  1. I am also interested in doing a read of the Spirit Walker trilogy one day, would love to hear your thoughts first hee! Simon and the Homo Sapien Agenda looks excellent, lucky you for the win!

    1. I really liked the first book in the Spirit Walker trilogy (Cold Magic) but haven’t reviewed it. Although I do have some thoughts to share =)

      I’ve been on Goodreads for years but since I had time this year, I decided to review and blog more. Books for review often come first on the blog but I definitely try to squeeze in a post about the books I read just for fun.


  2. I STILL have never read The Silver Metal Lover! Which is weird, because I’m pretty sure it’s her most famous work. I need to remedy this – I want it to be my next Tanith Lee read (despite the fact that I own some of her other books but not this one) because…well, it seems like an important one to read. And I really want to get my hands on Kate Elliot’s Spirit Walker books too!

    1. Yes! I know how it feels. That sense of having read an author’s work except the one they are most well known for. Off the top of my head, I’d probably go with Diana Wynne Jones (I’ve read and loved the Chrestomanci books but not Howl’s Moving Castle despite my love for the film adaptation.)

      I really love the worldbuilding in Kate Elliot’s Spirit Walker Trilogy. I am now convinced that I need to share my thoughts at some point.


  3. So glad Simon arrived safely, Glaiza, and I hope you loveeeeeee it endlessly. Or at least really enjoy it! It’s totally adorable and I do so love the cover. Oh, and I got Talk Under Water, too, and apparently it’s set in my homestate, so I’m interested to see how it’s pictured and all that. Possibly it means I’ll be very critical, but we’ll see. Here’s hoping we both enjoy it!

    Oh, and noting your above comment- I just finished The Lives of Christopher Chant, which is officially my favourite Chrestomanci book (although I swoon for older Chrestomanci). So good. x
