My Kyrosmagica Reviews N – Z


My A – Z list of book reviews has become so big and unwieldy that I’m in the process of splitting it into two lists. I have a whopping 98 reviews on my Goodreads page: Marje’s Goodreads Page

So with this in mind I’m splitting it alphabetically into two. You can find the A – M list here: Kyrosmagica A – M Book Reviews

It doesn’t quite divide perfectly so I thought what better place to begin than to start with an N… that’s the beginning of my eldest daughters name – Natasha – and she’s a bookworm too.

About Marje @ Kyrosmagica

Hi. Welcome to my blog, Kyrosmagica. A blog about magic, books, writing, laughter, and much more! I'm a debut writer in the process of finishing my first YA fantasy novel, set in Cambridge. I write book reviews on Net Galley and Goodreads. I have a penchant for travel and have relatives in far flung places, Australia, Malaysia, and Singapore, (my birthplace.) I grew up in in Bonnie Scotland, in Edinburgh, and now live in Cambridge. I love sunny, hot places, particularly Rome, Venice, Portugal, Barcelona, and I forgot to mention the sun drenched beaches of the Caribbean, how could I? I am lucky to have been blessed with two lovely daughters and a husband who I fondly refer to in this blog as my black sheep. Family joke! With my passion for travel, culture, beautiful beaches, good food, books, theatre, writing, and humour, I hope to keep you entertained. I'm loving every minute of this creative journey, please join me.
