Review: Six of Crows

I have been putting this book off since it came out. I’m a big fan of all the tropes in it – found family, street gangs, heists – but something just wasn’t speaking to me. Perhaps the fact that I DNFed the Grisha series mid-way through the second book? Still, I finally made myself sit down with Six of Crows this week, and was ultimately… kind of underwhelmed.

Review: The Girl With The Dragon Heart

When I saw there was a sequel to The Dragon With A Chocolate Heart coming out, I squeaked, immediately put it on pre-order, and requested it on NetGalley. And I’m so glad I did, because this book is just SO good.

Review: Nevermoor – The Trials of Morrigan Crow

I’ve been seeing a lot about this book and how it’s the ‘next Harry Potter’ – apart from featuring 11 year olds introduced to magic, I don’t think they have much in common. However, this doesn’t stop Nevermoor from being an absolute delight of fun, darkness, magic and mystery!

Review: The Bumblebee Flies Anyway

Since we moved into the house we currently live in, I’ve had more of an interest in gardening than ever before. I’ve got an array of kitchen herbs, pots of roses, two deeply rebellious buddleias, and thanks to my in-laws, a new row of tomato plants! As we rent, a lot of our plants are in pots on the patio, and so I was very interested to read Kate Bradbury’s book about rescuing a small paved garden. Unfortunately, I was disappointed.
