Wow do I have thoughts about this one. Like – let me get it out of the way and say that this is beautifully written (seriously, Ray’s description and pacing and tone and everything seduced me looong before we got to the sex scenes); the characters are fucking awesome; the magic is breathtaking; the worldbuilding […]

I received this book for free from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review. This a wonderful graphic novel that I read in a single setting – I couldn’t put it down, and had no desire to! Mooncakes felt […]
This deserves every bit of the hype it’s received. Despite the promise of f/f, this wasn’t actually a book I was originally especially excited about – I don’t usually have a lot of interest in dystopias, which was what this sounded like, and I guess the blurb struck me as sounding a little too…conventional YA?

I suspect most people who pick this up are going to enjoy it immensely, but although it was one of my most anticipated reads of the year…this one’s just not for me.
This beautiful novella is without question going onto both my favourites and best-of-2019 shelves – and Parker Foye has won a permanent place on my list of auto-buy authors.

*Deep breath* Okay. I’m okay. Wow. I’ve seen people raving about this book for quite a while now; many trusted sources from all over the place. I even picked it up at some point, but I didn’t get past the first few pages. I must have been in a weird headspace or something, because as […]
This is a wonderful little book – I pre-ordered it on a whim, mainly because I’ve found Carriger’s writing entertaining before and I’m always interested to see takes on alien gender and sexuality. I didn’t expect it to be as sweet and adorable as it in fact was, and despite a few tragic revelations it […]
As someone too fond of both alliteration and scouring publisher’s catalogs, Monday is the day I list some of the upcoming books I’m most looking forward to! And it being Pride Month, these will be skewed even more heavily than usual in the direction of queer lit.
This was a book I picked up and set down again almost at once – right up until Kathy’s glowing review of the sequel over at Pages of the Vaulted Sky. Being a completest, I wasn’t going to read the sequel first, so I tracked down City of Lost Fortunes and sat down to give […]
