Review – The Raven Boys #1 – LALAthon Wrap up #2

I picked this book up during LALAthon as one of Lala's favourite fantasy series. I have had my eyes on this series for a while and already managed to get all four books in the series expecting to like it 😬 I've finally managed to get to the first one in the series and it… Continue reading Review – The Raven Boys #1 – LALAthon Wrap up #2

Review – Love Beyond Body Space and Time – LALAthon Wrapup #1

I first heard about this book when Book And Lala talk about it, and it sounded amazing. So I bought it without knowing if it was good or not. It turned out to be one of Lala's favourite books and I picked it for LALAthon TBR. This is the second book I finished for LALAthon,… Continue reading Review – Love Beyond Body Space and Time – LALAthon Wrapup #1

Review – Let Her Fly by Ziauddin Yousafzai

I saw this randomly on NetGalley and was drawn to the cover. I thought I recogniced one of the people in front. Turns out she was Malala and the book was by her father. I totally requested it straigth away. This ARC was provided to me by NetGalley and Ebury Publishing (Penguin Random House UK)… Continue reading Review – Let Her Fly by Ziauddin Yousafzai

Review – Girls of Paper and Fire by Natasha Ngan

I've had my eyes on this book since April when I came across it during research for my Diverse Own Voices fantasy and sci-fi post. The book didn't make the post as it wasn't out yet. But it definitely made it on to my TBR and I got really excited for it to come out.… Continue reading Review – Girls of Paper and Fire by Natasha Ngan

Review – Empress of All Season by Emiko Jean

I saw this book making its rounds in the bookverse and I thought it sounded very interesting but I wasn't 100% sold. However,  I'm on an Asian-inspired 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 – The​ Three-body Problem by Cixin Liu

This translated Chinese award-winning sci-fi came to my attention during my Diverse Own Voices 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 – The​ Three-body Problem by Cixin Liu

Review – What If It’s Us by Becky Albertalli & Adam Silvera

I have seen this book make its way around booktube for a little while now and it caught my attention. Firstly, that US hardback cover hooked me. It was mainly the colours, but also the way those two boys are looking at each other. Secondly, gay romance 😍 Thirdly, I always wanted to try books by… Continue reading Review – What If It’s Us by Becky Albertalli & Adam Silvera

Review – The Lanterns Ember by Colleen Houck

I first came across Colleen Houck's writing when I picked up Tiger's Curse back in 2015. The series got me completely hooked and I loved everything about it. It was my first experience with non-European mythology in fantasy, and it really got me interested. I did more research after that cause I had the thought… Continue reading Review – The Lanterns Ember by Colleen Houck

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 – One Day in December by Josie Silver

Yes, I just read a romance novel... Requesting this for NetGalley I was in a proper mood for a cute fluffy but "my age" romance novel without too much sex. The synopsis of this seemed to cover those areas so I went off a limb (I never really request romance novel at all) and requested… Continue reading Review – One Day in December by Josie Silver
