – I’m not reading or writing so much these days and thinking about all the books on my shelf is a little daunting. In fact it’s almost suffocating. This month isn’t going to be ambitious. It’s going to be safe. Because I need safe. I need to come out of this month feeling like I succeeded at reading. The Mime […]

King’s Cage This was an awesome addition to a great series. The […]

The Bone Season Book Review

The Bone Season was a reread and I adored this book just as much the second time around. There is something about this book that draws me in and I can’t quite put my finger on it. I always get drawn into the story and lose track of time when I begin reading these books. I love the world and the different voyant systems that Samantha Shannon has built into the story. Everything seems seamless and perfectly well written, something […]

King’s Cage Book Review

King’s Cage is the third book in a series. Read reviews for Red Queen and Glass Sword first. King’s Cage blew me away. The depth in which the characters are explored is astounding, you learn so much that was missing, it gives the story so far perspective and answers SO many questions. I have to say the relationship between Mare and Maven was perfect – there was no justification for his behaviour and I loved that Mare never wavered throughout. […]

Historical Fiction Recommendation #1 : The Bronze Horseman

I adore historical fiction but it’s such a vast genre that it can be a bit of a minefield to try and navigate through and I struggled to find my groove – working out what you like is a huge part of this process. I love WWII and Russian history so books which contain something like that was more likely to be a win for me. So onto my first historical fiction recommendation and surprise surprise, it’s based in WWII. […]

February 2017 Wrap Up

Welcome to my February 2017 Wrap Up. February has been the month that I went off the rails in terms of my reading. I thought I had a well-rounded plan as to what I wanted to read but the reading gods decided they had other things in mind for me. I managed to read all the books apart from the ones I really needed to – the Terry Pratchett. Well on with the books that I actually did read. A […]

Glass Sword Book Review

This is a review of the second book in a series – read the first review here. Glass Sword is even better than the first and that’s saying something. Mare really comes into her own in this book and becomes less reliant on those around her. She made for a better character which meant the entire book was more interesting and well rounded. I definitely thought the storyline for this book was more exciting and more action filled than the […]

Red Queen Book Review

Red Queen is a startlingly beginning to a brand new series by Victoria Aveyard. This was a reread for me and I loved this book as much as I did the first time. It is the perfect dystopian novel in the sense that it plays into all the tropes, the young girl who rises from oppression and fights for those she’s left behind. But somehow this is done with a unique plot line that you never see coming. It takes […]
