  • The Leaning Pile of Books

    Hopefully there will be two new reviews over the next week. Last night I finished a draft of a review of The Gaslight Dogs by Karin Lowachee, and I’ve started a review of World’s End by Joan D. Vinge (which will probably be short anyway since the book was not very long). I’d like to get both of those written by the time I’m done reading The Praxis so there is only one left to get caught up on. I’ve […]

  • New Books by Ginn Hale

    A little while ago I found out some very exciting news for fans of Ginn Hale – she has not one but two new books coming out later this year! Ever since I read Wicked Gentlemen, I’ve been wishing she had more books I could devour so this news has made my night. Now I just can’t wait for the sequel to Wicked Gentlemen… These books are part of a new two-part series with the second half released only one […]

  • The Leaning Pile of Books

    Another week with not enough reviews written (Changeless draft is done though!), but I wouldn’t be surprised if that were the case until this summer. Recently I found out we have to move at the end of May, but now we may have to by the end of this month. And then we’ll only be moving out for two months and then moving back. With all the chaos, I’ve been mostly reading books that are somewhat short because I just […]
