Winter’s Orbit is a book that I’ve been so hyped for since I first heard about it. An adult queer sci-fi that just looks pretty character-driven and a lot of fun? I seriously needed it then and there. The moment I had an opportunity to sign up for a blog tour, I was right on it. I just had to get my hands on this book, and I’m so damn glad I did. This a fantasy novel by a British author and, honestly, I’m here to be promoting fellow Brits. As I don’t think I read enough genre books by British authors.
Do you like X-Men? My sister likes to joke that asking that is her perfect pick-up line. And honestly, it’s a question that should be asked in reference to this book.
Cute Mutants is a book by SJ Whitby and came out earlier this year. The second book is currently out and they’re in the middle of prepping the third for publication so right now is the perfect time to pick this queer, fun superhero novel up. I was lucky enough to receive a digital copy of this book as part of a blog tour for Caffeine Book Tours and I’m completely honoured to be a part of it!
When I first saw this book on NetGalley, I hadn’t seen it anywhere else and was intrigued. Now it’s out I’ve being seeing hints of it everywhere and I’m so honoured to be on this blog tour with Wednesday Books and St Martins Press.
A Golden Fury follows Thea, an alchemist adept living with her mother in France as revolution begins. When her mother successfully makes the philosopher’s stone she goes mad and Thea winds up being sent to Oxford to live with the Father she never knew. But when there she discovers more about this madness and with new and old friends winds up being forced to make the stone or lose those she loves.
So if you’ve seen me talking about books on any social media platform then you probably know that Sarah Glenn Marsh is one of my favourite authors and actually, just one of my favourite people in general. She is an amazing, super sweet person and the Reign of the Fallen duology is one of my favourite series EVER.
I knew her debut was Fear the Drowning Deep but I’m terrible and only recently got around to reading it. But with the companion novel Dread the Harvest Moon coming out I knew I had to read it because I so wanted to be part of this blog tour. And what better timing to talk about these historical fantasies set on the Isle of Man then Faedathon?
Fear the Drowning Deep featured many creatures from Manx folklore, creatures I hadn’t heard much about and I was so excited to learn about. With the new book going to follow the main character of the first book’s sister a few years later and more focused on the fae, I’m super excited for that too.
The Enchanted Isles series is bound to be one you’ve never heard of. It’s an indie series written by an author called I.L Cruz. It’s a YA fantasy series that focuses on a girl called Inez. She’s noble born but chooses to make a living as a smuggler to help out a rebel cause. Sounds interesting, right?
A Smuggler’s Path is the first book but the second book is out now and is called A Noble’s Path. And it’s definitely a good time to start the series.
I have to admit that I was honoured to be contacted about this blog tour. This book was one I wanted to check out but I didn’t think I’d get the chance to do this. I did have to try to speed-read the book but fortunately, I was able to get through it super quickly. Always a good thing in my book.
