Oak & Mistletoe by J.Z.N. McCauley ~ Review + Interview

Stories transport readers to new places.

A story that can spirit you away from your home or reading nook, and into another place or time, is certainly worth giving a spot on your bookshelf to.

And from the first chapter Oak & Mistletoe by J.Z.N. McCauley lifted me right out of my seat and whirled me away to Ireland for an tale filled with adventure, Druids, and a romance entangled in magic.

Read on for my thoughts on the book!

As well as my review, I also have an author interview with J.Z.N. McCauley for you guys to take a peek at! She was so lovely to chat to and gave me some great insights into Oak & Mistletoe and her writing process.

The Alchemists of Loom by Elise Kova ~ Blog Tour + Interview

A brilliant book is always a treat.

As I've mentioned recently, author Elise Kova's The Alchemists of Loom is a fantastic read which provides its readers with beautifully constructed characters and a brilliant steampunk world to explore.

I didn't think I could possibly fall further in love with this book and The Loom Saga but after I sat down to chat with Elise Kova (thanks to the people over at Xpresso Book Tours) I gained a whole new appreciation for The Alchemists of Loom and Elise's writing.

As well as the interview, I also have a wonderful giveaway to share with you read on for more!

And if you like what you see here be sure to check out the rest of the stops on the tour (see here for the complete tour schedule).

#FriendFavourites ~ Day 2: Jess

Everybody has a list of favourite things.

We tend to use the word favourite a lot - at least, I know I do! Whether I'm fangirling over my 'favourite' characters, books, tv shows, or foods...there is a special VIP status that goes along with the term that's hard to resist.

But what truly makes a favourite special?

For me, it's the unique nature of favourites. They're different for everyone - they reflect diversity and differing opinions. They're an insight into a person's mind, their likes and dislikes, and what makes them them.

The #FriendFavourites tag is about showcasing this unique nature.

These aren't just book recs. These are book portraits - painting a picture of the readers who have grown to love these stories and relate to these characters. Each #FriendFavourites post will look at the why and the who behind each of these incredible books that my fellow bookworms and friends wish to share with you all.

I'm so excited to not only bring some great books into your lives and onto your shelves but to introduce some wonderful personalities to you. Each of these people holds a special place in my heart and my life :)

So without further ado, let's get started!

The Crown's Dog by Elise Kova ~ ARC Review (Spoiler Free)

Certain characters have unique voices that strike a chord with readers.

Voices that tend to help readers engage further with the story. These characters can have any part in the book's magic - from main protagonists to brief roles as secondary characters. But no matter how big the part, their voice shines through and makes you want to read more.

Elise Kova has granted Air Awakens fans their wish.

Who didn't fall for Jax Wendyll the moment they met him?! And now with the launching of Elise Kova's Air Awakens prequel trilogy the Golden Guard series and the first novel The Crown's Dog, we get to experience more of Jax, along with Erion and Baldair (not to mention Aldrik makes an appearance!!!).

In The Crown's Dog more pieces of the Air Awakens puzzle slip into place. So prepare to fall in love with these characters all over again!

Read on for my thoughts (spoiler free) on The Crown's Dog...

Good Characters Make For Good Reading ~ The Alchemists of Loom ARC Review

Say hello to Elise Kova's brand new fantasy steampunk series.

Yes, you're reading that correctly! Elise Kova, author of the amazing Air Awakens series, has written a new series for us to read and adore...the Loom Saga. When I discovered that I'd been approved for an ARC of the first novel, The Alchemists of Loom, you can bet that my fangirl dance mode was activated!
^^ This is a pretty accurate representation lol ^^

A big thank you to Keymaster Press and Elise Kova for my beautiful review copy (look how freaking adorable it is! That cover art is everything).

Good characters can turn a 'great' book into an unforgettable one.

There's no denying that Elise Kova writes great books - that was a fact even before I began reading The Alchemists of LoomBut as I began reading I realised that although the book's plot was wonderful (with its world building, twists and turns, and brilliant base concepts) the plot wasn't what elevated The Alchemists of Loom to the next level.

That was a job for the story's diverse cast of characters. There was an instant connection. 'Connection' is actually the perfect word to describe the way that you, the reader, find yourself invested in Elise's characters' and their gritty pasts and uncertain futures.

So prepare yourself for tonnes of fangirling, a sneak peek into the book, some Loom reading playlist suggestions, and my honest thoughts on the book...
