Audiobook Review: Without a Summer by Mary Robinette Kowal

In the third book of the Glamourist Histories, Kowal keeps the story and plot fresh and continues to give us more of that fantastical regency romance that works incredibly well. What can I say? Turns out that even with all the grimdark books that I love, I have a very soft spot for a well written regency period story with...

Backlist Burndown Review: Glamour in Glass by Mary Robinette Kowal

Glamour in Glass was every bit of an enjoyable escape for me as Shades of Milk and Honey. I absolutely love this time period setting and the magic of glamours just enhances that. In this one, Jane and Vincent work as a husband and wife team working as glamourists for noble families. Jane is adjusting to married life, as they...

Backlist Burndown Review: The Spirit Thief by Rachel Aarron

I chose this book for both a Backlist Burndown feature (it’s been on my TBR for a while) as well as my Swords and Sorcery square for Reddit Fantasy’s Bingo.

Backlist Burndown Review: Rat Queens

I’ve not read all that many graphic novels, and Rat Queens is quite a departure from the ones I have read. The title of this volume is “Sass and Sorcery” and quite frankly, that’s very fitting, particularly the sass. Rat Queens is a group of mercenaries, made up of irreverent, sarcastic women who enjoy indulging in their share of drink,...

Backlist Burndown Review: Moxyland by Lauren Beukes

So, the first book I read by Lauren Beukes was her newest book, Broken Monsters. I really can’t stop gushing about how much I love that book. Since then I have been working backwards through her books, reading The Shining Girls and then Zoo City. With Mulholland’s upcoming release of  new paperback editions for both Zoo City and Moxyland, I figured...
