This Week in Reading: Finishing up Space Opera, more time with Greek Gods, Plastic Magicians, and a Near Future Robotic Sports Murder Mystery

This week should be a really fun week in reading for me. I'm finishing up Space Opera by Catherynne Valente.

Book Review: The Paper Magician Series by Charlie N. Holmberg

I read this entire series in three days time so I'm going to talk about all three books here in one big review. The fact that I read them all so quickly will probably give you a head's up on how much I enjoyed reading these. Spoiler: I liked them a lot. The Paper Magician... Continue Reading →
