Church of Marvels by Leslie Parry
I received an ARC of this book from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
Release date (UK): 2nd June 2015
I was so excited to get my hands on this book, and it really did not disappoint. It has everything; the vibrance of a spectacular Coney Island circus show, the darkness of an isolated women’s asylum and more, tied together in a tangled web of mystery which the talented Leslie Parry gradually unravels.

Red Rising by Pierce Brown.
I read this book immediately after finishing The Name of the Wind (The Kingkiller Chronicle, #1) by Patrick Rothfuss. Admittedly, that’s a tough act to follow. As a reader, I jump genres often so while I have read some sci-fi, I would not consider myself a sci-fi reader. That said, I enjoyed where this book took me and will definitely be looking for the next in the series to come out.

I read Divergent and Insurgent when the books were first released, but when I started Allegiant, I found other books that kind of jumped the queue on my TBR list. I finished The Well and even though I had many books to read, I was stuck. I still had a copy of Allegiant on my bookcase that I had borrowed from my cousin and decided that I should get ’round to reading it, with Insurgent soon to be released in cinemas.

I was very excited for this book, so much so that I pre-ordered it and not-so patently waited for it to come out. I was not disappointed. This follow up to Half A King was a little bit of a surprise in the total shift in protagonist. I was expecting Yarvi to be a larger part of the story. This I thought was going to be a big disappointment; I had grown rather found of the deep, cunning Yarvi. As it turns out, the new characters are awesome, and Yarvi is still around to root for.

The Martian by Andy Weir isn’t lacking for quality reviews on the Internet, so it was a little surprising to find the book was available for a free read in exchange for an honest review on Blogging for Books. Already a New York Times Bestseller, the book really doesn’t need my two cents worth, but I’m happy to oblige.

A Taste of Blood Wine, Freda Warrington
The copy on the front definitely captures a lot about this book. “Throbs with lush romanticism,” says The Times. That’s a perfect description right there.

I love debut fiction, because I really get the author’s passion for the story and the craft of writing while reading the book (most of the time, at least). Debut authors often have nothing to lose, and they have everything to gain, so they put everything into this book. And I definitely saw this passion in Margaret Bradham Thornton’s debut novel, Charleston.
