Review – Empress of All Season by Emiko Jean

I saw this book making its rounds in the bookverseĀ and I thought it sounded very interesting but I wasn'tĀ 100% sold. However, Ā I'm on an Asian-inspiredĀ fantasy/sci-fi binge so I picked it up. I will never regret that decision. This ARC was provided to me by NetGalley and Orion Publishing in return for an honest review. Thank… Continue reading Review – Empress of All Season by Emiko Jean

Review – Theā€‹ Three-body Problem by Cixin Liu

This translated Chinese award-winning sci-fiĀ came to my attention during my Diverse Own VoicesĀ Fantasy and Sci-fi and actually made it onto my list! I was interested in how Chinese worldview, culture and traditions would come through the sci-fi elements of the story. This is essentially the reasons I'm interested in an own voice diverse fantasy and… Continue reading Review – Theā€‹ Three-body Problem by Cixin Liu

Review – The Caged Queen by Kristin Ciccarelli (Iskara #2)

I actually requested this arc before I read book 1... I know, my NetGalley addiction has gotten worse (I hope NaNoWriMo will cure it). And if you have read my review of book 1 (if not here you go), you may wonder deeply why I picked up the second one in the series. The short… Continue reading Review – The Caged Queen by Kristin Ciccarelli (Iskara #2)

Review – Fight Like A Girl by Clementine Ford

I have never read a feminist manifesto but I always wanted too. So when I saw this on NetGalley I thought, yeah! Feminism is a subject close to my heart. I have always considered myself as a feminist being brought up in a well balanced equal Scandinavian society. Boy, was I wrong! As this book… Continue reading Review – Fight Like A Girl by Clementine Ford

Review – The Last Namsara by Kristin Ciccarelli

I originally looked at getting this when it first came out but I didn't. Then I started hearing a lot of good stuff about it. And still didn't pick it up! Now a year later, just before book 2 comes out, I've finally managed to pick it up. Let's see what I thought of it.… Continue reading Review – The Last Namsara by Kristin Ciccarelli

Review – Strange the Dreamer by Laini Taylor

I was reluctant to read this due to its high score on GoodReads and so many of my favourite booktubers loving it so much. It wasn't because of the hype though. Oh no! I was totally afraid I wouldn't like it as much as them and feel like I missed out on something great. Not… Continue reading Review – Strange the Dreamer by Laini Taylor
