Review: All Girls by Emily Layden

I had forgotten the pitch for All Girls by the time I came around to reading it, and all I could remember was that it was a thriller set at elite boarding school. That pitch does not describe the book I read, but nevertheless the book was a pleasant surprise. A keenly perceptive coming-of-age novel, All… Continue reading Review: All Girls by Emily Layden

Review: Raybearer by Jordan Ifueko

Raybearer was my first read of 2021 and I couldn't have picked a better book to start the year. After my passion for reading was dwindling towards the end of 2020 Ifueko has absolutely blown me away. Nothing is more important than loyalty. But what if you’ve sworn to protect the one you were born… Continue reading Review: Raybearer by Jordan Ifueko

Review: People Like Her by Ellery Lloyd

Followed by Millions, Watched by One To her adoring fans, Emmy Jackson, aka @the_mamabare, is the honest “Instamum” who always tells it like it is.  To her skeptical husband, a washed-up novelist who knows just how creative Emmy can be with the truth, she is a breadwinning powerhouse chillingly brilliant at monetizing the intimate details of… Continue reading Review: People Like Her by Ellery Lloyd

Review: The Impossible State by Victor Cha

As my first book in my 2021 non-fiction reading challenge, The Impossible State felt at times like an impossible challenge. It was randomly selected for me by the tbr game I am playing each month and it has been high up on my priority list of physically owned non fiction. In The Impossible State, seasoned international-policy expert and… Continue reading Review: The Impossible State by Victor Cha

Review: The Devil and the Dark Water by Stuart Turton

A delightful coincidence lead me to pick up The Bone Ships. It was the first book I received in a bespoke book subscription I purchased and the blurb on the back of the book had me interested. Cut to a few months later, and I get approved for the second book in the trilogy on Netgalley. I decided to dive into this series and read the first two books close together.

Review: The Immortalists by Chloe Benjamin

Sometimes I get in the mood to specifically read a hardback book. Majority of the books I own are paperbacks, and I prefer to read a paperback book, but I have collected a fair amount of hardbacks in the past few years. Usually that means these books are gifts, highly anticipated so I couldn't wait… Continue reading Review: The Immortalists by Chloe Benjamin

Series Review: Broken Earth Trilogy

N. K. Jemisin's award winning series, The Broken Earth, became the first ever series where every book in the series won a Hugo award in 2018 with the release of The Stone Sky.
