Call it 'muse' if you will - if it's present, the only restriction on speed is how fast I can type. If it isn't, it's like wading through treacle.(less)

#BookReview – STORM BORN by Richelle Mead #UrbanFantasy

Whilst unpacking boxes following the grand move, I realised just how many un-read paperbacks I own, so I decided to read one!

“It’s just as well I’m not claustrophobic. Even so, being held captive in a bottle was not how I’d planned to spend my weekend. It was also one of the most undignified positions I’ve ever been in; a water sprite can be squished down pretty small, but it doesn’t mean we enjoy the process.”
