Mt TBR Report: August 2018

  My Mt TBR cracked 400 books this month; I may have a problem. I can’t even blame it on the Aurealis judging this time. Instead, I found myself picking up a lot of romance novels… even though it’s going to take me a while to get to them. Mt TBR Status Mt TBR @ […]

The Dark Days Club by Alison Goodman

My very first review for The Skiffy and Fanty Show is up. The Dark Days Club (or Lady Helen and the Dark Days Club, if you’re looking for the Australian edition) by Alison Goodman is a story about demon hunting in Regency London. Head on over to hear my thoughts!

Mt TBR report: April 2017

April was already a great month for my reading, but it was nice to have Dewey’s readathon to give it an extra boost. Mt TBR has increased a little with the release of the shortlists for the Hugos and the Ditmars. However, the award shortlists also mean I’m not having any trouble meeting my new […]

Mt TBR Wrap-up: January 2017

2017 got off to an epic start. With the deadline for Aurealis judging breathing down my neck, I’ve been tearing through the books faster than I’ve been acquiring them. At the rate I’m going, I should have no trouble making it to 100 books by the end of the year. In fact, I’m thinking of […]

Mt TBR report: July 2016

July wasn’t my slowest month for reading this year, but it came close. I’ve been very unfocused, thanks to my competing reading schedules (Aurealis, Hugo, reviewing). I’ve started quite a few books but not managed to finish many. However, I’m still hanging in there, even if Mt TBR is getting a little out of control. […]
