My Top Ten All-Time Favorite Fantasy Series

Books | September 13, 2016

This is a meme from The Broke and the Bookish. For info about the topics and how to participate, click here. My challenge for this week’s topic was basically to get to 10 books without needing to cheat. For a contemporary genre, that was absolutely hopeless.

Book Reviews | March 24, 2013

Shadow and Bone… what took me so long? Considering how much I love a good fantasy, it’s kind of embarrassing how long it took me to get around to this one. This was not just a good fantasy – it was a great one. I thoroughly enjoyed myself. The blurb on the cover by Veronica Roth reads, “Unlike […]
