Today I am helping to show the world the cover of Rachel J Bonner’s third book in the Choices & Consequences series. I am a big fan of this series & am very eager to get my hands on this addition to the series; the cover follows the examples of the previous two & shows the mystery & magic that the series involves. This cover also shows the two main characters separated, unlike on the cover of book two, which makes me wonder about the events to come…
You can find my review for book one, Strand of Faith, here & my review of book two, Thread of Hope, here.
Keep reading to find out more about Weave of Love!
So, although I’m back dating this post it is going up a day late (boo you depression) so I would like to apologise to both Rachel & John Steinberg.
Nadine is a story of a woman & the memory she left behind; it’s about the West End, dancing & falling in love with the wrong people. It’s not my usual kind of read, but there were definitely parts that I really enjoyed.
I was sent this book to review as part of a blog tour organised by Rachel’s Random Resources.
⚠️ Contemplation of abortion, mentions of the Holocaust, cancer,
dementia, suicide, xenophobia, references to people trafficking, drug use ⚠️
Seed of Rage is great for fans of The Poppy War; it’s a dark fantasy that presents itself as YA but the graphic detail of violence means it can only be an adult adventure. This book is a wild adventure that completely consumed me & I am obsessed with that cover!
I was sent this book to review as part of a blitz organised by Xpresso Tours.
⚠️ Silverlegs is a grimdark fantasy novel set in a world inspired by the late Roman empire. The heroine evolves in an environment that is violent, classist, misogynistic, and homophobic. This book questions religious fanaticism. It contains elements of sexual violence, rape, and graphic violence – warnings provided by the author ⚠️
This is a review that I don’t know how to write. This is a book that I don’t know how to describe. Moïra is an author that I don’t know how to praise. This story. Just wow.
I was sent this book by the publisher in return for an honest review. I was also subsequently invited to take part in the blog tour.
⚠️ Homophobia from the start, sexism, discussions of rape, child abuse, violence, abortion & the illegality of abortion in Ireland, child death, & other themes that may cause upset ⚠️
Altered is a romantic, slow-burning fantasy with world-building that’s impossible to resist; I loved main concept of this book, the “Made Ones” & it’s a theme that I’ve never encountered before. Vicki Stiefel has created both a hot & steamy romance, & an addictive & immersive fantasy, whose world I cannot wait to return to.
Also, how beautiful is that cover?
I was sent this book to review as part of a blog tour organised by Xpresso Tours.
⚠️ This book contains violence, detailed scenes of a sexual nature,
a protagonist with PTSD & Huntington’s disease, some ableist slurs,
references to an abusive marriage & some sexism ⚠️
So July’s Sum-Up Sunday is coming at y’all a week late, but that was because of my posts about YALC & LFCC so I hope you will forgive me. July was yet another bad mental health month, but it was also a fantastic reading month so not all is bad.
Oh my goodness, this book gripped me hard & didn’t let me go until the very final word; Castle of Concrete is way more than it’s back-cover synopsis suggests… yes it’s a romance, but it’s mainly about identity & being discriminated against, with a strong pulse of politics in the background. This book was an emotional roller coaster & one that I fell head over heels in to.
I was sent this book by the author in return for an honest review.
⚠️ This book contains antisemitism, Holocaust denial, violence, bullying
& references to real political events that may be upsetting for some readers ⚠️
V is a genius. She also frequently forgets her own name.
Raised to put science over self, V must link her brain with fifteen other people, making her one of the world’s smartest humans. With this privilege comes a life dedicated to continual research inside a secluded facility, a life devoid of freedom. But she is losing her identity, unable to predict which face will peer back at her from the nearest mirror.
Escaping this life will mean freedom to think for herself, but it will mean abandoning everything she’s ever known, ever loved. Will it be worth it?
Yesterday my post on YALC went up, & as promised here is my post about my experience of LFCC; this year was the first year I properly looked round LFCC & I was pleased to have my boyfriend by my side as it’s a very intimidating space to be in. Nevertheless I bought some lovely items & got to meet Jenna Coleman!!
This year was my fourth time visiting the Young Adult Literature Convention (or, YALC), the bookish section of London Film & Comicon (or, LFCC). However, this year was very different from my previous three visits – the biggest difference was that I didn’t go on my own this year, but I also spent a lot of my time in LFCC this year, as the YALC line-up didn’t excite me as much as usual.
This was initially going to be one big post, but I ranted too much, so I’ve separated it in two – today I’m going to talk about YALC & tomorrow I’m going to talk about LFCC (my Sum-Up Sunday post for July will be next week instead).
