Welcome to my first First Read of 2019! It’s a new year, and I’ve picked up a new trilogy to go exploring in: Laini Taylor’s Daughter of Smoke and Bone Trilogy, beginning with (of course) Daughter of Smoke and Bone. In this post, I am charmed, fascinated and filled with empathetic rage. So, we’re off to a great start! Spoilers follow for chapters 1-7.
Welcome to 2019! My first post of the new year (while I recover from the most spectacularly badly timed cold EVER) is a special guest post from a long-time blogger friend – Andrea Johnson of The Little Red Reviewer, who is out and about this month promoting a Kickstarter! There’s more on that at a link below, so read on!

This week’s Top Ten is all about what I’m pulling off the shelves to cosy up with this winter, and there are so many options.

So I fell off this bandwagon a little bit over the last few weeks, but I am climbing back aboard this week to share with you ten of my most anticipated book releases of 2019! (This week’s prompt was a freebie, I am just really super excited about all these new stories!) Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish, and is now hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl.
In this episode, Halliday’s political progress gathers steam – while Tremontaine’s machinations might just have suffered a setback. And I (finally) got what I’d hoped for with Rafe and Reza – and more besides… Let’s discuss Tremontaine.
In this episode, some goodbyes are finally, properly said, while everyone’s looking to their future – or at least just their present, for now. And I am not OK. Let’s discuss Tremontaine.
It is December 1st. HOW DID THIS HAPPEN. Regardless, before I turn my attention to work, work, Christmas and work for the next few weeks, let’s take a look back at the sheer madness that was November!
Well, it is now the final day of this year’s Sci-Fi Month celebration. My recap will go live tomorrow, but for now I’ve got one more round of thoughts, feelings and general flailing excitement to share as I dive into the final part of The Long Way to a Small Angry Planet, following the excellent Twitter chat held on Sunday by your, my, our beloved @joriestory. CAUTION: There will be spoilers!
