Half bad

In literature, white witches are usually supposed to be good but I guess it’s all in perspective because in Half Bad, they seem to be evil instead of good, indiscriminately using torture and killing off other witches. The first volume in a trilogy, Half Bad is about a boy whose...

I shall wear midnight

I love the Tiffany Aching Adventures by Terry Pratchett. This book is excellent example of Terry Pratchett’s unique combination of humor, insight into the nature of humanity and compelling characters.
