Don’t Be Afraid To Admit Book Defeat

Our second choice for A Court of Books and Bullshit 2022 reading list has been looming over us for a long time. We put it off at first only because of life commitments, and then because we picked up other books to get us through the busy season at our separate reading paces. So, finally,… Continue reading Don’t Be Afraid To Admit Book Defeat

Stars Above – stella review

Foreword: We actually read Stars Above by Marissa Meyer in April of 2022 and, despite our immediate debrief together, Willow waited for three months before Lauren wrote her blog review! We can forgive her since she was busy planning her July wedding; congratulations, by the way, it was great. It looks like our reading plan… Continue reading Stars Above – stella review

A Court of Books and Bullshit 2022 Reading List

Desktop background by Yuumei - paid for, too! I love her art so much. Willow here. As you can see, I was very prepared to begin our book selection for 2022. After gushing about Winter by Marissa Meyer, our last book of 2021, we got down to the exciting business of suggesting What Next? Without… Continue reading A Court of Books and Bullshit 2022 Reading List

Don’t worry, fellow space cadets, Her Majesty is delightfully repulsive

Hello again, Lauren here. I’m sad to be writing the review for Winter by Marissa Meyer, because it means our travels through space with the cyborg, A.I. robot, loveable criminal, Lunar shell, French Farmer and werewolf have reached their end! It’s quite unusual for me to like every single one of the characters in a… Continue reading Don’t worry, fellow space cadets, Her Majesty is delightfully repulsive

Thoughtful Book-nerd Gift

"I WISH I could listen to audiobooks on my very long commute to work," I lament to Lauren the night of her birthday. We're talking about the last book on our reading list - Winter by Marissa Meyer. Since I raved about the audio of Cress in our last review, Lauren got the finale on… Continue reading Thoughtful Book-nerd Gift

Cress is apparently a type of lettuce

Look at the Dutch cover by Tara Spruit! Hi there, it's Willow kicking off today's book review. Not only did this once again send me reeling with glee the entire time, but I thoroughly enjoyed it as an audiobook, too. Rebecca Soler ticks every one of my boxes - multiple voices, use of pitch and… Continue reading Cress is apparently a type of lettuce

The Eve Illusion – not the popcorn flavour you were expecting

So, it’s 3am and I’m lying in bed trying (and failing) to go to sleep. I know, I think, I’ll read The Eve Illusion for a bit. That’ll be a good bedtime story – cute romance with a chance of mild threat.   Fast-forward to 4am and I’m now lying in bed, further away from… Continue reading The Eve Illusion – not the popcorn flavour you were expecting

Eve of Man – DON’T WORRY, LADS, SHE’S HOT

Look at that book cover. Mmm. Delightful. ❤ Tis Willow leading the review today. My mum actually chose this book for Lauren's birthday (hi Mum). I enjoyed this way more than expected. I'm not sure what made me nervous - probably just the premise "beautiful teen girl living in a world of literally only men"… Continue reading Eve of Man – DON’T WORRY, LADS, SHE’S HOT

A Vow so Non-existent and Deadly Boring

Hello, Lauren here. OK. I'm going to try and be nice. You know when you have a wobbly table? Well, I’m sure A Vow so Bold and Deadly would be an excellent book to shove under the shorter leg. Highly useful book, this one, several extremely practical uses for it. Fire kindling, chip wrapping, bog...… Continue reading A Vow so Non-existent and Deadly Boring
