Oh, what a truly stunning book. I’ve read nearly all of Sarah’s books and The Necessity of Rain really shows off her gorgeous writing and heart-breaking stories. Sarah has this incredible way of breaking your heart, and then patching it back up in a way that makes you feel so satisfied.
This is a book that can and should be appreciated by everyone, not just SFF readers.
Sarah’s writing is stunning, it’s beautiful and poetic and she manages to convey such painful, heart-wrenching moments with such tenderness and emotion. I don’t think I’ve ever come across a writer who can do quite what she does with words. The emotion she can convey with her writing is unmatched and I’m never quite sure if I’m mourning or floating when I read her works. My heart is always both so full and so empty.
I’m going to start by saying wow, I was utterly blown away by Sarah Chorn’s lyrical writing. It took me a moment to get used to because it’s such a different writing style to what I usually read, but quickly enough I was swept up in the writing.
Of Honey and Wildfires has a Western-meets-fantasy vibe. There’s the Company who control the entire region where Shine is found, and then there’s the people that live within this territory. These people seem to be lacking in terms of technology and medical care found outside the Company territory. It provides a great backdrop for this stunning story.
Last week while I was doing my usual aimless scrolling through Twitter, I came across a call for any bloggers who wanted to participate in a secret project involving self published books, I knew I had to join in. It turns out that what Jodie from Witty & Sarcastic Book Club has envisioned is a Self-Published Authors Appreciation Week! So, join me today as I run you through 8 self-published books (and a few honorable mentions) that I think you should go ahead and add to your immediate TBR.
Hello all and welcome to FanFiAddict’s monthly list of books we think you should be excited about. We’re a little late in posting this month, but we didn’t want to pass up the opportunity to hype you up on some great science fiction and fantasy releases coming your way. So, without further ado, here’s a bunch of books we think you need to check out this month.
Hello everyone and welcome to the cover reveal for Glass Rhapsody, the sequel to 2020’s Of Honey and Wildfires and follow up to this years companion novella, Oh, That Shotgun Sky. I have absolutely adored both of the books that have been released so far in The Songs of Sefate and I can’t wait for this next entry into the series. Finding Sarah’s work has been one of the great surprises of this year for me, so I am so excited to bring you all a little slice of what is next in line.
Like before, Sarah has managed to sift through the weeds of my soul, take hold of my feelings, and completely rip them from my chest. To be fair to the author, I had an idea of what to expect coming in to this fresh out of her previous novel.
Of Honey and Wildfires is a rather short book, by fantasy standards anyway, weighing in at just over 300 pages. That’s not to say that this is a bad thing. Quite the opposite, in fact, because I don’t think I could have withstood reading much more than that. Let me explain.
Welcome to FanFiAddict’s monthly klaxon horn sounding to draw your attention toward a few Science Fiction and Fantasy releases we think you should keep an eye on. They are listed alphabetically as well as by release date, so a book appearing higher or lower on this list than you expected it to has no relative bearing on our hype-levels nor our expectation of quality. Now, without further ado, strap yourselves in tight, we’re looking to the future (and the future is bright.)
