I'll be honest, "gender-swapped Alexander the Great retelling set in space" was all I needed to know about Unconquerable Sun when it originally crossed my path -- it immediately got added to the "most anticipated books of the year" list.

Book Review: Spinning Silver by Naomi Novik

Uprooted is a book that I absolutely love and am very thankful for.  It’s the book that broke the worst reading slump of my life, which had been carrying on for months. I love it so much, despite its (romance) problems, and I constantly recommend it.  You can probably imagine my excitement when I heard about her next novel, Spinning Silver.  After months of pining, my copy arrived in the post and I was so thrilled to get reading.

Review: Norse Mythology

I absolutely adore Neil Gaiman and snapped up a copy of this book in hardback within a month of publication. I'm a huge fan of mythology, but know so little about Norse mythology. This is a great introduction to the world of Thor, Loki, Odin, and the whole host of gods and goddesses that inhabit Asgard that have becoming more and more mainstream.
