Book Review: Grumpy Old Gods Volume 1

I was sent a copy of the Grumpy Old Gods: Volume 1 anthology of short stories by one of the authors and I was really excited to read it. I’ve always loved mythology, reading about the different pantheons and the mischief  the gods and heroes get up to. My interest in mythology has crossed over into my reading habits and I love to read other writers interpretations of myths and the pantheons. Some of my favourite books are Rick Riordan’s Percy Jackson and the Olympians series and Kevin Hearne’s Iron Druid series. So the idea of a selection of stories based on what happens afterRead More →

5 Fandom Friday - My TBR pile

My TBR pile is massive and has multiple parts. If you head over to my goodreads profile you can see my many bookshelves. I even have my TBR pile divided by whether they’re available at my two local libraries. So, yeah, this prompt was a pest! Narrowing it down to just 5 books was difficult, so I decided to add a sub-category to the prompt. First I considered new releases, new authors, indie books and comics (my local library just got an awesome subscription to Comics Plus so yey access to free digital comics!). In the end, I settled for this; 5 books in ongoingRead More →

Sharing Saturday: website cliques

Fandom Friday is on a break for May so no Fandom 5 this week, however, I will be choosing some old topics to complete for the next couple of Fridays.

In this case, website cliques come in all different colours and flavours. You would apply toRead More →
