If you’ve been following me for a while, you’ll know that I absolutely fell in love with Victor Dixen’s Ascension, a book billed as ‘Love Island in space’, but which turned out to be a twisty, exciting thriller of a book with amazing characters (review here). The second book in the Phobos series, Distortion, was an equally amazing read which really upped the ante, and my review for that is here. I’m now eagerly awaiting the third book, and to get you all excited, I’m taking part in the blog tour for Distortion and bringing you the books that Victor himself would take with him on a one way trip to Mars!

I was lucky enough to win a proof of A Pinch of Magic from Twitter, and I’m so so glad I got to read this one early! It’s a gorgeous, dark, lush tale of magic and sisterhood, which has found a firm place on my ‘favourites’ shelf.

In amongst my dragons, witches, and spaceships, I can often be tempted by an interesting-sounding non fiction book. A certain morbid curiosity made me take a look at Unnatural Causes when I saw it pop up on NetGalley, and it turned out to be a fascinating read for several reasons.

Something a little unusual for me today… If you follow me on Twitter, it’ll be no surprise to you that I’m pretty much obsessed with the Niffler from the Fantastic Beasts movies, so when Jacqueline the Pufflehuffle Kitteh tagged me to do her Fantastic Beasts book tag, I was so excited!

Patrick Samphire is the husband of Stephanie Burgis, who is one of my very favourite authors. I saw her tweeting about this series – Regency! on Mars! with dinosaurs! – and knew I had to give it a go – safe to say, this is a very talented couple…

An unusual second post from me today! I’m branching out from reviews to tackle my excessively huge TBR, which you can take a look at here. I’ve got so many things to choose from, I’ve started getting decision fatigue, so I asked my three closest bookish pals to help me out and choose a few things each that they’d like to see me read!

Judith and I have been friends for years in real life (we were each other’s bridesmaids!), and we’ve been swapping book recommendations since we’ve known each other. She thinks every book would be improved by adding more dragons.

I know, I know, we’re barely into November and I’m already mentioning the dreaded ‘Christmas’! I’m not the sort of person to start Christmas immediately after Halloween (I love autumn too much), but I couldn’t resist the sound of this cute Christmas book when I got the invite to the blog tour!
