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: November 2017

November found me a long way off my reading game. I had some time-consuming personal commitments which chewed into my reading time. And I DNFed two books this month. Combined, it makes for the worst reading month I’ve had all year. Of course, acquisitions haven’t slowed down at all. I managed to pick up some […]

Mt TBR Report: October 2017

With two months left to go, I think I can give up on any vague hope I had of breaking even on Mt TBR this year. Though, to be fair, October is both birthday month and Conflux, so I didn’t really stand a chance. Fortunately, my other reading goals are looking good. The first was […]

Mt TBR Report: September 2017

September is traditionally a difficult month for me due to the sheer number of personal and professional commitments I have. This year was certainly no exception, leading to my poorest month for reading so far this year. What reading I did tended towards light romances. I managed to compound the situation by acquiring way too […]

Mt TBR report: June 2017

2017 is now half over and I have met my initial annual reading goal of 100 books. I’ve decided to go ahead and set a new target. Without the Aurealis Awards to spur me on, my reading pace has slowed, so I think 200 books isn’t realistic. However, 150 books should be achievable. June was […]
