An Unexpected Hiatus

Hey there,

So it’s been a while. Almost a year. Why did I stop? 2 reasons

A new spin on common myths

Sooo, another happy review ā¤ Beware of the spoilers! Clean Sweep was published October 2015, and since then a second book has been published and Ilona Andrews are blogging the third book on their site.

Read this if you love new mythology

I am late with this review (read the book last week) but even so I am just having trouble recalling the story. To me the story was more the backdrop that was used to display the amazing mythology than the other way around.

Waiting on Wednesday: Innkeeper #3

In my effort to expand my urban fantasy readings, I dove into Ilona Andrews’s Innkeeper series. Ahhh. It was so good! I tore through the first two books (thanks for making me appear bleary-eyed at work. Worth it though). And now, because there’s always two sides to a coin or some stuff like that, now the anguish of waiting on the third installment!

Top Ten Tuesday: Places I will go

The setting of a book may be as important as the events that transpire in it. Well. Maybe not that important, but it ranks a close second. There are some places that have been depicted so lovingly in books that I now want to visit it. So, without further ado, here are the real life places I want to visit because of a fictional account of it (…just go with me here. Literally :D):

Waiting on…The Originals S3

Even though this is primarily a book blog I do not constrict myself to fit a medium šŸ™‚ Since urban fantasy is my main jam and I am actually wanting to share my love for this genre as a whole, I am going to include select TV shows here as well. I may post a blog in the future explaining how I define urban fantasy here, but for now I will just say my blog, my rules, and I declare The Originals this week’s “waiting on Wednesday.”

Top Ten hubs to find UF series

In my quest for new (to me) urban fantasy series, I realized it’s not the easiest to discover those, since I live in the Netherlands and those lovely pocketsized books are actually not for sale in my local bookstores. For how I discovered the genre, read on here, but now I will tell you how I sate my love for UF series in a UF starved world… Obviously this is just really basic stuff about how I find new books, but since I ctually spend some time on that and like the process I thought I’d share!

Cat & Bones, not your average couple

Beware. Spoilers!

Halfway to the Grave, the first book in the Night Huntress series by Jeaniene Frost, was a blast to read. ƌt had a steamy vampire (on the lightweight side, smut-wise, but it featured plenty of romance), a pretty kick-ass heroine and some interesting family dynamics. I liked the pace of the novel, with lots of action and murdering the evil guys. The style was fun, really flippant and filled with sarcasm and absurdity, just the way I like it.

Waiting on Wednesday: Cainsville 4

In what (I think?) is a time honored tradition in book blogging, here my first “waiting on Wednesday!”

There are still two full months before Betrayals,Ā the fourth installmentĀ in the Cainsville series by Kelley Armstrong comes out…the wait seems endless. I was so excited for this book that I, for the first time ever, participated in a contest to win an ARC. Haven’t heard back, but am keeping my fingers crossed!

Top Ten Tuesday: Fave Urban Fantasy series

As a child I read voraciously and indiscriminately. Genres and age-appropriate books were things I knew existed but never paid any attention to. Before delving into my favorite genre, let me tell you how I found out aboutĀ the classifying power of genre.
