Tithe by Holly Black

Tithe by Holly Black

Reviews 0 ★★★

Having loved The Darkest Part of the Forest, I was expecting something surreal and creepy from Tithe. While it delivered on those fronts, it also felt confused and half-hearted.

Tithe took a long time to begin. The first part of the novel felt disjointed and slow. It may have been a reflection of just how not-normal Kaye was, but it didn't feel well executed and detracted from my enjoyment. Plus, there's a dream-like quality in the novel that holds the reader at bay from the action (maybe because Kaye feels so removed from the real world). The pacing is choppy,...

Marked by Sue Tingey

Marked by Sue Tingey

Reviews 1 ★★

I feel oddly duped by Marked. I was expecting a paranormal-urban fantasy with some detective/crime vibes, and what I got was a paranormal romance that reminded me of the Merry Gentry books by Laurell K. Hamilton.

Audiobook Review: Dreams of Gods and Monsters by Laini Taylor

Audiobook Review: Dreams of Gods and Monsters by Laini Taylor

Reviews 1 ★★★★★

“This book will break your feelings. Shatter them, then stomp on the resulting little pieces. And you’ll love every moment of it.” There were times where I listened with tears in my eyes. Everything about this book is beautiful, exquisite, and agonising, and the audiobook version is even more so because Khristine Hvam is such a skilled narrator.

Audiobook Review: Days of Blood and Starlight by Laini Taylor

Reviews 3 ★★★★★

Again, I’ve been absolutely blown away by the experience. Khristine Hvam narrates this complex and beautiful take superbly. I loved the voices she gave the characters. Especially Zuzana. She captures the hurt and loss felt by both Karou and Akiva brilliantly. I feel like the really gets the story, the characters, and the world.

Fearless, the last instalment in the Avena series, concludes Ebony and Nathaneal’s story admirably, and I enjoyed every moment of it immensely. I’ve loved this series since I read Hidden, and am sad to let these characters and their world go.

Burn by Paula Weston

Burn by Paula Weston

Reviews 1 ★★★★★

What a glorious way to end off one of the best angel-themed paranormal series I’ve ever read! Burn is everything I expected from the final instalment of The Rephaim, a brilliantly plotted novel where action, romance, and intrigue come together to create magic.

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.
