July 2020 Wrap-up


July is my annual re-read month and this year I managed to make every book a re-read (last year I had a challenge where I had to read at least one new author every month so it wasn’t possible to have a month of only re-reads).

Review: The Angel of the Crows by Katherine Addison

The Angel of the Crows

Katherine Addison


448 pages



The Goblin Emperor was a wonderfully charming read with a very sweet protagonist and an engaging plot which made me smile from beginning to end. It was a book I very much enjoyed. The Angel of the Crows is a very different animal.
