I got a lovely mix of review books this week. PYR in particular sent me three books. Goodness gracious! I was also super super excited to receive MORTAL GODS, THE SEAT OF MAGIC, A BARRICADE IN HELL and BITTER GREENS. I can’t read through these fast enough!!



Bitter Greens by Kate Forsyth | Goodreads | a historical retelling of Rapunzel

A Barricade in Hell by Jaime Lee Moyer | Goodreads |  – My review of book 1: DELIA’S SHADOW goes live 6/16/14 (Monday)

Mortal Gods by Kendare Blake | Goodreads |  – check out my review of Book1: ANTIGODDESS

The Seat of Magic by J. Kathleen Cheney| Goodreads | I adored her first book with selkie and seria in an alternate history fantasy Portugal. See my review of Book1: THE GOLDEN CITY

Falling Sky by Rajan Khanna | Goodreads |  – zombie-esque? pirates? Yeah I can do this baby

Grudge Bearer by J.F. Lewis | Goodreads |  – hey Fantasy – and there is a dragon on the cover!

The Leopard by K.V. Johansen | Goodreads |  – This sounds like some really cool epic fantasy

Shattering the Ley by Joshua Palmatier | Goodreads |  – Mogsy @ The Bibliosanctum was awesome enough to send me her extra copy and it sounds realllly cool. Be not fooled by the scary typography on the front.

NICE DRAGONS FINISH LAST by Rachel Aaron | Goodreads | – AND WAIT!!! This one is what I’m totally going GA GA over because as you all well know I LOVED the RACHEL BACH Paradox Trilogy so when Rachel Aaron (aka Rachel Bach) put out a update that she was looking for some reviewers to read her upcoming self published book NICE DRAGONS FINISH LAST, I swooped in and begged for a copy. Isn’t the cover gorgeous? It’s urban fantasy with DRAGONS! See my interview with her

Nice Dragons Finish Last



So I bought a bunch of of books recently. These are the ones I have on hand. The other batch I ordered from (I think over 10 books…yes I have a buying addition ok?) So I’ll show that goodie box when it arrives.

Malice by John Gwynne

The Obsidian Pebble by Rhys Jones

Steampunk II edited by Ann & Jeff Vandermeer

Midnight Riot by Ben Aaronovitch

Shadow Ops: Control Point by Myke Cole

Equoid by Charles Stross



On the last day of BEA (BookCon day) I didn’t have anymore room in my carry on or checked bags for my plane flight so I had to mail myself a box. I was a dummy and already shelved them all as soon as I got them. So honestly – I know I got a bunch of graphic novels. Mouse Guard vol 2, Tanpopo vol 2,  Rust – Visitor in the Field, Darklight, 28 Days Later, Clive Barker’s Next Testament, a TON of single first issues (for those of you that don’t know – the IMAGE COMICS booth always gives away a ton of free single issue, first issue comics.


 Marvelous Things I Found This Week

So I’ve had a pretty awful week. My toddler came down with an absolutely nasty case of the ikkie ikkies and couldn’t go to daycare all week. Plus I was on call for work – and when I mean on call I mean I was getting calls constantly all hours of the night – very NOT pleasant. But really there is always someone that somehow manages to brighten my day. So here I’m sharing it with you!

Nikki @ There Were Books Involved mentioned me in her BEA wrap-up post as a blogger she aspired to be. I think my jaw about dropped. This is her giving lots of love and shout outs to all many of the people she met at BEA. I love seeing how enthusiastic everyone is about the new people they get to meet and hopefully become friends with.

And then another blogger I adore pimped me as one of her favorite fantasy blogs!

I also found this little pearl of wisdom

And stumbled upon a blog post putting out the stats on just how many of us women really DO play video games. A lot I tell you – A LOT.

And you all know how I love fan art – I was super excited when I found this tweet putting out fan art of actual authors. The other figuers are Myke Cole and Delilah Dawson (I guess them right hehe)

Stalk me!

When I'm in the zone I can flip book pages faster than the eye can see - screaming "More Input!" I'm a book, yarn, & art supply hoarding goblin who loves to draw, make toys and craft all sorts of creepy cute things. My current habit is to listen to audio books while I'm arting it up!
Stalk me!

    Sorry to hear about the bebe. I hope things are better there soon.

    I liked the video game article, and agree, games should be more feminist. I have been a gamer a long time, as have you, and it would be nice to have stuff that is reflective of us. Not all games can be Animal Crossing and Skyrim, I suppose.

    As for books, this weekend I am reading The Fourth Stall, knitting magazines, and beading magazines.

      The little guy is definitely getting better. It was a rough past seven days that is for sure.

      I think Skyrim came out when I was pregnant. I have my copy installed but I think I started it and got violently motion sick because of the pregnancy. Ah yes it’s all coming back now. I must try again now and see if I can handle it. I notice after having Colin that I get motion sick way easier and I was already prone to it with some video games. Like Bioshock…sweet hot totties did I want to play that game but I just about puked after three attempts.

      I haven’t knit in awhile, I prefer crochet and love making amigurumi toys. What you knitting? I have a bead collection too! Course I only ever used them to make book markers lol.

    I found your blog through Emily at Oh Magic Hour and Nikki’s #SandersonArmy list! They are totally right to pimp you out. Your blog is excellent!

    I’m so excited for the new Rachel Aaron book! I love her Eli Monpress series as well as the Paradox series! I got it to review also. I read it one sitting. It’s fantastic! I can’t wait to hear your thoughts on it!

    You got so many great books. And, yes. That is indeed Myke Cole and Delilah S. Dawson. I love all of those authors in that picture!

    Haha, the title font for Shattering the Ley truly is awful. Ooh, Barricade in Hell! I want to read that, but I still have yet to read Delia’s Shadow and I think I should first before tackling it.

      I thought you’d read Delia’s Shadow already! Oh you will enjoy it I think. It’s got a smidge of romance too. I just finished writing my review. I really liked it.

      Awful font! Ruins the beauty of that cover totally!
