All The Horses Of Iceland by Sarah Tolmie | Novella Review

I had hoped I would vibe a bit more with All The Horses Of Iceland by Sarah Tolmie. Historical fantasy is right up my alley. I just finished watching The Bachelor which had set the finale parts in Iceland. So, now I feel a bit more affinity with the place — trite as that may sound. […]

Comfort Me With Apples by Catherynne M. Valente | Novella Review

Catherynne M. Valente’s novella Comfort Me With Apples was a bit of an interesting reading experience — different from the expectations I had.

FYI, it feels weird that when you read this it will be snowing and blustery and cold whereas, I am […]
