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 →

This Week in Reading: Finishing up Maddaddam, Visiting with Lady Trent, more Sorcerous Siblings, and Magic Cabals

I'm finishing up two books from last week and then starting some new things. I'm about halfway through Maddaddam on audio and I have to say, I'm loving it even though it's just as--if not more--weird than the first two books in Margaret Atwood's Maddaddam trilogy. So. Much. Blue. Dong. Waving all around. A lot.... Continue Reading →

This Week in Reading: Plastic Magician, Spending Time with Harry Dresden, Some DysLit from Atwood, and Sorcerous Siblings

Last week was a great week in reading (even if it did take me a little longer to get through Space Opera than I anticipated) and this week looks to be pretty interesting and eclectic. First upĀ  The Plastic Magician by Charlie N. Holmberg. I didn't get a chance to delve into this one last... Continue Reading →

Book Review: The Poppy War by R.F. Kuang

Thanks to the publisher and Netgalley for providing me with a copy for review, this did not affect my opinion of the book in any way. So, I finished this about a week and a half ago and I had to sit and percolate on this one before gathering my thoughts to write a proper... Continue Reading →

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. I'm about a third of the way through and so far it's been a fun read filled with wry humor. For a book that's about an intergalactic song contest it touches a lot on the... Continue Reading →

This Week in Reading: More Young Assassin’s Seeking Vengeance, Brass Cities, Eurovision in Space, and Greek Gods

So, this week I'm finishing up on audio Godsgrave by Jay Kristoff. This is the second installment in The Nevernight Chronicle, the story of a young girl trained to be an assassin who is out to avenge her murdered family. I'm about 60% of my way through and enjoying it so far. The narration continues... Continue Reading →
