I loved The Heart Of Stone, it’s a heart-wrenching book that just punches you in the face with brutality and feels, plus world building and characters that suck you right in. The hardest part about finishing THOS was the devastation of leaving Lesky and Task. I’m pretty sure in my review, which you can find HERE, I said that I hoped at some point Galley would write more in this world.

Fantasy has been spoiling me lately with some fantastic books and Silverlegs by Camilla Monk is another top notch read. (How badass is the title and cover by the way!!)

A weekly post where I can brag about my new books? Yes please. Granted I definitely won’t have something to post every week, I’ll just do it as required. I will be including everything from my purchases, to NetGalley, gifts and books from authors.
