Sorcery of Thorns

By: Margaret Rogerson

She’s happier there than anywhere. She dreams of being Warden one day and as such one rule she must live by- stay away from magic.

Sawkill Girls

By: Claire Legrand

I’ve been on a scare me kick recently and want things along the lines of Stranger Things plus I’ve wanted to read a Claire Legrand for ages (or at least since last year) so I finally picked up Sawkill Girls.

Ship of Smoke and Steel

By: Django Wexler

An enormous and seemingly impossible ship full of sacrifices. Commanded by an unseen Captain and a vicious crew. Guarded by “angels” who won’t let you leave once you board.

Action, violence, love and lust, betrayal and a fight for survival against a series of strange creatures including giant man-eating crabs.

Spinning Silver

By: Naomi Novik

Grade: C

Spinning Silver was one of my most anticipated books of the year and unfortunately, it was a bit of a let-down. I loved Uprooted (the authors last novel) but I think this one could have used another pass at editing.

The Spooky Scary Book Tag

Creepy IT house

I saw the Spooky Scary Book Tag on Youtube and since my Halloween mood has been kind of lacking recently I wanted to give it a go. I also wanted to see if I could get through it without picking Harry Potter for anything. (Fail.)

The original creator of the tag isĀ Clever Fox
