Today's #FavQuotesMonday is from another of my all time favourite series, this one co-written by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff. Highly recommend this if you're even vaguely into scifi (and even if you're not).

Today's #favquotesmonday is one of my all-time favourites. From the deliciously dark and gloomy Six of Crows heist caper by Leigh Bardugo
P.S. Just watched the teaser for season 2 of Shadow and Bone and was very pleased to see lots of Kaz, Jesper, and Inej!

A quick review of The Ink Black Heart. I found this an expertly woven mystery that I really enjoyed digging further and further into. Strike and Ellacott continue to be strong characters though I feel Galbraith gets a little blunt with the romantic aspects of it - with a lot of telling rather than showing, as well as predictable obstacles (that don't reflect Strike in a particularly good light). But the core mystery is more than enough to keep you going on this one. Highly recommend if you like a good mystery read.

🚀 Book review - Cytonic 🚀
.
I started off not enjoying this one as much as the previous two books in the series, but slowly got drawn in by Sanderson's easy-to-read storytelling and great characters. I'm a reader who gets annoyed when an author makes me love a character or two then promptly introduces new characters I don't care about... Sanderson has introduced a new supporting cast around Spensa in each book of this series so far but has managed to sell me on all of them, which is no mean feat! It helps that a couple of core favorites get to stick around (Doomslug is currently my fav). If you're after a really fun YA scifi romp, I totally recommend this one ⭐⭐⭐⭐

Very much enjoying that little bestseller tag in one of Amazon Australia's fantasy categories - thanks entirely to my Aussie supporters 😍. UK fans - I see you too, Rise has been dropping in and out of the top spot in one of its categories there over the past few days. Very fortunate author over here 🍾🥇🎉
