Being a bit of a sucker for video game novels (or well, okay, video games in general…) I had to accept this one from the wonderful Titan Books when it was offered. The Fable series is a fantastic one, allowing the player to take control of a hero and decide the destiny of Albion, as […]

I think this is something that has been done on many blogs before, but it’s always nice to get individual perspectives. I wanted to share my tips for new book bloggers, or maybe even useful tips for those who have been blogging for a bit longer! Social media is your friend. Twitter might be terrifying […]

Whoops! I feel that pretty much sums up the past year for me in terms of blogging though – it’s been very patchy. Whilst studying I could barely work up the enthusiasm or energy to blog very often, and I definitely didn’t read as much as previous years. Now I’m working rather than studying so […]

Announcement: Sci-Fi Month 2015

Yes, Sci-Fi Month is returning for its third year! This year, with my studies over, I hope to be a much better hostess – I really cannot thank Kelley and Asti @ Oh, the Books! enough for their help last year. The announcement is coming a little later than I hoped, but what with moving […]
