Aprille Legacy

I'm a self-published author from South Australia. My first book, Soul Fire, is a YA fantasy romance.

House of Echoes

House of Echoes - Barbara Erskine Reread 2016: If a book ever needed an editor, it was this one. Holy shit. New rating, 1.5 stars

2012: If a book ever needed an epilogue, it was this one.

A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms

A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms - George R.R. Martin, Gary Gianni This was, dare I say, almost fluffy. Enjoyed it despite the confusion that ensues at the end.

Dead Man's Party

Dead Man's Party - A.S. Olsoune Oh my goodness, this sounds like Cluedo in novel form. Awesome!


Dissonance - Erica O'Rourke Great world building, a better-than-usual romance. Minus a star for the technical jargon which got a little heavy in places and made it a bit confusing. Would've liked a dictionary of Walker terms in the back tbh.

But everything aside, highly recommend. The main character is flawed with room for growth and I'm looking forward to reading the sequel.

Dream Forever

Dream Forever - Kit Alloway That cover, omigod

Tempting Death

Tempting Death - Elizabeth  Holloway Very interesting premise - hope it's good!

Loving the cover...

Into the Still Blue

Into the Still Blue - Veronica Rossi 3.5

Ugh, massive book hangover. Maybe that's why I feel a little unsatisfied? A few things I would've liked a bit more time on, a few more thing that could've been way less predictable. I was expecting an epilogue and was surprised when there wasn't one. Room for more books perhaps? Either way, I would've just liked a little more closure.

Through the Ever Night

Through the Ever Night - Veronica Rossi May 2016: love love love love. This book did everything right. Onto the last!! :'(

January 8? Just in time for my birthday! Hooray! *leaps about*




It's sold out. Everywhere near me. -__-


Found this book in Bali of all places. Loved it. I'll read anything and everything this author brings out.


Shift - Kim Curran Not for me unfortunately. DNF

Under the Never Sky (Under the Never Sky #1)

Under the Never Sky (Under the Never Sky #1) - Veronica Rossi Reread May 2016 - still love this book, I need it to be a movie series already

Ok, here we go.

Under the Never Sky is fantastic. It's a brillant idea that is well written with relatable characters.

There is no insta-love. No whiny chick (Aria was pretty kick arse), and no soppy male love interest. I loved Peregrine. He was his own person, not just there to inspire the romance factor.

After watching the book trailer, it annoys me that they focussed on that. I hope to god if there is a movie (which there should be), they don't let those people make it.

Anyway. Contemplating reading this book? Do it. I loved it, and once I started reading in earnest, I couldn't stop. Can't wait to get my hands on the next one.

The Last Orphans

The Last Orphans - N W Harris actual rating 3.5. Enjoyable story.

A Town Called Dust: The Territory 1

A Town Called Dust: The Territory 1 - Justin Woolley This was great. I love reading dystopians set in Australia, and I really liked the Aussie references in this book. Read it in a night and gave myself a headache, but it was totally worth it. Lots of room for character development (and with two more books in the series this is a good position to be in), and hilariously witty writing. I cracked up a few times whilst reading, and narrated passages to my partner.

Deserves way more attention, highly recommended!!

An Unkindness of Ravens (Books of Aerie #1)

An Unkindness of Ravens (Books of Aerie #1) - Jeanette Battista Actual rating 3.5

Review to come


Razorhurst - Justine Larbalestier Actual rating 1.5

The Name of the Wind

The Name of the Wind - Patrick Rothfuss DNFF (did not fucking finish) at 45%


Not a Drop to Drink

Not a Drop to Drink - Mindy McGinnis This is it. Best book of 2016 so far, and it's going to be hard to beat.
It's been a long time since I've struggled to hold back tears (and I did because I knew if I started bawling I wouldn't stop). This book... This book has broken me.
Read it in a few hours, but I know this hangover will last a couple of days. I will read anything this author writes.
