Book Review : The Serpent and the Wings of Night

Book Review : The Serpent and the Wings of Night

I’ve been hearing about The Serpent and the Wings of Night for what feels like ages, so I finally decided to give it a try, as I really needed a pick-me-up/fun read. To my surprise, I really had a lot of trouble getting into this book and even started and finished two other books before coming back to this one and completing it. Despite the pause in between, I still […]

Book Review : Gods of the Wyrdwood

Book Review : Gods of the Wyrdwood

Gods of the Wyrdwood is an interesting and rather dark fantasy novel.

Book Review : Sorcery of Thorns

Book Review : Sorcery of Thorns

I absolutely love Sorcery of Thorns and it is one of my all time favorite books. Even with this second reading of the novel, I adore the setting, the magic system, the three main characters, the romance, the humor, and the plot. Sorcery of Thorns revolves around main character Elisabeth, an orphan who grew up in a Great Library, who gets wrapped up in a conspiracy that could destroy everything […]
