Review: The Wolf of Oren-Yaro – K.S.Villoso

Hello!

Another somewhat delayed post. I had been debating what to write about this week, as while I have been continuing to work my way through the books, I am currently reading, none of them has hooked me to the point where I wanted to talk about them. Then on Tuesday I got an email saying that my preorder of ‘The Wolf of Oren-Yaro’ by K.S.Villoso was ready to collect, off I went, and unable to resist the lure of a new book especially one that I was incredibly excited for I started reading it on the bus.

I have just finished it, and the first thing I have to say is that I loved this book.

Review: The Wolf’s Call – Anthony Ryan

Hello!

Tuesday again already, it’s been a very quick week. This week should slow things down a bit as I am on holiday – so plenty of time to read, write and that cursed word EDIT. Although, I have to say that I’ve gained a fresh appreciation for it as I am currently struggling to get through a book that could have done with a lot more editing before being released into the wild.

On a happier reading note. I finished ‘The Wolf’s Call’ by Anthony Ryan about half five this morning after spending the entire night reading – which is what I will be talking about today. I am continuing to work my way through ‘Spark City’ by Robert. J. Power and I have just started ‘North Child’ by Edith Pattou.

A touch of nostalgia…and Dragons.

Hello!

We’re a week into 2020 already, and it looks as though Tuesdays are going to be blog days (apart from the odd one where I am stuck in a meeting room all day in Edinburgh, which I will warn you about).

So far this year I’ve finished ‘Never Die’ by Rob. J. Hayes (5* and would highly recommend for anyone with an interest in Asian-based fantasies) and ‘Winterglass’ by Benjanun Sriduangkaew (4*, beautiful language and fantastic queer representation) which were both excellent, and that I reviewed on Goodreads. At the moment, I am roughly 75% through ‘The Wolf’s Call’ by Anthony Ryan (which I will be discussing in my next post because my love for the world of this book is off the charts), and I have just started ‘Spark City’ by Robert J. Power. I have also signed up to participate in the #armedwithabingo Book bingo – with Winterglass giving me my first stamp.

My Top 5 Books for 2019

Happy Hogmanay!

I am really kicking off this new blog now, with a summary of my favourite books from this year. 2019 was a mixed bag for me, but through it I have rediscovered my love of reading and storytelling, both through the books I’ve read, playing Dungeons & Dragons (which also involves a lot of shouting at the dice) most Sundays and my own writing, and I wanted to reflect on some of the books that contributed to that.
