Welcome back to Scion – The Mime Order Book Tour with exclusive teaser for book 3 and a giveaway!

Oh my goodness! So many exciting things today! Where do I start? This is one of my absolute favourite series. I’ve raved about it both on here and a lot on tumblr. I love it. It is a mix between fantasy and dystopian and it has one of the most interesting magic systems I’ve ever encountered in a book before. The Bone Season follows the story of Paige in a futuristic (but kind of old-timey) London where being a Clairvoyant (or Voyant) is punishable by death. Paige is a Dreamwalker for an underground Voyant crime syndicate, and just by being alive she is breaking the law. And it’s really awesome. So Samantha Shannon, the fabulous author of the amazing The Bone Season series, bless her cotton socks, has written a little teaser for book three for me to share with you all. How I have been deemed worthy for this ultimate honour is beyond me. May I present to you a teaser for the third book in the series, written by Samantha Shannon, herself. TEASER: …

Book Review: The Mime Order by Samantha Shannon

“Some revolutions change the world in a day. Others take decades or centuries or more, and others still never come to fruition. Mine began with a moment and a choice.” What’s it about? The Mime Order is the Sequel to the dystopian fantasy, The Bone Season. The story takes place in an alternate London, called Scion, where clairvoyants (humans with magical abilities) exist, but are hunted down by the government. We follow Paige, a young voyant who works for the underground voyant crime syndicate. In order to avoid spoilers for either The Bone Season, or The Mime Order, this review will be rather short. What did I think? Right off the bat I thought this book exceeded its predecessor, which was also excellent. A lot more of Scion and the Syndicate’s place in the city is revealed, along with more details of the remarkably constructed machinations of the voyants and the aether. We really get to see how beautifully unique and finely constructed the world Samantha Shannon has created is with this novel. This world is …

September Wrap Up + Book Haul

Hello everyone and welcome to October! In September I didn’t get as much reading done as I would have liked, but as I mentioned in my previous post, I have started writing my PhD thesis, so it’s unlikely I will be getting a lot of reading or posting done for the next few months. Probably the most exciting thing here this month was that I got to release the official teaser for the third book in The Bone Season series by Samantha Shannon in Bloomsbury’s The Mime Order blog tour. I could not believe I was chosen for such an honour! Read the teaser post here Also, the giveaway winner has been drawn and contacted!

So that was super exciting! I also got a new lens for my camera, the Lensbaby Spark which takes awesome crazy photos. So you can look forward to some of those next month.

Recom-Monday-tions! The Bone Season by Samantha Shannon

Everyone who knows me on tumblr knows how much I love this series. This series follows the story of Paige in a futuristic (but kind of old-timey) London where being a Clairvoyant is punishable by death. Paige is a Dreamwalker for an underground Voyant crime syndicate, and just by being alive she is breaking the law. I honestly wasn’t expecting to love this book that much, but it has become one of my absolutely favourite series. I am enamoured with it. This series has one of the most richly imagined worlds I’ve ever read, it is completely immersive and so intricately created. I even liked the second book in the series (The Mime Order – review here) even more than the first and I absolutely can’t wait for the next book. You can find it here:  Goodreads. Amazon. The Book Depository. Kobo. (the ebook is usually really cheap too!)

#BRINGBACKTBSCOVERS

So, in case people are not aware, there is a travesty of publishing about to happen… THEY ARE GOING TO CHANGE THE COVERS FOR THE BONE SEASON SERIES BY SAMANTHA SHANNON. YES! These beautiful covers: Anyone who knows me knows that I absolutely LOVE this series to bits. The most exciting moment of blogging EVER was when I got to the release the first official teaser for the third book, The Song Rising. So naturally, I love Bloomsbury, because they gave me that absolutely incredible opportunity to be part of one of my favourite series. And I’ll always love them for that. I review books for them frequently (and hope I continue to do so), and I have a fairly good relationship with the wonderful people working there. But I am pretty damn cranky with this proposed cover change. These are the proposed new covers: What the f**k guys? Seriously? This is the worst cover change I’ve seen since the Across the Universe cover change. And you know what, I never bought the third book in …
