Toil and Trouble is a collection of short stories about women and witchcraft.
It’s October and in honor of the spookiest month of the year, I’ve decided to read a bunch of fantasy novels. Because my last review was an Adult Urban Fantasy (LINK to Hypnos), I decided to switch things up and read a Young Adult Fantasy next. Bound by Duty is the first book in a short series (yes, I read all three) about the main character, Amelia.
I have been watching the reboot of Charmed and it’s put me in the mood for some kick-ass ladies with supernatural abilities. So, when I saw Ever Strange on Amazon, I decided it was worth starting a new series to satisfy my craving - even though I did zero research on the book in advance, other than reading the blurb on Amazon. And let me tell you, this book delivers supernatural-ability-wielding kick-ass women in spades.
The concept of this collection of short stories is that the characters fulfill gendered prophecies in unexpected ways.
It’s NaNoWriMo!* Time to get writing, Bathtub Book Clubians! In honor of this auspicious annual event, I thought we should talk about a book that will have the literary nerds in all of us jumping for joy: Libriomancer (Magic Ex Libris: Book One) by Jim C. Hines.
