Book Report: The Islands of Chaldea by Diana Wynne Jones, Completed by Ursula Jones

Entertaining, with her usual quirkiness and strong matriarchal figures, but not my favorite of Diana Wynne Jones’s books.

The plot seemed more simplistic than her other stories, especially toward the end. 39 more words

Book Recommendations: High Fantasy, part One.

Alright, so I read voraciously and I thought I’d recommend a few books for you guys. These are all childrens and YA books, except for classics, Terry Pratchett, and Robin McKinley, but that doesn’t make them any less good.  1,501 more words
