[ARC] ‘The Deck of Omens’ – Christine Lynn Herman

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.

December Wrap-Up & January TBR

December was a great reading month!! It didn't start out too well because I was very busy at university so couldn't read too much, but in the last two weeks of the month I was able to read loads, and it has been one of my best reading months of the year.

‘A Blade So Black’ – L. L. McKinney

This book was an interesting reading experience. I was so excited to read this, it sounded fascinating and original and exactly like the kind of book I should love but something about it just didn't work for me. I think the story was still quite interesting, although not what I had hoped, but the main downfall was in the execution of this novel.

October Wrap-Up & November TBR

Somehow, this has actually been quite a successful reading month! As I started back at Uni this month I thought I would be very limited in how much time I would have to read, and I kind of was but I still managed to make quite a lot of time and get through quite a few books, with a grand total of 8!

[ARC] ‘Muse of Nightmares’ – Laini Taylor

I am absolutely in love with this book! It is by far the best book I have read so far this year and I highly doubt it will be beaten for quite some time! Laini Taylor has created a true masterpiece with this duology and I am already extremely excited for when I shave the time to reread this series! Somehow this book was actually better than Strange the Dreamer which I didn't think would be possible, but as always Laini Taylor came out and surprised me with another stunning novel.

‘Vicious’ – V. E. Schwab

Wow! There is no other way to start this review that would fully sum up my love for this book. This is the third V.E. Schwab book I read and honestly it was extraordinary. The premise was absolutely fascinating, the characters were amazing and I just adored this book so much. I cannot wait to read Vengeful which is being released later this month (25th September 2018), I am so ready to be back in this amazing world!
