Spear

A charming, light, brief tale. Just what I needed at the time.

Throne of Glass

Soooo much drama. It’s really good, it’s just … a lot.

The Hands of the Emperor

I would never have expected a novel about the positive power of bureaucracy could be so enjoyable.

Babel

Hard to read but in a good way. So much pain. So much pain. So much frustration.

The Citadel of Weeping Pearls

I liked the story well enough. In fact, I liked it enough that I wanted more of the story. It felt too short.

The Singing Hills Cycle

This isn’t a series that must be read in order, though I did. Each is a little gem in its own right.

The Drowning Empire

So it made me cry. Which doesn’t happen that often and means it was effective.

book covers

The Radiant Emperor

Really good story but sad. So many people getting twisted out of shape by societal and family expectations. And some who conquer them.

Leveling Up Series

The midlife romance was a nice change, the characters were fun — I would love to go to the bar featured in the series — and the few sex scenes were easy enough to skim over as desired.
