Thank you to @penguinbooksya for sending me a copy of this book. (and some other goodies) I have been wanting to read this since I've first seen the synopsis on Goodreads. This beautiful cover binds a powerful story of a world where girls are outcasts by blood and warriors by choice. This West African inspired fantasy series … Continue reading The Gilded Ones
Chain of Iron by @cassieclare1 (#gifted@panmacmillansakids ) has been one of my must reads since I've finished Chain of Gold last year. I have fallen in love with this story world and it's old - timey feel, fantastical quotes and it's mind churning plot twists. This is a fandom that has completely swept me up! I wasn't the … Continue reading Chain of Iron

I love to escape in a book. And I adore books that can completely remove me from reality. Thus my love for Fantasy Novels. After a year of amazing reads paranoia tends to kick, nagging in the back of your mind that your next read might not be so great, or might completely disappoint. I … Continue reading Sorcery of Thorns
My friend and I had an enlightening conversation on Historical Fiction and the significance of telling stories. My conclusion was that just because the significant event was horrible does not mean there was no room for beauty, love and self discovery. In my opinion, the hope that exists in those dark moments through love and beauty, often help us survive these horrible events, and inspire us to do better, to live better and to love better.
There is something completely magical about Historical Fantasy Fiction. And this cover, as beautiful as it is, did not do this book justice. So excuse me while I pack my bags to get whisked away to 1789, Paris in a hot air balloon. (Completely ignoring my fear of heights.)
Humming the intro of Aladdin in my head I reach for this novel, high expectations and coffee in the hand I settle in to travel to one of the world's richest places (both in culture and magic) in this highly anticipated debut of 2019.
