Lockwood & Co by Jonathan Stroud

Whatever genre you maybe into, I can vouch for this series. It’s so very good. You are bound to like it. Jonathan Stroud is a gem of a writer. His Bartimaeus trilogy is fabulous. And this one is even more so. The premise is so very imaginative and unusual. A London plagued by ghosts. Ghosts…

Sucker for a Quote

A good quote is a failsafe mood changer for me. Quotes are like concentrated bits of magic; you read one and the next moment you are a different person. I simply can’t resist reading a quote, even if it is printed on somebody’s T-shirt. And I can tell you, I have got many funny looks…

The Parasol Protectorate series by Gail Carriger
