Feathertide by Beth Cartwright // Spoiler-free Review

Untitled_Panorama1

Thank you to Penguin Books UK for sending me a copy in exchange for an honest review.

Born covered in the feathers of a bird, and kept hidden in a crumbling house full of secrets, Marea has always known she was different, but never known why. And so to find answers, she goes in search of the father she has never met.

The hunt leads her to the City of Murmurs, a place of mermaids and mystery, where jars of swirling mist are carried through the streets by the broken-hearted.

And Marea will never forget what she learns there.

Can you believe it is that time of the year already? I’ve seen this tag floating around again recently and I had to double check the calendar to make sure I was seeing it right. I haven’t had the most successful book year but I thought I’d grab Becky so we can take part in the annual Mid Year Freak Out book tag for you!

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”
