I am definitely guilty of falling in love with the side characters in novels, especially in SFF, so I’m excited that I get to talk about them for this TTT! I’m not entirely sure if there is something specific about a minor character that attracts me, but I think the thing they all have in common is the way they each walk that line of being incredibly badass and soft-hearted at the same time, and it causes me to think “wow I wish I could be them” at the same time as thinking “I wish they could just hold me”, with a bonus feeling of “I just wish I could hold them” when they have tragic events occur.

I have lost all concept of time, so I feel surprised that April is over, but at the same time part of me has thought it has been May already for a couple of weeks. Ah well! This month I've read nine books, and am half-way through two others that I will only finish in… Continue reading April Wrap-Up
Review: Shards of Earth by Adrian Tchaikovsky
Idris has neither aged nor slept since they remade his mind in the war. And one of humanity’s heroes now scrapes by on a freelance salvage vessel, to avoid the attention of greater powers. Eighty years ago, Earth was destroyed by an alien enemy. Many escaped, but millions more died. So mankind created enhanced humans such as Idris - who could communicate mind-to-mind with our aggressors. Then these ‘Architects’ simply disappeared and Idris and his kind became obsolete. Now, Idris and his crew have something strange, abandoned in space. It’s clearly the work of the Architects – but are they really returning? And if so, why? Hunted by gangsters, cults and governments, Idris and his crew race across the galaxy as they search for answers. For they now possess something of incalculable value, and many would kill to obtain it.
April TBR & The Write Reads Challenge
I don't usually put together a monthly TBR, because I often tend to choose my next book based on how I feel after finishing the last one, but what with my NetGalley ARCS waiting, Wyrd And Wonder coming up in May, and the fact that I'll be participating in The Write Reads April Challenge over on Instagram, I thought I'd put together a list to keep me focused.
