Meet me in the future: Stories by Kameron Hurley

Meet me in the future by Kameron HurleyElephants and Corpses was my very first introduction to Kameron Hurley’s writing several years back when Tor had it on their site. It was a first class story that made a lasting impression, yet its only in the last year that I have started buying and reading more of Hurley’s work. I sit back now and want to kick myself. So of course when I saw this on NetGalley I hit request as fast as I could and then put everything else on the backburner as soon as I was approved, even though I had a couple of months before it’s release day.

Aftershocks by Marko Kloos

Finally a Sci-fi that didn’t leave me feeling stupid.

The time has finally come, he is out, it’s time to head home, to his planet Gretia. Deciding to take the long route, he buys passage on a cargo ship. All goes well until they are hit by pirates and left drifting in an escape pod. Continue reading “Aftershocks by Marko Kloos”

One Word Kill by Mark Lawrence

A review or a gushy word spew, you decide.

It’s 1986, Nick has just been diagnosed with cancer, someone is following him, the local psycho wants to get friendly with a knife, and his newest friend Mia is in trouble and he has to find a way to help her. So typical stuff for a 15yr old.

“We were a tribe who had always felt as if we were locked into a box that we couldn’t see. And when D&D came along, suddenly we saw both the box and the key.” Continue reading “One Word Kill by Mark Lawrence”

Stacking the shelves

mini haul

A weekly post where I can show off any new books? Yes please. 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, NetGalley, gifts and books from authors or publishers (haha as if I’ll get a book sent to me from a publisher).

O.W.L’s Magical Readathon

A Harry Potter inspired readathon

This is my fist time participating and I’m excited. Doing long running types of readathons/challenges is always a risky bet for me. I hate feeling like I’m forced to read something, I’m a total mood reader. But this looks really cool and I hate to feel like I’ve missed out. This readathon is different to any I’ve done before.
