Mt TBR Report: October 2018

October was my birthday month and one of my gifts was a Kobo e-reader (to help me break free of Amazon’s evil clutches). So, I might have got a little excited with purchases. I also borrowed a pile of books on journaling from a friend. Even my voracious reading this month wasn’t enough to help […]

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 @ […]

Ignite the Stars by Maura Milan

This week I’m over at the Skiffy and Fanty Show with a review of Ignite the Stars by Maura Milan. This sci-fi YA is a fun, action-packed adventure, but one which could have dug a bit deeper. (Hard to go past that cover, though!)

Mt TBR Report: June 2018

June was a surprisingly good month for my Mt TBR, despite the fact I attended Continuum. A judicious cull and a last-minute binge read meant I actually managed to shrink the pile a little. However, there’s still a way to go if I hope to break even this year. Mt TBR Status Mt TBR @ […]

Mt TBR Report: May 2018

My reading for May was slightly less intensely focused on the Hugo Awards. Things have been very busy in the lead up to Continuum and I found I had to break things up with some lighter fare. Judging from my book count for the month, it looks like last month’s binge is easing off… however, […]

Ida by Alison Evans

Next weekend I’ll be attending Continuum, a speculative fiction convention held in Melbourne. Whenever I’m attending a convention, I always like to try to review something by one of the Guests of Honour. This year, Continuum is playing host to Alison Evans, one of Australia’s up-and-coming talents in YA SFF. Their debut novel Ida won […]

In the Dark Spaces by Cally Black

This week I’m over at the Skiffy and Fanty Show with a review of In the Dark Spaces by Cally Black. This is a very dark YA sci-fi horror that explores the myth of Terra Nullius and the flaws in capitalism in a way that’s accessible for young readers.
