Casanova with a cat sidekick. That’s pretty much what I got from this story. I actually had to start it three times before I was ready to really delve into the story. And, after the first two pages, I was actually entranced.
It’s like a really twisted, warped snow white. And for just two pages, it certainly packed a punch!
I swear that this series just keeps on getting better and better. Every time I open the page on a new Harry Dresden adventure, he seems to have stuck his foot further into some mess, found some new and incredibly enemies (and sidekicks), and just generally managed to work out a way to get himself into deeper shit.
Everyone has had some kind of interaction with a bully. Whether it is being one, witnessing one or being the target, everyone has had some experience. I think it’s this universal fact with the dash of paranormal fantasy that made this short Dresden Files story so fun.
You know it’s a good book when you stay up until 2am just to finish it. Alright, I might do that a little more than is healthy. But, basically, I was so desperate to see where Harry was going to find himself this time that I just couldn’t put it down. And believe me, I tried.
The end of September and my first month of participating in reading challenges has come to a close. And it's been a really fun experience! I have this incredibly frustrating habit of picking up one series, reading a book or two and then switching to another... by completing reading challenges, I'm able to find an excuse to read books that are part of a series that I may have put down a year ago.
The nice weather is coming back, so I probably shouldn't have spent as much time holed up inside with study or a good book...
I love a good graphic novel. Especially when it’s one that features a much loved character from a series that I’ve quickly become obsessed with.
The ultimate story of seduction over the wild beast. Kind of a spin on Little Red Riding Hood but with a far cooler ending. After all, the big teeth ultimately lead to a happily ever after… of sorts.
I started reading this book over a year ago. And after the first three stories, I felt completely overwhelmed. Honestly, they are hard going. But, after having a very long break, I decided to return to the world of Angela Carter. And I don’t know if it’s that I was in a better frame of mind for it, or maybe my reading tastes have developed, but there is something about Carter's lyrical writing style that made it almost impossible to put this down.
