Butler to the Dark Lord by Sam Bowring

Butler to the Dark Lord by Sam Bowring

Reviews 1 ★★★★½

Remember the Goosebumps Choose-Your-Own-Adventure books? You'd read them and at the end of every chapter you had to make choices: to go inside the creepy dark tunnel or not, to investigate the noise coming from downstairs or not, to split up from your best-friend to cover more ground at the haunted carnival or not. Each choice changed the story slightly and there were two or three different endings to the book, depending on the choices you made.

Sam Bowring has written a book in a similar format for ADULTS, and I think it's superb!

Words of Radiance by Brandon Sanderson

Words of Radiance by Brandon Sanderson

Reviews 1 ★★★★★

Words of Radiance is absolutely breathtaking, and fantasy fans are missing out if they’re not already reading The Stormlight Archive. I love this story-world and its characters, and am excited because there are eight more books to come! I can’t wait to see what Sanderson dishes up next!

My True Love Gave to Me edited by Stephanie Perkins

My True Love Gave to Me edited by Stephanie Perkins

Reviews 2 ★★★★★

My True Love Gave to Me: Twelve Holiday Stories is one of the cutest anthologies I have ever read. Featuring talented YA authors like Stephanie Perkins (who has also edited the anthology), Laini Taylor, Holly Black and Rainbow Rowell, this book will steal your heart! All the short-stories have Christmas, holidays and romance in common, and all of them will touch readers in some way.

The Ice Dragon by George R. R. Martin

The Ice Dragon by George R. R. Martin

Reviews 3 ★★★★★

A wonderful short story that lacks none of the magic, wonder, and darkness of a GRRM book, The Ice Dragon will capture the imaginations of many readers. Don’t let its small size fool you: just because it’s short and illustrated doesn’t mean it’s a children’s book.

Blood Will Follow by Snorri Kristjansson

Blood Will Follow by Snorri Kristjansson

Reviews 0 ★★★★

Blood Will Follow is a solid second novel and I have enjoyed it. Fans of Gemmell will devour Kristjansson’s books, and I think they’re perfect for fantasy readers who are looking for something new to read. Vikings, mythology, politics, and swords – what could go wrong?
