Once again, I jumped headfirst into a series, uncaring of the previous installments. To be fair, I always had such an inclination, but I thought I could control myself better in my old age, right? Right. Anyway!
Behind the Veil is a slow book, centered around Letitia Hawking and her gift: she’s a psychic, able to experience the final moments of a person before they die. Her peculiar ability renders her both dangerous and vulnerable.
Over the Broad Earth has been a surprise from start to finish.
Talk about surprises. Whenever I pick up a book, the bare minimum I expect from it is a trope paired with a fresh twist. Subtle or blatant, it doesn’t matter, as long as I get something new. With Shadebringer, Hooper read my mind because he pulled one hell of a twist–and I’m allowed to talk about it since it’s in the blurb 😀
I’m very picky when it comes to horror—I’m very picky when it comes to anything, but that’s neither here nor there—for one reason: horror doesn’t just mean blood and gore thrown around, at least on paper. It needs a subtler element too in order to creep readers out. Followers has that element.
Wow! What a cool idea! I’ll admit I always preferred my sci-fi with a dystopian flavor, so I might be a little biased here; still, Without Disruption is a real gem.
Third and last foray into Nix’s world, and this time it’s with a straight-on erotica novel. Given the setting, I’m going to do something I seldom do and split my review into two parts: technical and personal.
A Wedding at Hedgehog Hollow has been my first dive into the Hedgehog Hollow series—what a journey! I was hesitant at first, given my lack of knowledge about the previous installments, but Redland eased me in with a quick recap and then proceeded to spin an interesting tale based on love, second chances, and hedgehogs.
The fourth installment of the Cornish Midwife series is here. I really appreciated the third book (A Winter Wish for the Cornish Midwife), so jumping at the chance to lay my hands on A Spring Surprise for the Cornish Midwife has been a straightforward decision.
Museums are very dear to me. If I had the means, I’d spend the rest of my life traveling abroad and visiting art installations–there’s so much beauty in the world I’d like to see first-hand! Until someone delivers a truck full of money to my doorstep, though, traveling via books will have to do.
