Oh hello there. It’s been a while, but Willow and I are back on track with our book club, and currently enjoying the Dark and Hollow Star Saga. Full review coming soon… BUT FIRST! Something pretty exciting happened in January. Willow. Became. A. Published. Author. So I had a very happy start to the year… Continue reading A Headful of Skye (and a heart full of stardust kitties)

Some Grouch Called Ove and Evelyn Mindmelt
As far as book groups go, A Court of Books and Bullshit were very bad last year at 1) writing reviews after reading the book (or not reading the book) and 2) sticking within the time frame that the book must be read. But anyway, our reading "year" begins in spring, so we're not totally… Continue reading Some Grouch Called Ove and Evelyn Mindmelt
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
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
Please tell me he hasn’t eaten her Grandma.
Lauren: WAIT, but...is Wolf going to turn into Scarlet’s Grandma at some point? Is Grandma going to turn into Wolf? I sure hope he didn’t eat her... These are the three main thoughts that went through my head reading Scarlet. Worryingly, I instantly loved Wolf, so I had to ask Willow about three times if… Continue reading Please tell me he hasn’t eaten her Grandma.
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
A Heart so Fierce and 50% DISAPPOINTED
Watch me die on my Grey/Harper hill.
The Invention of Wings
A Court of Books of Bullshit - book 2 Willow here. If you read our last post about The Goddess in the Machine, then you'll know I devoured it in less than two weeks, while it took Lauren the full four. Despite her jesting that I'd read the next one just as quickly, it was… Continue reading The Invention of Wings
The Goddess In The Machine & The Chapter In Binary
If you're here just because you want the binary chapter translation - skip to the SPOILER WARNING heading! From Lora Beth Johnson's instagram. Lauren here - seasoned member of the month-old Court of Books and Bullshit club, cousin of Willow and book-lover usually lacking the commitment to actually, well, read. Book one on our list… Continue reading The Goddess In The Machine & The Chapter In Binary
