Since then, the fabulous Garth Nix, has released other books, not only in the Old Kingdom world, but also revisiting some of the… Continue reading Across the Wall by Garth Nix

A Thousand Ships by Natalie Haynes

A Thousand Ships was a fantastic collection of stories about the Trojan War, but intead of being about the warriors, these stories focused on the women who were involved. From the Goddesses to Helen, to princesses and queens taken hostage, there are several stories within that were absolutely amazing. I had such a hard time… Continue reading A Thousand Ships by Natalie Haynes

Fable by Adrienne Young

The characters were interesting but not overly complex, the plot flowed well and was captivating, and the romance scene was short and not overly sexual. Fable was a great character and her story was interesting and heart breaking. While it wasn't the most interesting book… Continue reading Fable by Adrienne Young

A Conjuring of Light by V.E. Schwab

Ahh finally. I have finished the A Darker Shade of Magic trilogy and it was everything that I was hoping for and more. So satisfying. There's nothing like a book series that ends just the way you want it too.

A warning to readers though, there are no trigger warnings at the beginning of the book, and I think there really needed to be.
