Book Review: Embers of War by Gareth L. Powell

Embers of War first came onto my radar when it won the British Science Fiction Award for best novel in 2018. Curious and craving some good sci-fi, I decided to pick it up and see what all the fuss was about. To my surprise and delight, it features one of my absolute favourite tropes in science fiction -- sentient spaceships! I ended up really enjoying this fun sci-fi romp -- in many ways it captured the fun and essence of the Star Wars films and translated it onto paper.

April 2018 Reading Round-Up

I feel like I say this every month, but I cannot believe how quickly time is passing!  April has absolutely flown by and spring is well underway. April has been an amazing month for me: I went to the Harry Potter studio for the first time, chaired my first book event, hosted my first readathon, and I read some fanastic books.  I feel like the start of the year was a bit slow to start in my little corner of the internet, but I'm really getting back on my feet in terms of writing reviews, posting videos, and taking photos.
