Review: Jingo by Terry Pratchett

**Content warnings for war, racism and mentions of genocide.** Welcome back to the Discworld Project! Was going to include a line about reviews coming back as well but considering this year, you all know the drill by now. So as we know, I love Sir Terry Pratchett. I love The Watch. Sam Vimes is up…

Review: Priest of Gallows by Peter McLean

**Content warnings for graphic torture, accounts of sexual assault, physical assault, drugging, forced sedation, addiction, paedophilia, chattel slavery, cannibalism, self immolation, homophobia, sexism, PTSD and alcoholism.** Possible spoilers for book one and two in the series. Ever feel scared to start the next book in a series? Like legit knowing that it’s one of your…

Review: A Marvellous Light by Freya Marske

**Content warnings for homophobia, sexism, mental abuse, mentions of child neglect, blood letting, self harm, assault, racism and mentions forcible drugging.** Fantasies of manners. You know me if you read this blog frequently, I do love them. I am still woefully behind on Gail Carriger’s work but my chosen reads have always been interesting and…

Review: Nona the Ninth by Tamsyn Muir

**CWs for death, mentions of torture, violence, self mutilation, blood letting, suicide, discussions of war and nuclear weaponry, disordered eating (mild forced eating included), Amnesia/Memory Loss/”Losing Time” and shootings** Mild spoilers from here for Gideon the Ninth and Harrow the Ninth. I’ve done my waiting, and finally. My time came. I’ve made absolutely no secret…

Review: The Jasmine Throne by Tasha Suri

**CWs for genocide, homophobia, racism, child death, human sacrifice, torture, Immolation/self-immolation, forced drug intake/withdrawal , manipulation, body horror and familial abuse.** This book has been a long time coming up and the joy in my soul at having read this is huge. I have had an eye on Tasha Suri’s books since her novel Empire…

Review: The Voyage of the Basilisk by Marie Brennan

***Content warnings for colonialism, war, plague, sexism, implied homophobia, and kidnapping*** Possible spoilers for previous books. And I am back with reviews today on the blog! So, I’ve mentioned a few times now across various posts this year that this is, for me, ‘the year of the audio book’. The Memoirs of Lady Trent are…

Review: Feet of Clay by Terry Pratchett

Welcome back to the Discworld Project! I’ve been itching to get to this entry in the series for a while, and not because a group tried (and failed) to recruit Sir Terry Pratchett to their bigotted cause. But because this was three great things; a City Watch book, an introduction of new characters and what…

Review: Maskerade by Terry Pratchett

Welcome back to the Discworld Project fam! (Yes I typed that and no I don’t know if I will ever say it again.) It has been a bit longer than I thought I would be but I will drop a wee mention of the fact I picked up the next book right after this. This…

***Content warnings for war, death, gore, murder, rape (off and on page), PTSD, child abuse, homophobia, sexual abuse, substance and alcohol abuse, plague, death of a parent, mentions of torture and animal abuse*** So ya know when you’re reading a series that really goes places you know are going to be dark, twisty and highly questionable?…

April Wrap Up

How was everyone’s April? Weird? Busy? Chaotic? Or was that just mine? This was somehow the month where I read the most books but also put down the busiest work/social month so far as well. I don’t know how but I am still blinking in confusion. I went to my first hen night too! That…
