TBR Feature #63

Wednesday, 19 July 2017

TBR Feature is the chance for me to, every Wednesday, pick one of my unread books and discuss it: why I picked it up, when I'll get round to reading it, if I'm still interested in it at all etc.

Discoucia: An Extract

Tuesday, 18 July 2017

Today, I'm excited to announce that I'm part of the blog tour for Discoucia: A Victorianish Fairytale by Nick Lovelock, and that - thanks to Authoright - I have an extract to share with you! I hope you find it just as exciting as I did and if you're interested in what sounds like a fun steampunk adventure I'll have a full review coming soon.

Suicide Stitch by Sarah L Johnson

Monday, 17 July 2017

Love is woven into the fabric of our lives. A force of nature that knits us together even as it tears us apart. Threads of hunger, passion, and pain run through this collection where the last Nephilim fights his gory cravings, a latchkey kid befriends a cage dancer, and a bizarre threat lurks in the shadows of a friendly neighbourhood. Siblings turn monstrous and gods are brought to their knees in a dark literary patchwork that will drive you into the knot of your lover's arms, knowing how easily you could unravel.

Preparing For A Freshwater Aquarium

Something slightly different for you this week, folks, as I've been so excited since it happened I have to share it with you and give you a few tips if you find yourself in a similar situation. I'll be splitting it into parts so as not to overload you, but this post covering the basics is a little long so I do apologise for that!

The Winner's Curse by Marie Rutkoski

The Glimpse by Claire Merle

Monday, 10 July 2017

In a near future, society is segregated according to whether people are genetically disposed to mental illness. 17-year-old Ana has been living the privileged life of a Pure due to an error in her DNA test. When the authorities find out, she faces banishment from her safe Community, a fate only thwarted by the fact that she has already been promised to Pure-boy Jasper Taurell.

Jasper is from a rich and influential family and despite Ana’s condition, wants to be with her. The authorities grant Ana a tentative reprieve. If she is joined to Jasper before her 18th birthday, she may stay in the Community until her illness manifests. But if Jasper changes his mind, she will be cast out among the Crazies. As Ana’s joining ceremony and her birthday loom closer, she dares to hope she will be saved from the horror of the City and live a ‘normal’ life. But then Jasper disappears.

Led to believe Jasper has been taken by a strange sect the authorities will not interfere with, Ana sneaks out of her well-guarded Community to find him herself. Her search takes her through the underbelly of society, and as she delves deeper into the mystery of Jasper’s abduction she uncovers some devastating truths that destroy everything she has grown up to believe.

Prince of Thorns by Mark Lawrence

Areh by Jeffrey Kinsey

Monday, 3 July 2017

An ancient and cruel religion, The Purpose, deifies children for their deformities—a beautiful girl with three arms, a brave boy with one eye... the exceptional list goes on. Painted and costumed, they are worshipped on stage. Shy and exposed, they are ridiculed in the streets, often by the same faces. Glorious or repulsive? Gods or freaks? How deep will the identity divide be dredged, and to which side will the truth finally tip? Out of the city, through strange forests and dark dreams, we follow six young friends as they chase their answer. Lightning-lit and pulling moon into mountain, it awaits them at the top of the world.
