Furyborn by Claire Legrand | A Tale of Two Queens

Happiest book birthday to Furyborn by Claire Legrand! I got an advance reader copy in a Fairyloot box this past November and I started reading it very soon after I got it. So by now, almost half a year will have passed since I read it (which is crazy!) but my opinion stays the same: I absolutely love this book! I’ve been (im)patiently waiting for Furyborn’s release so I can finally fangirl about it without spoiling it! Ahhh, it’s about time I can share this review with you! Of course, it’s spoiler free (and very, very long…)

Geekerella by Ashley Poston | A Geeky Cinderella Story!

Geekerella by Ashley Poston comes out in US paperback edition today. It's wrapped in a beautiful new cover and has some fun bonus content! Here's my review!

The US paperback of Geekerella with a brand new cover comes out TODAY, and I got the chance to read an ARC that included some bonus content! As you might know, Geekerella is one of my all-time favourite books. I listened to the audiobook twice since I listened to it the first time back in October last year and now I’ve “read” it three times total. I will never get bored with this book. It’s wonderfully geeky, quite romantic and beyond cute. Anyway, before I gush too much before we’re even into the review, let’s just get on with it! Read more

Ace of Shades by Amanda Foody | Like an Urban Caraval in The Best Way

I have no words. Like, I’ve been staring at my screen for five minutes just regretting writing my review before writing an intro because now I’m almost ready to publish this except I’m speechless and what do I say?! I love Ace of Shades so incredibly much. It’s like my no. 1 favourite book at the moment and I’m obsessed with this city, the character and the entire vibe of this book. It’s been a really long time since I’ve felt so invested in a book. It’s also been a long time since I’ve put so much effort into a review. I just wanted to do this book justice, and I hope I managed to do just that! It’s a bit long, but I hope you’ll enjoy it anyway.

Restore Me by Tahereh Mafi | Book Club Discussion

A little while ago, I signed up to join Hebban’s Epic Reads (online) Book Club for Restore Me by Tahereh Mafi. The book wasn’t a “priority” for me at the time, but I simply couldn’t pass up the opportunity because I’d read the “original” Shatter Me trilogy in only three days a few years ago and I loved it so much! Imagine my surprise when I was chosen as a participant and got the book sent to me! I decided to give you guys a little summary of my part in the book club, spoiler-free, of course!

Siege & Storm by Leigh Bardugo | Another Case of “Why Didn’t I Read This Sooner?!”

The perk of getting a trilogy box set is that you can continue reading sequels right away! I recently read (and reviewed) Shadow & Bone by Leigh Bardugo, so obviously, it’s now time for Siege & Storm. I always really struggle writing reviews for sequels (especially when they’re second books in trilogies. Oh my goodness.) but I think I managed! Anyway, here are my thoughts on the book!

Shadow & Bone by Leigh Bardugo | I Finally Read a Grisha Book!

WOW-WEE! It has literally taken me for-e-ver to finally pick up a Leigh Bardugo book. But I finally did it! I gotta be honest with you, I was never really that interested in the Grishaverse. Strangely, though, I can’t really explain why! These books had never been on my TBR before and I don’t think I’d ever actually read the synopsis of Shadow & Bone before I decided to pick up the box set. I guess I just trusted everyone who was even the littlest bit positive about Leigh and the series? Anyway, here’s my review!

The Cruel Prince by Holly Black | An Interesting New Take on Faeries

If it’s a faerie book, I have to pick it up. I am obsessed and need them all, pretty much. When The Cruel Prince was released, it was everywhere. I couldn’t go on Twitter without seeing something on this book. I was never really interested (although it IS a faerie book! Shame on me!), but then the hype made me do it and when I went to Rotterdam in January, I decided to pick it up! But… Did I read the same book as everyone else?

The Rogue Queen by Emily R. King | Would’ve Been the Perfect End

The Rogue Queen is the third book in the Hundredth Queen series by Emily R. King. It’s a series I didn’t really like at first but grew to like over the course of the second book. When I requested the book on Netgalley, I had no clue whether or not I’d like it at all! I usually don’t request books if I feel about them this way, but I decided to give it a shot and I’m glad I did. I’m not super in love with the story, but it was a nice read anyway. As always, my review is completely spoiler free! Read more

International Bookworms: My Favourite International Bookish People

The International Bookworms meme was created by me at the beginning of this year to support and connect international bloggers. It’s a biweekly linkup meme with a different prompt each week, and I’m so excited about this week! It’s all about sharing the love of our favourite international bookish people and obviously, I’ve linked to some of my favourite book blogs! Read more

Reign of the Fallen by Sarah Glenn Marsh | Yay for Necromancers!

Remember when I did a Waiting on Wednesday post on Reign of the Fallen by Sarah Glenn Marsh? I was just so excited about this book! I mean, the main character is a necromancer and there’s #OwnVoices bisexual rep. How cool is that?! Way before I even got my Audible credit, I knew what I’d be spending it on. I listened to the audiobook and I loved it a whole lot. Anyway, let’s get on with the review, it feels way overdue already!
