Reading progress update: I've read 15%.
Uncanny Magazine Issue 9: March/April 2016 - Jim C. Hines,Max Gladstone,Michael Damian Thomas,Mark Oshiro,Shveta Thakrar,Rachel Swirsky,Javier Grillo-Marxuach,Lynne M. Thomas,Daryl Gregory,Simon Guerrier

Currently reading: "The Shadow Collector" by Shveta Thakrar


The opening lines of this are just magical.


In the garden where girls grew from flowers, their days washed in the distant trills of the queen's wooden flute, a gardener toiled. His name was Rajesh, and in his spare time, he collected shadows. Shadows of nectar-loving hummingbirds, shadows of laughing fathers, shadows of hawks who preyed on squirrels.


You know what the best part of short fiction is? That you can devour it whenever you have a spare moment. Even at work ;).

You and Me, Always - Jill Mansell

You know where this book is going as soon as you've met the leading characters but on the way there's plenty of humour, an idyllic village in a beautiful setting. A happy go lucky type of story, where everyone gets what they deserve and the reader is left smiling! Take it on holiday as it's light, frothy and enjoyable.

The Roundup



Sadly, real life elbowed its way into my reading time, and much of my leisure time, during the month of March so I didn't get much done. Only 2 books and 1 novella managed to get read. Here's the round up:


Shatter the Bones - Stuart MacBride Close to the Bone - Stuart MacBride  The 45% Hangover [A Logan and Steel novella] (Kindle Single) - Stuart MacBride 


 Look at them. They look so sad and lonely.

Well, the good news is that despite not having much time, and the sad look of this post with those 3 wee guys up there, at least I was able to feed my Logan McRae obsession. Shatter the Bones (Book 7), Close to the Bone (Book 8), and the novella, The 45% Hangover (8.5) were great. I'm loving the character development that Logan has undergone in the series so far. Eight books in and the series still manages to surprise. All three garnered 4 stars

March 2016 Reviews


I don't see myself finishing any reviews tonight, so here's my March 2016 review collage. I currently have two audiobook reviews, one movie review, and one manga review waiting to be written. Very soon, that number will go up by one e-book and another manga volume. Maybe I can put a dent in my review backlog this weekend.


Favorite Cover:


How To Breathe Fire - Shona Husk 


I like this one, even though, after reading the work, I realize it has some issues. It could be considered spoiler-y.


Runner Up:


His Favorite, Vol. 4 - Suzuki Tanaka 


One of the rare His Favorite covers in which Yoshida is not making a weird face. Sato and Yoshida actually look like an okay couple here, and not so much like Yoshida would scurry away (or run screaming away) the first chance he got.
