5 Star TBR predictions! ★★★★★

Hello everyone! I was supposed to blog this morning, but alas! your girl fell asleep. So instead I’m writing this now. I saw Mercy @ Mercy’s Bookish Musings do a video a while back, in which she talked about the books on her TBR she thinks she will give 5 stars to. I thought this was a really cool idea, so I’ve decided to attempt my own list!

Book review/rant: Mage’s Blood by David Hair (Moontide Quartet #1) | In which I complain, like, a lot

(I’ve been putting off writing this review for ages, simply because this book was problematic as hell and it’s gonna make for a damn long blog post. Ugh.)

Mage’s Blood is the first book in the Moontide Quartet series, set in an epic fantasy world in which two continents are separated by a bridge that can only be crossed once every 12 years. The next Moontide is getting nearer, and some magical shit is going down.

Book review: The Girl in 6E by A. R. Torre (Deanna Madden #1)

I don’t write negative reviews very often, because most of the books I read I end up loving or at least enjoying quite a lot. This was not the case with The Girl in 6E. It’s not absolutely terrible, and it has its good parts, but what is described as a ‘shocking’ erotic thriller is mostly just a boring, oversexualised novel that reads like fanfiction.

Book hoarding and the pressure of blogging {discussion}

Hello hello!

I’m in an extraordinarily good mood today, so I figured I might as well get some blogging done! I have a topic on my mind that I’ve been thinking about a lot since I started blogging: the pressure of book blogging in regards to buying books! Let’s get right into it, shall we?

Book review: The Dark Prophecy by Rick Riordan (The Trials of Apollo #2)

The second book in Rick Riordan’s Trials of Apollo series, The Dark Prophecy follows the Greek god Apollo as he is cast down to live a mortal life as the awkward teenage boy Lester, trying to gain back his status as a god while struggling with all things mortal and discovering something resembling kindness. While I wasn’t a huge fan of the first book, this was absolutely amazing – and here’s why.
