There's lots to love about this addition to the Greek myths retelling canon. Lots of familiar places and faces but still told in a fresh way.

Review: Longshadow by Olivia Atwater
I love finding a series that I can totally trust when it comes to a fast-paced storyline, engaging characters and a little sprinkling of magic. For me, the Invisible Library series and this series - Regency Faerie Tales - fall into that perfectly.
Review: The Measure by Nikki Erlick
This book poses the kind of question that I just had to ask of my other reading friends - if a box arrived on your doorstep with a length of string that could tell you how long you would live your life, would you open it? And would your life be well-lived?
Review: All of Our Demise by Amanda Foody and Christine Lynn Herman
I read All of Us Villains last year and there is and was just something about this series that has genuinely edged into my dreams over the past year. It's dark, it's nasty, and underneath it all, it's human too.
Review: The Ten Thousand Stitches by Olivia Atwater
Well, I am loving this series. It is the perfect combination of light, fun romance with a sprinkling of fantasy and a little nod towards Regency society.
Blog Tour: The Women Could Fly by Megan Giddings
It's my spot on the Random Things blog tour for The Women Could Fly - it's a short but slippery novel and I found myself wavering back and forth between different ratings over each and every page I read.
Review: The Reluctant Vampire Queen by Jo Simmons
I made it through, but quite honestly I found it uncomfortable reading. It felt like the way teen fiction used to be written 10 or 15 years ago and it doesn't stand up in comparison to what else is out there now.
Review: The Daughter of Doctor Moreau by Silvia Moreno-Garcia
This book had quite a slow start to a good story. It has a wonderful claustrophobic setting and backdrop that just adds to the sense of the unearthly.
Review: Half a Soul by Olivia Atwater
Ahh this was everything I was looking for in a Regency romance (and with added fae/supernatural elements too). Fast, fun and a little-swoon-worthy.
Review: The Cat Who Saved Books by Sosuke Natsukawa
This was a bit of a mixed bag for me - I was expecting more cat and more books, rather than a discussion of high literature, how to read the right way and emphasising what a shut-in the main character is. Part of that I know fits with the style and genre of Japanese literature, but this just didn't rate highly for me overall.
