Swan Boy

Today I’m going to be talking about the beautiful Swan Boy by the wonderful Nikki Sheehan which is not released until 5th May 2016. I received a copy of Swan Boy via Rocktheboat (I also got a freaky awesome bookmark too!) in exchange for an honest review. And I can assure you this is an fantastic book! I gave it 5/5 Stars on goodreads. Firstly, here is a look at this gorgeous cover. From the cover I imagined the story to have something to do with Swans, a boy and London from the red bus. I was not wrong. Swan Boy is about a boy called Johnny who has recently moved from his home with his younger brother and mum after his dad sadly died unexpectedly.

Drawing on tables, being told its your bedtime (when really its like 5 hours…

After finishing Shatter Me earlier this month, I had to go see how the rest of the series was going to go! THOSE EYES ON THE COVER ARE ACTUALLY GORGEOUS!  After seeing the whole series, my favourite’s got to be Ignite Me (BRB while I die over this cover!). I’ll hopefully get to devouring the rest of this series next month! Also, because I loved – like, actually fangirl so hard for – Snow Like Ashes, I needed to know what was going to happen in Ice Like Fire! I’m so excited!! I have heard she’s not with the guy I ship her with in this book though, so poo! OF COURSE, I had to get the new Alexandra Bracken book! Like, that could just come out and I not get excited about it (blasphemy!). I don’t…

The Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet by Becky Chambers

Originally posted on Blu Chicken Ninja  Rating: 5 / 5 stars Format: Hardback Published: 13th August 2015 Book Depository | Goodreads Somewhere within our crowded sky, a crew of wormhole builders hops from planet to planet, on their way to the job of a lifetime. To the galaxy at large, humanity is a minor species, and one patched-up construction vessel is a mere speck on the starchart. This is an everyday sort of ship, just trying to get from here to there. But all voyages leave their mark, and even the most ordinary of people have stories worth telling. A young Martian woman, hoping the vastness of space will put some distance between herself and the life she‘s left behind. An alien pilot, navigating life without her own kind. A pacifist captain, awaiting the return of a loved one at war. You know how sometimes you read a book that gives you all the feels but then it takes those feels and jumps on them and mashes them into tiny pieces. That was The Long …
