The Beast and the Bethany – Jack Meggitt-Phillips [WriteReads Ultimate Blog Tour]

First things first – thank you to The Write Reads for including me on this tour, and for Egmont Books for providing an ARC of the book. The ARC, being what it is, did not have the full illustrations included, and I can only imagine how wonderful the full version will be once it’s out.Continue reading “The Beast and the Bethany – Jack Meggitt-Phillips [WriteReads Ultimate Blog Tour]”

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]”

Shades of Magic, Volume 1: The Steel Prince – V.E. Schwab [Books]

I’ve mentioned it before, but I really am such a huge Schwab fan. I’m slowly making my way through her books, and have so far not been disappointed by a single one. The Shades of Magic series is definitely one of the best fantasy series’ I’ve read in a long time, and the ending ofContinue reading “Shades of Magic, Volume 1: The Steel Prince – V.E.

March 2020 Reading Wrap Up – Part One [Books]

January Wrap Up / February Wrap Up I read 16 books in March. It was a very strange month – GP advised me to remain isolated for 2 weeks, which meant I missed the last two weeks of my workplace being open. There was then a gap where they didn’t know if we’d be able toContinue reading “March 2020 Reading Wrap Up – Part One [Books]”

Peter Pan – J.M. Barrie, Audible Original Drama [Books]

I have to admit, it’s been a fairly long while since I actually read Peter Pan. When this popped up for free on Audible, I snatched it up, I’m finding I really like full cast audiobooks, and I was excited for this version of the story. Unfortunately, I didn’t really find it that great. Some ofContinue reading “Peter Pan – J.M. Barrie, Audible Original Drama [Books]”
