REVIEW: Libriomancer by Jim C. Hines

Libriomancer - Jim C. Hines

I admit that when I first picked up this book I was a bit sceptical. I freely admit that I put off reading this for one reason and one reason only. I really hate the cover. It’s so bad for me to be judgemental like that but it’s everything I hate in a cover. However, I have never been happier to be proved so wrong to judge a book by its cover because this was a truly engaging read. Libriomancer is one of the most innovative ideas I’ve come across…

Bound by Molly Ann Wishlade (The Wild, Wild West #1) - for review

The Wild, Wild West is a new erotic romance e-novella series by Molly Ann Wishlade, published by Carina UK.

The Silkworm by Robert Galbraith UK cover

Last year, the announcement that Robert Galbraith is a pseudonym for J.K. Rowling introduced a wave of readers to the disgruntled private detective, Cormoran Strike, who returns in The Silkworm. Our favourite one-legged detective is approached by Leonora Quine, who hires Cormoran to find her husband, Owen, who has been missing for over a week. Owen is a writer, and an unreliable one at that, frequently disappearing to work on manuscripts or to try and garner more publicity. This is the longest he has been away, and Leonora is running…
