Most Wanted: March 2015

I’m honestly surprised, but I don’t have that many anticipated March titles on my list. Slow month for me? Gives me time to catch up, I suppose! And maybe you can point out some gross oversight on my part 🙂 March 3rd The Storyspinner by Becky Wallace: My review for this went up this week, but yeah.

ARC Book Review: The Storyspinner by Becky Wallace

The Storyspinner came to me recommended by Christina – which is to say that she really liked it, so I figured I would as well. I was correct, of course, because Christina has such spectacular taste. The Storyspinner is a fun fantasy debut with super awesome shiiiiiiips. The Storyspinner and I did get off to a bit of a rough start. There are quite a lot of POV characters, and while they are necessary to show the different storylines and events in different locations, it was just a lot to take in at once.
