Cover Reveal: Wrath of Storms by Steven McKinnon

I'm really happy to let you know that Steven McKinnon was kind enough to ask me to take part in his cover reveal. My first response was: hell yeah! I've been following his career ever since I've read Symphony of the Wind as part of SPFBO. It was, in fact Fantasy Book Review's finalist and we all loved it.  The sequel, Wrath of Storms will be released on August 8th!

SPFBO Edition: Helen B. Henderson

Tales from the Asylum is a new feature I came up with for SPFBO. I wanted to create a unique opportunity for the authors to show off their story telling skills by taking their characters and putting them in an asylum room to see how they would deal with the situation. A lot can happen in a closed space...

The Questioning: David Hambling

The Questioning is where everything gets upside down. Every month I invite one author and one blogger, who showed me great support during my blogging life. Then I push them waaaaay out of their comfort zones. Authors has become interrogators and Bloggers get interrogated. Rest assured, no one gets hurt (much) and everyone has fun (eventually). You can find every related post on The Questioning page!

What’s to come? – July 2019

July is going to be... busy. And that's an understatement. With freelancing, SPFBO and ARC reviewing I'll have my hands pretty full. But hey, I got myself into this, so I can't really complain. I'm going to be very mysterious in this sneak peek, but believe me, you are going to love the things I'll bring to you this month and the wait (and torture) will be worth it! I just have to make sure my mental state is up to all these things...

Monthly Wrap Up: June 2019

June was a pretty great month all things considered. I was supposed to take this month easier and have a break, but ended up not doing that. Until I was forced to realised that I indeed needed a break and the last few days of the month was all about relaxing and doing anything other than reading. It was nice. It was my first month being only half employed at my workplace and OMG I LOVE working only 4 hours. The first two weeks made wonders to my mental health and I'm so happy I made this decision.

SPFBO 5 – Introducing Team RockStarlit BookAsylum!

We got our 30 books assigned. Yay! Now comes the hard work. I invited 3 awesome bloggers to join me on this journey. Partly because I knew I needed a few people to get the workload off of my shoulders and partly because I know that I have my own preferences and genres I don't like to read. I wanted to have a team to give equal chance to every book in our lot regardless of genre. We each have our preferences, but I think at the end of the day, we'll balance each other out and will pick one book that ticks the right boxes for all of us. I don't expect that it'll be easy, but hey, that's half of the fun!

The Written by Ben Galley

The Written was the 4th book I've read from Ben Galley and I managed to do that in about 7 months. I think it was only the first 5 Harry Potter books that I've read in less time. Interestingly, I've read Galley's latest trilogy, The Chasing Graves first, then continued with his debut. Normally people do it in reverse order. On the other hand, it gives me the opportunity to see how far he had come in the past 10 years or so. Of course I won't compare the two series as they are completely different and besides that wouldn't be fair. Despite the fact that lately I've been in a reading slump and started to get tired of epic fantasy, I really enjoyed The Written. It has some flaws, sure, but it also had some ideas I was really digging.

Ioth, City of Lights by D.P. Woolliscroft

If you liked Kingshold, then you probably don't need any more prompting to check out Ioth, City of Lights. While Kingshold was something fresh in Fantasy, Ioth, City of Lights is rather a classical epic fantasy with a solid world building, a large set of interesting characters, political intrigue and plenty of action. While it has its own story arc, it leaves plenty of room for the next adventure. I'm pretty sure Woolliscroft has quite a few things waiting for us in the future.

What’s to come? – June 2019

June won't be any less exciting than May was, as things still keep happening. I finally started my new journey in life and I couldn't be happier. SPFBO5 is about to kick off as well and I'll be going to concerts too.
