I’m trying to clear some of my TBR shelf in anticipation of a BIG reading load next year! Not sure how well I’m succeeding, given I keep getting new books…
Odd and the Frost Giants, Neil Gaiman – A lovely little book, gorgeously illustrated and very Gaiman.
Managing Death, Trent Jamieson – Great second book. Loved it!
Careful what you wish for, Maureen McCarthy – A good quick read – great for 12+
Reckless, Cornelia Funke – A bit disjointed, but a nice easy fantasy read.
Griffin’s War, KJ Taylor – Found this such hard going. The first book was so good, but the second and this one were just not engaging. The characterisation made no sense to me, and while unlikeable protagonists are in fashion, I simply found nothing to like about this, from start to finish.
Zombies vs Unicorns, Justine Larbalestier & Holly Black (eds) – one of the best anthologies I’ve read in ages – lots of fun but some serious themes too!
