Review: The Carpet People by Sir Terry Pratchett

This one was pretty adorable. I decided to buy a copy of The Carpet People after completing Dragons at Crumbling Castle and the passing of Sir Pratchett (they happened at roughly the same time). Dragons at Crumbling Castle was simply adorable (recommended for young readers!) and I was very interested… Read more »

Review: Silver Shark (Kinsmen #2) by Ilona Andrews

Review: Silver Shark (Kinsmen #2) by Ilona Andrews

This right here. I loved this. LOVED. I’m not sure what I was expecting when I started Silver Shark. I’d just finished reading Silent Blade and I *guess* I was expecting it to be more like Silent Blade. Silver Shark both is and is not like Silent Blade. The books… Read more »

Review: Gardens of the Moon (Malazan Book of the Fallen, #1) by Steven Erikson

There are no words. I just don’t have the words to describe this enough to get out a review. I don’t have the words to express my relationship with Gardens of the Moon. I am…my mind is BLOWN. It’s genius. It’s intimidating. The sheer scope of what was going on… Read more »

Review: Silver May Tarnish (Witch World #32: High Hallack Cycle #10) by Andre Norton & Lyn McConchie

This isn’t going to be the best review ever. I’ve read the book too many times. I love this book and this series too much. This book is several books into the Witch World series but it is a stand alone. While it can be read without prior knowledge of… Read more »
