WWW Wednesday – 20th October 2021

I’ve also added a section where I look ahead to November and see what books I’ll be plucking from my TBR! If you’ve read any ofContinue reading “WWW Wednesday – 20th October 2021”

Book Review – The Shadow of the Gods by John Gwynne

I’ve been on a roll recently! Another great book filled my ‘thought-cage’ last week and I really really loved the new world that John Gwynne has created! Being a huge fan of The Faithful and the Fallen series, I was very excited to read this book. I love Norse mythology and I was sure thatContinue reading “Book Review – The Shadow of the Gods by John Gwynne”

Book Review – Senlin Ascends by Josiah Bancroft (spoiler-free)

What a wonderfully eccentric book. It’s not my usual fantasy fare. On first glance it seemed too modern, too steampunk-esque, the main character is a prudish school teacher who looses his wife. The blurb didn’t overly sell it, I have to be honest. However, a discord group I am a part of decided to readContinue reading “Book Review – Senlin Ascends by Josiah Bancroft (spoiler-free)”

Book Review – Emperor of Thorns/Broken Empire (with spoilers)

I don’t usually do spoilery reviews, but once you get to the third book in a trilogy, I think there is little point in shielding the reader from the story. Anyone who hasn’t read Prince of Thorns won’t want to read this anyway – and I think it would be nice to delve into theContinue reading “Book Review – Emperor of Thorns/Broken Empire (with spoilers)”

Book Review – The Blade Itself by Joe Abercrombie (spoiler free)

I first read this for the first time in 2014 – about a year after I had my second baby. A year of sleep deprivation ensued. My oldest son didn’t like to go to sleep and my youngest had night terrors almost every night. Being able to read The Blade Itself became a fantasy inContinue reading “Book Review – The Blade Itself by Joe Abercrombie (spoiler free)”
