September Illumicrate

I said I was going to give it another go and I'm glad I did. The September High Stakes Illumicrate box was so lovely. There were so many items I loved and nothing I didn't really like. The book as well. Oh, it's gorgeous. I think I'm going to try and keep on with this brand too.... Unfortunately, I already had a copy of this book but I'd…

This Cruel Design by Emily Suvada

This Cruel Design had everything I loved from the first novel This Mortal Coil (review here) and more besides. The characters I'd got to know and love were further developed in This Cruel Design and also questioned which I loved.
