Review: Vengeful

Review: Vengeful

If you haven’t read V.E. Schwab’s Vicious yet, then you simply MUST. Not only is it an incredible work of fiction, but after a four and half year wait, it has a sequel, Vengeful. When I ‘reviewed’ Vicious on Goodreads a few years ago, all I could manage were two words “bloody brilliant”. That statement […]

Review: Spinning Silver

Review: Spinning Silver

Having read, and loved, Uprooted when it was first published (you can find my thoughts here), I couldn’t wait to get my hands on Naomi Novik’s latest novel, Spinning Silver. Inspired by fairy tales, with specific influence from Rumpelstiltskin, this is a thoroughly enchanting read. A Wee Summary We follow three young women whose paths […]

Mini Review: Ruined

Mini Review: Ruined

  Sometimes I go through phases where I’m enjoying what I’m reading but I’m not consumed by it. It seems I’ve had a run of those recently – until now. I picked up Ruined and from the outset, I was swept up in the story. It was just what I needed – action, intrigue and a […]
