Cloudwish interview q

Hey guys! I have a super duper special author on the blog today – she’s one of my favourite Aussie authors of ever, and her name is Fiona Wood. She has written Six Impossible Things and Wildlife, and coming out on September 1st (TOMORROW!!) is Cloudwish.

Why Graffiti Moon isn’t more well-known I do not know, because it’s honestly fantastic. I picked this up on a lazy afternoon spent reading in the sun, thinking I might like it.

The amount of twists Kinslayer occupies makes me wonder how I will progress through writing this review. This book twisted my guts. (I uPUNagise) This book twisted my brain till all it could do was react with fangirling squeals. It’s no lie that I wasn’t exactly expecting a wow-factor after finishing this read; Stormdancer was difficult in terms of long descriptions and awkward sentence structure and redundancy. Nonetheless, despite a few small flaws, Kinslayer has redeemed my love for this series and […]
