Lady Midnight is the first book in The Dark Artifices trilogy which was published in 2016. If you’ve read Clare’s previous Shadowhunter books, most notably The Mortal Instruments Series, which was also adapted for film, you’ll love reading this book. Clare creates an immersive, supernatural world that is a boon of escapism.

The scene is being set for the gathering of the Conclave of Mages, where sorcerers throughout the four kingdoms will gather on the Isle of Thanedd to discuss political affairs and the threat of war from the land of Nilfgaard. Meanwhile a rebellion is brewing that will divide the Council concerning the fate of Ciri, an exiled princess, Witcher-in-training and prophetic child of the Elder blood.
Cornwall maintains the action filled momentum of The Last Kingdom in this sequel novel, with a lively and animated plot that was consistent throughout the book. I enjoyed the rawness of the story-telling which complemented the book’s historical setting, during an age of battles, war and rebellion.
I just posted my Booktube review of The Tattooist Of Auschwitz by Heather Morris. View it here and tell me in the comments if you have read this book before and what you thought about it.
I feel no review on such as book as Gone With The Wind would be complete without some form of commentary of the slavery situation that was prevalent in those days. This book offered invaluable insight into the plight that black people faced under the tyranny of the Old South

Today, I’d thought it would be fun to try doing a video review and as such I finally posted my very first Youtube video to my channel @loiscudjoe
This book is truly unputdownable. I was hooked from the very outset and deeply moved not just from the horrors that occurred but also from Lale’s arresting romanticism and determination.
I’m extremely excited to have been selected as an ambassador for LoveReading UK, the UK’s leading book recommendation website.
The story-telling is undeniably seamless. I loved the picture of excess that Kwan drew when he spoke of manicured gardens, gowns of iridescent silk and silver-leaf latticework.
My classic read of the month is Gone With The Wind by Margaret Mitchell, a book that I have long avoided given the sheer length of it.
