Reviews at Fangs for the Fantasy

Some catch up of the stuff we've been doing over at Fangs

As every our archives are here: Book Reviews, TV/Film Reviews, Discussions Archive and Podcast Archive. Please feel free to join us on  our weekly podcast to discuss the shows we’re watching, our book of the week – and mock Tami for reading the dreadful 50 Shades of Grey.

Our Friday Discussions and Other Genre Musings
In our discussions we look at:

In cover snarks we continue to look at the dubious books covers Urban Fantasy authors are often stuck with, including: Facial Expressions, Broken Spines and Exposed Bellies,  

In Face Offs we’ve set Twilight vs The Hunter Games, a variety of protagonists against each other to see which has had the Worst Idea Ever, and a number of marginalised side characters to see who is the Most Blatant Token

These reviews link to our latest recaps, but all previous episodes can be found through the tags or through the archive.

In older series, we’re looking back on, recapping and discussing Being Human (UK), the Dresden Files, Charmed and Blood Ties,

We have a few series that are gearing up towards their season finales that we’re eagerly following - Once Upon a Time, Grimm, The Vampire Diaries and Secret Circle (ok, not that eager with Secret Circle, but there’s snark). We also covered the season finales of Being Human (US), Alcatraz and Lost Girl

Season 2 of Game of Thrones has started and joined the programmes we’re reviewing, discussing and recapping.

With all our book reviews – if we’re reviewing a later book in a series that means we’ve already reviewed previous books in the series and it’s in our archive or you can follow with the author’s tag.
