BC: July/ August content

I thought I’d let you guys know what I plan on posting in the coming weeks – if you see anything below you would like to read sooner rather than later let me know and I’ll do what I can.


Later on today, I will be posting my next TBRindr review, Kevin Wright’s The Clarity of Cold Steel. I enjoyed this one so you might want to free up some space on your TBR if you’re into unique takes on speculative fiction narratives!

In terms of reviews, I have already written posts about Natasha Pulley’s The Bedlam Stacks, Emma Newman’s Weaver’s Lament (Industrial Magic 2), and Stephen Graham Jones’ The Night Cyclist. I’m looking at posting one review a week or so in order to give myself time to read books and write more content without hurrying myself. I enjoyed these books to varying levels, but I will definitely be looking into more stories from Stephen Graham Jones so comment below if you have any favourites, please 🙂


I am writing a review for Samuel Gately’s The Fire Eye Refugee so that will be posted before the end of July if I can work it into my schedule. I received ebook copies of the book in return for an honest review, and to give a bit of a spoiler: I enjoyed it quite a lot. They each offer something new (to me) in the fantasy genre and if you’re on the fence about reading it I encourage you to take the jump and buy it. I also have a tentative review for Sarah J Maas’ A Court of Thorns and Roses, which I really didn’t get along with at all. It’s quite a long and ranty review, but I’ll carry on working polishing for a while longer before posting.


I have received a few books for me to review from authors as part of the TBRindr programme. These include David Oliver’s The Great Hearts (audio), as well as ebooks of A.J. Norfield’s Windcatcher and Rob J. Hayes’ City of Kings. They aren’t short books and they are also at the tail-end of my reading list so these might end up being August posts.


I’m currently reading Caraval by Stephanie Garber (which is quite a fun and easy read), as well as trying to finish Atwood’s The Handmaid’s Tale on audio (not going so well – I can’t motivate myself to listen to the final hour). After these, I’ll be moving onto a closed and common orbit by Becky Chambers and the other books listed just above.


I will end each month with a wrap-up and maybe a couple of camera discussion pieces.


Let me know if you have any preference for what gets posted soonest, as well as telling me about your thoughts on the book. As always, thanks for reading 🙂

  1. The fire eye refuge stands out simply because you mentioned enjoying it, but I’m really looking forward to your Sarah J maas review. I’ve been wondering if I should try a book – I’m interested in hearing your thoughts on the book.

    1. Thanks for reading and leaving a comment 🙂 I’ll try to get the Maas review out this week then so keep your eye out. I was really disappointed by it to honest and the review so far consists of me explaining exactly what went wrong. Not everyone will like my review but hey ho
