Review: A Nameless Witch by A. Lee Martinez

I found A Nameless Witch to be…cute. I liked the MC and I enjoyed the story but it did not pull me in or get me emotionally invested. I enjoyed the way the story turned some tropes upside down – especially the “witchly” tropes. The MC is an accursed witch…so… Read more »

Review: Rex Libris, Volume I: I, Librarian (Rex Libris #1-5) by James Turner

When I learned there was a Librarian themed graphic novel, I had to try it. I know I’m not a fan of graphic novels but I felt confident I’d like this one. Well, I didn’t like this one – but not because it’s a graphic novel. I didn’t like it… Read more »

Review: Dark Lord of Derkholm (Derkholm #1) by Diana Wynne Jones

Review: Dark Lord of Derkholm (Derkholm #1) by Diana Wynne Jones

DNF at 45% I’ve been sitting on Dark Lord of Derkholm for a while now. Initially I really liked it and found it humorous. It reminded me of Pratchett’s DiscWorld a bit (in its humor only). So color me shocked when I ran into a vaguely worded but pretty obvious… Read more »

Review: Resenting the Hero (Hero #1) by Moira J. Moore

Review: Resenting the Hero (Hero #1) by Moira J. Moore

Resenting the Hero in an incredibly interesting book. It’s pretty light and fluffy while still being meaningful, well written and fun. I think Resenting the Hero is an excellent book for a case of book hangover and/or a need of a palate cleasner. The world-building in the Hero series is… Read more »

Review: The Atrocity Archives (The Laundry Files #1) by Charles Stross

  Note: This review is for The Atrocity Archive – the short story included in the book “The Concrete Jungle” will be reviewed separately. How can I describe The Atrocity Archive? What I’ve been telling people thus far is to imagine Sheldon from The Big Bang Theory, take away his… Read more »

Review: The Carpet People by Sir Terry Pratchett

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: Of Swine and Roses by Ilona Andrews

Review: Of Swine and Roses by Ilona Andrews

*sigh* This was so good. Just…so short. 🙁 I’m a greedy reader when it comes to Ilona Andrews and I always want MOAR. 😀 This is a super short-short that *could* be tied into the new Hidden Legacy series. I say “could” because this story was the catalyst for both… Read more »

Review: Dragons at Crumbling Castle by Sir Terry Pratchett

Review: Dragons at Crumbling Castle by Sir Terry Pratchett

Dragons at Crumbling Castle is an adorable selection of short stories and illustrations. This title is a book club pick – it’s a bit younger than I normally care to read – and I’m pretty happy I was introduced to this novel via my book club. There are quite a… Read more »
