Magic Monday: Nightmare Stories by Matthew Dewar

As I mentioned in a previous post, I’m bringing Magic Monday back from the dead (again!), just in time for the spookiest month of the year. The book I’m reviewing today is a horror anthology by Matthew Dewar, a theme I thought fitting given that 1) it is October and …

Magic Monday: Chung Jo and the Sea Dragon by Erica Laurie

Magic Monday is back, today with a review of a fantastical folk tale by Erica Laurie. The first thing that caught my eye about this book was its gorgeous cover. The blurb that accompanies it is brief, but promises a lot: The lonely sea dragon,Yong, wants a bride. Chung Jo …

Magic Monday: The Girl Who Drank the Moon by Kelly Barnhill

When I was first planning this blog post, the first Magic Monday book review of 2017, I thought it would be the first book I read this year, Iron Hearted Violet by Kelly Barnhill. However, I then picked up The Girl Who Drank the Moon by the same author (which …

Novella Spotlight: Nyssa Glass’s Clockwork Christmas by HL Burke

Christmas is just around the corner, but it’s never too late to buy someone a gift of a story. Today I’m spotlighting one of my favorite Christmas tales, Nyssa Glass’s Clockwork Christmas. Released earlier this year, this story is part of the Nyssa Glass series, but stands easily on its …

Magic Monday: The Temptation of Dragons by Chrys Cymri

Today’s Magic Monday review features a book that I normally wouldn’t have considered reading, much less reviewing as favorably as I am about to. The main reason for this is that, though fantasy, the book features a vicar as the main character, and religion plays a strong role in the …

Today I’m reviewing Shield of Drani by Melonie Purcell, a science fiction novel filled with different planets and aliens, spiced with plenty of action, intrigue…and telepathic/telekinetic characters. Here’s the blurb: One planet rich in …

Magic Monday: Stitching Snow by R. C. Lewis

As I mentioned in a previous post, this month’s Magic Monday is arriving today, the fourth Monday of the month, rather than the second Monday of the month. I wanted to give a little more leeway between when I read the book and when I reviewed it, as it’s for …

Magic Monday: Castle Waiting by Linda Medley

This month’s fantasy book review is a little late. Time has a habit of slipping by… But enough of that. Time to focus on the main event, that is to say, the book review! Today’s novel is a graphic novel, Castle Waiting, written and illustrated by the talented Linda Medley. …

Magic Monday: Heart of the Winterland by Kristen Kooistra

Today I’m reviewing Heart of the Winterland by Kristen Kooistra, a fantasy novel full of powerful female characters, enchanting scenery, and–most importantly–friendship, and love. I should note before I go further that I do know Kristen, but this review was by no means solicited–I had Heart of the Winterland on …
