    Review: Assassin’s Heart by Sarah Ahiers

    Publication Date: 2nd February 2016 Genre: Fantasy I received this lovely book for my birthday and couldn’t be happier! Although my birthday was in March, I only just got out of the book slump in late April with a big thanks to this novel!! I really enjoyed this book and I really need to buy the other two books as soon as possible. I am in love with this world (and all the characters included in it – ESPECIALLY LES) This book was the perfect blend of fantasy and I felt really connected with the characters, it felt like I was actually joining them throughout their adventure! But let’s just…

    ARC Review!: The Continent by Keira Drake

    Publication Date: 27 March 2018 Genre: Fantasy/Sci-fi I received this novel as an ARC review copy and all opinions are my own, as like all my other reviews! Let’s just get straight into it. (I originally published this review before the publication date but somehow it didn’t go through? I then went on a hiatus and didn’t even check this until recently so here you go!) I thoroughly enjoyed this novel! It held the perfect amount of creativity and enthusiasm making my experience reading it more enjoyable. The characters were crafted carefully, Vaela (the main character) her transformation from her old pretentious self into the minimalist she is, was magnificent.…

    Review: A Court of Wings and Ruin

    FINALLY A SARAH J MAAS POST after my 7 months of blog construction which has actually been total procrastination. A Court of Wings and Ruin is absolutely fantastic, it brings me to my knees with its glory. It’s just so full of magic and diversity and is everything I love in a book. (Although ACOMAF is still my love but you know) I preordered this book before it came out this year and as soon as I got it, it was finished in a matter of days, like it was insane how much I read with school and work going on (let’s just say I was pretty darn proud of…

    Review: City of Bones by Cassandra Clare

    Hey guys! Today I will be doing a review of City of Bones, the first book in The Immortal Instruments series by Cassandra Clare. [Goodreads: When fifteen-year-old Clary Fray heads out to the Pandemonium Club in New York City, she hardly expects to witness a murder― much less a murder committed by three teenagers covered with strange tattoos and brandishing bizarre weapons. Then the body disappears into thin air. It’s hard to call the police when the murderers are invisible to everyone else and when there is nothing―not even a smear of blood―to show that a boy has died. Or was he a boy?…] My mum gave me most of the…
