New review at Girls in Capes: A CROWN FOR COLD SILVER

This week, I review A CROWN FOR COLD SILVER by Alex Marshall at Girls in Capes! Here’s a short preview of my review of this adult epic fantasy:

In what is possibly the actual greatest scene of any fantasy novel ever, Zosia discovers that her imposter’s been wearing some sort of metal bikini-like thing and tells her that if she takes no other advice, put some real clothes on.  Meta, but also hilarious.

February 2015 Books Completed

I pulled pretty far ahead in February!  While I’m still behind by a little bit, I really pushed ahead this month, which is good since March will be exceptionally busy as I complete my capstone!  With the 7 books I finished this month, I’m up to 10 books and am 5 behind for the challenge.

Here are the books I completed in February:

Cover of Parable of the Sower by Octavia E. ButlerThe Parable of the Sower by Octavia Butler.  I loved Butler’s novel Kindred, and The Parable of the Sower didn’t disappoint. An adult speculative fiction about faith set in the middle of an apocalypse. 4 out of 5 stars

A Crown for Cold Silver by Alex Marshall.  One of the most engaging and entertaining adult fantasy novels I’ve ever read, which is about a retired villain who’s drawn back into action. 4.5 out of 5 stars

Food Wars! Shokugeki no Soma, Vol. 1-4, by Yuto Tsukuda and Shun Saeki.  A re-read of volumes 1-3 and a first read of volume 4, this cooking manga is hugely entertaining and doesn’t fail to delight. 4 out of 5 stars

Stupid Cupid by Rhonda Stapleton.  A fluffy and fun YA novel suitable for younger, possibly more reluctant readers.  Only a little touch of the supernatural.  3 out of 5 stars

What books did you read in February? What would you recommend most highly?
