Book Review: Camp by L.C Rosen

Book Review: Camp by L.C Rosen

I’ve moved on from a bunch of chick-lit arcs to a load of queer ones and Camp was a nice book to start with. I received it as a free e-book from NetGalley so in return I’ll be posting an honest review.

It focuses on Randy, a high-femme teenage boy who is totally in love with a boy at camp called Hudson. The only problem is that Hudson only dates masc boys and for Randy to get his chance, he’ll have to change completely in the hope Hudson will fall for all of him. This is a pretty typical rom-com in some aspects and obviously, it doesn’t go the way he expected and there’s lot of problems.

Book Review: Swipe Right by Stephie Chapman

Book Review: Swipe Right by Stephie Chapman

Look at me, I’m on a roll! I’ve gotten through another chick-lit ARC but this time I sadly wasn’t hugely into it. Swipe Right focuses on Fran, a twenty-something woman who during an interview meets a very attractive and infuriating guy called Ollie with whom sparks fly that get’s them both the job. They’re both in relationships but still they can’t help falling in love and their time never seems to be right.

Review: Shadow and Flame by Mindee Arnett

Review: Shadow and Flame by Mindee Arnett

Why didn’t I know about Harper360’s blogger emails sooner? Seriously. I signed up for them after hearing about the hardback email and was so excited when the paperback one reached my inbox. Obviously I requested a few things but the one book I got was a sequel: Shadow and Flame by Mindee Arnett.

This is a book that has a gorgeous cover, an interesting sounding plot and is the conclusion in a duology. The first book is Onyx and Ivory which you can get in e-book, paperback and hardback now.

Shadow and Flame is set months after the events of the first book. The wilders have their own city and council but Kate has changed. This book starts you in the thick of it before skipping ahead and the losses she faces in between mean she’s harder and no longer so trusting. But she still wants to do good for the wilders.

I won’t lie; as fascinating as the world building in these books is I didn’t hugely care for this book. Mindee Arnett has this skill with writing worlds and characters. She weaves them in this way that allows you to hear their voices and clearly visualize but I still just…didn’t care. Which is a shame as I was really excited for this book.

But I’m also not having much luck with liking sequels recently.

This duology is interesting though and if you like series where you clearly see the effects of war on the characters then this is definitely one for you.

2/5 stars

Review: Would Like to Meet by Rachel Winters

I received a free copy of this book through NetGalley in return for an honest review.

It’s not a secret that though I’m not a huge fan of romance novels, I adore chick-lit. There’s something so easy to read and fun. I love losing myself in these women’s lives.

Would Like to Meet was a book that I’ve had an arc of for a while but it took me ages to get to. But when I did, I devoured it. It follows Evie Summers, a publishing assistant who had always wanted to be a screenwriter. When a famous screenwriter refuses to write a rom-com until he believes they’re realistic, Evie has to recreate famous movie meet cutes to prove they can lead to love.

Review: The Electric Heir by Victoria Lee

For those who are new here, I’m big on reading and reviewing queer genre books. I want to enjoy them and shout about them to the world even when the queerness isn’t specific to me.

So when I heard about The Fever King last year it was an immediate pre-order and 5 stars when I finished it. The moment I saw the sequel on NetGalley, I knew I had to request it. And I was so lucky to be granted a copy.

Playing With Words – A Book/Game Recommendation

Playing With Words – A Book/Game Recommendation

My followers might not know this but I’m a gamer. Maybe not a massive one considering the fact I don’t play online and I get bored if I sit down too long to play a game.

But I love video games for the same reasons I love books.

I love meeting new stories and characters

So I thought why not combine the two things? I’ll play games, I’ll review them and I’ll compare the game to a book or two depending on how many I can find.

So you’ll know if you like that game or that book – you might like the other.

Blog Tour: The Orphanage of Gods by Helena Coggan

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.

Book Review: A Vision in Crimson by Kathryn Troy

You might see that I have a link to my email on this blog and on Instagram so authors can contact me if they wish. Kathryn Troy did that for her book A Vision in Crimson and I happily accepted! This means that I received a copy of this book free in return for an honest review.

Katelyn knows her magic is risky, but Icaryan light is fading fast and she is desperate. Her narrowing path leads her to Luca, a vampire hybrid living on the outskirts of humanity. Mutual attraction ignites their weary hearts. The rogue hunter follows Katelyn into a world teeming with wonder and danger, forsaking his own quest to root out his father.  

But his father has not forgotten him. 

A Vision in Crimson is the first book of a dark epic fantasy fraught with passion, peril, and magic.
