  1. If you enjoyed Tolkien, RR Martin, and MZ Bradley, then you should check out Tad Williams’ “Memory, Sorrow and Thorns” trilogy–I also enjoyed his “Otherland” series, though that’s more sci-fi than fantasy.

  2. Wanted so say thanks for stopping by my blog (Alligators & Aneurysms). Was happy to see Victor Milan and Patrick Rothfuss on your docket as well (I’m looking at an AMA of Victor Milan on Reddit right now).

    Will stay tuned for reviews! 🙂

  4. Sarah, I love your site and the care you’ve put into your reviews. I ran across the title “The Summer That Melted Everything” just yesterday and I found your review today. I am glad to find a blogger with literary interests that expand my own (I love YA lit, and Children’s Lit.) Thanks and keep up the good work!
