The Crane Wife | Can’t Wait Wednesday #20

Can’t-Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted at Wishful Endings, created to discuss books that book bloggers haven’t read yet and they’re usually books yet to be released. I ran across it when looking for new content ideas for The Book Blog Life, and it looked like so much fun. The Crane Wife is a book that I had sat on my shelf for so long, I am a huge fan of Patrick Ness and I love the worlds and characters he […]

YA Fantasy Recommendation #1 : Six of Crows

I thought that seeing as it’s been over two months since I gave you a recommendation that it was time for another one. This time we’re jumping into one of if not my favourite genre,  YA Fantasy. I think there is something great about escaping completely from the world around us and into a completely fictional existence. My YA fantasy recommendation is also one of my favourite fantasy books of all time and if you also like the genre you […]

The Book Knights | 3 star review

The Book Knights really intrigued me both with the description and the cover. I loved the idea of having a gender-swapped Arthurian tale, especially with it being set in a dystopian world where reading is banned. I enjoy reading about what would happen if the world stopped reading one day, and the results are usually not pleasant. So when I read about the world in which this story is set, I had high expectations for the book and characters. I […]

The Gilded King | 5 star review

I cannot express how well The Gilded King surprised me, I think once I started reading that I was expecting something similar to Twilight, you know sparkly vampires who aren’t actually anything to do with what vampires should be. HOWEVER and this is a huge however what I got instead was a rich and diverse mythology that not incorporates vampires but also zombies, in a wonderfully new and original way. I think the way that everything is well written and […]

Three Dark Crowns | 5 star review

I went into this book with very high expectations, but I had heard mixed things, so I was hoping and expecting the best but knew there was a big possibility that I was going to be disappointed. I definitely think the premise of Three Dark Crowns is what intrigued me into buying and investing time in the book, and I’m so glad I did, I really enjoyed reading this from start to finish. I loved the dynamics of the different […]

Tower of Dawn | 4 star review

This book review of Tower of Dawn may contain spoilers for the series, and you should probably avoid this review if you haven’t read the other books! I have written a review for Empire of Storms if you’re interested! I was dubious going into this book, and I’m pretty sure this is the only Sarah J Maas books that I have given less than 5 stars for. The only reason is that I’m not a huge Chaol  fan, he annoys […]

The Awakening & The Reckoning | 2 star review

This review is the second in a series go check out my review of The Summoning here – this review may have spoilers for the first in the series! I thought I would combine these two reviews seeing as I think The Awakening and The Reckoning were really similar in my thoughts. Plus I really don’t want to spend any more time on these books. I’m so glad that I read these back to back because I think if I […]

The Summoning | 3 star review

The Summoning is the first book in a series that has been sat on my shelves for a very long time. I am currently trying to keep my book buying to a minimum and reading all the books that I have on my shelves at the moment. I have a load of books by Kelly Armstrong and some of them I really like and then others I’m not too keen on. If you couldn’t tell I wasn’t particularly keen on The […]

The Warrior Heir | 3 star review

The Warrior Heir has been on my wishlist for forever and I never seemed to hit the buy button for whatever reason. Well, there it was, sat on a table at YALC and for a decent price so who could resist? I couldn’t. It ended up in my suitcase and bam, here we are. I think if I did use half star measures on my blog this would be nearer a 2.5 which really disappoints me. I have heard this […]
