Eli Ever and Victor Vale were only medical students when their mutual discovery that near-death experiences can, under the right conditions, manifest extraordinary abilities.
They were best friends, and rivals, and then enemies. They were dead, then alive, and then—Eli killed Victor, once and for all.
Or so he thought—but Sydney Clarke felt otherwise, and used her own superpower to tip the scales. Now, a trio hides in the shadows, while another takes advantages of post-death life to take over the city of Merit.
If there can be life after death—will there be calm after vengeance, or will chaos rule?
IMI RECOMMENDS | My Fave Feminist & LGBTQIA+ Books
So it’s my lovely friend Abi’s birthday today and I thought that in honour of her wonderful, fierce feminist and LGBTQIA+ self, I would recommend some of my favourite books that deal with these topics!
Obviously, this is only a small collection and you will have heard of so many more than this, but these are my personal favourites.Continue reading
BOOK REVIEWS | Eight ★★★★★ Reads, from ‘Only Love Can Break Your Heart’ to ‘The Long Way to a Small Angry Planet’
Shall we take a guess as to who is behind on her reviews (again)? Yep, it’s me. So here’s eight mini-reviews of some of the best things I’ve been reading recently, including Radio Silence by Alice Oseman, The Kiss Quotient by Helen Hoang and The Long Way to a Small Angry Planet by Becky Chambers.Continue reading
ARC REVIEWS | September-November Releases
As usual, I’m behind on reviews so let’s have a catch-up session on some ARCs I’ve read of late. A few of these were read as part of my #ARCAugust challenge (yes, that’s how behind I am) while others I read this month!Continue reading
#ARCAUGUST | That’s Not What Happened, These Rebel Waves & City of Ghosts
So #ARCAugust is an annual challenge hosted by Read Sleep Repeat – I’m not necessarily participating in the official challenge, but feel free to go check it out on their blog and see what their plans are.
For me, I just want to read as many unreleased ARCs as I can that have been building up for me, so I’ve come up with my own personal goals for August.
- Read at least 6 unreleased ARCs from my TBR.
- Review at least half of what I read on my blog.
- Mini-review all books on my twitter and insta stories.
REVIEWS & WRITING: EPISODE III | ARCs Edition – Sawkill Girls, Floored & A Sky Painted Gold
SHOCK, I’m back on my blog in a timely manner! So I’ve recently had the pleasure of reading some ARCs provided to be by lovely publishers and thought I’d get the reviews up before I lose track of time and it becomes another manic, ridiculous amount of half-remembered reviews. HERE WE GO.Continue reading
REVIEWS & WRITING: EPISODE II | Playing Review Catch-Up – Clean & A Thousand Perfect Notes
Already, these weekly updates have slipped to never. I have been in the direst writing slump and that has just affected everything and I haven’t really been particularly active here at all. I’m constantly busy and blogging takes a lot. My Instagram, however, is pretty active so if you fancy mini-reviews and what I’m up to – that’s the place to be.
Obviously, I’ve read quite a lot since my update so what I’m going to do is list them all with short reviews and do longer ones for my faves! Here goes nothing!Continue reading
REVIEWS & WRITING: EPISODE I | Obsidio, The Path Keeper & How to Commandeer a Ship
Having spoken about it earlier this week, I am now starting my new style of post – my first ever weekly wrap up of mini-reviews and how my writing is going so that I’m not spending all my time on my blog instead of writing the actual bloody book.Continue reading
2018 QUARTERLY WRAP UP | JAN-MAR
Due to my distinct lack of ability to do wrap-ups regularly, I’ve decided this year that quarterly wrap-ups might be a little better for me. I can do four bulk posts to keep you all informed on how I’ve done. Plus, it means I’ll keep posting!Continue reading
