Review: Legends and Lattes by Travis Baldree

Full disclosure, the author sent me a copy of this for review and I also read the audio book copy that I bought myself so this review covers both. Can I just say, I know we’re all suckers for gorgeous covers and that the surface level ‘judging a book by its cover’ is something we…

February Wrap Up

I feel like I say this every month but I think in particular February flew. Likely because I was off work for a lot of it. But 2022 is taking off at break neck speed so lets wrap it up! In February I read 8 books in total. Same as last month in terms of…

Review: Lear Wife by J.R Thorp

***Content warnings for death of a child and spouse, plague, self harm, rape, physical and mental abuse, animal death, isolation and hysteria.*** Tis not often these days I buy a book on a whim or without prior knowledge of it from somewere. That can be as basic as seeing it on a library shelf, hearing…

Review: Age of Ash by Daniel Abraham

***Content warnings for death of a sibling, violence, injury, murder, poverty, bloodletting, self harm and neglect (mentions)*** I love me a good city. Especially in a fantasy setting. One of my favourite tropes/devices an author can use is making the a city setting a character of it’s own. N.K Jemisin and New York as one…

Reading the Wheel of Time: The Eye of the World

So I have finally done what I thought would both never happen and was impossible to do if it did. I read The Eye of the World and started The Wheel of Time series. I actually had a copy of this as far back as 2018. I picked it up after a boozy brunch with…

January Wrap Up

The first month of 2022 is behind us already. It’s funny, I felt every second of last years January and couldn’t wait it to end. I blinked this year and it was gone. And as usual, my wrap up is a bit further into the month than most so at least we’re staying consistent! In…

Review: The Galaxy and the Ground Within by Becky Chambers

And here we have reached, the end. The end of the story of those across the Wayfarer books. If you’re one of the (smarter) people who doesn’t follow me on social media, you might not know that the only reading goal I had so far this year was to reread and finish this series in…

The Wayfarers by Becky Chambers; The Story So Far (3 Mini Reviews)

So it’s 2022, let’s try something new. I have kicked off the year by rereading and finishing (hopefully) the four books in Becky Chambers’s Wayfarers series. I am currently reading the final book in the series, The Galaxy and the Ground Within, and that will be getting it’s own review since I was approved for…

Review: Priest of Bones by Peter Mclean

***Content warnings for war, death, gore, murder, rape (off and on page), PTSD, child abuse, homophobia, genital mutilation, sexual abuse, substance and alcohol abuse, plague, death of a parent and torture*** Something that’s becoming more and more obivous about my taste is that I will always root for a morally grey, messy character. I don’t…

The Discworld Project: A Round Up of 2021

So if you’re new here, hello welcome to Hedwig’s World of Books. I’m Hedwig, these are my books and a percentage of them are by Terry Pratchett. Back in 2019, after I started this blog, I launched my first major rsading project. Named simply ‘The Discworld Project’, I aimed to overcome my grief over the…
