Hot Ash and the Oasis Defect – Book Review

Overall Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ “All the grief that made her want to squeeze her eyes and weld them shut forever was being redirected into the molten core of her soul.” I was very pleasantly surprised with this one! After reading an intriguing blurb about a hi-tech future, women rulers and a killer on the loose, I…

Vanishing Hour – Book Review

Overall rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ “Matthew hated Tuesday’s the most. At least he used to. Until the Tuesday that changed everything.” I’m a sucker for a good character and I also (secretly) enjoy a bit of an emotional read. This book was far better than I could have possibly imagined and it combined all my favourite elements into…

Monica With A ‘K’ Saves The World – Book Review

Overall Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐ “It was a race to dominate planets and win their resources.” Having only read this author’s memoir so far, I was really keen to see how good his fictional work was in comparison. It was rather strange comparing an author’s talent for writing with a real life story and a fictional story,…

The Latecomers – Book Review

Overall rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ “If this sign is carried, one will never lose one’s way in storms or bad weather, even when the way is not known.” This book took me longer than I expected to finish – not because it was boring, uninteresting or didn’t capture my attention, but for the exact opposite reasons. I…

Duncan Versus the Googleys – Book Review

Overall rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐ “It is only fair to warn you, before we go much further, that so much in this story is upside down, backwards, twisted, devious or just downright peculiar.” Seeing as a lot of us have risen to the challenge of homeschooling their little ones in these uncertain and downright scary times, I…

Salt + Stilettos – Book Review

Overall Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ “It’s not about responsibility and burdens and obligations. It’s about you.” Following the success of the first blog tour I took part in, I instantly jumped at the chance to be involved in the next! It’s been a while since I read a good romance, so when this particular book cropped up,…

Dandelion Seeds – Book Review

Overall Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ My first review of a collection of short stories!

I really liked how different this was for me and how many stories I’ve enjoyed…

The Final Lesson – Book Review

Overall Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ “One day, I’ll be a Warlord. But right now, we’re both amateurs in the field of magic.” This one has been on my TBR list for so long and I am so happy to finally be sharing my review! Not only was it such an involving, exciting read, but it has also…

Periphery – Book Review

“From the corner of your eye to the focus of your fear.” You know that feeling you get when you read a book a think, ‘Wow, this is something else’? That was my exact thought when I finished the first chapter of this one! This book is one of the best indie books I’ve read…

The Marshal – Book Review

“The world of old is no more.” To put it quite simply, I absolutely loved this book! Who’d have thought that me and a post-apocalyptic western would get along… I was totally surprised with how well this story captured my interest and kept it there throughout the whole thing. Here’s a smashing review for you…
