Straight Outta Fangton
04, Nov

Reading Straight Outta Fangton is like being in a Mel Brooks-induced vampire coma with Buffy and Blade repeats looping in your dreams. I started laughing on page one and didn’t stop until the end.

I had a lot of fun with this read! I love grimdark fantasy. So naturally, when I got my hands on this issue of Grimdark Magazine, I jumped right in with both feet and was not disappointed!

4/5 stars.

With Rejoice: A Knife to the Heart, Erikson holds up a mirror for all of humanity.

4.5/5 stars.

This is a fine example of how one writes Young Adult.  I am once again in awe of this master of storytelling, who excelled in his first full-length space opera novel.

Legion: The Many Lives of Stephen Leeds (Legion, #1 - 3)
20, Sep

4.5/5 stars.

Legion carries the Sanderson trademark through and through, with concepts which are fantastical and far out, but the storytelling is always centred around the characters and humanistic themes.

Parable of the Sower (Earthseed #1)
19, Sep

Rating: 4/5 Stars

The best & worst thing about this book is just how realistic it is.

The Cabinet of Curiosities (Pendergast, #3)
16, Sep

4.5 stars.

Three books in and Agent Pendergast might have convinced me to include thrillers as one of my favourite genres. 

City of Miracles (The Divine Cities, #3)
08, Sep

5/5 stars.

If I could have divined that Robert Jackson Bennett's masterful genre-redefining trilogy will end up as one of my all-time favourites, I would not have waited so long to read it. 

City of Blades (The Divine Cities, #2)
26, Aug

5/5 stars.

City of Blades is easily one of the best books I've read this year; it has almost everything I could ask for in a sequel that builds upon a fantastic start to a trilogy.

Foundryside (Founders, #1)
21, Aug

Rating: 4/5 Stars

Sancia Grado is lonesome thief on the streets of Foundryside.
