Probably thanks to J.K. Rowling the last decade has seen a massive increase in novels featuring witches, magic, and numerous fantasy worlds. And about 5 years ago a man named Lev Grossman released a novel titled The Magicians that was touted as “A Harry Potter novel for adults.” I guess I should first comment that all of the Harry Potter novels are stellar and are not just for kids, so if you haven’t read them you are truly missing out. But I was intrigued by this review and all the popular acclaim this novel got, so I decided to check it out. Continue onward for my spoiler containing review of this novel.
Have you figured out that Lilith has got a lot of time on her hands yet? Yup, recovering from surgery means I have a lot of extra time to watch incredible movies and TV shows, read wonderful novels, and write to all you slobbering geek fans. It’s the way the world would be in a different time and a different place. So in less than a week since my last suggestion to you, today I bring you an evil book review that I have very much come to enjoy and hope you will too. The Deadtown series by Nancy Holzner, featuring Victory Vaughan, are a kick-ass way to spend your down time, especially if you are looking for a strong female role model to whip some serious supernatural butt. Unlike last week’s post, I will warn you that this week’s post will have some spoilers. Continue on at your own risk!
Welcome, welcome, to the 75th Annu- wait, wait, that’s not it, sorry…I was getting distracted there. Too many amazing movies and novels in my mind brimming over the seams that sometimes my mind just goes in to quote mode. What I meant to say is “Welcome to another hijacked suggestions post where you get to hear all about Lilith’s favorite things”, and today I am bringing you a character that I have come to admire for all his idiosyncrasies, a true oddity amongst the world of horror, right down to his name. The first novel in the series is named after this touching person: Odd Thomas is the first in a series about a boy named Odd by Dean Koontz, and it is my pleasure to suggest this series to you all.
