Can’t Wait Wednesday : Song of the Dead by Sarah Glenn Marsh

Whether you want to call it by the old name of Waiting on Wednesday ran by Jill at Breaking the Spine or the newer Can’t Wait Wednesday held over at Wishful Endings – today is the day to highlight upcoming books you’re excited for.

I’m starting this weekly meme with one that’s being released soon and I’m super excited for my preorder of!

Karthia is nothing like it used to be. The kingdom’s borders are open for the first time in nearly three hundred years, and raising the dead has been outlawed. Odessa is determined to explore the world beyond Karthia’s waters, hoping to heal a heart broken in more ways than she can count. But with Meredy joining the ocean voyage, vanquishing her sorrow will be a difficult task.

Despite the daily reminder of the history they share, Odessa and Meredy are fascinated when their journey takes them to a land where the Dead rule the night and dragons roam the streets. Odessa can’t help being mesmerized by the new magic–and by the girl at her side. But just as she and Meredy are beginning to explore the new world, a terrifying development in Karthia summons them home at once.

Growing political unrest on top of threats from foreign invaders means Odessa and Meredy are thrust back into the lives they tried to leave behind while specters from their past haunt their tenuous relationship. Gathering a force big enough to ward off enemies seems impossible, until one of Queen Valoria’s mages creates a weapon that could make them invincible. As danger continues to mount inside the palace, Odessa fears that without the Dead, even the greatest invention won’t be enough to save their fates.

In this enthralling, heartrending sequel to Reign of the Fallen, Odessa faces the fight of her life as the boundaries between the Dead and the living are challenged in a way more gruesome than ever before.

The Problem with The Cruel Prince

If you’ve not heard of The Cruel Prince by now then I don’t know where you’ve been. Released om early 2018, the latest series by Holly Black introduced us to Jude, a mortal living as a lady in the fae realm and Cardan, a faerie prince who wants her gone.

You read that right.

Jude and Cardan are the main couple in the series. Supposedly a hate to love relationship, what you actually get is, well, toxic. Cardan hated Jude for what she was and hated the fact he wanted her. She hated him for the way he treated it and uses the power she gets against him.

Book Review: A Vision in Crimson by Kathryn Troy

You might see that I have a link to my email on this blog and on Instagram so authors can contact me if they wish. Kathryn Troy did that for her book A Vision in Crimson and I happily accepted! This means that I received a copy of this book free in return for an honest review.

Mutual attraction ignites their weary hearts. The rogue hunter follows Katelyn into a world teeming with wonder and danger, forsaking his own quest to root out his father.  

But his father has not forgotten him.

Book Review: Enchantee by Gita Trelease

I’ve not had much luck with ARCs recently. I’ve not really enjoyed a lot of the ones I’ve been lucky to be granted. But Enchantee finally bucked the trend! I got a free e-book copy through NetGalley and I thoroughly enjoyed it.

Camille and her family are incredibly poor and the only chance of survival is if Camille practices la magie ordinaire. But changing coins only lasts so long and soon she has to change herself and step through the gates of Versailles to have any hope of surviving.

Pins, Charms and T-Shirts – Anime Fan-Merch Shops!

Part of what I’m trying to do with this blog is open it up to more things I love. I’m a huge fan of anime, manga and video games. They take up a lot of my time and they’re a lot of my inspiration for my writing.

So unsurprisingly, I like buying pins and other things and since I went to the London Comic Con back in May, I’ve kind of been on a spree to buy a lot of things.

The shops I’m listing are only a few of the ones I’ve bought from but they’re all worth buying from!
