ARC Review // The Deck of Omens by Christine Lynn Herman

ARC Review // The Deck of Omens by Christine Lynn Herman

The teenagers of Four Paths must save their home, in the sequel to hit fantasy The Devouring Gray. For fans of Stranger Things, Riverdale and The Raven Cycle

Though the Beast is seemingly subdued for now, a new threat looms in Four Paths: a corruption seeping from the Gray into the forest. And with the other Founders preoccupied by their tangled alliances and fraying relationships, only May Hawthorne seems to realize the danger. But saving the town she loves means seeking aid from the person her family despises most–her and Justin’s father.

May’s father isn’t the only newcomer in town–Isaac Sullivan’s older brother has also returned, seeking forgiveness for the role he played in Isaac’s troubled past. But Isaac isn’t ready to let go of his family’s history, especially when that history might hold the key that he and Violet Saunders need to destroy the Gray and the monster within it.

Harper Carlisle isn’t ready to forgive, either. Two devastating betrayals have left her isolated from her family and uncertain who to trust. As the corruption becomes impossible to ignore, Harper must learn to control her newfound powers in order to protect Four Paths. But the only people who can help her do that are the ones who have hurt her the most.

With the veil between the Gray and the town growing ever thinner, all of the Founder descendants must put their grievances with one another aside to stop the corruption and kill the Beast once and for all.

But maybe the monster they truly need to slay has never been the Beast…

Thanks to Titan Books for sending me an early proof copy to review!

Recommended Books by Black Authors Part 1 (and books on my tbr)

Untitled-2

This was a series I was planning on starting later on in the year but due to recent events, I’ve boosted it up to now. Despite making it my mission to read more diversely this year, I have still fallen short on reading too many books by Black authors but I am determined for that to change. Below I have chosen some books by Black authors that I have read and loved and also some that I want to read fairly soon. This series will become a regular feature on the blog and I hope you all make it your mission also to read and support these authors.

My Mini ‘Wayward Children’ by Seanan McGuire Series Reviews

Untitled_Panorama1

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!

MOST ANTICIPATED April 2020 YA RELEASES (Belated Edition)

Untitled-1

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!

Mini Reviews // End of Book Slump Edition

Untitled_Panorama1

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

Hi guys!
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!
