Let me preface this review by saying that the moment I finished reading The Gilded Wolves, I headed straight out to get the rest of Roshani Chokshi’s books.
The Gilded Wolves is a dark, dark, dark work of art from the first word to the very last one, promising of more instalments to come. The moment I picked it up, I refused to put it down and spent every waking moment abandoning my life and dedicating it to these characters. … More The Gilded Wolves: Enter A New Squad Goals – Blog Tour Review
As one of the most anticipated books of the year (it already has a sequel in store!), Children of Blood and Bone was a phenomenal debut novel.

While it served only to tie up all the loose ends and bring the story back full circle to The Hundredth Queen, it also is a nice change in pace for a series wrought with intensity and danger. In fact, you can see already see the ending coming and, that’s not entirely a bad thing. … More The Legend of The Hundredth Rani Lives On in The Warrior Queen – An ARC Review
I’m a huge fan of Selina Kyle and Catwoman; more so, the idea and concept of her as a character. So, I was a little sceptical when I heard Sarah J Maas was going to write a retelling of her story for the DC Icons series. And everyone knows how much I dislike her pseudo-feminist works. But, I am also in love with her skill to tell a good story. … More Catwoman: Soulstealer: The Cat Has Come to Play! – A Book Review
