    BOOK REVIEW : A CONJURING OF LIGHT (SHADES OF MAGIC #3) BY V. E. SCHWAB

    A Conjuring Of Light is the third and final book in the Shades Of Magic series. VE Schwab has yet again done a fantastic job of creating a story that will captivate and fascinate you throughout the book. I was in the mood for binge-reading the series and was able to fly through it effortlessly. I have to say I am a confirmed fan of VE Schwab, and she will be an automatic author buy for me. The finale not only lived up to my expectations, but it also is a favorite of mine. I loved every moment of reading this series and in particular this book. The new developments…

    BOOK REVIEW : DJINN BY SANG KROMAH

    Djinn is a YA urban fantasy with Djinns as the fantastical creatures. The story is told from Bijou a young teenager's perspective. We follow her move to the new town filled with new beginnings. Bijou has been following her grandmother from place to place uprooting her life.

    BOOK REVIEW : WHERE THERE BE HUMANS BY REBEKAH L. PURDY

    Where There Be Humans is an interesting story about a half-goblin who struggles with her identity. In a world where being half-goblin is looked down upon she has to fight her way to be respected and accepted. This is a romantic fantasy that mainly focuses on Ivy's journey than world-building. The world was fascinating with different fantastical species and creatures. The magic system was minimal. There was lore that sounded intriguing but was not expanded upon in the story. The book is easy to get through and fast-paced. There were some aspects of the story that reminded me of Harry Potter, with certain characters and their interactions. While the story…

    BOOK REVIEW : A GATHERING OF SHADOWS (SHADES OF MAGIC #2) V.E. SCHWAB

    I picked this up after the first book. I was in the mood to binge read the series and I couldn't wait to start. I was quite excited to see Lila, Kell, and Rhy's journey and where life would take them. A Gathering Of Shadows picks up 4 months after A Darker Shade Of Magic ended. Let's just say that this book kept me hooked to the story from beginning to end. I don't know how to talk about anything without giving any part of the story away, because of major SPOILERS!!! The book is set up with the expansion of the world or to be more precise, Arnes, and…

    BOOK REVIEW : A DARKER SHADE OF MAGIC (SHADES OF MAGIC #1) BY V. E. SCHWAB

    I bought the box set for Shades Of Magic series after finishing Vengeful. I am binge reading this series at the moment. I haven't been able to stop reading the series. As of right now, I am reading the third book in the series and I cannot put it down. A Darker Shade Of Magic is a splendid fantasy that will take you through different Londons nested inside one another. The setting is atmospheric with the most vivid descriptions of the different Londons. I loved how the author managed to make each of these Londons characters themselves with unique characteristics and personality attached to it. The magic and the world…
