Book Blogger Hop: Negative Reviews

Book Blogger Hop I’ve never done a book blogger hop before (credit for this week’s prompt of “Do You Post Negative Reviews” to Heather @ MM Romance Reviewed). But I saw HC Newton’s post on this and decided to get involved because this is a topic that’s been going around my head for a few […]

Midnight Falcon by David Gemmell

(mild spoilers) By way of introductory remarks, let me state I did not intend to write two reviews today. I find myself compelled to do so by just how bloody good Midnight Falcon is. I have to shout about just how magnificently David Gemmell turned a ripping yarn into something so much more besides while […]

Lords and Ladies by Sir Terry Pratchett

Today I have a wonderful book for you, courtesy of those marvelous Wyrd & Wonder prompts, that being Terry Pratchett’s Lords and Ladies, featuring Granny Weatherwax, Nanny Ogg, Magrat Garlick and many others. Spirit of nature? Why, a book about the lords and ladies themselves might have a few of those in there indeed, and […]

This Is My Genre Tag

I found this tag when the most splendiferous Mayri at Bookforager did it, and quickly decided I like it. It’s short and to the point, and allows you to say interesting things. So it’s time to do it. WHAT’S YER FAVOURITE GENRE? Fantasy. My second favourite genre is probably really bad fantasy. Look, no harm […]

A Wyrd & Wonderful Currently Reading

Today’s Wyrd & Wonder prompt is Current Read, which is one of my favourites, although the posts often get a little long. Happily today, there’s only about ten or so, so let’s get talking about them. Rule of Wolves by Leigh Bardugo Technically I have just finished this, but I was still reading when the […]

Denied The Path In Front Of Them: Bastards in 90s Epic Fantasy

The fantasy genre is well known for it’s liking for characters whose relationship to their parent is in some way unconventional. The orphan is the most common, particularly when linked to the chosen one archetype, and there are a good number of changelings too, but also popular at times is the illegitimate child. In the […]

Fantastic Five: Wyrd & Wonderful Beasts

This week for Wyrd and Wonder’s Fantastic Fives it’s all about magical creatures. Five to be precise: the dragon, the phoenix, Pegasus, the raven and the wolf – creatures that have each stood as mascot for Wyrd and Wonder, or the Spooktastic Reads mini-event, over the years. Dragon There are, unsurprisingly, a lot of options here […]
