The Month That Was…October 2013

Happy Halloween! I’m off to World Fantasy Con shortly but I thought I’d leave you with a round up of the last month. Things have been a little slow on the blog the last few weeks, I think the readathon did me in. But hopefully I will have lots to talk about next week.

Here’s what made it onto the blog…


5 stars awarded to: Parasite by Mira Grant, Chimes at Midnight by Seanan McGuire + Maggot Moon by Sally Gardner.

Disappointed with: Tainted by A.E. Rought

Read and awaiting review: The One Plus One by Jojo Moyes, The Echo by James Smythe + Anno Dracula by Kim Newman.

Blogged about:

I did a mini Books by Numbers bookshelf tour and gave you sleep deprived waffle during Dewey’s 24 Hour Readathon. Some discussions on Twitter got me thinking about love triangles.

Memes, events + challenges:
Incoming! (6th Oct)
Incoming! (20th Oct)
What a Wonderful World on (blog) Tour

    Hope you enjoyed WFC Ellie. My reading is going better at the moment but my reviewing is really really slow. Hope that changes soon. Hope you have a good month in November.
