January Favourites

Can you believe it? It’s nearly February! So creating this list has surprised me, turns out 2018 is looking like the year I get back into American tv. I’ve always been a binge watcher of great shows but towards the end of last year I cut them out in favour of completing my Goodreads Reading Challenge.

This Savage Song by VE Schwab – A Review 

Verity is a city split along the Seam, the dividing line between North and South, both sides on the brink of war against the other and both filled with monsters. In the North, Callum Harker reigns victorious, his citizens paying dearly for the protection of an iron medallion to keep the behemoths away. His daughter Kate is more trouble than she’s worth but after getting kicked out of numerous boarding schools over the past six years she is finally back in the city and desperate to prove her metal.

August Flynn is the youngest of the family and is struggling to combine his monstrous needs with his good heart. Both Kate and August feel they know what is right and wrong, but after a botched assassination attempt that forces them on the run, it becomes clear that even they don’t know who the real monsters are.  Continue reading “This Savage Song by VE Schwab – A Review “
