The sequel to Kitra is another fun, small-scale space adventure that’s perfect for a lighter sci-fi read!
This bind up of three novellas in the Skyward series is an interesting addition to the story, but a frustrating one, because it seems essential to the series plot arc, while being marketed as side stories.
A fun sci-fi romp perfect for younger teens and those who like their sci-fi on the cosy side!Continue reading “Review: Kitra by Gideon Marcus”

Remember how much I adored Viper by Bex Hogan, the Slytherin pirate book of my dreams? Well, refresh yourself on my review here, and then come back, because today I’m on the blog tour for the amazing sequel, Venom!
I’ll be reviewing Venom itself next week, because today the spotlight is on the amazing world Bex has created.

When it comes to YA, one of my favourite kinds is the sparkly-dresses-and-marriage-contest kind – think The Selection for the perfect archetype. So I was really excited to hear about The Stars We Steal, which combines those tropes with a space setting and draws inspiration from Jane Austen’s Persuasion – and it was everything I wanted it to be!
