November TBR: SciFiMonth

Banner credit: This year’s SciFiMonth artwork is by the amazingly talented Simon Fetscher. Even though I've spent half the past month thinking it's already November, it is at last here and with it comes the epic event that is SciFiMonth, organised by the delightful Lisa at Dear Geek Place and Imyril at There's Always Room For One… Continue reading November TBR: SciFiMonth

Spooktastic Reads, TBR

It’s Spooktastic Season!

We are entering the last 13 Days of October, which means it’s time for Spooktastic Reads, our Wyrd and Wonder mini event! In case you missed my announcement post earlier this month, it’s a very relaxed blogging event to celebrate all things dark and eerie within fantasy.

The Mid Year Check In 2022

It's almost mid-July (does time speed up as you get older? help!) and I wasn't actually going to do a mid-year check in, because I've been quiet and demotivated, and figured I'd missed the train on it, but if my dear friend BookForager can post hers this week, then so can I! And hopefully it'll… Continue reading The Mid Year Check In 2022

April 2022 Wrap Up

It's the end of April, which means only one thing... [insert gif here] It's gonna be May! And with May comes the joy of Wyrd & Wonder! But more on that tomorrow... For now I'm going to be looking back on April and how I somehow managed to read 15 books in one month, including my current Book of the Year.

March 2022 Warp Up

March has been a weird month - I was in South Africa on holiday for the first two weeks of the month, and as I wasn't keeping track of days it almost felt like the passing time didn't count. I was very confused then, when I got back, to find myself in the middle of… Continue reading March 2022 Warp Up

February 2022 Wrap Up

Somehow, I have repeated my January feat of 10 books for this month as well, taking me up to 20 total for the year so far! I'm not really fussed about reaching a high target at all, but I think my desire to plow through the TBR and clear my shelves for new things has… Continue reading February 2022 Wrap Up

January 2022 Wrap Up

I feel like I say this in every wrap up post, but the last month has been both the longest one and also I can't believe another January has already come to an end. This time last year I was furloughed and this year I am exhausted from work - both have grateful moments but… Continue reading January 2022 Wrap Up

2021: My Year in Books

For those who know me, I've always been a book lover, but the last couple of years have seen me a little more hyper-focused on reading than usual - I started writing on this blog, I joined book twitter and met other bloggers, readers, and writers, and I've been working in a bookshop where I… Continue reading 2021: My Year in Books

SciFiMonth Wrap Up & Mini Reviews

It’s the last day of November, which means my first SciFiMonth is coming to an end. Back in May, when doing Wyrd and Wonder, I said to myself I probably wouldn’t join in on the SF equivalent, because I’d only just read one or two SF novels and didn’t have enough lying around to be able to dedicate a month to the genre. But I had forgotten that I am an unstoppable force when it comes to buying books, and by the middle of the year I found myself in possession of quite a few SF books, as well as multiple NetGalley ARCs. And so, I have spent the last 30 days enjoying and discovering this genre, which is a great way to head towards the end of the year. I don’t have the time, sadly, to give each book the individual review they deserve, so I thought I’d do a SciFiMonth Mini Review roundup to look back on some of my latest reads!
