Book Review - The Night Raven by Sarah Painter

I was very fortunate to be sent a copy of The Night Raven, book 1 in the Crow Investigations series by Sarah Painter in exchange for an honest review. The Night Raven is an urban fantasy mystery set in contemporary London and is currently available from The Book Depository and Amazon. This is my first time giving an in-depth review on my blog so bear with me as I find my feet! Synopsis Meet Lydia Crow… Lydia has always known she has no power, especially next to her infamous and more-than-slightly dodgy family.

10 Books at the top of my TBR Pile!

I’m in a massive reading slump right now and it’s not because I can’t decide what to read, or have nothing to read. I have loads of both! It’s an energy thing.

First I considered new releases, new authors, indie books and comics (my local library just got an awesome subscription to Comics Plus so yey access to free digital comics!). In the end, I settled for this; 5 books in ongoingRead More →

Sharing Saturday: Urban fantasy novels I love

Urban Fantasy is my favourite book genre and has been since I was 13 when I picked up a copy of the first Night World novel as a magazine freebie. Since I have devoured as much as I can and continue to do so. I’m still catching up with a lot of series, although there are several now that I’m up-to-date with or close to completing. The great thing about older series is that you can usually binge read a lot of them as there are several books published already or available at your local library. This is my no means the full list ofRead More →
