Double ARC Review | Across the Green Grass Fields (Wayward Children #6) & Wider Than the Sky ☁️

☁️ Hi, guys! I hope you’re having an incredible day full of good readings and beautiful moments!❤️ Thank you, thank you, thank you for always being there for me, you’re just wonderful. 🥺 Today I come with a double review of two ARCs that I was really excited about, but while I enjoy one of them not so much the other one, so we’ll have a lot to talk about today. As always, I’m extremely grateful to the publishers and ARCs programs such as NetGalley & Edelweiss+ for giving me the possibility of reading these books and being able to share my thoughts freely. 🥰
One of these books is a new book in a series that I love with my heart, which is always surrounded by magic, a unique writing style, and diverse characters & on the other hand we have a new author for me, in what I think it’s her debut book, a solid promise but kind of poor execution, we’ll talk more about it. 🙌🏻 
I hope you enjoy the reviews and that you decide to share your thoughts with me in the comments, you know I LOVE knowing what you think about these new releases! 🌻 Without further ado, this will be an interesting post… so LET’S GET STARTED!

Double ARC Review | A Curse of Ash and Embers & A Curse of Roses

 🌿 Hi, guys! I hope you’re having the most wonderful day by the hand of the most incredible readings.❤️ Today I’m more than happy to bring you a double review of two great books that I’ve read this month, and that I also have the pleasure to say have been ARCs, so THANK YOU SO MUCH to Edelweiss+ & NetGalley for the opportunity to read them. Before starting I want to say THANK YOU my loves for all the support that you have been giving me in my posts, little by little I’m catching up, so I promise you that if you’ve commented on my blog at some point, I will be checking your blog soon and anyway I’m determined to visit as many book bloggers as I can, so don’t worry, I’ll end up visiting you, because you deserve the love, and you’re wonderful. I also want to remind you that I’m working on a project where I’m making a list here on my blog with as many book bloggers as I can, so if you want to participate then write to me in THIS POST or wherever place you want, and I will add you. 😍
Now, going back to today’s post, I have two very magical books to share with you, I’ve enjoyed both very much and although I don’t think they’re perfect, I believe that the failures are really superficial and don’t overshadow these great stories about curses and folklore. On the one hand, we have
A Curse of Ash and Embers (Tales of the Blackbone Witches # 1) by Jo Spurrier, a highly atmospheric book made to devour quickly, it’s a super interesting story with great female power behind & on the other hand, we have A Curse of Roses by Diana Pinguicha which is a story that also revolves around a curse where our main character turns everything she eats into flowers and although it sounds almost poetic, it has been a nightmare for her, so she’ll undertake a journey to find a solution, highly based in Portuguese myths and I’ve loved that.
I hope you enjoy the post and decide to add these books to your TBR! Now, without further ado, let’s get started.

Their parents are all clear on one point–not going is not an option. This could be the opportunity to get back into Grandmother’s good graces. But when the cousins arrive on the island, it’s immediately clear that she has different plans for them. And the longer they stay, the more they realize how mysterious–and dark–their family’s past is.

The entire Story family has secrets. Whatever pulled them apart years ago isn’t over–and this summer, the cousins will learn everything.

ARC Review | Fantastic Tales of Nothing by Alejandra Green & Fanny Rodriguez

TitleFantastic Tales of Nothing

By: Alejandra Green & Fanny Rodriguez

SeriesMaybe

Pages: 320

PublishedNovember 17th, 2020

By: Katherine Tegen Books

Genre: Middle Grade – Fantasy – Magic – Graphic Novel

Buy itBook Depository | Amazon


In the first book of this full-color fantasy graphic novel series filled with humor and hijinks, the fate of the land of Nothing hinges on Nathan and an unlikely team of magical beings to save the day—perfect for fans of Amulet and Estranged.

Welcome to Nothing! Despite its name, this is a fantastic land where humans and magical volken coexist peacefully—at least they try . . .

This is the tale of Nathan, an ordinary human (or so he thinks) living an ordinary life (or so he wishes). Everything changes when he meets Haven, a mysterious creature who is neither human nor volken. Oh, and the two of them are being chased by volken mercenaries—a grumpy wolf named Bardou and a delightful crow named Sina.

Nathan soon learns he has mysterious powers, even though humans aren’t supposed to have magic. But there’s no time to dwell on that because this discovery sets the group on a perilous quest across windswept terrain, through haunted forests, and in ancient tombs. Nathan and his unlikely friends must prevent an impending war and defeat a dark evil to save their land.

No pressure, of course. If they fail, everything will turn into, well . . . nothing.

With her brother Elias by her side, she escapes to the distant city of Stynos, where rumour has it a possible ally is waiting… An ally who might help Kaylan control the violent magic that’s become her burden to bear.

But Kaylan can’t hide forever – not from the forces that surround her, or from the darkness inside herself. Rebel leader Bellamy seeks her help to destroy a regime; Captain Thorn pursues her with a vengeance; and as her power grows, her inner demons begin to seep through the cracks…

Kaylan may be strong, but is she strong enough to resist the Relic?

Riven is the engrossing second instalment in Bronwyn Eley’s dark YA fantasy series, The Relic Trilogy.
