Magonia by Maria Dahvana Headley

Magonia by Maria Dahvana Headley

Reviews 4 ★★★★★

Magonia is one of the most beautiful books I've had the pleasure of reading in a long time. The prose, the characters, the world-building, everything about it is simply gorgeous.

Ava has drowned in air her whole life. Born with a mysterious lung disease that makes it hard for her to breathe, she's a walking, talking miracle, a professional patient with a history of hospitals. Ava refuses to be seen as weak, seen as an invalid, so she's witty, caustically sarcastic, full of spark, and alive in a way most people aren't. Maybe it's because she's living on borrowed time,...

The Heir by Kiera Cass

The Heir by Kiera Cass

Reviews 0 ★★★★

I liked The Heir, I think it takes the idea of The Selection and does something new and different with it. I liked getting to know Eadlyn and her siblings, and seeing all my old(er) favourites from the original series.

It was delightful to get back to Yelena and Valek after so long, and Shadow Study proves that the magic of some worlds and their characters only strengthens with time. This book is a wonderful beginning to a kick-ass new series that introduces us to a new threat, some new…

Every Move by Ellie Marney

Every Move by Ellie Marney

Reviews 1 ★★★★

The last instalment of Ellie Marney’s Every series has left me conflicted and sad. Although it’s hard to say good-bye to Mycroft and Watts, it’s probably for the best because I didn’t really like the way this book turned out.

Half Wild by Sally Green

Half Wild by Sally Green

Reviews 1 ★★★★

Half Wild is the follow-up to Half Bad. This series follows Nathan Byrn, a half-White and half-Black witch in a world where the two hate each other and don’t usually mix. The fact that Nathan’s father is the most notorious and dangerous Black witch in existence doesn’t help the matter.

Firefight by Brandon Sanderson

Firefight by Brandon Sanderson

Reviews 1 ★★★★★

Firefight is a wonderful sequel to the heart-stopping Steelheart, delivering all the action, adventure, and fun that readers will expect. It’s an explosive adventure that captured my imagination, and has left me sad that I have to wait so long for the next instalment, Calamity.

Another enchanting and dark fairytale by Sarah Pinborough, Beauty is set before Charm and Poison and allows us to understand those stories a lot better. It introduces us to the prince, the huntsman, a very curious girl, and a deeply disturbing castle.

Charm by Sarah Pinborough

Charm by Sarah Pinborough

Reviews 0 ★★★★½

Brilliantly reimagined and haunting, Charm is a dark and sexy retelling of the Cinderella fairytale with an incredible twist. Charm is a brilliant retelling of Cinderella that takes the well known tale to a whole new level. I am thoroughly enjoying this series and can’t wait to see where the next instalment, Beauty, takes us.
