Favourite Review!

Marta @ Monogamist Reader – Arc Review: A Dark and Hollow Star by Ashley Shuttleworth

I love that Marta basically started off this review by saying it was going to be cliche filled because of how much she loved the book, something I think a lot of book bloggers can relate to! Despite the slow start this soon became a 5* read for it, and having an ARC myself I’m now incredibly excited to get round to reading it.

I truly enjoyed every aspect of this story, the plot and the character, and I can’t wait for the sequel. I think it’s darker, grittier and more mature than City of Bones and on the topic, I would add that I strongly recommend checking the content/trigger warnings first, because this book explores a wide range of tough issues. 

Favourite Tag/Meme

Sammie @ The Bookwyrms Den – Tag Thursday  || Characters of the year tag (2020 edition)

I love Sammie’s blog! She creates some brilliant content and I never get enough of reading her reviews. I hadn’t seen this tag before, but I will definitely be stealing it now, she talks about her favourite characters from last years reads whilst also giving us some brilliant book recommendations at the same time… I’ve already added most of them to my TBR.

“Love them, hate them, fantasize about running off with them … doesn’t matter, as long as I feel something for them. Feeling means caring about them in some way. So let’s take some time to appreciate all the great characters 2020 has brought us!”

Favourite Bookish Post

Amber @ Bibliomavens – 5 Fantasy tropes with Book Recommendations

Bloggers talk about loving and hating tropes so often, but what I love about Ambers post is that she gives us a list of brilliant tropes as well as highlighting some amazing sounding books that contain them. So many of the books she lists are on my TBR, and I’ve already gone through and added the rest!

“Or, as quoted by Bilbo Baggins, ‘going on an adventure’. The quest trope is a classic and has been used so many times in fantasy novels over the years. A quest is when the characters set out on a journey in search of a specific goal. Rather it’s a crew of outcasts crossing mountains and deserts to find a magical item, or the chosen one crossing a country to destroy a magical item, a quest is always a fun journey to take in a book.”
