The Drowned City by K.J. Maitland

The Drowned City has been one of my anticipated reads for 2021, and I'm delighted to say that it did not disappoint. What I didn't know until finishing, is that it is the first book in a new historical fiction series from K.J. Maitland and I'm really looking forward to reading the second book in the series. But first my review for book one.

The Outlaws Scarlett and Browne by Jonathan Stroud

Today's blog post is a very exciting Chapter One reveal of The Outlaws Scarlett & Browne by Jonathan Stroud. England has been radically changed by a series of catastrophes – large cities have disappeared and London has been replaced by a lagoon. The surviving population exists in fortified towns where they cling to traditional ways, while strangely evolved beasts prowl the wilderness beyond. Conformity is rigidly enforced and those who fall foul of the rules are persecuted: some are killed, others are driven out into the wilds. Only a few fight back – and two of these outlaws, Scarlett McCain and Albert Browne, display an audacity and talent that makes them legends. Read on for the first chapter!

Book Review: The Fountains of Slience by Ruta Sepetys


You know a book is truly good, is when you feel physically compelled to read on despite other commitments and much needed sleep. Well hello The Fountains of Silence, the book that did just that to me. I'm going to try and form a coherent review about this magnificent book.
