This week’s check-in comes with a brand new look for Curiosity Killed the Bookworm! Yup, I’ve finally moved it from Blogger onto self-hosted WordPress after nearly ten years. I still have a few things to sort out and fiddle with, but hopefully the site will now be easier to browse, especially on mobile. I have over 1000 reviews (and another 1000 mostly-bookish posts) on this site, so it should be a great place to look for your next read (well if your tastes are similar to mine) if only you can find things.

A lot of the image formatting on existing posts are a bit wonky following the migration. I will slowly chip away at fixing this on popular posts, but they are all still readable. The image size will just vary greatly!

If you previously received my blog posts via email they should still come through, but I am planning on sorting out a better option for this.

I also managed to do some reading, including Winter’s Orbit which I have reviewed, and Black Sun which was my first five star read of the year. I will write about it in more detail when my brain has recovered from the blog migration…


It’s starting to get lighter in the evenings, so second walkies are back! Though it is very soggy and we can’t really walk anywhere fun.

New books acquired:
