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

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 »
