I’m not normally a huge reader of fantasy but so far this year I’ve dug into Children of Blood and Bone by Tomi Adeyemi and now Girls of Paper and Fire by Nastasha Ngan – both of which I have loved! GOPAF was our Book Club pick for April and I truly adored it. I was unsure how I’d feel but I was so into it and I loved talking about it at Book Club (which I’ll upload a post about on Monday). I read most of this whilst sat in the wonderful weather over the Easter weekend – there’s no better way of spending a hot, sunny day than going for walks in beautiful places and sitting reading a good book outdoors! On with the review…

I picked up a copy of The Witch’s Kiss quite a while ago, thinking that i wouldn’t get around to it any time soon. Admittedly it’s not really my ‘thing’. I’m not a fan of Witches and most of all, i had no idea what this story was actually about. When i saw that Katherine and Elizabeth were announced for YALC this year, i figured i may as well pick it up and see why it seemed so popular last year. I ended up speeding through it.

Everyone (including like your stepmum’s nephews dog) is talking about this book. As Stephanie Garber’s debut novel, a huge hype has surrounded Caraval since last summer when the ARC’s were being handed out to the lucky chosen ones. I tried to get my hands on an ARC at YALC last year, and after being unsuccessful, had to resort to reading it when it was released. But, boy was it worth the wait.

I chose to give out copies of Shadow and Bone as a part of World Book Night 2016. There were a couple of books on the list that I was interested in, however I figured I should go something a little out of my comfort zone. So Shadow and Bone it was. I’d heard a lot of mixed reviews about it, some people were saying it was just an average YA fantasy book, so I was going in effectively blind.

Soundless is the story of a deaf village who live on the top of a mountain, unable to climb down. They rely on trade, they send metals, golds and silvers down the mountain in return for food from the towns below. However one day when the deaf civilianists start to also turn blind, they have no choice but to investigate their food options down below with the town’s people. This job is ultimately down to Fei, the only girl in the village who has regained her hearing.

I’ve eagerly been waiting to read Username: Evie since it’s release in September and I finally got my hands on a copy for Christmas! I rarely buy books written by YouTubers, however i’ve grown a fondness for Joe Sugg and figured at least his book wasn’t a very strangely written self-help/memoir. I was excited to get in to it!

Big Fish was on the list of books I had to read for my adaptation module at university and I was quite excited to start as I had heard so many good things about it and it sounded really different and interesting. However, I was very disappointed.
