House of Styx by Derek Kûnsken ARC Book Review

The House of Styx

Welcome to this book review,
Disclaimer: I received a copy of this book in exchange of an honest review.
This book was a surprise, while it took me about a dozen pages or so to get into it once I was into it, I only wanted to know more about it. The world was captivating and the story was really well thought out.
It touches so many subjects, like family, gender identity, love, politics and will make you cry.
I loved that it happened on Venus or well on it's cloud , it was a really original and beautifully writen book, a great start to a new series. As a Québécoise it was really lovely to be represented in a futuristic world.
I can't wait to read where the next book will take us into this world. 
I only wanted more resolution for some conflit, plot line points, I felt like a little resolution could've pushed it to be even better as this was a first book and had to keep us hooked on it. Overall great book that is totally worth the read.
4/5 stars

Boyfriend Material by Alexis Hall ARC Book Review

Boyfriend Material by Alexis  Hall Welcome to this ARC review,
Disclaimer (as per usual) I received an ARC of this book but it does not affect my opinion of this book.

Boyfriend material was exactly what I needed after dabbling in a couple fantasy worlds both in fanfictions, books, movies and video games. I really enjoy Alexis Hall's writing, as I had read another work by this author previously, so I went into this read pretty confident that I would enjoy it. And surprise, surprise, I did. It was everything I needed after hours of long exams, fluffy cute and romantic, not to say that it did not make my eyes water because I was laughing too loud (as this book was hilarious and filled with british humour) and because of all the FEELS I was feeling.
The story line in itself did not have much happening for it, which is why I cannot give this book 5 stars, however the chemistry between our two main characters and emotions you felt for these character made that not as much as an issue as I would've normally have had.
This is simply a perfect summer, or anytime really, read; I would highly recommend you pick this up for you and all your friends. This is not a steamy read, as some of his other works are, this is a more traditional,  one could say, contemporary with a focus on romance (with some well handled angst).
I will be reading it physically sometime soon as it was a pre-order since it had been announced; this is how much I enjoyed this book.
Just aaaahhh all the feels and you just keep rooting for them all the way through this book. 4/5 stars Bookarina
