Books I Loved but Never Reviewed

I really like this topic because it gives me the opportunity to shout out about some excellent books that I unfortunately, probably due to timescales for review books, didn’t get to review at the time I read them.  All of these book are ones that I bought and although I read and loved them the reviews got put off and then I sort of lost momentum.  I confess I feel quite guilty!  Anyway, here are some lovelies for you:

  1. The Goblin Emperor by Katherine Addison
  2. Starsight by Brandon Sanderson
  3. King of the Road by RS Belcher
  4. Record of a Spaceborn Few by Becky Chambers
  5. The Tethered Mage by Melissa Caruso
  6. American Gods by Neil Gaiman
  7. How to Flirt with a Naked Werewolf by Molly Harper
  8. Envy of Angels by Matt Wallace
  9. Phantom Pains by Mishell Baker
  10. The Wee Free Men by Terry Pratchett
