You know I jump at the chance to review Mills and Boon/Harlequin’s historical romance, so I was intrigued by Reclaimed by her Rebel Knight, as I don’t think I’ve read one set in the 13th century before! It turned out to be a lovely character-driven read that showcases a far more gentle and caring relationship than the title might suggest…

I am always on the look out for fantasy with a sense of humour – not necessarily funny or satirical, but something light-hearted and entertaining, rather than depressing and stodgy. Grimdark is really not my cup of tea. So I was incredibly excited to hear about Lord of Secrets, which was described as light, funny, and heartwarming in its press release – and boy did it deliver that and so much more!

So, in case you didn’t know, Girls of Paper and Fire was one of my top ten books last year! It’s a YA fantasy with everything I love to read (except perhaps a small lack of pirates…): girls discovering their own internal power; harem politics; part-human-part-animal demons; gorgeous dresses; and a brilliant f/f relationship! If you want to check out my review from last year, then click here – but essentially, I loved it. When I was asked to be on the blog tour for the paperback release of the book, I knew immediately what I wanted to do: a slow, thorough reread, to see what little nuances and tidbits I’d missed while I was devouring the plot for the first time…
If you haven’t read the book, I recommend looking at a synopsis before you read this post, because while I’ll try to keep it spoiler-free, I won’t be rehashing the plot, so you might get a little lost if you don’t know the premise!

Today I’m thrilled to be on the blog tour for The Rage of Dragons, an epic, classic feeling, own-voices African-inspired fantasy with a protagonist you can’t help but be compelled by! I’m bringing you an exciting action-packed extract from the first chapter, where Tau, our main character, faces his first battle against the marauding hedeni…
There,” Tau said, pointing at a flickering light in the distance.
“Do you see it?” The light was bright against the evening’s darkness, but he was never sure how far Jabari could see.
“I see it,” Jabari said. “They’re burning Daba.” Continue reading “Blog Tour: The Rage Of Dragons”
Okay, so this ticks two of my major reading boxes – Regency romance with magic, and Garth Nix! I’ve been a fan since Sabriel, so this was a must-read for me, and it more than lived up to my expectations!

If you love stories where the stakes are high and the games are twisty, then The Gameshouse is where you need to go…

I love a cosy witch story, so when I saw this beautiful graphic novel pop up on NetGalley, and realised that not only did it have witches, it had queer witches, I just had to request it!

Seeing this post-apocalyptic tale compared to Station Eleven (which I really didn’t like!), I had some trepidation going in. I shouldn’t have worried, though, as A Boy and his Dog at the End of the World is a wholly different beast, and I loved it!
