Review: THE SPRING OF THE RAM (HOUSE OF NICCOLO #2)

And so it begins, and so once again Dear Dorothy has proven me wrong. Remember what I, in blissful ignorance have claimed after reading the prequel: that this series was great, but could never be as breathtaking and extraordinary as the Lymond Chronicles. I take it back. It can be as good, and this installment is as good: this is another testament to my favourite author’s brilliance.

Review: THE MIDNIGHT LIBRARY

If I compare it to The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue – and I have to compare it to Addie LaRue – yes, the basic concept, the idea behind this book totally worked for me. It hooked me. But while I was head over heels in love with The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue, my feelings for this one are lukewarm at best. Why? Because I am in love with the concept, nothing more.

Review: ROTHERWEIRD (ROTHERWEIRD #1)

Rotherweird’s setting, characters, and writing style are a magnificent mixture of Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell, Stranger Things, and Doc Martin. It has that amazing combination of the charm of a rural British town, it has the witty, keen look at each individual character that lives in this town, and it has that mysterious vibes of somethiny otherworldly going on unnoticed. Something dangerous, something creepy- I LOVE IT.

Review: SENLIN ASCENDS (THE BOOKS OF BABEL #1)

So. I finally read this. Many thanks go out to everyone who kept recommending this one to me because reading this has been a joy. The first couple of chapters were just okay, but once Thomas Senlin entered the Parlor, this had me hooked.
