The Conch Bearer

Breaking Dawn (Twilight, #4)

Like I had hoped, I adored it. The series has been accused of being misogynistic and advocating paedophilia (laughable), and I'm sure this book will g ...more

This book had me hooked already on page two, when I discovered that at least some witches in this universe wrote witching spells using computer code! ...more

A Dangerous Witch (Witch Central, #3)

Very bittersweet book to read, since I knew it would be the last book about my dear witches. I almost put off reading it, so I'd still have something ...more

An Imperfect Witch (Witch Central, #1)

I've long since realized that the plot of Debora Geary's books really doesn't matter at all (well... that's probably an exaggeration, but it matters v ...more

The Innocent Mage (Kingmaker, Kingbreaker, #1)

Asher is a refreshing change to the common fantasy hero - he's neither a long-long son of some king somewhere, nor a diamond in the rough. He's merely ...more

A Game of Thrones (A Song of Ice and Fire, #1)

I'm not sure whether this deserves 2 or 3 stars... wish half-star ratings had been implemented. It's not exactly boring, but very slow-moving. It does ...more

I read the first half of OSUS thinking it was a prequel, and I think that may have influenced my opinion of the book. I kept waiting for the action to ...more
