Hi all, Long time no see. I'll get straight to the point - this blog is going to be dormant for a while (again). With everything going on in the world right now, including a busy fulltime job, the last thing I want to do in my evenings and weekends is sit in front of… Continue reading February 2021 Update: Instagram and Twitter
Blog Update June 2020: I’m Back (Part 2)
This is the second post about my return to blogging. Click here if you want to read the first bit (which covers more bookish related things), and read below if you want to find out some of the things I have been doing since November 2019. The next blog post will be fully about books so if the personal stuff doesn't interest you, not all hope is lost.
Blog Update June 2020: I’m Back (Part 1)
So, hello. I'm back.
BC: October 2019 TBR
Here's a rather optimistic (if loosely-planned) TBR for OCtober 2019. Please point me toward your own TBRs for this month - I've been slacking a bit on the blogging
Review: Space Opera (Space Opera #1) – Catherynne M. Valente
352 pages | Corsair | Read by Heath Miller for HighBridge Company| Science Fiction, Space Opera, Humour, SFF I read this as part of 2019's Space Opera September Readathon (TBR here). The digest: Space Opera is a rather perplexing novel which sometimes reads more like an encyclopaedia than a fiction story. This is sometimes good, sometimes bad, but overall… Continue reading Review: Space Opera (Space Opera #1) – Catherynne M. Valente
Review: Radioactive Evolution – Richard Hummel
The digest: a great introduction to the litRPG genre. Give this one a look if you're a fan of RPG, dragons, and defined methods of characters growing stronger. Radioactive Evolution is a solid, entertaining read suitable for most fantasy fans.
BC: August 2019 TBR
After a long period of slow reading, in August I'm planning on cracking on with eight books. Check them out!
Review: The Temptation of King Midas (Alcyon #2) – Richard Marazano and Christophe Ferreira (Illustrator)
The digest: building on everything that made the first volume so enjoyable, I cannot recommend this comic book highly enough to anyone with an interest in Greek myths and retellings. If you have read my review for Alcyon #1, you already know pretty much everything I'm going to say here.
Review: The Only Living Girl #1: The Island at the Edge of Infinity – David Gallaher & Steve Ellis (illustrations)
The digest: Enjoyable artwork and cool character design, but probably only worth a look if you've read the previous series (The Only Living Boy).
Review: Straight Outta Fangton – C.T. Phipps
The digest: A highly entertaining paranormal urban fantasy showing the less glamorous side of vampiric life. This is not a serious tome focusing solely on vampirism and all it entails - though you will find gruesome and gritty elements here in heaps. It's a pop-culture referencing, smoothly written, funny, easily digestible, and highly recommended break away from both the overly-serious Dracula tales and the flowery Twilight books.
