A gorgeous contemporary novel set in Tasmania, To the Sea was the perfect holiday read for me. Told in multiple points of view over the days between Christmas and New Year’s Eve, it conveys a beautiful story spanning generations.
I devoured Windwitch. It was almost impossible to put down from the very first page!! I think this series is perfect for fans of YA fantasy and a must read for anyone who enjoyed Truthwitch.
Truthwitch is a quick and fun read that I loved. My excitement regarding Windwitch has been rejuvenated. I think this series will be enjoyed by those who like YA fantasy such as Throne of Glass and Poison Study.
Hi! I love the Australian Women Writers Challenge because it introduces me to new authors and encourages me to seek out books that would otherwise be outside my comfort zone. I’ve been a huge supporter of it and think it’s a wonderful initiative. I read 7 books by amazing Aussie…
I love this world, I love these characters, and I’m sad that it’s over. A fresh take on some old tropes, The Empty Throne duology is perfect for readers who are looking for something new in the genre.
This is the kind of urban fantasy I love – gritty, dark, a little gory, and based on amazing characters whom I couldn’t help but love. This Savage Song highlights the best of Schwab’s writing — awesome story-craft and kick-ass worldbuilding — and introduces us to a world I won’t…
The Pale Dreamer gives us a glimpse of Paige’s life before we met her in The Bone Season, taking us on an adventure through London after some poltergeists. It’s an excellent entry point for readers who are interested in The Bone Season series and want to give it a try….
I enjoyed Aerie a lot. It’s different enough from Magonia that it doesn’t suffer from second-book syndrome but keeps true to the things I loved about the first instalment. I’ll be back for more (if there is more!) and recommend it to those who enjoyed Magonia or like Neil Gaiman’s works.
I’ve had a wonderful, wonderful time with Cinder, Scarlet, Cress and Winter, and I’m sad to let them go … but I do have the novellas in Stars Above to look forward to! The idea of blending science fiction, fairy tales, and Sailor Moon may sound odd (I was sceptical at first), but I urge readers to give the series a chance. I don’t think you’ll regret it.
The first book in The Nevernight Chronicle, Nevernight is the kind of book you line up for. It’s a superbly crafted story that had me hooked from the very first chapter.
