A Curse So Dark and Lonely – Brigid Kemmerer [Review]

I read this book immediately after The Queen of Nothing, hoping it would fill the hole left by Holly Black’s fantastic end to an amazing trilogy. And it did…but after finishing it, that hole now feels twice as big. Luckily, this series is still ongoing, and the sequel is out in January, so seems like IContinue reading “A Curse So Dark and Lonely – Brigid Kemmerer [Review]”

Twisted Tales: Let It Go – Jen Calonita

The Twisted Tales series are stories about films and characters we know and love from Disney films, but putting one twist into the story that either changes everything, gives something additional in the middle, or extends the story beyond the familiar endings.

Dangerous Women – Edited by George R.R Martin & Gardner Dozois [Books]

I always find it exciting, to open up a new anthology. To discover what stories wait inside, whether it’s a genre-specific anthology covering different themes, or a themed anthology covering different genres. Dangerous Women falls into the latter camp, with stories here ranging from fantasy to sci-fi to horror to historical. And they’re good, though with theContinue reading “Dangerous Women – Edited by George R.R Martin & Gardner Dozois [Books]”

Circe – Madeline Miller [Books]

Sometimes, you read a book that is so wonderfully and beautifully written, with heaps of description aiding the characters and plot, that it feels like you really are transported to the novel’s location. Circe is, without a doubt, one of those books. Circe is the daughter of a Titan and a nymph, but lacks theContinue reading “Circe – Madeline Miller [Books]”
