Two Dark Reigns Review

If I were to describe the Three Dark Crowns series in one word, I would say it’s addictive. When I began reading the first book, I didn’t even like it that much. I thought the plot was a hot mess and I was irritated that the story involved one of my least favourite tropes; the dreaded love triangle. Yet, I still found myself unable to put down the book.

Sadie Review

Summers is like no other writer in YA; her voice is raw and authentic, and she pulls no punches. Each of her books is dark, full of twists and turns, and above all, heart breaking in its’ realism. What perhaps makes Summers most unique, however, is her penchant for open endings. If you need your novels to end with a happily-ever-after, then I’d recommend staying well away from Summers’ books.

Grim Lovelies Review

Grim Lovelies re-imagines modern day Paris as a world full of witches, goblins, and of course, magic. One such witch, Mada Vittora has defied the laws of nature by turning animals into her human servants; creations called “Beasties”. Though the Mada can be cruel, she dotes on her youngest servant, Anouk. Thus, when her mistress is brutally murdered, Anouk is shocked and distraught. Especially once she discovers that the death of her creator means that she will turn back into her animal form in three days, unless another witch re-casts the spell. Thus Anouk and her Beastie friends begin a race against the clock to save their human lives.
