Top Ten Tuesday: Witches and Wizards

Magic is fun. Magic is dangerous. It can be used to create or to destroy, to provide solutions, or to thwart your enemies.

Top Ten Tuesday: Fantasy Sidekicks

From adventurers to hermits, swordsmen to squires, best friends to lovers – sidekicks come in all shapes and sizes, and the best ones don’t simply accompany the hero on a quest. They can often become a hero in their own right, and in their own ways. Today I’m shining a light on some of my all-time favourite sidekicks – and yes, I might have interpreted some a little broadly.

Top Ten Tuesday: Winter TBR

This week’s Top Ten is all about what I’m pulling off the shelves to cosy up with this winter, and there are so many options. I tend to get a kind of seasonal mood for reading around this time of year, and you know what that means. Dark fantasy, wicked mythical creatures, blood on the snow. Why, what did you think I meant?
