October Recap: More Blankets Please!

October is over, the weather has turned, and it’s time for the heavier blankets to come out of their drawers. But even though the season might be playing havoc with my moods, I have emerged from a reading slump – and not a moment too soon…

Let’s recap.


So that reading slump I mentioned had an unfortunate effect on my Spooktastic Reads efforts – I only got through one of the books I’d planned to read. But one is better than none, and I did get a fair amount of reading and reviewing done this month so I’m trying not to feel too bad about it. And there will be future events, I’m sure! It seemed to go really well despite my own struggle with brain-fail. So epic thanks to everybody who participated, and the Wyrd and Wonder team will hopefully see you again in May for our main event!

Shelf Assessment

Tremontaine, Season 4

Building Bridges

A World of Change 

The Turning of the Tide

What Light in the Houses Beneath the Earth?

What The River Wants

At the time of writing this recap, Tremontaine is on a one-week hiatus but will resume this coming Wednesday. Which is good because a) this year Sci-Fi Month exploded in the best way, and b) my feelings and I are STILL NOT OK after that seventh episode. I will, of course, be resuming my reviews on the Wednesday following Episode Eight, outside of my Sci-Fi Month contributions. As if I would abandon my best serial!

What’s Next?

Science fiction. Lots and lots (and lots) of science fiction. At the time of writing this, imyril and I are four days into our hosting duties for Sci-Fi Month 2018, and the celebrations have gone off like rockets! There is so much happening, in fact, that I’d better clock off here and get my nose stuck back into a book to try and keep up!

Take your protein pills and put your helmet on…


One last note: If anyone is up for it, you can buy me a ko-fi! Caffeine is what keeps me going, and please do sling a link my way if there’s somewhere I can return the kindness!
