State of Sorrow by Melinda Salisbury | Fantasy, politics, and a whole lot of grief

State of Sorrow

Goodreads | Book Depository •

A grief-stricken world void of colour and laughter. Stories that seem legendary, but were real eighteen years ago. A girl taking the chance she never realised she wanted. All of this – and more – you’ll find in State of Sorrow, and I guarantee you it’s worth the read.

February Wrap Up

February has been and almost gone, and for once this month felt like it lasted ages. Normally the months flash by without a pause, but looking back today and seeing which books I read, it actually seems like a lifetime ago when I read the books at the beginning of the month.

Anyway, as usual with these wrap ups, I’ll be sharing the books I’ve read, what I’m currently reading, a list of posts uploaded this month, and a life in general updates section.

This is going to be a long post, so get comfy and enjoy!

February Book Haul! (It’s a big one)

february book haul

I got a lot of books this month. A LOT.

But it was my birthday, so I guess it’s excusable?

But I’m not even sorry. My reading material is sorted for a few months now so I’m happy. Plus I’ve been really wanting most of these books for months now, so…yeah.

This post will be long enough on it’s own, so I won’t ramble any longer.

This will be in three sections: books I got before my birthday, ON my birthday, and after.

Let’s jump right in!

*All my reviews are spoiler free*

So, here’s me thinking I would have to wait ages to get this book. Only to find out my local Waterstones were selling early copies! And my lovely boyfriend very kindly bought me a copy after seeing how excited I got 😀 So I had to read it straight away, and started it the very next day.

I finished this book on Wednesday, so here’s my review…

My Life in Books tag!

I was tagged by  Belle Infini  and BOOKS AND OTHER MIRACLES to do this tag, so thank you! 😀

1. Find a book for each of your initials.

Well, my initials are AJW, so here we go…

ACOTARjane eyreWinter

A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J Maas/ Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte/ Winter by Marissa Meyer. I don’t actually own Winter yet, but all the other options had boring covers and I think I’ll be getting it at Christmas so close enough, right? Also Jane Eyre turned out to be the only book I own beginning with J. I had to scavenge for it.

2. Count your age along your bookshelf. What book is it?
