Dead Beat by Jim Butcher: Book Review

My Review My Rating: 5/5 SPOILER FREE If it hadn’t been for the positive reviews for Dead Beat and the later books in Jim Butcher‘s The Dresden Files series, I probably wouldn’t have read another book in the series after Blood Rites. I am so glad that I did! Dead Beat feels like The Prisoner

Urban fantasy was never my sort of thing, but Jim Butcher’s writing is funny, engaging, and makes me want to flip onto

Storm Front by Jim Butcher: Book Review

My Review My Rating: 3/5 SPOILER FREE I tried to read Storm Front by Jim Butcher last year and I had to put it down after a few chapters. I’ve never liked urban fantasy. All those classic mystery books bored the hell out of me. And Harry Dresden was a bit of a dick who
