Last Year I Was Reading… 💫 #8 📚 Blogtober #29

So, I’m joining a weekly feature that is kind of like a Throwback Thursday! Last Year I Was Reading… was created by ReadingMaria!

Take your current read and compare it to what you reading this exact time last year. Which one do you like better? What is different about the books? Any special facts/things you want to make note of or bring attention to? Be sure to link it back to my blog so I can see them!

This Year I Am Reading…

Queen of Volts by Amanda Foody

I’m currently about 70 pages into Queen of Volts and loving being back in this world. This is book 3 to Ace of Shades which I LOVED so this is a highly anticipated read! I will be sad to finish this one and end this series but I also can’t wait to see what goes down in this one!

Last Year I Was Reading…

Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban by J.K. Rowling

I actually wasn’t reading anything this time last year but I finished the audiobook for Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban the day before, so close enough for me. Of course I love Harry Potter!


Argh how can I compared when I’m comparing to Harry Potter!? I’m going to have to give it to HP as it’s just amazing and also I’m only 70 pages into Queen of Volts which is a 600 page book so we are still setting up and just starting to get into the action. So as of my current point in Queen of Volts compared to Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban as a whole it just can’t compare unfortunately. I do highly recommend checking out Ace of Shades though if you haven’t already!

Let’s Chat!

What were you reading this time last year? Did you love it?

The Inheritance Games 💫 Spoiler Free Review 📚 Blogtober #28

Title: The Inheritance Games
Series Name: The Inheritance Games
Author: Jennifer Lynn Barnes
Genre: YA Mystery
Publication Date: September 1st, 2020
Pages: 384
Publishers: Little, Brown Books for Young Readers
Rating:

Goodreads Synopsis

A Cinderella story with deadly stakes and thrilling twists, perfect for fans of One of Us is Lying and Knives Out.

Avery Grambs has a plan for a better future: survive high school, win a scholarship, and get out. But her fortunes change in an instant when billionaire Tobias Hawthorne dies and leaves Avery virtually his entire fortune. The catch? Avery has no idea why–or even who Tobias Hawthorne is. To receive her inheritance, Avery must move into sprawling, secret passage-filled Hawthorne House, where every room bears the old man’s touch–and his love of puzzles, riddles, and codes.

Unfortunately for Avery, Hawthorne House is also occupied by the family that Tobias Hawthorne just dispossessed. This includes the four Hawthorne grandsons: dangerous, magnetic, brilliant boys who grew up with every expectation that one day, they would inherit billions. Heir apparent Grayson Hawthorne is convinced that Avery must be a con-woman, and he’s determined to take her down. His brother, Jameson, views her as their grandfather’s last hurrah: a twisted riddle, a puzzle to be solved. Caught in a world of wealth and privilege, with danger around every turn, Avery will have to play the game herself just to survive.

This one was a very pleasant surprise as there has been very little talk about it & I had no idea what to expect.

The Inheritance Games was a very mysterious & unpredictable story. It was gripping & I found myself not wanting to stop listening. It was very addictive actually, even if I could only listen to 3 minutes of it in between other thinks I found myself putting it on when I usually wouldn’t. So that tells me that I was enjoying it!

All the characters were very realistic and nearly all had a backstory and depth put into them. I like that you also saw the characters developing & showing more of themselves throughout as Avery got to know them. I also like how different the 4 boys are. The author could have gave them all the same qualities but every one was unique & interesting in their own way.

I also loved how atmospheric the book was. I loved learning about the house & surrounds as it really built a picture & set the scene. The authors writing when it came to explaining things definitely helped in engrossing you in the story and being invested in the characters.

Overall I really enjoyed The Inheritance Game and more than I thought I would as I simply didn’t know what to expect as I have heard basically no one talking about this. This is book 1 in a duology, so I’m loving that as duologys are hard to find. I’m very keen to see what will happen next!

Top Ten Tuesday 💫 New Releases with spooky covers 📚 Blogtober #27

Yes, I am jumping back on the Top Ten Tuesday band wagon but it may not be every week. I’m just planning on jumping in when I enjoy the prompt of the week. So these will be pretty random.

Top Ten Tuesday is a monthly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish but now lives at The Artsy Reader Girl and you can find all the info and upcoming prompts Here.

Prompt: Halloween Freebie


So these will not necessarily be halloweeny books. I’m Aussie & don’t really celebrate Halloween besides using it as an excuse to dress up once a year & go to the pub. It’s also not ‘Fall’ here. It’s currently Spring, so those Fall/Halloween vibes just aren’t there for me really. So instead of doing a list of Halloween related or Halloween feeling books I thought I would just show off 10 books that have recently released/upcoming releases that have spooky/creepy covers


1. The Desolations of Devil’s Acre by Ransom Riggs

This one isn’t set to releases until Feb 2021 but I had to include it as the cover released a couple hours ago & it’s definitely creepy!

2. Burn Our Bodies Down by Rory Power

Burn Our Bodies Down releases in July & this is Rory Power’s second book. I read Wilder Girls last year & I wasn’t impressed so hopefully this one is better!

