Review: Robbergirl

It’s taken me an age to get around to reading Robbergirl – I was offered a copy to review by the author back in February during #reviewpit! – and I’m really regretting not reading it earlier, because it’s gorgeous!

Blog Tour: Girls of Paper and Fire Paperback – What Did I Notice On A Second Read?

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!

What I Read In Japan!

Over the last 16 days I’ve got through 30 books, which I’m really pleased with! Some of these will get full reviews, but for now, here’s a summary of what I thought.

The flight out:

I tried to sleep on the plane, I really did… But no sleep was to be had. Luckily, that means I managed 8 books on the flight out (and watched Zootropolis, which I really enjoyed!) Continue reading “What I Read In Japan!”
