Sarah Maria Griffin and Christina Henry event – Waterstones Deansgate

The Tuesday before last, following a heavy YALC hangover, I made my way over to Sarah Maria Griffin and Christina Henry’s tour stop in Manchester. I had already met Sarah at YALC but as Spare and Found Parts is one of my favourite books of the year, I definitely wouldn’t say no to hearing her talk about it – I also didn’t get a chance to meet Christina at YALC so was looking forward to that too!

ARC August

ARC August

Hey guys!

Just a quick post today but we have lots of posts planned for the next few weeks (including a YALC wrap up which I’m really excited to put together!)

So, ARC August coincides really well with YALC for me as I have a nice pile of ARCs to get through from it, so I decided to take part this year. I also have a couple that have been sent to me from publishers recently so I’ve included those too.

The ARCs I’m planning on reading this month are:

These Rebel Waves by Sara Raasch (Harper 360)

A Flicker in the Clarity by Amy McNamara (Harper 360)

Sawkill Girls by Claire LeGrande (YALC)

Kingdom of the Blazing Phoenix by Julie C. Dao (YALC)

Damsel by Elaina K Arnold (YALC)

Assuming I get through these five I’ll also try and read The Girl King by Mimi Yu, which I also picked up at YALC. I’m not in a huge rush to read this though since it’s not out till 2019!

Are you taking part in ARC August?
love Becky,

Review: A Court of Frost and Starlight by Sarah J Maas

Review: A Court of Frost and Starlight by Sarah J Maas

So, a couple of weeks ago, the highly anticipated ACOFAS was released, and I definitely got swept up in the hype. I’ve avoided reviewing books from this series, but I’m going to try my best to write up a review for this novella!

note: I will be reviewing this for what it is – a novella bridging the first trilogy to the next set of books set in this world. When ACOFAS was announced, we knew it’d be a novella, not another huge novel – and at 270 pages, it’s still a fairly long novella!

PS. this review WILL contain spoilers for ACOFAS.
