More Than We Can Tell by Brigid Kemmerer

More Than We Can Tell by Brigid Kemmerer

Reviews 0 ★★★★★

More Than We Tell is set in the same universe as Letters to the Lost and follows Rev, one of the secondary characters from that novel. While it's not strictly necessary for a reader to read Letters before diving into More Than We Tell, this novel does contain spoilers for the other. Rev was one of my very favourite characters in Letters so I was excited to learn he had his own book. Predictably, I took the very next opportunity to visit a bookstore. One of the first things I noticed was that the way Declan sees Rev is very...

Letters to the Lost by Brigid Kemmerer

Reviews 0 ★★★★★

My favourite kind of book is one where I don’t have to like the characters to find them compelling. Or, to put it another way, I admire authors who write protagonists I dislike but still want to read about, even at 2 in the morning. Such is Letters to the…

Isadora by Charlotte McConaghy

Isadora by Charlotte McConaghy

Reviews 0 ★★★★★

Isadora is everything I wanted for the last instalment of The Chronicles of Kaya. It was brilliantly written and emotional, and I raced through it in two sittings. Falco and Isadora are probably my favourite pair from this series.

Truthwitch by Susan Dennard

Truthwitch by Susan Dennard

Reviews 1 ★★★★½

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.

This Savage Song by Victoria Schwab

This Savage Song by Victoria Schwab

Reviews 0 ★★★★★

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…

Aerie by Maria Dahvana Headley

Aerie by Maria Dahvana Headley

Reviews 0 ★★★★

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.

Winter by Marissa Meyer

Winter by Marissa Meyer

Reviews 3 ★★★★★

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.
