 Of course when I decide I’m going to join a start posting Top 5 Wednesdays on occasion, I pick the time it goes on hiatus for the summer (June, July, August). While there may be no new prompts, it means I get to explore some of the ones I have missed. For all the info you need to join, checkout the Goodreads group HERE. Continue reading “Top 5 Wednesday”

Shards – A Story of The Realm by Ben Galley

HELL YES

Shards by Ben GalleyI loved The Heart Of Stone, it’s a heart-wrenching book that just punches you in the face with brutality and feels, plus world building and characters that suck you right in. The hardest part about finishing THOS was the devastation of leaving Lesky and Task. I’m pretty sure in my review, which you can find HERE, I said that I hoped at some point Galley would write more in this world. There was such a treasure trove of characters and history that he could have gone forward or backwards in time and come up with something brilliant.
Well it turns out he already had, I just hadn’t found it yet. Continue reading “Shards – A Story of The Realm by Ben Galley”

Touch Of Iron by Timandra Whitecastle

‘She grinned in the dark and clutched her knife. The knife was always there. Touch of iron. Touch of home.’

I read a lot of fantasy. A LOT of fantasy. I like my fantasy dark. Give me a bleak world, give me a broken down government, give me heroes who are total badasses, who have a little psychopath in them. I like the morally grey. It takes a lot to shock me. Well Touch of Iron shocked the shit out of me. I had to put the book down and take a breather. It is violent, it’s bleak, it’s brutal. It’s fucking wonderful.

Self-Published Fantasy Month

It’s back, and I’m almost prepared. This month long celebration of self-published fantasy began last year and I was super excited but a reading slump hit me in the face right as September started. Fingers crossed for a better attempt this year. A big thanks to Jason over at Off The TBR for coming up with it. Head over to his blog to see what he has planned.

Why I haven’t read many self-published books: A ramble

Why Don’t I Read More Self-Published Books?

I’ve been thinking about this a bit since Jason over at Off The Tbr first started talking about having a month dedicated to self published books, and I have come to a couple of conclusions. Yes they may seem unfair and I might come off like a judgemental mole, but hey, sometimes I am. Continue reading “Self-published fantasy month”
