Weekly Wrap-Up: 16 March 2018

Happy Friday!  My weekly wrap-ups went missing from the blog for the entire month of February. I was so busy with life stuff that I just didn’t get around to them. Also, there was a complete lack of internet in the new flat until this week. So here is the triumphant return of my weekly wrap-up posts! It’s a long one -- buckle up!

Weekly Wrap-Up: 22 September

Happy Friday, you guys!  It feels like a proper autumn day here in the UK.  The sun is shining but it’s absolutely freezing! This has been a great week for books and reading, but not great for my bookshelves (they’re beginning to sag under the weight).  This will probably be quite a long post, so buckle up!

Review: Norse Mythology

I absolutely adore Neil Gaiman and snapped up a copy of this book in hardback within a month of publication. I'm a huge fan of mythology, but know so little about Norse mythology. This is a great introduction to the world of Thor, Loki, Odin, and the whole host of gods and goddesses that inhabit Asgard that have becoming more and more mainstream.

Recommended Reads: Chinese Sci-Fi

So I recently completed my dissertation on Chinese science fiction and whether or not English-language publishers were missing out on a gap in the market (spoiler alert: results are inconclusive). I've had a fair few people ask me for recommendations from my reading list, so I thought I'd post about it here.
