This is definitely a book outside of my comfort zone, but this weird, pregnant woman was craving something.. funny? And I stumbled upon Magical Mystery Paws on NetGalley so.. here we are..
With Christmas coming closer and closer, it's time to read some cozy Christmas-reads once in a while.. So why not read about a Christmas in New York? Especially since it's a city I'd love to see during Winter one day! Let's see how I liked this romance, huh?
Sometimes I feel like reading a book that isn't in any of my regular genres, which is exactly what happened when I picked up this one. I do like the occasional thriller or mystery novel, so when I started craving a book like that.. My eyes immediately wandered to S.T.A.G.S by M.A. Bennett. So, here we are! Time to review!
The thing that got me to pick up this book is very simple. Empress of All Seasons is an Asian-inspired young adult fantasy, written by an Asian author. Did I enjoy it? Yes. Did I have some issues? Yes.
Back when I went to YALC in July, this is one of the ARC's I succeeded at picking up. I was so pumped to read it, but.. as usual, it disappeared down the TBR-mountain. That is, until people kept saying and mentioning how they were looking forward to Girls of Paper and Fire and I couldn't not pick it up immediately! So, here's my review - fingers crossed I do this novel justice with it.
I was quite enjoying my read of IT up until I read the final quarter of the book and then it all went down the drain. I was totally willing to rate this book four or four and a half cupcakes but now.. I'm not really all that sure anymore. Let's see why..
At the start of the year, I read Dear Martin by Nic Stone and rated it 4,5 cupcakes so you can say I was quite excited to hear about her new novel. Not to mention there'd be queer characters. I was sold, needed it, requested it and.. by some amazing miracle actually got my hands on an eARC?! And then I finished it and it all came crashing down.
