The digest: A remarkably fun and light-hearted graphic novel with a strong presence of speculative fiction elements. If you are after an easily-digested, fast-paced middle-grade series, Lumberjanes might be just what you are after.
The digest: I cannot recommend this book highly enough to fantasy lovers. It's an immersive, highly detailed, excellent story with almost everything you could want. It is deeply thought-provoking, it is brutal, it is violent, and it is bloody good.
Bit late to this one but hey-ho, better late than never. I won't be getting to too many books this month as I have a couple of uni exams in a couple of weeks, but I've got a fairly ambitious TBR.

The digest: if you liked the Percy Jackson series then you will most likely enjoy Aru Shah and the End of Time - a retelling of Hindu mythology where 21st Century kids are reincarnated heroes destined to save the world once again.

I thought I would drop by and give you all a bit of an end-of-year TBR update since I think a few of you might be interested in what else I am planning to read by the end of 2018.
The digest: this book is popular for a reason. Taylor tells a truly intriguing story whilst avoiding overuse of the standard YA tropes. It's not perfect but it is definitely worth a look for anyone after a YA novel with strong worldbuilding.
The digest: This Savage Song, unfortunately, is nowhere near as entertaining or high quality as Schwab's other books. It is let down by its generic plot, poor pacing, and cringey dialogue.
