Ok, that title is shit, there is no debate. It rhymed in my head and so I had to use it as a title. Anyways, my old ass recently ventured onto tiktok, and well, it’s a lot. But I found a whole bookish community on there and I was so excited. I’ve mostly come across romance readers on there, so if you are on there and rec fantasy, please let me know.
And now to the point of this. I found that a lot of the same books are being talked about again and again. It seems everyone is into the same 5-10 dark romance/smutty books. As someone who is a big fan of romance with a heavy dash of fairy porn, I wondered why I had missed all these books. I’m using June to explore and talk about all the romance that are being recommended on TikTok. So if you aren’t a fan of romance, skip most of my posts this month.

Every Thursday I’m going to focus on a book that I’ve read and enjoyed, but for whatever reason I haven’t written a review for it. I would say I only review a third or so of what I read, so I’m glad I’ve finally organised a place to rave about the books I missed and maybe twist someone’s arm into finding their next favourite book.
The Reckless Afterlife of Harriet Stoker by Lauren James

4 self-published fantasy books that are calling my name.
My tbr is a mammoth thing, it has taken on a life of it’s own and if I hadn’t started reading on my kindle, it would have probably filled my house and suffocated me. I don’t let that stop me though, I add to my book collection way to often. So I thought I would give you a look at the books I’m hoping to add to my collection soon. Continue reading “What I’ll be adding to the TBR next…”

Should I be requesting more books from NetGalley… No. Do I anyway… Yes. Last I checked my % was at 52, so I never expect to get accepted, but I love it when it happens.

Synopsis – With the help of his commanding officer, a genetically engineered ex-soldier fights back against the government that created him and others like him to be expendable slaves.
Release date – 10th November 2020

I have had the most amazing run of middle grade fantasy books lately and it continues with The Ship of Shadows. The Write Reads brings us another Ultimate Blog Tour and I had an absolute blast.
“This ship was crafted with the fabric of legends,” Captain Quint had told her when Aleja had asked how it was all possible… “When something is immortalized in stories, it gives it an air of enchantment, I find.” She peered closer at Aleja then, a nearby lantern flashing light on her face in odd patterns. “Every legend you hear about the Ship of Shadows is true. It’s magic is fed by them…”
Pirates, lost treasure, pirate hunters and a kickass sisterhood… Can I get a hell yeah. This book promises adventure and delivers every step of the way. Continue reading “The Ship of Shadows by Maria Kuzniar”
