Music Monday

It’s Monday, the start of another working week and to distract us from the humdrum of work I’m bringing you another song I love. This was started by the Drew over at The Tattooed Book Geek make sure you check him out.

Some Aussie rock for your Monday. This is from their brand new album. I may be completely wrong, but I’m 99% sure one of my friends travelled with these guys back in the day.

Sci-Fi wrap up

What’s next?

Sci-Fi month has come to an end. A big thank you to our two lovely hosts, Lisa and Imyril both had a massive job on their hands and they nailed it.
I said at the start of November that reading more Sci-Fi was one of my goals this year and I think it’s safe to say I’ve done way better than I expected. Throughout November I managed to smash out a series that I’ve had on my shelves for years and another couple from NetGalley. I realised that there is so much more to the Sci-Fi genre than spaceships and other worlds. Continue reading “Sci-Fi wrap up”

Stacking The Shelves

Sci-Fi Month Edition

Stacking the shelves Picture - Saturday memeA weekly post where I can brag about my new books? Yes please. Granted I definitely won’t have something to post every week, I’ll just do it as required. I will be including everything from my purchases, to NetGalley, gifts and books from authors.
For more information head over to Tynga’s Reviews.

As it’s Sci-Fi Month, I may have got a little click happy over in NetGalley. Also, I took full advantage of a couple of authors having their first books on Amazon for free. I think at least 90% of the books I gathered over the last 6 weeks are Sci-Fi. Continue reading “Stacking The Shelves”

WWW Wednesday

Sci-fi edition

I’ve come across a weekly meme that I can do, but will probably only do every now and then. It’s super simple, which I love.
Hosted by Taking on a World of Words you answer 3 questions and hey presto, you are all done.

What are you currently reading?
What did you recently finish reading?
What do you think you’ll read next?

I’m still on a sci-fi kick due to sci-fi month, so I’m currently reading Betrayal by Pippa DaCosta. I’m 33% in and I’m not sold. I’m glad it’s only a 200 page book as I’m not sure I would keep going if it was much longer. It’s my first book by her and I have a few others on my kindle, so I hope they are an improvement.

I recently finished Shadow City by Anna Mocikat. It’s light sci-fi, end of days kind of thing. Humans are almost wiped out, creatures have entered our world and the vampires have come out of hiding. Hopefully I will have a review up soon.

Next up I plan on finishing Chasing Graves by Ben Galley and getting stuck into Skycircus by Peter Bunzl. I have loved Chasing Graves so far, but put it on hold for sci-fi month and Skycircus is a fun, magical middle grade read.

Another band I came across by accident and now almost all of their songs are in my playlist. I love her voice.

The Quiet At The End Of The World by Lauren James

A review or a ramble?

I think I should warn you all now, this is going to be mostly fan-girling, shouting and to many of these !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The Quiet at the end of the world by Lauren JamesLauren James!!! What a magnificent author. Truly talented. I fucking love her!!!! I love her brand of Sci-Fi. She has such a distinct way of writing female characters, science, and diversity, that I think I could pick her books just by reading a couple of chapters. There are so many good things in this book that I might just going to make dot points.
