Review: A Vow So Bold and Deadly

I’m going to start by saying this review will most likely contain spoilers for the first 2 books. If you haven’t read them I would suggest doing so and then coming back. I LOVED the first two books in this series. Book one blew me away and gave me such […]

I love a good retelling and this one has been on my TBR pile for a while. I read Melissa’s Lunar Chronicles series last year and I LOVED it! So when I saw this was on audio I just had to grab it. This book is set before Alice in […]

Review: A Heart So Fierce and Broken

A Curse So Dark and Lonely was one of my top reads in 2019! I love a Beauty and the Beast retelling and this is up there with some of the best. I have been waiting for this for what seems like forever. The last book was told almost exclusively […]

So I was late to the party for this series and I only read the first book at the end of last year just before the second book came out in January 2019. I have been so so excited about this third book and when the publication was brought forward […]

This is the final book in the Lunar Chronicles. I loved the first three and I couldn’t wait to see how the story ended. Picking up right where Cress ended Emporer Kai has been ‘kidnapped’ and Queen Levana is furious. Levana is one hell of a woman and I have […]

This is the third book in the Lunar Chronicles. Cress was first introduced in book one when she warns Cinder of Levana’s plan for Emperor Kai but this book is her story. Cress has been imprisoned on a satellite for most of her life. Our reimagined Rapunzel is a little […]

Review: Scarlet

After I devoured Cinder I jumped straight into Scarlet. I am a sucker for retellings and this series does it so well. Marissa puts her own twist on these much-loved classic stories. These are not your damsels in distress let me tell you. These girls are kicking ass and fighting […]

Review: Cinder

I love a retelling and I have heard lots about this series. Thankfully this did not disappoint. This book is set in the future, in New Beijing. A fourth world war has happened and we are now in peace times, well at least between the countries on Earth. Yes not […]
