So my recent and newfound love has been the Wayward Children series by Seanan McGuire. These books have been on my radar for a while but I’ve always wanted them in hardback form (I mean, have you seen the covers?!) and thanks to some lovely human beans, I have been able to finally start the series. I was toying with how to review these but eventually decided on writing mini-reviews for each book in the series thus far (my thoughts rather than a synopsis) so without further ado, here are some of my thoughts!

So with Pride fast approaching, I have been wracking my brain on how I can celebrate the month and I thought what better than to find even more of an excuse to read some diverse books. I asked around on Twitter if other people would like me to post this so they can maybe take part so I’ll let you know the way I’m planning the readathon! Continue reading “Pride Readathon 2020”
Although we are pretty much halfway through May now, I still wanted to shout about some of my most anticipated releases for this month. A lot of books that were originally on this list have now been pushed back but hopefully all the dates for these are still correct! I hope you’re all keeping safe and without further ado, here are my May 2020 anticipated YA releases. As always, make sure to check out my separate series with 100+ 2020 releases with LGBTQ+ characters here! Continue reading “MOST ANTICIPATED May 2020 YA RELEASES”
So during the end of March and throughout April, I went through a bit of a reading slump which ultimately meant a blog slump so I missed the April edition of this series. I thought about maybe skipping over it but then remembered, there were still releases I was excited for and still want to feature so here we go! Remember I have a separate series featuring 2020 releases with LGBTQ+ characters, so check it out here so I don’t repeat books!

Due to Animal Crossing coming out and the whole pandemic thing, I have not been in the mood for reading and for once, I didn’t feel too guilty about it. However, as I was sat out in my garden in the sunshine the other day twiddling my thumbs, I thought I’d pick up a book and another three closely followed. Here are some mini reviews of the books in question! Continue reading “Mini Reviews // End of Book Slump Edition”
#Griffskithon | Join us for a Sarah Maria Griffin Reading Month
So if you know me, you know I (along with part of our little bookish coven) love the work of Sarah Maria Griffin. After having a chat about how we need to re-read all of Sarah’s books, Beth came up with the idea of having a Griff readathon, and so after Lauren and I decided this was an amazing idea and wanted to join in, #Griffskithon was born.
We’re aware that some of you may have already planned your May TBRs or might be taking part in other readathons, so we’ve made ours super flexible so you can join in even if you don’t want to read a full novel.
We all truly enjoy Sarah’s writing as it brings us comfort or joy, hopefully you’ll join us too!

So as you may or may not know, Becky and I have fallen into the Animal Crossing New Horizons hole like many many people in the world. Because of that our reading has taken a bit of a back seat so what better way to combine our two loves than by creating a little tag you can all join in on! If you do want to take part, please tag us in the post or on Twitter etc so we can see your answers too! Continue reading “Animal Crossing New Horizons Book Tag // Original”
First and foremost, I’m going to apologise for my absence from the blog lately. With everything going on in the world, I wasn’t in the right mind space to produce posts I was proud of and that readers would enjoy. However, if there is one thing we can do now, it’s reading, especially some diverse books and authors. This series has got so much love and support and I am still astonished that I can now give you a seventh part! As always, these are in order of release (some already released of course), are all standalones or start-of-series and if I have got any information incorrect, please let me know in the comments! But most importantly, I hope you find a new favourite and stay safe. Continue reading “2020 LGBTQ+ RELEASES PART VII”
The small Connecticut town of Sanctuary is rocked by the death of its star quarterback.
Daniel’s death looked like an accident, but everyone knows his ex-girlfriend Harper is the daughter of a witch – and she was there when he died.
Then the rumours start. When Harper insists Dan was guilty of a terrible act, the town turns on her. So was his death an accident, revenge – or something even darker?
As accusations fly and secrets are revealed, paranoia grips the town, culminating in a trial that the whole world is watching…
Thanks to Gollancz for sending me a copy of Sanctuary!

Hidden deep in the mountains of Colorado lies the Inn at Havenfall, a sanctuary that connects ancient worlds–each with their own magic–together. For generations, the inn has protected all who seek refuge within its walls, and any who disrupt the peace can never return.
For Maddie Morrow, summers at the inn are more than a chance to experience this magic first-hand. Havenfall is an escape from reality, where her mother sits on death row accused of murdering Maddie’s brother. It’s where Maddie fell in love with handsome Fiorden soldier Brekken. And it’s where one day she hopes to inherit the role of Innkeeper from her beloved uncle.
But this summer, the impossible happens–a dead body is found, shattering everything the inn stands for. With Brekken missing, her uncle gravely injured, and a dangerous creature on the loose, Maddie suddenly finds herself responsible for the safety of everyone in Havenfall. She’ll do anything to uncover the truth, even if it means working together with an alluring new staffer Taya, who seems to know more than she’s letting on. As dark secrets are revealed about the inn itself, one thing becomes clear to Maddie–no one can be trusted, and no one is safe…
Huge thanks to Bloomsbury for sending me a proof of Havenfall!
