2018 Beat The Backlist Challenge - My TBR

The "BEAT THE BACKLIST" Challenge is hosted by Austine at Novel Knight Book Reviews and it focuses having participants pick up the books that have been on their TBR for far too long which is perfect for me considering my TBR is growing like Jack's beanstalk and many MANY old releases have gotten pushed aside. The challenge runs throughout the year and participants can share their progress on social media using the hashtag #beatthebacklist . The complete challenge details can be found here. There is also a Bookstagram challenge you can participate in if you're on there!

Review: Rani Padmavati: The Burning Queen

Rani Padmavati: The Burning Queen by Anuja Chandramouli

(I received a free copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.)

Padmavati is the most beautiful queen Chittor has ever had. Everyone who sees her is enthralled by her grace and goodness. When the greedy gaze of the Sultan ofDelhi, Alauddin Khalji, falls upon Chittor and its queen, Padmavati’s flawless beauty turns against her, because it inspires both love and hate in equal measure.Beset by the threat of an invasion and scheming political rivals who are envious of her immense popularity, Rani Padmavati must rise to the demands of war and fight for everything she believes in. This is the story of a remarkable woman who lived gently, loved passionately and embraced her destiny with unmatched courage.

Review: Heart of the Fae by Emma Hamm

Heart of the Fae by Emma Hamm

(I received a free copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.)

Once upon a time…

A plague sweeps across the emerald hills of Uí Néill, leaving a young midwife’s father with months to live. To save her people, Sorcha makes a deal with a dangerous Fae. She must travel across the sea, through merrow and kelpie lands, to find a forgotten king on a crumbling throne.

Born king of the Seelie Fae, Eamonn fought battles unnumbered to uphold honor, duty, and freedom… until his twin brother sank a blade between his shoulders. Crystals grew from the wound, splitting open skin and bone. His people banished him to a cursed isle for his disfigurement, now king of criminals and fools.

With the help of brownies, pixies, and will-o’-the-wisps, Sorcha battles to break through his crystalline shell and persuade him to take back his stolen throne.

This determined beauty could come dangerously close to stealing his beastly heart.
