This sequel to The Jasmine Throne impressed me much more than book one!
Back in 2021 I was on the blog tour for Malice, the first book in a sapphic duology retelling Sleeping Beauty from the point of view of the villain – well, the second half of the series is here, and it’s a fantastic and surprising end to the story!
A lyrical, original, queer take on Beauty and the Beast, perfect for those who love historical retellings and thought-provoking emotional journeys.
A sapphic, witchy book with the vibes of The Great Gatsby, this is definitely going to be a hit with a lot of readers… but not so much for me!Continue reading “Review: Wild and Wicked Things by Francesca May”
A double review today, for a pair of novellas that are so good, I’m almost angry I didn’t write them…Continue reading “Review: A Spindle Splintered and A Mirror Mended by Alix E Harrow”
It has taken me forever to read this book, but I think I did actually end up reading it at just the right time…
High fantasy doesn’t get much sweeter than this cosy tale of an orc who gives up the adventuring life for her dream of running a coffee-shop…
I really wasn’t expecting to enjoy this book as much as I did – but I ended up having a good time!
The Jasmine Throne has been on everyone’s radar this year, I think, but for me, I think it was one of those books where the hype worked against it…
This cosy, cottagecore f/f fantasy romance is going to tick a lot of boxes for a lot of people – I loved it!
