PLEASE NOTE: I'm rarely active here anymore, but please feel free to follow me on Goodreads, where I post regularly.
These are the chronicles of a book addict, a photo junkie, and an aspiring author, rewriting the very fabric of reality one page (and one snapshot) at a time. From the strange to the unusual; the abandoned to the abnormal; the haunted to the historic; the supernatural to the surreal; the forests of dark fantasy, the cemeteries of gothic horror, and the post-apocalyptic ruins of science fiction are the landscapes of my imagination.
A fantastic week, including my wildly popular Canada Day feature, and a look back at my favorite books of the year (so far):
My cold turkey approach to requesting any new review titles is going well. I actually did request one new title this week (a September release) but haven't been approved yet, so that doesn't count. :)
I did, however, use my Amazon credit to pick up a few books. After having friends and fellow blogers rave about the latest installment in each series, I finally gave into curiosity and snagged copies of A Natural History of Dragons by Marie Brennan,Blood and Iron by Jon Sprunk, and Three Parts Dead by Max Gladstone. Better late to the bandwagon than never!
• Esoterrorism by C.T. Phipps
Ragnarok always puts out great stuff, and this sounds like it could be a lot of fun, so we'll see what kind of magic and monsters it has to offer.
• Forge of Darkness by Steven Erikson
I was disappointed in The Crippled God, so I passed on this when it was first released, but I picked up the paperback in anticipation of Fall of Light and I'm enjoying it immensely.
