Ninth House by Leigh Bardugo: a review

I’ve been battling with myself whether I felt like writing a review for Ninth House or not. Normally I only write reviews for new books, or ARCs, but I really want to write more about what I actually read. Reviews are fun to do after all! So let’s dive into what I thought of Ninth House.

Review: Salvaged by Madeleine Roux

It’s been a hot second since I reviewed anything, so when I got contacted to review what sounded like a very promising sci-fi book, I obviously said yes.

July wrap up

It’s time for another wrap up post! I think I actually set a new record for myself. I read eight books this month, and normally I struggle to read three. I even read a bigger book of 800 pages! There was also definitely a theme to my reading… Four books were science fiction! Ash Princess – Laura Sebastian ★★★☆☆ I started the month with Ash Princess. I got the book at my local library. Our YA section is actually really well stocked, so that’s really exciting! The prompt seemed really interesting to me, and I was entertained throughout most of…
