BLOG TOUR: The Sky Weaver by Kristen Ciccarelli // Review

Title: The Sky Weaver by Kristen Ciccarelli

Rating: ★★★★

Release: 12th November 2019

Synopsis: At the end of one world, there always lies another. Safire, a soldier, knows her role in this world is to serve the King of Firgaard—helping to maintain the peace in her oft-troubled nation. Eris, a deadly pirate, has no such conviction. Known as the Death Dancer for her ability to evade even the most determined of pursuers, she possesses a superhuman power to move between worlds. When one can roam from dimension to dimension, can one ever be home? Can love and loyalty truly exist? Now Safire and Eris—sworn enemies—find themselves on a common mission: to find Asha, the last Namsara. From the port city of Darmoor to the fabled faraway Star Isles, their search and their stories become woven ever more tightly together as they discover the uncertain fate they’re hurtling towards may just be a shared one. In this world—and the next.

Monthly TBR

MentalHealthAThon TBR!

Hi everyone!

I’m back with my readathon TBR posts! I still absolutely adore doing readathons, and when I saw this one – I knew I just had to do it. The idea behind it is so amazing and I think it’s SO important to read these books. As someone who deals with mental health issues on a daily basis, I was shocked to see how little representation I had on my shelf – so this month that is going to change!

I know this TBR is VERY late going up – but I figured it’s better late than never!

This readathon runs from the 1st May until the 31st May and is hosted by A Beautiful Chaos of Books and it has this beautiful bingo board of prompts!

Let’s talk about my TBR! If you want to know the full details of the readathon and the prompts please find it here!divider-2461548_1280

Title: An American Story by Christopher Priest

This sounded so heartbreaking and so interesting, I knew I had to read it!

Synopsis: Ben Matson lost someone he loved in the 9/11 attacks. Or thinks he did – no body has been recovered, and she shouldn’t have been on that particular plane at that time. But he knows she was. The world has moved on from that terrible day. Nearly 20 years later, it has faded into a dull memory for most people. But a chance encounter rekindles Ben’s interest in the event, and the inconsistencies that always bothered him. Then the announcement of the recovery of an unidentified plane crash sets off a chain of events that will lead Ben to question everything he thought he knew . .   Continue reading “September 2018 Book Haul!”

ARCs & Finished Copies from Publishers/Authors:


Title: City of Ghosts by Victoria Schwab

I WON A COMPETITION RAN BY VICTORIA AND MANAGED TO GET AN ARC OF THIS. IS THIS REAL LIFE???? I am still not okay after this, it is BEAUTIFUL.

Synopsis: Ever since Cass almost drowned (okay, she did drown, but she doesn’t like to think about it), she can pull back the Veil that separates the living from the dead . . . and enter the world of spirits. Her best friend is even a ghost. So things are already pretty strange. But they’re about to get much stranger. When Cass’s parents start hosting a TV show about the world’s most haunted places, the family heads off to Edinburgh, Scotland. Here, graveyards, castles, and secret passageways teem with restless phantoms. And when Cass meets a girl who shares her “gift,” she realizes how much she still has to learn about the Veil — and herself. And she’ll have to learn fast. The city of ghosts is more dangerous than she ever imagined. Continue reading “June 2018 Book Haul!”

Title: Warlock Holmes: My Grave Ritual by G. S. Denning

This isn’t technically an ARC as the author sent me a signed finished copy of it and it means the world to me! I absolutely love this series, and I couldn’t be happier to have this book in my hands – I will be reading it so soon!

Synopsis: As they blunder towards doom, Warlock Holmes and Dr. John Watson find themselves inconvenienced by a variety of eldritch beings. Christmas brings a goose that doesn’t let being cooked slow it down; they meet an electricity demon, discover why being a redhead is even tricker than one might imagine, and Holmes attempts an Irish accent. And, naturally, Moriarty is hanging around… in some form or other.

Daughter of the Burning City by Amanda Foody // Review


Title: Daughter of the Burning City by Amanda Foody

Rating: ★★★★.5

Release: 25th July 2017

Synopsis: Even among the many unusual members of the travelling circus that has always been her home sixteen-yea-old Sorina stands apart as the only illusion-worker born in hundreds of years. This rare talent allows her to create illusions that others can see, feel and touch, with personalities all of their own. Her creations are her family, and together they make up the cast of the Festival’s Freak Show. But no matter how lifelike they may seem, her illusions are still just that―illusions, and not truly real. Or so she always believed…until one of them is murdered. Now she must unravel the horrifying truth before all her loved ones disappear.divider-2461548_1280

A trip the circus has never seemed so dangerous, a fantastic story with a world you want to jump right into even with the dangers!
