Rejoice
14, Oct
4/5 stars.

With Rejoice: A Knife to the Heart, Erikson holds up a mirror for all of humanity.

Skyward
11, Oct

4.5/5 stars.

This is a fine example of how one writes Young Adult.  I am once again in awe of this master of storytelling, who excelled in his first full-length space opera novel.

Legion: The Many Lives of Stephen Leeds (Legion, #1 - 3)
20, Sep

4.5/5 stars.

Legion carries the Sanderson trademark through and through, with concepts which are fantastical and far out, but the storytelling is always centred around the characters and humanistic themes.

The Cabinet of Curiosities (Pendergast, #3)
16, Sep

4.5 stars.

Three books in and Agent Pendergast might have convinced me to include thrillers as one of my favourite genres. 

City of Miracles (The Divine Cities, #3)
08, Sep

5/5 stars.

If I could have divined that Robert Jackson Bennett's masterful genre-redefining trilogy will end up as one of my all-time favourites, I would not have waited so long to read it. 

City of Blades (The Divine Cities, #2)
26, Aug

5/5 stars.

City of Blades is easily one of the best books I've read this year; it has almost everything I could ask for in a sequel that builds upon a fantastic start to a trilogy.

City of Stairs (The Divine Cities, #1)
17, Aug
4.5/5 stars.

Sometimes you may wonder why you keep delaying a series that you have been meaning to read, and when you've finally read it, you want to smack yourself hard for waiting so long to do so.  Divine Cities falls right into this category of "Why in the world did it take me so long to read this?  It is so good!"

How to Find Love in a Bookshop
13, Aug
4/5 stars.

This was such a lovely read that I have picked up purely because its title and cover design depicting one of those enchanting English bookshops attracted me

Reliquary (Pendergast, #2)
05, Aug

4/5 stars.

A great sequel to the first of the Pendergast series, Reliquary is an absorbing, page-turner that is better than its predecessor.

The Stone Sky (The Broken Earth, #3)
28, Jul

5/5 stars.

Jemisin has created an extraordinary trilogy that is original, captivating and emotionally powerful.
