Blog Tour Review: The Merest Loss by Steven Neil

The Merest LossI’m writing this review for the second time as my original review vanished into the internet without a trace – which is also why this is a day late; massive apologies to Steven Neil & Rachel.

In both of my reviews you would’ve read that I adored this story – although it did take me some time to get into. I recommend this book to any & all history lovers.

Blog Tour Review: Strand of Faith Rachel J. Bonner

Strand of FaithDue to having to go to training for work on the weekends I had to email Rachel, the organiser for this tour, & tell her that I wouldn’t be able to review Strand of Faith… however, with a little bit of hard work & perseverance I did actually manage to finish this book the day before my review was due to go up – so yay me! I’m super glad I did manage to fit this book in because I enjoyed it’s characters & have been left intrigued about the rest of the series.

Blog Tour Review & Giveaway: Thalidomide Kid by Kate Rigby

Thalidomide Kid.jpegAs a disabled reviewer reading books about disabled people is something I try to do as often as I can, so when Rachel contacted me about reviewing this book I had no choice but to accept. The disability rep in the book is quite good, although there were parts I would’ve changed personally, but I feel the title is a little misleading as the book has two protagonists & the one without the disability takes the spotlight.

I was sent this book by Rachel’s Random Resources in return for an honest review as part of a blog tour.

 

This book contains ableism, homophobia, mental health issues, discussions of suicidal feelings,
discussions of minors engaging in sexual activity, drug/alcohol abuse, abortion & other sensitive subjects.

Release Day Review: Braid of Sand by Alicia Gaile

Braid of Sand

Due to having a busy schedule of ARCs & blog tours over the past couple of months it took me way longer to start Braid of Sand than I would’ve liked, & after reading it I wish I’d started it earlier even more because it was so good. Braid of Sand is a Rapunzel retelling, but Raziela isn’t a damsel in distress – she’s a warrior protecting the lands of her goddess – & she totally kicks ass.

I was sent this book by Snowy Wings Publishing & Alicia Gaile in return for an honest review.

 

 

This book contains violence & starvation throughout!
