The Worldcon diaries continue! Today I’m going to talk about Friday’s adventures, which were considerably more adventurous than Thursday’s!
I am home and recovering my brain power after five wonderful days of nerdery at Worldcon in Dublin. And as promised, here is the first of my daily recaps, diary-style. Apologies in advance for the inevitable exhausted memory lapses, I may not be recalling absolutely everything at this point…
So the time has finally come for me to finish Laini Taylor’s Daughter of Smoke & Bone trilogy, and as before I’ll be breaking this book down into segments and posting a weekly review/discussion post/wordflail about the chapters I read. In these opening chapters, the angels arrive on Earth and … everything’s going to hell. IRONICALLY. Oh, I’ve missed my messed up darlings. Let’s discuss Dreams of Gods & Monsters. Spoilers follow for chapters 1 through 10.
The nerd beacons are lit! Wyrd & Wonder calls for aid! And your TBR will (hopefully) answer. I admit it feels a little odd to be announcing this in the middle of a summer heatwave, but screw it – the team at Wyrd & Wonder are nothing if not excitable, and we’re already making plans. So it seems only fair to give you lot a chance to do the same. Announcing Spooktastic Reads 2019!
So the weather’s gotten abominably warm, to the point where I’m hydrating more than I’ve ever hydrated before. On the plus side, I’m on a wonderful streak of reading amazing books, and with August on the doorstep, Worldcon is that much closer! Let’s look at what July got done, and take a look ahead at some fun things coming soon!
Our heroes finally find what they set out looking for – but oh, the cost… Bittersweet barely describes it. Let’s burn it all down discuss The Bitter Twins. Spoilers follow for chapter 47 through to the end.
Tor and Noon go looking for answers, and only find more questions. Hestillion seizes the chance for more power, and finds herself making an irrevocable move. And Vintage is up to her eyes in political trouble. Everything’s fine here, how are you? Let’s discuss The Bitter Twins. Spoilers follow for chapters 35 through 46.
It’s time for another round of playing catch-up, and today I am (desperately) catching up with the Read-along for The Bitter Twins! I left things at Part 3 (AKA chapters 23 to 34) of the book, in which a lot of the focus seems to be on various characters’ relationships – mostly romantic, though not very secure … for various reasons. Nothing is OK. Nothing. Let’s discuss The Bitter Twins. (With spoilers!)
Hello, and welcome to (hopefully) the first of several ARC reviews to feature here this summer! I’m kicking off with a really good one, so grab an iced drink, grab a fan, and come and chill out while I geek out about Lord of Secrets by Breanna Teintze!
… Because it has been pretty damn hot around these very Scottish parts lately. Like, really. What is going on. Anyway! June was a month. Let’s recap it, shall we?
