Book Review : A Letter to the Luminous Deep

Book Review : A Letter to the Luminous Deep

I really wanted to like A Letter to the Luminous Deep—the cover is lovely, the concept is unique, the characters are likable, and the epistolary style is immersive.

And it’s not because A […]

However, after seeing that When […]

Book Review : Emily Wilde’s Encyclopaedia of Faeries

Emily Wilde’s Encyclopaedia of Faeries is a delightful, quirky, and utterly enchanting cozy fantasy.
