THE MIME ORDER - BLOG TOUR - MUSIC

So guys this is the final part of my Mime Order blog tour and after reading the book, I decided for my final post I wanted make almost like a playlist for the book with some music that I really felt suited the story, the world and the relationships, so without further ado here are my choices.

Hearts Without Chains - Ellie Goulding

I picked this because not only does it have a slow and slightly haunting feel to it but it also has this rough yet soft and tender side to it and just listening to the lyrics I feel like they sum up Paige and her situation in a whole song, and I feel there is no better representation for her than this song.




Everybody's Watching Me - The Neighbourhood

This song, I felt fitted, because it's about always being watched by so many people and feeling like you need to get away and hide, and for Paige that is this book. Also the song has very rough and dark vibes that match the slightly darker tone to this book.




A World Alone - Lorde

I picked this, because whil…

THE MIME ORDER - SAMANTHA SHANNON - REVIEW

Book: The Mime Order
Author: Samantha Shannon
Publisher: Bloomsbury
ISBN:
Rating: 10/10

Paige Mahoney has escaped the brutal penal colony of Sheol I, but her problems have only just begun: many of the fugitives are still missing and she is the most wanted person in London. As Scion turns its all-seeing eye on Paige, the mime-lords and mime-queens of the city's gangs are invited to a rare meeting of the Unnatural Assembly. Jaxon Hall and his Seven Seals prepare to take centre stage, but there are bitter fault lines running through the clairvoyant community and dark secrets around every corner. Then the Rephaim begin crawling out from the shadows. But where is Warden? Paige must keep moving, from Seven Dials to Grub Street to the secret catacombs of Camden, until the fate of the underworld can be decided. Will Paige know who to trust? The hunt for the dreamwalker is on.

Breathless. That's how I felt after finishing this book. A year I waited for this book and for something I wai…

A Darker Shade of Magic by V.E. Schwab

Grey London is dirty, boring, lacks magic, ruled by mad King George. Red London is where life and magic are revered, and the Maresh Dynasty presides over a flourishing empire. White London is ruled by whoever has murdered their way to the throne. People fight to control magic, and the magic fights back, draining the city to its very bones. Once there was Black London - but no one speaks of that now.Officially, Kell is the Red Traveler, personal ambassador and adopted Prince of Red London, carrying the monthly correspondences between roya…
