SPFBO Edition: I. W. Ferguson

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...

SPFBO: The First Round of DNFs by Jen (Bunnyreads)

The pokey person in the group is finally getting around to her first round of mini-reviews for my DNF's! Please note, that this is only my opinion and my ratings, and these books still can end up as semi-finalists if one of my fellow judges deem them worthy. Once we have a couple of books all of us thinks won't make it, Timy will write up announcement posts.

What’s to come? – August 2019

August is here! I really can't believe how much of the year went away already. Did some pushed the fast forward button? It can't be August already! Feels like it was last week I decided to (throw money out of the window) go to the WorldCon and I'll be heading there in less than two weeks! I'm pretty sure it must be some kind of wizardry. 

Monthly Wrap Up: July 2019

July was a bit of a mixed month. I've started my freelancing for real - I had 3 assignments - , I tried to keep up with reviewing (I clearly failed at that), I squeezed in some SPFBO reading and overall managing some related stuff, I also had a bit of holiday, and all the while I somehow tried to find a balance between all of my work, responsibilities and relaxing and doing some crafting. In the end, what had to give was spending time on social media. Of course there were a few other reasons behind my absence than time issues (anxiety, and getting fed up are amongst these), but I'd rather not go into details. Anyway, I'm always available to chat and do look at my messages, but I don't keep track of people's posts/tweets as much and probably miss pretty much everything. If you need me, give a shout, I'm never too far away 🙂

SPFBO: The First Round of DNFs by Timy

July is about to end, and following in my fellow judges' footsteps, I'll give you my first update on the progress I made this month. Please note, that this is only my opinion and my ratings, and these books still can end up as semi-finalists if one of my fellow judges deem them worthy. Once we have a couple of books all of us thinks won't make it, I'll write up announcement posts.

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!

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. 

Monthly Wrap Up: May 2019

May was an interesting whirlwind of a month. We had my cousin's wedding, I made some life changing desicions, my blog got picked to be one of the judges for SPFBO5 and I  got my hands on a lot of awesome ARCs and books. And I finally got caught up with everything!
