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: September 2018

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!)
