I pre-order, I pre-order a lot. In fact I need to pre-order less because it’s getting ridiculous how many open orders I have on Amazon. There’s just one problem. I need these books. I need them the day they come out. I get very upset if that doesn’t happen, and you don’t want to make me upset. See the Amazon saga of 2012 for reference. All of these books are sat in my pre-order section…and then some 1. Magic Shifts by Ilona Andrews (4th August 2015) Book 8 in the…


All of us at BCC have favourite authors and series, which means that each year there are books we just can’t wait to get our hands on. Here are the books each of us are most looking forward to in 2015. What are yours? LAURA I think it’s fair to say that 2014 was one of the worst reading years for me. I read very few books (31) which also meant that I fell behind with some of my favourite series too – the Kate Daniels series by Ilona Andrews springs…

Magic Breaks

The minute this book landed in my lap I had an epic fangirl squeal!! It was all high pitched and not me at all, only very special series get that from me and boy, is the Kate Daniels series right up there. For those who are not familiar with this series, there is a very useful journal entry from Barbaras (Kate’s lawyer) which does a basic summary of the previous 6 books. It’s great to have it all summed up neatly at the beginning, though it feels a bit like…

I have read 57 books and listened to 8 audiobooks this year, giving me a total of 65 books in 2013. Which is actually the lowest amount of books I have read in the past 4 years. But 2014 is a new year and there are plenty of books for me to sink my teeth into. It also doesn’t mean that I didn’t read some fab books, because I so did. As always it’s really hard to decide what goes on my top ten of the year and there are…


REVIEW: Magic Gifts by Ilona Andrews


Magic Bites (Kate Daniels #5.4) by Ilona Andrews Self-Published (Dec 2011) Ebook, 100 pages Urban Fantasy Magic Gifts is a great novella in the Kate Daniels series. It is included with Gunmetal Magic, the Andrea spin-off (which I really must read). I was however, sent it separately for review. It takes place after Magic Slays, the latest instalment, but before Gunmetal Magic. The story begins with Kate and Curran going out for a dinner date. But as ever for things with Kate and Curran things don’t quite go to plan. It…

Immortal Rider

Each month we’ll be sharing our best reads from the previous month. Theses books won’t be limited to new releases, but they will be books we loved and want you guys to know about. So here are our May recommendations. CAROLYN This month hasn’t been the best reading month for me. But I did finally read Immortal Rider by Larissa Ione, the second book in the Lords of Deliverance series, which is my one and only recommendation for May. I read and loved Eternal Rider when it was first released,…

On the Edge

MAY’S BOOK CLUB READ On The Edge by Ilona Andrews (The Edge #1) Ace Books (September 2009) Ebook, 340 pages Urban Fantasy I have wanted to read On The Edge for quite a while, quite simply because I love Andrews’ Kate Daniels series. I’m so pleased I wasn’t disappointed. There were many things I liked about the book, but one of the main things has to be the setting. The setting was great, it wasn’t quite fantasy, but I don’t know if I would call it urban fantasy either. It’s…
