Bokturne; The Halfling av Melissa H. North

Image
The Halfling by Melissa H. North Genre: Fantasy
“There are three things I know are certain in my life. Firstly, I am a cursed halfling—part faerie, part human. Another thing I know is I hate faeries. They are deceitful, evil, and conniving. The third thing I know—and it is a certainty—nothing is guaranteed in this life, including your sanity, your family, and your world as you know it.” - Eliana
Eliana finds herself propelled into a world she longs to stay away from; a world where nothing is what it seems. In a race against minds, she must master her magic and fight an unimaginable darkness, stretching throughout the realm of Grandelione. The same darkness that cursed her mother and, now, her half-brother is laying dormant in her too.
It grows stronger with each passing day.
Left with two options, she must choose to fight and bring peace back to Grandelione or plunge into a world of darkness and murder. 
Can she learn to harness her magic and bring peace back to Grandelione and her fa…

Thanks to YA Bound Book Tours I got the opportunity to read The West Woods by Suzy Vadori and here's my review of the book.

Description From Goodreads
Courtney Wallis wants nothing more than to escape St. Augustus boarding school. After uncovering a well-kept secret about the school’s founder, Isaac Young, Courtney turns to the school’s magic to convince her dad to let her leave.

Book Tour & Giveaway; Heart of Time by Sky MacKinnon

Image
Heart of Time Ruined Heart, Book 1 by Sky MacKinnon Genre: Fantasy, Lesbian Romance
For Eona, manipulating time is second nature. It gives her an edge in her dramatic circus performances, but it also separates her from the other artists in her troupe. She has always known that her unique kind of magic could make her a target, but she couldn’t have prepared for being kidnapped, manipulated and imprisoned by a megalomaniac sorcerer. In order to figure out what he wants from her, she needs to explore her own magic, the bond she feels with a mythical creature, and the feelings she has for a certain beautiful elven woman.
There are about twenty illustrations in the book, drawn by artists from all over the world.
