Favourite Review

Meaghan @ Hail & Well Read – The Bone Maker by Sarah Beth Durst

I will admit I was wary about picking this book up, but honestly after reading Meaghan’s review I added this one to my TBR so fast! I love books that focus on what happens after the hero has saved the world and add in necromancy, a banter filled cast and romance and I’m hooked! I love the layout of Meaghan’s review and can’t wait to get my hands on a copy of the book.

“If you’ve ever enjoyed Gideon the Ninth or any story with a hopeful, happy ending (or if you like both, both is good), then The Bone Maker might be for you! Between its fascinating applications of necromancy, its charming and full-hearted characters, and a big bad worth the big showdown, I can’t recommend it enough. “

Favourite Tag/Meme

Kimberly @ My Bookish Bliss – The 20 Questions Book Tag

Kimberly is such a lovely member of the bookish community & I really enjoyed reading her answers to this tag! These kind of posts always give us such a great insight into the blogger & I always enjoy reading them.

4. Favourite book?

So easy! My favourite book is Sense and Sensibility by Jane Austen. This book was my first foray into classical literature and I have loved it ever since. I couldn’t imagine a world where Sense and Sensibility didn’t exist.”

Favourite General Bookish

Jodie @ Witty & Sarcastic Book Club – The Tropening: Book Tropes that I love (or hate)

Jodie is a favourite blogger of mine & a really supportive member of the blogging community. I just love how she uses this post to highlight some of her favourite, or not so favourite tropes & talks about how, if done well some can absolutely make or break a book. I agree with so many of her opinions & had a lot of fun reading this post.

“I’m immortal!“- Authors spend a ton of time on their characters, so of course it’s hard to say goodbye. However, when a character is being constantly put into situations that they shouldn’t survive, and they survive anyway, it lessens the stakes of a book.”
