I’ve been feeling the urge to try another book subscription box (or two). Before I start getting flooded with recommendations (who doesn’t love promoting their favorite box): I’m trying to stick to US/CA boxes to reduce shipping times and costs. Continue reading

Review: Heat Wave by T.J. Klune

Heat Wave is the third and final novel in T.J. Klune’s The Extraordinaries series. If you wandered across this story after finding (and falling in love with) The House in the Cerulean Sea, then you better prepare yourself because this is a totally different beast. T.J. Klune is the master at changing voices. Continue reading

Review: Steelstriker by Marie Lu

Steelstriker is the second and final novel in Marie Lu’s Skyhunter series. It feels odd to be saying goodbye to these characters so quickly, but I’d rather see the story get a proper ending. Continue reading

Short Story Saturday: Blocked by Seanan McGuire

The short stories within Seanan McGuire’s InCryptid series are plentiful, for which I am grateful. Blocked is my most recent read and the first short story to give Antimony Price the lead. This is set following the second novel in the series – so before Antimony even got her own novel. Continue reading

Short Story Saturday: What was I meant to do? By Seanan McGuire

What was I meant to do? Is another short story written by Seanan McGuire, and it fits in her InCryptid series. It’s set between the events of the first and second novels (Discount Armageddon and Midnight Blue-Light Special), but it doesn’t follow any of the main characters that we’re used to. Continue reading

Review: Dark Avengers: The Patriot List: A Marvel: Untold Novel by David Guymer

It’s here! The next Marvel book is here, and I couldn’t be more excited for it. Dark Avengers: The Patriot List is a bit of a long title – yet it is an evocative one for anybody paying attention. Written by David Guymer, it’s a quintessential Dark Avengers novel. Continue reading

Short Story Saturday: The Lay of the Land by Seanan McGuire

Seanan McGuire’s InCryptid series is far from over, and I’m far from getting through all of her short stories! Next up on the list is The Lay of the Land, the first Alice-centric short in this world. Alice is the daughter of Fran and Jonathan Healy and a familiar character to those that have read the main series. Continue reading

Fans of the tale of Sleepy Hollow are surely curious about Christina Henry’s take on the matter, Horseman. Christina Henry is well known for her fairytale retellings, usually with a horror twist, and that is why I just knew I had to give this book a try. Continue reading
