    Dealing with Dragons by Patricia C. Wrede (Caramellunacy)
    Caramellunacy: Both stories have a funny irreverent approach. Dealing with Dragons is a bunch of fairy tales gone tangled as Princess Cimorene refuses to do what's proper. Magyk is full of quirky characters and writing - I love the scene where the stove is frantically trying to light itself!)… (more)

    The Magic Thief by Sarah Prineas (megan003, Caramellunacy)
    Caramellunacy: Both are set in a somewhat run-down and dreary fantasy world, but Boy 412 and Conn showed what I thought was a similar fun 'spark' in working their way through their lot. Both of these are charming magical adventures.

Sense of ease and humour throughout and very readable overall, but was not especially captivating to me when I read it. ( )

A promising beginning to a fun series. The Heap family are loving and practical and hopeful. The wizards and interesting. The adventure is exciting. And this book explores the idea of identity and figuring out who you are. ( )

Colleen really got into this. (I liked it well enough.) ( )
  livingtech | Mar 18, 2020 |
Fun children's book. Fun characters. ( )
  nx74defiant | Feb 23, 2020 |
Terrible. Relying on virtually every fantasy trope available, this is the most pointlessly formulaic book I've ever read. The phrase, "Don't waste your time," seems tailor-made for this tome. ( )
