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”

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.

All I want for Christmas is books, and more books

I hope you sang that, because I did as I was typing. This is going to be as simple as it sounds. A few books I hope to find under the Christmas tree. I know my Mum has gotten me a couple of books, but other than that, I’m not expecting anything. I didn’t give my husband a list this year.

Apocalypse Nyx by Kameron Hurley

A quick review

Do you ever have an author that you keep seeing around on the interwebs, but never in store where your likely to impulse buy, and your scared to branch out into new territory because you already have a lot of unread books on your shelves and if you try this author and they are as kick ass as you think they might be, you will end up with 10 more books on your shelves and admitting that you may well die under your tbr pile because there is absolutely zero chance of you catching up?
