Tower of Dawn review

★★★★ Tower of Dawn is the 6th installment in the Throne of Glass series. I'd had a massive break between Empire of Storms and this one because I went down to Cornwall to see my family for 3 weeks (can't believe that was a month ago!) After the excitement of the last book I was… Continue reading Tower of Dawn review

The Language of Flowers

★★★★★ I’ve had The Language of Flowers by Vanessa Diffenbaugh on my Kindle since a colleague at the first school I worked in (so about 7 years) recommended it to me. I think I’ve just been so distracted by fantasy and dystopian that I haven’t thought to read it until now. However, as I’m in… Continue reading The Language of Flowers

As soon as Crunden said it was dystopian, I was very keen to read it, dystopian being one of my favourite genres. A Touch… Continue reading A Touch of Death

Four Years Trapped In My Mind Palace

★★★★★ I was lucky enough to get a free ARC of this from Book Sirens. This was one that I chose to read as the blurb sounded interesting. I’d never heard of the author, Johan Twiss, before but I’ll be keeping an eye out on his other books! As the title suggests, the main character,… Continue reading Four Years Trapped In My Mind Palace

July Book Box Club Unboxing

The theme for July’s box was Magical Talents! I love any magical themes so I was excited to get this. The book featured was Splinters of Scarlet by Emily Bain Murphy. I haven’t read this yet but it has been all over bookstagram and seems to have a lot of love. Set in 19th Century Denmark,… Continue reading July Book Box Club Unboxing
