    One thought on “Postcards from Asgard”

    1. I love Norse mythology and retellings so I was thrilled to be given an ARC to read and review. Author Amalia Dillin had me at the dedication. Because Thor. That hammer. Right?! No doubt. As I dove into Gwen's story I found the writing to be clear, concise, and crisp. There weren't any wasted or frivolous words which made reading highly enjoyable. Dillin painted a world rooted in our own and colored with the fantastical. The magic woven through out was beautifully done. I loved Gwen's world; her [...]

    2. I am in love with Amalia's writing. Everything of hers that I pick up I don't want to put down until I'm done with it. This book was no exception. It's a short read, but it doesn't feel incomplete or underdeveloped like many novellas feel. I love the characterization, the goats, the postcards. A fun read that's totally satisfying.

    3. 3.5 starsHa! This was a cute novella. I'd give it a four, except that I'm not a big fan of "love at first sight, let's get married" - even though it does work for the story. Loads of Norse fun, plus goats. You can't go wrong with goats.

    4. I was eternally lucky enough to be given an ARC of this marvellous novella, and I am honoured to be able to give it a glowing review. ♥Gwen is a normal, unremarkable Midwestern girl. She rides horses, raises goats, makes soap and cheese. So when she discovers two goats from hell doing their best to destroy her barn, and receives a mysterious postcard from their apparent owner, she is understandably angry. Even when they are followed by a farmhand with the looks of a Norse god and the manners o [...]

    5. I'm not usually a big romance fan, but I rally enjoyed this book. I mean, there was sexy language learning and magic postcards and angry goats and Thor. How could this be bad? Very fun story :D

    6. I loved it! I really got involved with the characters and enjoyed experiencing their adventures with them!

    7. Thjalfi is a minor character from the Prose Edda (and an even more minor character in the Poetic Edda) but Dillin took the character and definitely made him her own. She turns him into a charming farmhand who surprisingly turned out to be a deep thinker and loyal. Not to mention he sounds easy on the eyes. Gwen is a hard working farm-girl who is as stubborn as the goats she milks. She’s completely independent and comfortable with her lifestyle tending to her goats, horses, chickens, and cats. [...]

    8. Another good storyI love her stories. Good character development, nice plot lines, good flow. My only complaint was that I was checking my progress on my kindle and it looked like I was at 75%. Then all of the sudden, the story was over! The rest of the book was excerpts from the author's other books. I was left wanting more.

    9. Fun little romp, though the MC rather made me roll my eyes a lot. Eh, for a fun little book I snagged as a freebie, worth the day of intermittent reading time.
