So instead of giving last minute Christmas ideas for the books I’ve read this year, I’m going to give the top 5 series to introduce the sci-fi and fantasy fans in your life. Because why only enjoy one book when you can enjoy many!
Pretty cover. Pretty fluffy.
In this Episode of Science Fiction Double Feature, I talk to author V E Schwab about A Conjuring of Light, the third and final installment of the Shades of Magic Series. Then we find out what 18th century London would have really been like with Professor of Urban History, Tim Hitchcock.
A Conjuring of Light is the the third and final book in the Shades of Magic Series by V E Schwab.
War for the Oaks was the book the kicked off the urban fantasy genre. We follow Eddi McCandry, a musician from Minneapolis, who finds herself chosen by the Seelie Court (read: fairies) to help make their war with the Unseelie Court a ‘mortal’ one.
The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern revolves around two magicians (for lack of a better word) pitted against each other in a game when they were both young children. Celia by her father and Marco by the man who picked him out of an orphanage – the mysterious Mr A H.
Oh my god, what a terrible book. The plot, characters, pacing and world was terrible.

Phoenix is essentially a scientifically created super being. She’s only 3 years old but has accelerated growth and maturity, so she’s like a 40 year old woman. She won’t grow any older.
