I don’t want to say too much about this book because I genuinely think it needs to be explored first hand.

Think you’ve read all you can about strangers writing letters to each other? Think again.

This is a special book. The writing in this is superb and author Kemmerer has done a spectacular job at bleeding emotion into every page. I was really taken with Juliet and Declan’s story and their journey held my attention from start to end. Written with heart and featuring a mix of complex, uplifting, funny and downright sad moments, Letters to the Lost is a must read for the YA lover.

[Teaser Review] A Court of Wings & Ruin

I am going to be writing a “full, very long winded, snacks will be required, stay hydrated while reading” review for this book shortly, but thought I would just let you know my initial thoughts.

“Remember that you are a wolf. And you cannot be caged.”

A Court of Wings and Ruin by Sarah J. Maas

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I don’t even think there are enough words to describe how wonderful this book is.

One thing I love about Sarah J. Maas is it doesn’t matter how many different worlds she creates, they are consistently complex, vivid and full of unique life. ACOWAR is a perfect example of this. The character development in this book is outstanding and the grand battle sequences are diabolical in all the best ways. Everything feels like it comes full circle and I can’t fault one thing.

I’m interested to see where the next few books go as this really felt like a wrap up of the Feyre and Rhys storyline but I know there are more glorious things to come.

Highly recommend you pick this series up.

[Review] A Conjuring of Light

29939230Quick fire review:

I don’t think it really needs to be said, but this book was awesome. No. It was fucking awesome.

This book was much darker, edgier and far more mysterious than the previous books but that beloved tone and sharp writing that made you fall in love with this series still exists at its core. Schwab is a genius and I will fight anyone who says otherwise.

My rating? ALL THE STARS IN EVERY UNIVERSE FROM NOW UNTIL ETERNITY.

Brace yourself for some sweet f-bombs and an overuse of mismatched quotes.

This book was hilarious, sexy and absolutely fantastic. The premise of this book grabbed me instantly and I loved how Michelle Mankin really ran with it without making the story seem crass or contrite. One of my favourite parts is the bravado of main character Raven and her best friend Marsha. Together they are a fiery unit and I love how Marsha really encourages Raven to live outside her comfort zone.

Of course these books are all about the male love interest and my gosh is Lucky a killer addition to this story. Sweet, edgy and ripped AF, the British Rocker brings some awesome chemistry to the story and some much needed romantic drama.

Thanks for sending me a copy, I absolutely loved it. Highly recommend if you enjoy some smut.

[Review] The Room Mate

Quick fire review:

Look at those abs!

Well this was hot. Cannon and Paige are now up there with one of my favourite couples of this genre. I’ve never read anything by Kendall Ryan before but I absolutely loved her writing style and the way she mixes the sexy and sweet tones so perfectly. Highly recommend.

This is a standalone new adult romance with explicit sex scenes.