3. Hemlock by Rue Volley

I have never heard of this book & know nothing about it but the cover definitely gives off eerie vibes! It is marketed as romance but I don’t think I’ll be adding it to my TBR. Released in August.

4. Clown in a Cornfield by Adam Cesare

Clown in a Cornfield released in August & I read it last week & really enjoyed it. It’s a pretty simple slasher style horror & it made for a fun read.

5. Some King of Twisted Love by Rachel Sullivan

This is another one I had never heard of but I love the creepy vibes that the cover gives off. I’m actually planning on going as a siren for Halloween at the pub, so this is perfect.

6. Horrid by Katrina Leno

Horrid is not one that’s on my TBR but I have heard of it. I received a copy in a Subscription boxes earlier in the month and have already sold it as it just doesn’t sound up my alley. The cover is definitely creepy though.

7. The Reckless Afterlife of Harriet Stoker by Lauren James

The Reckless Afterlife of Harriet Stoker is another one that I hadn’t heard of before making this list but it actually sounds really intriguing, so I have added it to my TBR!

8. Even if We Break by Marieke Nijkamp

Even If We Break released in September I read it in September. It was really good & super creepy and the masks on this cover are also creepy!

9. This is Not a Ghost Story by Andrea Portes

Another one I’m adding to my TBR thanks to this list! This is Not a Ghost Story releases in November, so it should have been included in my November Anticipated Releases but I didn’t know it existed yesterday when I wrote that post.

10. Don’t Tell a Soul by Kirsten Miller

Yet another I hadn’t heard of before but at least I have heard of the author. I read & DNFd the book that Kirsten Miller releases with Jason Segel, Otherworld.

Let’s Chat!

What creepy covered books do you have on your TBR?

Blogtober 2020 Monthly Releases

November Anticipated Releases 📚 Blogtober #26

This will be a short one as there is only 4 books I’m looking forward to that are releasing in November. I feel like the releases have kinda slowed down in November & December as there is very few I’m interested in!

November 3rd

The Ravens by Kass Morgan & Danielle Paige

The Ravens is a YA Fantasy that features a sorority that is actually a secret coven of witches. This one sounds fascinating & while I haven’t read anything by Danielle Paige I have always been curious about the Dorothy Must Die series. As for Kass Morgan, I have enjoyed what I’ve read so far, so hopefully this one will also be good!

November 10th

Rebel Rose by Emma Theriault

Rebel Rose is a YA Historical Fantasy Retelling of Beauty and the Beast. This one is apparently based on the real story behind Beauty and the Beast which makes me very curious! I love a good retelling, so I’m keen for this one.

Those Who Prey by Jennifer Moffett

I’ve been in a huge YA Thriller/Mystery mood so I am keen to get to Those Who Prey which is a psychological thriller. This is about a college freshman who is seduced into joining a cult & is then trying to escape it.

November 17th

These Violent Delights by Chloe Gong

These Violent Delights is another YA Historical Retelling but this one is based on Romeo & Juliet but set in 1920’s Shanghai. While Romeo & Juliet is romance it doesn’t sound like These Violent Delights is too romance heavy, so that makes me super keen!

Let’s Chat!

What books are you most looking forward to that’s releasing in November?

The Tea Dragon Tapestry 💫 Spoiler Free Review 📚 Blogtober #25

Title: The Tea Dragon Tapestry
Series Name: Tea Dragon
Author: Katie O’Neill
Genre: MG Fantasy
Publication Date: June 1st, 2021
Pages: 128
Publishers: Oni Press
Rating:

5 Stars

Goodreads Synopsis

Join Greta and Minette once more for the heartwarming conclusion of the award-winning Tea Dragon series!

Over a year since being entrusted with Ginseng’s care, Greta still can’t chase away the cloud of mourning that hangs over the timid Tea Dragon. As she struggles to create something spectacular enough to impress a master blacksmith in search of an apprentice, she questions the true meaning of crafting, and the true meaning of caring for someone in grief. Meanwhile, Minette receives a surprise package from the monastery where she was once training to be a prophetess. Thrown into confusion about her path in life, the shy and reserved Minette finds that the more she opens her heart to others, the more clearly she can see what was always inside.

Told with the same care and charm as the previous installments of the Tea Dragon series, The Tea Dragon Tapestry welcomes old friends and new into a heartfelt story of purpose, love, and growth.

The Tea Dragon Society: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Spoiler Free Review
The Tea Dragon Festival: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Spoiler Free Review
The Te Dragon Tapestry: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

The Tea Dragon series is just so cute! It is an overall wholesome & enjoyable read that always leaves me feeling better after reading them!

I loved that we learned more about Minette & their back story in this book. That was something that I wanted more of in book 1 so that was a nice surprise. We also got to see most of the characters from The Tea Dragon Society & The Tea Dragon Festival come back in The Tea Dragon Tapestry which was awesome. They are also amazing & such well developed characters so it was nice to see them all again.

I also love that all of the books have an amazing story to tell and all have a message to teach the reader. The Tea Dragon Tapestry features a beautiful message involving grief and the importance of small gestures.

