BOOK REVIEW: Grave Sight, by Charlaine Harris

Rereading Grave Sight was more enjoyable than I anticipated. Ten years later and I think my emotional connection to Harper may have grown. Grave Sight follows Harper Connelly a woman who travels across the USA with her step-brother Tolliver finding the dead when conventional resources fail. Struck by lightning as a teenager, Harper can see the deceased’s final moments and sense their final resting place. Called to yet another small

BOOK REVIEW: Neverwhere, by Neil Gaiman | #TBRChallenge

February’s #TBRChallenge theme was Backlist Glooms which means any author who had more than one book on your TBR. For this challenge, I chose Neil Gaiman’s Neverwhere. Even though I haven’t actually read a large number of his books, I still count Gaiman as one of my favourite authors and one of my auto-buy authors. Whenever I fall into a writing slump, I also turn to Gaiman for inspiration (I’m writing this while

BOOK REVIEW: Tempest Legacy, by Nicole Peeler

Tempest Legacy is a fast-paced addition to the Jane True universe. There is no slow build for Jane in this book, expect an explosion of activity and a relentless pace throughout. Warning, this is the third book in the series so do not read if you don’t want spoilers. Jane True is a selkie halfling who recently discovered that she’s anything but normal and the world around her isn’t all that

BOOK REVIEW: Ashes Reborn, by Keri Arthur

Ashes Reborn is the fourth book in the Souls of Fire series and unfortunately could end up being another Memory Zero. Dread is, unfortunately, overshadowing my enjoyment of this action-packed instalment. Ashes Reborn picks up a couple of days after the roaring events of Flameout. Emberly races against the clock to get revenge against the sadistic and mysterious Rinaldo for Rory’s death and the pain of his rebirth. Emberly and Jackson are forced

BOOK REVIEW: Hell’s Bell, by Keri Arthur

Hell’s Bell is the second book in Keri Arthur’s new Lizzie Grace series. The first book was an excellent introduction to Lizzie and this action-packed instalment did not fail to entice us with more hints at Lizzie’s past. RECAP Lizzie Grace is an odd witch, a disappointment her family claimed. She’s supposedly a low-powered anomaly for a blueblood-witch family but no one has ever considered that Lizzie and Belle, her human familiar,

BOOK REVIEW: Grave Ransom, by Kalayna Price

Grave Ransom is the fifth book in the Alex Craft urban fantasy series and I just can’t get enough of Kalayna Price’s work. Alex Craft is a private investigator and consultant for the police with a twist: she can speak to the dead. Not in the usual psychic sense, Alex is a grave witch operating in a world where the supernatural aim to work in tandem with humans. Nekros City

BOOK REVIEW: Flameout, by Keri Arthur

Flameout is the third book in the Souls of Fire series and it’s just as fast-paced and high impact as the first two books. My love for Keri Arthur’s work just keeps growing. Flameout follows Emberly, a Phoenix living with her fated mate in Melbourne, as she falls further down the psychotic rabbit hole of Melbourne’s changing status quo. PIT’s manpower is spread thin between struggling to control the outbreak of

BOOK REVIEW: Deja Who, by MaryJanice Davidson

There’s something about Deja Who that I could easily connect to watching a four-car pile-up; you know you should stop watching (or in this case reading) but you just can’t turn away. Now I’m going to preface this review with a disclaimer: I used to love MaryJanice Davidson. In the beginning, I loved Betsy and, despite what some reviewers say about Fred being a carbon copy of Betsy, I loved Fred.

My Favourite Reads of 2017

This month I bit the bullet and finally filmed and uploaded a video to Booktube. In my second video, I talked about my 2017 favourite reads and explained some of my reasons – as best I could considering I hadn’t written up my thoughts. In this video, I talk about the following books: The Hating Game, by Sally Thorne (New Adult Contemporary) Blood Kissed, by Keri Arthur (Urban Fantasy) Wardrobe

BOOK REVIEW: Firstlife by Gena Showalter

Gena Showalter’s world-building in ‘Firstlife‘ is exquisite. Two sides of the afterlife, or Secondlife, light and dark warring with each other for control. Showalter succeeded in cementing the traits of each side, making them both outwardly appealing to the reader at first. ‘Firstlife’ is the story of Ten, a young girl who refuses to be forced to make her choice for Secondlife for other people. The grandeur of her parents
