Overall, if you’re looking for a quick, fun read, I’d recommend Tread of Angels.
Three Mini Reviews in One
Hello again dear reader or listener, I hope you are well!
Seen as I haven’t brought any reviews for your reading pleasure in a while, but I’ve also struggled to sit and write my usual long form ramblings because of reasons, I thought I’d try something a little different and present three mini reviews in one.
A Fantasy, a Gothic Romance, and a Romcom.

Blog Tour Review: Essex Dogs (Essex Dogs #1) by Dan Jones
Essex Dogs is a triumphant novel, full of moments, people and ideas that will stick with me for a very long time.
The Book Eaters by Sunyi Dean
I want to thank MacMillan Audio for the advanced copy of the audiobook via NetGalley, in exchange for an honest review.
I am not sure what I was expecting going into this read but I was beyond surprised and thoroughly enjoyed this book from start to finish.
Indie Accords Wrap-Up
This post will wrap-up each of the books I read, but I’ve also already written Goodreads blurbs and will be posting up Amazon reviews too. Amazon especially is such an important platform for Indie/Self-Pub authors so if you’re not posting reviews on Amazon, I highly recommend doing so at least for the Indie reads. Also these are in order that I read them, not in order I preferred them. All of these books were incredible and I continue to be blown away by each self-pub book I read.
Cover Reveal: The Children of Chaos (The Cruel Gods #2) by Trudie Skies
A huge thanks for Trudie for reaching out the community for help with the cover reveal! Since I finished book #1, The Thirteenth Hour, I’ve been so excited to get more.

Book Tour: Moroda (World of Linaria #1) by L.L. MacRae
I am so happy to be a part of this tour. I, like many others, were first exposed to L.L. MacRae’s writing through her SPFBO 7’s semi-finalist The Iron Crown. I was immediately hooked and needed more so when I saw she was re-releasing Moroda, I knew I had to get in on this tour. […]
Review: The Book of the Ice (#1-3) by Mark Lawrence
A bit of background, Book of the Ice takes place in the same world as one of Mark Lawrences’ previous trilogies: Book of the Ancestor. I have read Book of the Ancestor as well as two other trilogies from Mark Lawrence: The Broken Empire and The Red Queen’s War.
Review: Legends and Lattes by Travis Baldree
This book is, at the end of it all, like a written relaxing afternoon in a coffee shop. It’s charming and it’s fun. There’s a real time and a place for Legends and Lattes and I’m really glad I found it.
Book Tour Guest Post: Dust of a Moth’s Wing by R. Ramey Guerrero
Today we have a Guest Post from the author of Dust of Moth’s Wing tour with Escapist Tours. I was immediately drawn into the unique race that the author created and wanted to dig a bit deeper into that with this question! First a bit about the book and the author though, I highly encourage […]
Review: Under Fortunate Stars by Ren Hutchings
It’s a sit down and savor sci-fi that reads like one of the Star Trek episodes where they get stuck in some temporal anomaly and spend the entire time doing sciencey stuffs until they get free at the last minute.
Review: Rememory by Frasier Armitage
Armitage’s tightly packed sprint down memory lane is an unmissable sci-fi surge. It’s definitely not something to forget.
Review: Mercury Rising by R.W.W. Greene
A neo-retrofuturistic fest that looks at humanity through a curious lens while an alien menace has guns that go ZARK!
Book Tour: Where Shadows Lie by Allegra Pescatore
Synopsis The Chosen One is Dead. Disabled since childhood, his little sister never expected the weight of a crown. Now, she might lose it before ever sitting on the throne. Beset by rebels, scheming politicians, and cutthroat bankers, Elenor must choose between accepting her father’s despotic rule or risking everything for her late brother’s lofty […]
Author Q&A: R.W.W. Greene – Author of Mercury Rising

SPFBO 7 Finalist Review: The Forever King (Scalussen Chronicles #1) by Ben Galley
From Tyra Leann: The more self-published books and SPFBO finalists that I read, the more I continue to be blown away by the level of creativity that flourishes in this community. It’s amazing the level of talent and ingenuity that exists outside the confines of traditional publishing. I think all of the finalists this year are incredible in their own rights. Here are some of our thoughts on The Forever King, the official synopsis of the book, and our final rating.
SPFBO 7 Finalist Review: The Mortal Blade (Magelands Eternal Siege #1) by Christopher Mitchell
From Tyra Leann: I think all of the SPFBO finalists this year are incredible in their own rights, and it has been such a joy to read them. Here are some of the FanFiAddict team’s thoughts on The Mortal Blade, the official synopsis, and our final rating.
Review: The Blood of Outcasts (The Bane Sword Trilogy #1)
There’s a lot to love about TBoO, especially its acronym, but it’s an incredibly bloody, gritty, ronin romp that’s well worth checking out.

A big thank you to HL Tinsley for allowing FFA to host the cover reveal for The Hand That Casts the Bone (The Vanguard Chronicles #2).

Review: Legacy of the Brightwash (Tainted Dominion #1) by Krystle Matar
It’s very rare that I am at a genuine loss for words once I’ve turned the last pages of a book, but that was the exact situation I found myself in after finishing Krystle Matar’s Legacy of the Brightwash. This story is incredible in so many ways and I will try to capture and articulate it in this review, but I make no promises.
Review: Threadlight Trilogy by Zack Argyle
Overall, I am so incredibly happy to have spent time in the world that Zack Argyle has crafted and I cannot wait to read whatever is next.
Review: The Hunger of the Gods (The Bloodsworn Saga #2) by John Gwynne
This is an incredible sequel and I cannot understate that enough. Everything that was great about book one somehow only improved in book two.
Review: Jade City (Green Bone Saga #1) by Fonda Lee
Synopsis The Kaul family is one of two crime syndicates that control the island of Kekon. It’s the only place in the world that produces rare magical jade, which grants those with the right training and heritage superhuman abilities. The Green Bone clans of honorable jade-wearing warriors once protected the island from foreign invasion–but nowadays, […]
Review: The Legend of the Dream Giants by Dustin Hansen
This is a heartfelt fable with a pure message and has been a really enjoyable surprise for 2022.
FanFiAddict’s Recommendation Station
During TBRCon, there was some chatter about books that need a bigger audience and I took it to heart. When I first began blogging, yeah, I’ll admit it: I was only reading the big names so I could join the conversation and be one of the cool kids. Over the past several years, I myself […]
Review: Mickey7 by Edward Ashton
Barnes’ shithousery makes for an entertaining and likeable protagonist, the premise is original and excellent, plus the fact I had to scrabble to find two comp titles should give a good indication of what a breath of fresh air Mickey7 is to read!

Review: New Yesterday by Frasier Armitage
The literary equivalent of paddling in a dingy at the shallow end before being sucked into a riptide and finding yourself white water rafting … but with added time travel!
Author Chat: Malka Older
The Mimicking of Known Successes is a sci-fi take on Sherlock Holmes that works brilliantly as a thoughtful, hopeful, futuristic mystery, and Malka Older is the genius behind it. I got the chance to sit down with Malka and talk to her about what went into writing the book, what draws her to sci-fi, how […]

Review: New Yesterday by Frasier Armitage
I think you can tell that I was completely and utterly blown away by New Yesterday. Frasier keeps up a fast pace throughout and I found myself breathlessly reading to see what would happen and how Adam would get himself out of various situations. I have zero idea how Frasier kept track of all the changes and managed to make it so clear to the reader how changing the past influences the world around Adam, especially once Adam starts remembering…
