If I am being completely honest, this book was a little bit of a disappointment. I would still definitely say that it was overall an enjoyable read, but it didn't stand out to me. When I first read The Devouring Gray last year I loved it, but found it didn't stick with me, and so I had to reread it before reading this book. The Devouring Gray wasn't quite as enjoyable on a second read as I think a lot of my enjoyment was reliant on the mystery and I already knew how it ended. This feeling carried over into my reading experience of The Deck of Omens, but as I said it was still a good and fun read as a whole.
[ARC] ‘Burn’ – Patrick Ness
I am so glad that I got to read this book. Right from the off this book was extremely promising, dragons, a prophecy, a teenage assassin, and so many secrets! And overall, it was a thoroughly enjoyable book, I was completely engaged from the beginning all the way through.
I am so happy with what I managed to read in April, reading a series I've been meaning to read for years, some new releases and some ARCs that I need to review!

I thought I would share a little post with you about what music means to me, and some of my favourite artists and songs! Music is a central and very important aspect of this book so I thought it would be a nice theme to choose for this post.

[ARC] ‘Shadowscent: The Darkest Bloom’ – P.M. Freestone
This was such a fun debut fantasy novel, and I am so glad I got to read it early and now share it with all of you! I was amazed at how this book didn't read like a debut at all, and I am very excited to see what else P.M. Freestone releases in the future, both as a continuation of this series and beyond.
January Wrap-Up & February TBR
So January was definitely not the most successful reading month for me! I got into a massive slump at the beginning of the month where I picked up and then put down about 4 books before finding anything I wanted to stick with!
