What I read

HerMajesty’s Royal Coven by Juno Dawson.

I got this book anticipating to discover a comfortable, escapist Urban Fantasy about a company of witches that combat criminal offense. Instead, I discovered a bitingly creative, exceptionally pertinent, unflinchingly truthful commentary on a few of the most essential concerns impacting our world today, particularly gender identity, bigotry, and the nature of inclusive feminism.

In the HMRC world, individuals with magic are either witches or warlocks, depending upon their gender. All witches should sign up with the nationwide HMRC coven and follow the standards set down by the huge, effective, reputable company. But where do the witches and warlocks who do not suit these cool classifications truly belong? These concerns are raised in a group of pals who have been there for each other considering that they were kids, however how far can their relationships flex to accommodate arguments on such essential concerns– particularly when a lethal prediction and the life of a kid hang in the balance?

This book is incredibly well done however it was far more extreme than I was anticipating. The author makes some truly informative points and takes all the appropriate positions (the book is emphatically versus transphobia, TERFs, and white supremacy) however it does consist of representations of closed-minded, overtly transphobic, and discreetly racist characters.

It’s extremely, excellent, however I want I had actually remained in a various mindset when I chose it up. I was trying to find a break from the important things that are disturbing me in real truth, however rather I discovered a searing and informative commentary on them.

I prepare to find out more of the series, however I require a break very first.

This series was my very first venture into beast love and wow they are wild. It’s set at an elite independent school for kids of popular beasts and the primary character is Violet Dracula, the famous vampire’s accident-prone blonde child. Some beasts have “Fated mates” who they are predestined to like an are inexorably drawn towards … however could a beast have more than one fated mate?

I have actually never ever check out a book with a lot sex in my life. It’s consistent, it’s innovative, it’s all over all the time. If that troubles you, you will not like these books. That stated … I discovered these books funny. They’re extremely silly, however the absurdity and the primary character’s profane funny bone work for me. It’s an incomplete series that presently ends on a cliffhanger, however I had a good time reading it.

Again I should restate: A LOT SEX. Weird sex. Monster sex. I gasped aloud more than when, and I’m no complete stranger to love books. Be forewarned.
