That has had me worried about writing this review, but I guess it IS a retelling, so it’s okay if you read it as a standalone. I hate to say it, but as much as… Continue reading Miranda and Caliban by Jacqueline Carey A Retelling of Shakespeare's Tragic Tale

The Comer Seekers by Helen Sedgwick A magical book for the winter season

In short: this is a wonderful book. I loved it. Main feel: layered, nostalgic, deep and emotional. Slow, will focus on feelings, coping with them, family events, and not action or developments, will also jump around timelines. However, very magical, very warm and personal. Star rating: ☆☆☆☆☆   I loved this book to bits. Considering I… Continue reading The Comer Seekers by Helen Sedgwick A magical book for the winter season
