Cover Reveal: Thread of Hope by Rachel J Bonner

Thread of Hope.jpg

 

I have to admit that I am obsessed with this cover (how could I not be?); I love the artistic style because it’s really unique & the passion between Leonie & Prospero jumps off of the page!

This cover has made me so curious about the sequel to Strand of Faith & I’m very excited, especially considering that the first book was basically a fluffy romance.

The Navigator’s Touch by Julia Ember

The Navigator's TouchThe Navigator’s Touch brings pirates & mermaids together in a totally unique (& diverse) world, told with strong & incredibly emotive writing, that I couldn’t help but fall in love with. This is one of those books that is way more than you first expect & Julia’s writing is, yet again, world class.

Mini Review: XX by Angela Chadwick

XX

XX is one of those books that you go into with no idea what you’re going to get from it – but I, personally, loved it. The characters felt so life-like & the plot so realistic that, when I finished it, I had to remind myself that it was fiction, & not a biography.

I received a copy of this book from the publisher via NetGalley in return for an honest review.

The Sisters of the Winter Wood by Rena Rossner

The Sisters of the Winter Wood

I read this book a long time ago now & I’m only just reviewing it because I’m a mess… Nevertheless, The Sisters of the Winter Wood was wonderfully imaginative & truly unique. I appreciated how much of this book is based on fact, & it was easy to picture the whole tale as true history. The Sisters of the Winter Wood oozes magic & it’s almost as infectious as the Hovlin’s fruit.

I was sent this book by the publisher in return for an honest review.

Book Blitz Promo & Giveaway: Remote by Lisa Acerbo

Remote banner

When technology fulfils every dream, reality is a nightmare.

Below the streets of New State, the Grounders fight to remain free of the technological control of the world above. When dusk falls, Wren risks her life by entering the capital city as a raider to secure resources for the rebellion. Each step further inside puts her life in jeopardy from New State’s deadliest weapons – Phantoms. More machine than human, tortured until devoid of emotion and caring, Phantoms have only one objective. Kill. And they do it with exacting precision.

Wren is good at her job as a raider and committed to the cause until she meets Codex, a New State citizen who doesn’t quite fit her preconceived expectations. After a couple of awkward encounters, he shows her the meaning of hooking up—a computer simulation that allows people to live out their fantasies—without the complication of emotional entanglements or physical reality. But what Wren feels for Codex is very real. And it’s punishable by death.

As she and Codex grow closer, Wren convinces him to leave New State for the underground. But unrest between New State and the Grounders escalates, and Phantoms move in to destroy her world. Nothing goes as Wren planned. Families are arrested, loyalties are strained, and Wren’s forced to choose between her people and her feelings. The wrong choice could mean the end of her people, and reality could slip away—forever…
