Review: Crier’s War by Nina Varela ☁️💙

2020-debuts4.pngHi everyone!

The moment I finished reading the last page of Crier’s War by Nina Varela, I was left speechless. It was about midnight, and it took me a while to process what an incredible novel I had just read, to the point that I stared at my wall for a while. Crier’s War is a fantasy novel full of emotion, political intrigue and wonderful prose; it felt as if I was standing in a field of beautiful flowers, but all around was chaos unfolding. I know it’s probably a strange comparaison, but it is the closest to what it felt reading this truly stunning novel. Read More »

tbv tour bannerThis is a spoiler-free review.

Hi everyone!

I recently came to a realization when it comes to my favourite tropes: the found family trope will always come first. For once, I am actually able to choose my number one favourite. So, as you can imagine, when I came across The Black Veins by Ashia Monet on Twitter one day and saw it described as having a very strong found family element, I immediately decided I needed to read this novel. And I can tell you right now: it was a really fun and fast-paced reading experience which I enjoyed immensely. With strong and unique characters, a magical road-trip full of obstacles and discoveries and amazing character development throughout the 393 pages, The Black Veins completely took me by surprise, in the best way possible.Read More »

Blog Tour: A Shifting of Stars Review & Favourite Quotes (+INTL Giveaway) 💜✨

Header (A Shifting of Stars)This is a spoiler-free review.

Hi everyone!

Fantasy is my favourite genre, and I read a lot of fantasy books. One might think things would get repetitive, plot twists easy to guess and characters blending together. But that’s not the case, and A Shifting of Stars by Kathy Kimbray was no exception. The story was a truly emotional one, with an heavy atmosphere and twists and turns I never saw coming. Each time I picked up the novel to read more chapters, I never knew what to expect, and I was proven wrong even when I thought I knew what could happen next, which made reading A Shifting of Stars captivating.Read More »

Spoiler-free review: Red, White & Royal Blue by Casey McQuiston 💕

red, white & royal blueHi everyone!

Red, White & Royal Blue was the novel I didn’t know I needed until I picked it up a few days ago, surprisingly being in a contemporary mood and having heard incredible things about the novel. I didn’t understand until about halfway through the novel why I was feeling that way about it. At first, I struggled a little bit with getting into the world I was presented with, because it was so close yet so different from the world today, maybe because I can be a pessimist sometimes. But after a while, I understood why I was enjoying it so much: it gave me hope. 💗

Spoiler-free review: Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo 📓

six of crows 4Hi everyone!

A quick look on my goodreads will tell you that I have shelved Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo with the book series I don’t intend to finish. This was a few years ago, when I read the first novel; it was alright, it wasn’t a bad book at all. I rated it 3 stars, but I didn’t enjoy it enough to want to continue with the trilogy.

Six of Crows then came out, and I was interested; it sounded pretty great. I saw and read so many great reviews for it so I was definitely intrigued. Still, I didn’t plan on reading it because I hadn’t finished the Grisha Trilogy and I didn’t see myself reading it without having finished the original series first. That’s a personal thing, I know, but it’s how I felt (and it’s mostly still how I feel when it comes to other novels, I don’t like staring in the middle of a series). So many people have told me I could read Six of Crows on its own just fine, that I would have no problem understanding things. And I believed them, but I wasn’t sure. Recently though, after being told this again, being in the mood for a novel like this one and my interest in the novel still being there, I told myself to just read it. Which I did, and I don’t regret it at all.Read More »
