Lava Red Feather Blue – Molly Ringle

Publisher: Central Avenue PublishingFormat: MOBIRelease Date: 5th January, 2021 Rating: 4/5 Stars I want to note something here before getting into the review. I’m used to ARCs having poor formatting, but this was possibly one of the worst I’ve actually seen – it made reading it difficult, and I very nearly DNF’d this early on.Continue reading “Lava Red Feather Blue – Molly Ringle”

The Never Tilting World – Rin Chupeco [Books]

Genre: Fantasy Publisher: HarperTeen Rating: First, I absolutely loved this book. Second, I have no idea why it’s noted as ‘Frozen meets Mad Max’ in the Goodreads summary. The ‘Mad Max’ aspect I totally get. But Frozen? Why? Because it’s…sisters? This book is more akin to Final Fantasy, in really good ways. It’s got theContinue reading “The Never Tilting World – Rin Chupeco [Books]”