Overall I love these books & I will definitely be rereading them! I wish there was more but The Tea Dragon Tapestry was the conclusion. It is amazingly wrapped up but I would be totally happy to read another 10 books based on these adorable tiny dragons! I highly recommend checking out this series if you need something wholesome and feel good to read!

Graphic Novels still on my TBR! 📚 Blogtober #23

I was hoping to read a lot more during Graphics-A-Thon but I just didn’t have the time with work. So I thought I would talk about the Graphic Novels/Manga’s that are still on my TBR!

1. Wicked Things by John Allison & Max Sarin

This is a YA detective Graphic Novel which sounds super fun! There is only this single volume so will be a quick & easy read hopefully.

2. Slam! by Pamela Ribon & Veronica Fish

I feel like I read more sports based Graphic Novels than I ever would sports related books! This is one of them. Slam! is based around Roller Derby and has just the two volumes so another quick & fun read by the sounds of it.

3. Brave Chef Brianna by Sam Sykes & Selina Espiritu

Another single volume graphic novel! This one I honestly know nothing about but I’m guessing it involves cooking and the cover just looks so interesting.

4. Hex Vet by Sam Davies

A two volume graphic novel series about a vet that specialised in magical creatures? I’m in!

5. By Night by John Allison & Christine Larson

This one is a 3 volume fantasy graphic novel that sounds super interesting!

6. B.B. Free by Gabby Rivera, Kieran Quigley & Royal Dunlap

Volume 1 of B.B. Free is currently out but Volume 2 doesn’t release until next year! So I will probably hold off and read this one closer to the release of Volume 2 so I can read them both together! Either way I am super interested in this one and it sounds like it has amazing diversity!

7. Bee and PuppyCat by Natasha Allegri

I have no idea what this is about but it looks hilarious and it’s fantasy, so I’m in.

8. Something is Killing the Children by James Tynion IV, Werther Dell’Edera & Miguel Muetro

I want to get more into horror graphic novels & try and convince my partner to read them with. me seen as he likes horror but doesn’t love reading. I feel like a horror graphic novel is the perfect middle ground!

9. Ghosted in L.A. by Sina Grace, Siobhan Keenan & Cathy Le

This is another one I will probably wait to read as Volume 3 comes out in December. So I will wait till then and then read all 3.

10. Basically everything Junji Ito

I’ve read one bind of Junji Ito stories so far and that was Frankenstein and it was very interesting. So I’m keen to read more by this author. I have featured Gyo, Uzumaki & Tomie as they are the ones I most hear talked about but there is others by the author that interests me as well.

11. Check, Please! by Ngozi Ukazu

This one is talked about so much and I’m so curious to get to it! It sounds cute and so much fun so I’m keen!

12. Brightly Woven by Alexandra Bracken, Leigh Dragoon & Kit Seaton

Brightly Woven is based on Alexandra Bracken’s debut novel, which I personally haven’t read but I love Alexandra Bracken’s The Darkest Minds series so I’m keen to get to this one!

Let’s Chat!

Are there any other Graphical Novels that I should have on my radar?

This Year I Am Reading…

The Inheritaance Games by Jennifer Lynn Barnes

I’ve just finished The Inheritance Games today and it was amazing! Listened to the whole thine in 24 hour period and I had so much fun! I loved mystery aspect & it was very gripping and I didn’t want to put it down!

Last Year I Was Reading…

Pumpkinheads by Rainbow Rowell & Faith Erin Hicks

I loved Pumpkinheads and was thinking of rereading it this October! It’s such a fun Graphic Novel and super quick. This is just one of those feel good books but with a hint of autumn (fall). The illustrations are also amazing.


This is a hard one to compare as they are just so different but I think I’m going to go for The Inheritance Games. Both are really good books in their own right but I think I love the mysterious aspect of The Inheritance Games a little more! Highly recommend both though!

The Tea Dragon Society: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Spoiler Free Review
The Tea Dragon Festival: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
The Tea Dragon Tapestry: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Spoiler Free Review to come

These books are just AMAZING!

Just because something comes easily to you, does not mean it has no value.

Firstly the diversity is amazing! This one is set well before the events in The Tea Dragon Society and does not focus on the same characters or location. So we have new diversity being featured including someone who is deaf. I love that the the book features sign language in this one! The author didn’t have to include the actual sign langugae & translation but she did it so smoothly that it just works naturally and that amazing.

I love the messages that are portrayed in this graphic novel series. It doesn’t come across as a motivational kind of book but that is really how it feels sometimes. The author always includes some message that makes you think and that can relate to the real world.

I enjoyed learning about a new species in this one as well as we meet a full size dragon. The world is always being expanded and it feels very well developed and explained even though the books are under 150 pages each.

Of course I have to mention the artwork as it’s gorgeous and so colourful! I’d love to get some of those chapter headings as stickers or something as they are just beautiful!

Overall I really enjoyed The Tea Dragon Festival! The books are gorgeous, feature amazing diversity, always have a really good message & they are just cute and wholesome reads. I highly recommend giving this series a go as I simply can’t fault anything about it!
