Review: Training Daze (Kris Longknife #3.5)

Kris Longknife: Training Daze: A Companion Novella to the Kris Longknife Series: (A Penguin Especial from Ace)Kris Longknife: Training Daze: A Companion Novella to the Kris Longknife Series: by Mike Shepherd
My rating:

That was fun – I hadn’t read this one before, so it was good to get some fresh material in between re-reading the first few books of the series. Resolute (KL #4) does fill you in on the essentials enough that it doesn’t matter if you have missed this, but I did like learning the extra details, and especially getting that look inside Jack’s head.

Review: Winning the Wallflower

Winning the WallflowerWinning the Wallflower by Eloisa James
My rating:

This was a lovely fun little novella with some great one-liners. I did have a déjà vu moment where it suddenly seemed very familiar, but I think I must’ve read the preview on EJ’s website at some point! Anyway, well worth a read, especially for the price.

Review: Basil Brush and a Dragon

Basil Brush And A DragonBasil Brush And A Dragon by Peter Firmin
My rating:

Basil Brush, his friend Harry the mole, and Alfred the dog go on a make-believe dragon hunt.

This was the first book I picked up by myself, aged 5, because I was looking for something to do and decided that I’d read. It had been a favourite bedtime story for Mum or Dad to read to me, and I already knew it off by heart, but I discovered that reading to myself (“in my head”) was a whole new world of fun! I’ve had my nose in a book just about constantly ever since.

“Forward Alfred!!”

Review: An Angel for the Earl

An Angel for the Earl
An Angel for the Earl by Barbara Metzger
My rating:

Lovely light-hearted fluff with a slightly unusual angle in that the heroine is in a coma / almost-ghost-state for the majority of the book. Her mission, should she choose to accept it, is to reform the hero’s lifestyle. Fun and games ensues!

I enjoyed this one, and it was a definite change from the more usual Regency formula.
