The Poppy War by R.F Kuang *Book Review

This asian inspired historical fiction/ fantasy is really good. It is based on the second sino- Japanese war in the late 1930s to mid 1940s.

I have heard good and bad reviews about this book and for me I can see where those who don’t like it are coming from, but I give this a 4 stars and hoping to enjoy the second one just as much if not more.

January Wrap up 2020

These are the books I read in January and I liked them all but I was a little disappointed in war storm. I tries to read Broken Throne and that was a DNF.

All of these books are 4.5/5 star reads except war storm is a 3.5 star read.

All of these were read by audiobooks through my library on the libby app.

Happy reading!

War storm by Victoria Aveyard ~ book review

This is book four in the Red Queen Series and I have really enjoyed the series up til this book. I just dont feel like much happened in it for as long as it was. It really could have been condensed down.

Being as it is book four I can’t really give any thoughts because if spoilers but if you have read this and want to discuss it then let me know.

I’m giving this book a 3/5 stars. It had a lot more potential but it was lacking something for me.

I will be continuing to Broken Throne next.

Happy reading

Wicked Fox by Kat Cho * Book review

This is an asian inspired fantasy, which I seem to be in the mood for being I just finished one and have another lined up haha.

I cant really explain the book without spoiling it, so I can link goodreads for that.

And I can’t spell the names either ..tbh 🙂

I recommend this book, plus the audiobook is really good.

If you are a fan of Julie Kagawa “shadow of the fox” then you will probably like this also.

I can’t think of a reason not to give this book a 5/5 stars.
