Five Star Book…

I’ve already gone on and on about how much I adored Shelby Mahurin’s debut fantasy romance book Serpent & Dove. (So a little more won’t hurt, right?) But this enemies to lovers romance between a witch and a witch hunter is still my reigning favourite fantasy romance book at the moment. Lou and Reid’s enemies to lovers dynamic has the most delicious banter, that also had me laughing because of Lou’s crass nature. Definitely for readers who don’t mind their romance overshadowing fantasy.

Always going to recommend…

Into the Drowning Deep is one of my all time favourite books for its incredibly tense and horrifying atmospheric experience. It is essentially Jurassic Park meets Mermaids and honestly, that’s the only selling point I needed to get me to pick this up. Don’t wait for the thriller season to read this book, this biomedical horror is good all year round. With themes of environmentalism and sensationalism present through the story, it really elevated this thriller for me. It’s also incredibly diverse if that buzzword piques your interest.

Own it but haven’t read it yet…

In 2019, I went to a second hand store and bought all the published books in the A Song of Ice and Fire series. I have to say I’m pretty impressed I read at least three of the books last year, which means I’m halfway through the series (or whats published so far.) 2020 is the year I catch up on all the remaining books, starting with A Storm of Swords Part II. Even though I must say, I can’t remember what happened in part I…

Would read again…

I would pick up Six of Crows for a lot of different reasons: the clever plotting of the impossible heist, the world-building, incredible character work and deliciously angsty romances… but would be lying if I said it wasn’t mainly Nina goddamn Zenik, my favourite waffle loving witch. Given that Netflix is adapting the show and I’ve already re-listened to The Grisha Trilogy, it’s inevitable that I’ll pick this duology up again before it comes out!

In another world…

Come Tumbling Down is a recent release but is so near and dear to my heart because it has such an amazing cast of characters, including a plus size lead (who also happens to be a mermaid). This series is a portal fantasy series, so half the fun of these books is going on adventures with these characters to their world. Some odd, dark, loveable and just nonsensical. Jack and Jill’s horrifying world of The Moors is still my favourite, which we get to revisit in this book and explore even more about the world and the dark creatures that exist within it.

Back on Earth…

Jurassic Park is still one of the best audiobook experiences I’ve listened too. No one who likes the movie franchise and innocently picks up the book expects all the scientific and technical jargon that comes with this book. But the audiobook relieved me from all of that tiring jargon. Instead it elevates the story and the narrator (Scott Brick) did an amazing job at creating a tense and horrifying atmosphere with his detail to the characters voices and tones.
