Imagine being able to see ghosts when your parents are ghost hunters (of a fashion). Helpful, right? Well…not so much. Cassidy Blake sees ghosts everywhere she goes, and she certainly doesn’t need to visit the most haunted places in Edinburgh to prove that. But of course that’s exactly what happens.
I needed a bit of V.E. Schwab back in my life. It had been too long.
In the wait for her final book in the A Darker Shade of Magic, I picked up This Savage Song, and as always, it was a great decision.
Let’s dive into This Savage Song!
Title: This Savage Song

Sooooo it was my birthday on Friday 🙂
And while I don’t make that huge a fuss about my own birthday, it does mean I was treated to some new books, and that alone is exciting for me!
Like with my December Book Haul, my main version of this haul is actually on my booktube channel, since it’s a lot easier to explain which were gifts/which I got before my birthday, along with why I’m interested in them. So the video will be down below, but underneath the books and synopsis’ will be listed for anyone who doesn’t have enough time (or simply don’t want) to watch the video.
So let’s see what books I got in February!
Hi guys! How are you all doing? I hope all of you that celebrate Christmas had a wonderful time these past few days ❤
Today’s post is coming to you a bit later in the day than usual. With the festivities and general busyness of the season, I didn’t have time to write and schedule the post beforehand like usual.
And let’s face it, it’s taking me longer to get back into the swing of things after taking a break.
But today, I’m bringing you my favourite books of 2016. The ones I READ in 2016, not necessarily published in 2016. Now, when I came to look through my Goodreads challenge to choose my favourites out, I was originally planning on picking out 16 for 2016. BUT…then I realised that this year, I’ve actually been quite stingy with my 5 star ratings, and there’s not that many I wanted to mention. However, I did rate a fair few books a 4.5/5 stars, and some of those are really close to being all-time favourites (and are definitely favourites for this year) so I’ve included those too, and managed to get 10.
So let’s talk about my favourite books of 2016!
I think every bookworm has their auto-buy authors.
The authors where no matter what they publish, you WILL be buying it. The authors where you’re constantly waiting for any news of upcoming books. The authors where they could write out their shopping list, and you’d find it enthralling.
Granted, auto-buy authors is kind of a new concept to me. I knew about them, but didn’t think I had any of my own. Purely because I have this thing where it takes me forever to continue series, so most of the time I never have the entire collection of books.
But then I realized…there are a few.
Even though there’s only 5 here, I’ll split this into two sections:
– I own all their books so far & eagerly waiting for the next
Pretty self explanatory. Most of the time, these are ongoing series, or an upcoming release is not yet out.
– Permanent *grabby hands* at the books I intend on buying
I don’t yet own all the books these authors have published, but I fully intend on buying them to get the whole collection.
So who are my auto-buy authors? Let’s find out!
Here we have another one of those spontaneous blog posts when an exciting bookish reveal has been made while I’m actually around to write a post about it.
So this time, we have one of my favourite series: A DARKER SHADE OF MAGIC by V.E. Schwab.
And this time, we have a title reveal.
We can finally stop calling the third book ADSOM3!
So what’s the title of the third book? I here you ask…
*All review I write are spoiler free*
My life is just overtaken by Victoria Schwab lately. Early February I reread A Darker Shade of Magic, while eagerly awaiting the arrival of this book. The cover reveal of This Savage Song was yesterday. And now I’ve finished this beauty of a book, and I couldn’t be more thrilled.
So let’s talk about A Gathering of Shadows!
Title: A Gathering of Shadows
Author: VE Schwab (otherwise known as Victoria Schwab)
Publisher: Titan Books
Series Status: The 2nd book in the Shades of Magic series
Number of Pages: 508
So today I bring you this spontaneous post because…
THERE’S BEEN A COVER REVEAL FOR THE UK EDITION OF THIS SAVAGE SONG BY VE SCHWAB.
I’m not joking.
It’s actually here.
And I needed to share it.
So here it is…
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!
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!
