Review: Tooth and Claw by Jo Walton

****Trigger warnings for death of a parent, mentions of rape and sexual abuse, child abandonment, cannibalism (dragons eating dragons), estrangement and death of an infant**** So over this year, I’ve been taking note of my reading tastes and particular trends I go through. I’m very much a mood reader at heart but I do know…

Review: The Wee Free Men by Terry Pratchett

So I’ve finally started the Tiffany Aching books and my heart isn’t ready. Welcome back to the Discworld project friends! Now as many might know, or many don’t possibly, I started this project with the intent to read all of the Discworld books and also chose to follow them in publication order. This is my…

Review: The House in the Cerulean Sea by T.J Klune

***Trigger warnings: Mentions of child abuse, child neglect, bullying and anxiety. More details on rep detailed here *** SFF as a whole doesn’t have many stories that I myself would call uplifting. Of course they are there to be sought out! Becky Chambers’s Wayfarers series is often referred to as “hope punk’ for the optimistic…

Review: I Am Not Starfire by Mariko Tamaki and Yoshi Yoshitani

For all my talk about comics, weekly pull lists and retweets about new, upcoming series, it’s actually been a minute since I reviewed and comics or graphic novels here on the blog! So it’s no secret I’m a fan of DC comics. I am however always aware of where they can improve. Over the years,…

Now, with the once fertile lands and its enslaved people dying around him, the Witch-King, driven by…

Review: An Unkindness of Magicians by Kat Howard

****Trigger warnings for blood letting, murder, death of a parent (off page), child neglect/abandonment, self harm and murder.**** It’s been a while since I went off the beaten track SFF wise and just picked up a book on a whim. I’m aware of Kat Howard’s work mostly because of her run on The Books of…

Review: Half-Off Ragnarok by Seanan McGuire

Over the year, I’ve been slowly reading my way through Seanan McGuire’s Incryptid series and it’s really been a gateway for me back into urban fantasy. I sadly couldn’t get to this book, the third in the series, until now just due to life, work and being a human. While my opinion of the last…

Review: Men at Arms by Terry Pratchett

Welcome back to the Discworld Project and the mess that is my emotions. I’ve been reading Terry Pratchett’s work for a while now and this project is going nearly 2 years. I’ve come to expect certain levels of gut punches but this one hit in a different way. ‘Be a MAN in the City Watch!…

Review: Deathless by Catherynne M.Valente

So if it’s something I love, is a weird, polarising book. All the better if it’s something of a retelling or incorporates elements of folklore and stories past. I generally go out of my way to find them and not until I moved earlier this year did I realise that Deathless was one of those…
