The Muse

 

I received The Muse in exchange for an honest review

It’s inevitable that Jessie Burton’s new novel, The Muse, will be compared wth her smash-hit debut, The Miniaturist. And I seem to be in the minority in thinking that this novel is better than her first. It’s certainly cemented Jessie Burton as my my current favourite historical fiction writer. The Muse effortlessly brings to life other eras, cultures and life-like, three-dimensional characters, all wrapped in up luscious descriptions and a gripping plot which had me completely hooked. Not to mention, another stunner of a cover too.

Beside Myself

 

I was approved Beside Myself by Ann Morgan on NetGalley, and was quite excited to start reading, and I must say it did not disappoint! An interesting storyline concept written exquisitely well!

The Pillars of Natura – Book Review

The Pillars of Natura

 

I was contacted by the author of this book and sent a review copy in exchange for a honest review.

I must say I was a little apprehensive about this book. I had never heard anything about this author or the book. As I started reading I thought I may have made a mistake in agreeing to do a review.

It started kinda slow and I was having a hard time getting into the book. Before long that all changed and I was totally enthralled and wanting more. This book starts the story of Raine and Rennick Sherrill, twins that find out they have some great powers and maybe even a greater destiny than they could ever imagine.

Extraordinary Means

 

Title: Extraordinary Means

Author: Robyn Schneider

Publisher: Katherine Tegen Books

Publication date: May 26, 2015

Goodreads / Author’s website / Author’s twitter

I picked this book up purely because the cover font and color scheme was gorgeous. I am a shallow person when it comes to book covers catching my eye. The fact that this was somewhat alternate-universe and slightly speculative, along with being a YA romantic dark comedy of sorts was secondary. But I’m glad that’s what it ended up being about!
