May Book Haul

May Book Haul! So I bought…a few…. books during May. Treasure Island by Robert Louis Stevenson (White’s Pocket Edition). I received this instead of the White’s Fine Edition which I have ordered a billion fricken times and always received a different edition. It’s getting quite frustrating I can tell you that. Frankenstein by Mary Shelley (Road’s Publishing). Another one to add to my Frankenstein collection. This edition is so so so beautiful! I need to buy more of these! Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll (Penguin Clothbound Edition). I have wanted this for so long but just never picked it up. Now I have it and I’m pretty darn happy about that. Silvermay by James Moloney. This book has the most beautiful cover. It’s a tragedy that it doesn’t come in hardcover! You can check out my review of this Here. The Crane Wife by Patrick Ness. So I already own this in paperback, and I haven’t read it, but I saw the hardcover for like $3 and decided to buy it. What can …

Book Review: Silvermay by James Moloney

There comes a time in all young parents lives when they must ask themselves the question: Should I kill my baby for the good of all mankind? for most of us, the answer is most likely ‘probably not’, but for young Silvermay, who finds herself the primary carer of baby Lucien, her answer might just be ‘yes. yes I should.’ What’s it about? When young, beautiful Nerigold goes to work for a Wyrdborn lord (basically sociopaths with magical powers – FUN!) and ends up with no memories of the last few months and a baby in the belly, she, and a mysterious-yet-really-really-ridiculously-good-looking travelling companion claiming to be the Baby Daddy, go on the run to protect her baby from his evil real daddy. When a weakened Nerigold and her newborn, Lucien, literally fall into Silvermay’s lap, ends up being the live-in (or rather on-the-run-with) nanny. And of course she ends up falling for Mr Dream-Boat McFake Baby Daddy. What did I think? So I have been eyeing off this book for quite some time. I mean seriously just …

Friday Reads – Silvermay by James Moloney

I’ve been meaning to pick this book up for a really really long time. I finally downloaded a preview of it from the Kobo store last night and was completely sold by the prologue. This is a fantasy trilogy by Australian author, James Moloney. About a young girl who gets caught up in the escape of a young couple fleeing dark forces that for some (yet) unknown reason are pursuing the couple’s newborn son. Strangely, I just read Sarah J. Maas’ A Court of Thorns and Roses with two of the main characters being Tamlin and Lucien, and two of the main characters in this one are also Tamlin and Lucien. Strange. You can get the ebook from Kobo here.
