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 →

Halloween Fashion on the UK High Street!

It’s been a little while since the last Geek on the High Street due to holidays and getting back on track, and this month I’m doing something a little bit different! While most months I’ll be sticking to a particular fandom/franchise I am going to be doing some themes as well because I’m going to run out of fandoms and also because being a geek is more than just being a fangirl. I think this quote from Simon Pegg sums it up quite nicely:   “Being a geek is all about being honest about what you enjoy and not being afraid to demonstrate that affection.Read More →
