This Week in Reading: More Magic School, More Dresden, Some DWJ, A Demon Hunting Orc, and Re-reading Kushiel

Wow, so it sounds like I have a lot of my plate this week and that's because of course I do. I have once again committed to a lot of reading, so this week will be a bit of a challenge. First up, finishing up A Warden's Purpose by Jeffrey L. Kohanek. This is one... Continue Reading →


Monthly Wrap Up: May 2018

May was certainly a whirlwind reading month for me. I finished off the month having read twenty-one books. Twenty-one!!! That may be a record for me. (Not counting the time I binge-read about 50 Harlequin romances back in college in a month's time...) It helped that I was on vacation for part of the month... Continue Reading →

Book Review: The Tropic of Serpents by Marie Brennan

It's been a while since I first read the first Lady Trent book, A Natural History of Dragons, a book I liked but never quite fell in love with. I decided to pick up the next one as part of my reading goal to get caught up on series I've started. I'm so glad I did... Continue Reading →

This Week in Reading: More Dragons, More Dresden, Steampunk Geomancy, and Magic Schools

Last week I did a little more reading than I thought I would (oops!) and I'm now listening to the last Memoirs of Lady Trent book, Within the Sanctuary of Wings, by Marie Brennan. Kyyyyaaaah!

There are so many interesting things to talk about in MaddAddam, I'm not even sure where to start. Let's jump in. Summary: A... Continue Reading →

Book Review: Circe by Madeline Miller

Circe by Madeline Miller re-tells the life of the Greek Goddess Circe, making her into a much more sympathetic character. Summary: In the house of Helios, god of the sun and mightiest of the Titans, a daughter is born. But Circe is a strange child--not powerful, like her father, nor viciously alluring like her mother.... Continue Reading →

This Week in Reading: Dragons Ahoy!

I did a great job finishing up my reading from last week and read a few non-fantasy books over the weekend so I'm not going into the week with much planned reading for once. I'm on vacation for most of the week (starting tomorrow) so not sure how much reading I'll actually get into. We'll... Continue Reading →
