  2. The Captain's Wallflower haiku made me laugh! I just read my first book by Kevin Hearne recently Ink & Sigil and have scheduled a review for August. I guess I should try his other urban fantasy series. :)

  6. Who needs to write long reviews when your haikus say all that needs to be said. LOL

    1. Thanks! And I love books that are set in the Amazon rain forest. Jungle is a pretty good read. I also really loved Lost in the Amazon and the Lost City of Z.

  15. An Urban fantasy?? I’ve never heard of that before. 🙂

    1. Think of the TV shows Supernatural or Charmed. Urban fantasies have magic and spells and creatures like vampires or werewolves but the story itself is usually set in a modern urban setting. :)
