Rating:

Four Stars

The breath-taking sequel to the acclaimed The Girl from Everywhere. Nix has escaped her past, but when the person she loves most is at risk, even the daughter of a time traveller may not be able to outrun her fate—no matter where she goes. Fans of Rae Carson, Alexandra Bracken, and Outlander will fall hard for Heidi Heilig’s sweeping fantasy.

Nix has spent her whole life journeying to places both real and imagined aboard her time-traveling father’s ship. And now it’s finally time for her to take the helm. Her father has given up his obsession to save her mother – and possibly erase Nix’s existence – and Nix’s future lies bright before her. Until she learns that she is destined to lose the one she loves. But her relationship with Kash – best friend, thief, charmer extraordinaire – is only just beginning. How can she bear to lose him? How can she bear to become as adrift and alone as her father?

Desperate to change her fate, Nix takes her crew to a mythical utopia to meet another Navigator who promises to teach her how to manipulate time. But everything in this utopia is constantly changing, and nothing is what it seems—not even her relationship with Kash. Nix must grapple with whether anyone can escape her destiny, her history, her choices. Heidi Heilig weaves fantasy, history, and romance together to tackle questions of free will, fate, and what it means to love another person. But at the centre of this adventure are the extraordinary, multifaceted, and multicultural characters that leap off the page, and an intricate, recognizable world that has no bounds. The sequel – and conclusion – to the indie darling The Girl from Everywhere will be devoured by fans of Rachel Hartman and Maggie Stiefvater. Includes black-and-white maps.

Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Favourite YA Book Covers; UK Edition Vs. US Edition

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Each week there is a new topic for bloggers to choose and list their top ten. This week’s theme is an all about visuals freebie, and while it was supposed to be about graphic novels I haven’t read nearly enough to make a list so I picked Top Ten Favourite YA Book Covers; UK Edition Vs. US Edition instead.

For reasons, unbeknownst to most of us, sometimes there are different covers for the UK edition and the US edition of the same book. While with most of the books I own I have been more than happy with the UK cover there are still a few where I’ve looked on at the copies people in the US have brought and gotten very jealous. There have even been a couple of very rare occasions where I’ve gone onto the US Amazon site and paid the extra shipping just to get the US covers, but that’s very rare.

2016 End of Year Survey

Happy New Year everyone! Here’s hoping you all have an amazing 2017. To celebrate the new year and look back at my reading journey throughout 2016 I decided to take part in the End of Year Survey created and hosted by Jamie at The Perpetual Page-Turner.

2016-end-of-year-survey

Last year I saw a couple of bloggers on WordPress taking part in this. It looked like such a fun way to look back over the year but as I’d already posted an end of year review for 2015 I didn’t see the point in doing another one. Still I remember the survey and now we’ve reached the end of 2016 I’ve taken the opportunity to take part in it myself.

Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Books I’m Looking Forward to for the First Half of 2017

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Each week there is a new topic for bloggers to choose and list their top ten. This week’s theme is Top Ten Books I’m Looking Forward to for the First Half of 2017.

There are so many amazing books being released next year. Some of my favourite series, favourite duologies, are coming to an end and I can’t wait to see how things tie up for my favourite characters. Not to mention there are some beyond amazing debut novels being released which I have been so excited for since they were announced. This list could have gone on forever, I had more than ten books I could have picked but I kept it to the best of the best.

Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten New-To-Me Authors I Read for the First Time in 2016

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Each week there is a new topic for bloggers to choose and list their top ten. This week’s theme is Top Ten New-To-Me Authors I Read for the First Time in 2016.

I’ve said time and time before that I’m shocked how quickly this year has gone, but looking back some of the books I read seemed like something I picked up last year at least. How was it only March that I started reading Sarah J Maas’s work, and was it seriously June that I started Wolf by Wolf? I was honestly surprised by some of the books I read this year because it feels like I’ve loved them, and the authors who wrote them, forever.

Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Books that Made Me Want to Travel the World

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Each week there is a new topic for bloggers to choose and list their top ten. This week’s theme is Top Ten Things Books Have Made Me Want to Do or Learn About After Reading Them.

I decided to do my own take on this week’s theme and instead I picked; Top Ten Books that Made Me Want to Travel the World.

If you don’t know by now then, other than reading, travel is one of the main loves of my life. I want to see the world and I don’t think I’m ever going to be content in one place. The past few Top Ten Tuesday themes have been filled with travel and books. First there was top ten travel facts about me, then my top ten books that were set outside the US, and now top ten books that made me want to travel. There were more than a few, and this list is a mixture of books that have inspired holidays I’ve been on and books that have made me want to hop on a plane and fly far away.

Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Favourite 2016 Releases So Far

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Each week there is a new topic for bloggers to choose and list their top ten. This week’s theme is Top Ten Favourite 2016 Releases So Far.

I’ve actually read a lot more books released in 2016 than I originally thought. When I first saw this topic on The Broke and the Bookish blog I thought I’d struggle to find ten; but soon I had ten, fifteen, twenty books released this year that I’d read and loved. There are already more than a few competitors for my top read of 2016 and if the books that are due to be released in the second half of the year are even half as good as I think they will be then there will be a lot more favourites come the end of this year.

Myself in Five Characters Book Tag

So before starting this tag I wasn’t sure I could think of one character, let alone five, I shared traits with. However as I looked through the books on my bookshelves and on my Kindle I realised there were more than I thought. Picking one or two traits from each character I could find, before I knew it I had way more than five to choose from and my only issue was narrowing it down.

Myself in Five Characters

I was tagged by Yasaman at Following Muses and Izzi at Ravenclaw Book Club. Thank you both so much for the tag; I had a lot of fun with this one, like I do all the tags I’ve posted so far. Everyone should check out both their original posts and their blogs because they are both amazing people who post really interesting reviews and discussions.

Totally Should’ve Book Tag

I’m a little (a lot) ashamed by how long it’s taking me to get through my tags at the moment. I am steadily working through them I just think in the future I’m going to have to post more each month to make a dent in my queue.

I was tagged in the Totally Should’ve Book Tag by Husfa at The Clockwork Millennial, you should all definitely check out her original post, and while you’re there her blog as well because it is amazing. Thanks so much for the tag as well Husfa, I’d seen this around a lot before I was tagged (not so much after for some reason) so I was really excited to be able to take part and post my own answers.
