My favourite kind of book is one where I don’t have to like the characters to find them compelling. Or, to put it another way, I admire authors who write protagonists I dislike but still want to read about, even at 2 in the morning. Such is Letters to the…
This is a stand-alone novel which might be perfect for those looking for a new Australian author to fangirl over! I highly recommend it!!
Isadora is everything I wanted for the last instalment of The Chronicles of Kaya. It was brilliantly written and emotional, and I raced through it in two sittings. Falco and Isadora are probably my favourite pair from this series.
Truthwitch is a quick and fun read that I loved. My excitement regarding Windwitch has been rejuvenated. I think this series will be enjoyed by those who like YA fantasy such as Throne of Glass and Poison Study.
This is the kind of urban fantasy I love – gritty, dark, a little gory, and based on amazing characters whom I couldn’t help but love. This Savage Song highlights the best of Schwab’s writing — awesome story-craft and kick-ass worldbuilding — and introduces us to a world I won’t…
The Pale Dreamer gives us a glimpse of Paige’s life before we met her in The Bone Season, taking us on an adventure through London after some poltergeists. It’s an excellent entry point for readers who are interested in The Bone Season series and want to give it a try….
I enjoyed Aerie a lot. It’s different enough from Magonia that it doesn’t suffer from second-book syndrome but keeps true to the things I loved about the first instalment. I’ll be back for more (if there is more!) and recommend it to those who enjoyed Magonia or like Neil Gaiman’s works.
I’ve had a wonderful, wonderful time with Cinder, Scarlet, Cress and Winter, and I’m sad to let them go … but I do have the novellas in Stars Above to look forward to! The idea of blending science fiction, fairy tales, and Sailor Moon may sound odd (I was sceptical at first), but I urge readers to give the series a chance. I don’t think you’ll regret it.
I loved Thorne. This story world has grown on me and I’ve come to respect McConaghy’s storytelling. I love her characters and her prose, and am looking forward to reading Isadora in August.
I am a huge fan of this world, and of the six brilliant individuals who helped save it. I have enjoyed every page, every moment, of my journey in the Starbound world and am sad to see it go.
