About Me

Hi, my name is Kady.

Hi, my name is Kady. I have been reading fantasy for as long as I can remember, at least 20 years. I am a fan of epic worldbuilding, clever comedy, hard magic systems and fast paced action.

To give you a flavor of who I am, authors that I enjoy include (in no particular order):

Adrian Tchaikovsky
Terry Pratchett
Brandon Sanderson
David Gemmell
Jim Butcher
Ben Aaronovitch
Robin Hobb
Brent Weeks
Dan Abnett
Phillip Reeve

In recent years I have found myself re-reading my favourite books (mainly by the above authors) rather than striking out and finding new ones, part of my reason for starting this blog is that I want to challenge myself to find new stories to read. Don’t get me wrong - I love re-reading my favourites, it’s like putting on my comfy oversized hoodie or catching up with a close friend who I haven't seen for a few years. Each re-read brings out something I didn’t spot before - I must have read the majority of the Discworld books at least three times each and I am still finding new puns (though that may just be the genius of the late, great Sir Terry - GNU).

My hope for this website is that I will get to share with you why I think that the above authors are incredible story tellers and I will start to feel inspired to take a chance on new authors and new series. Essentially this is a place for me to shout about books that I think are amazing.

My aim is to provide you with subjective book reviews which will hopefully help you to decide where to invest your time.
