October Updates

Posted 31 October, 2015 by Lianne in Website / 2 Comments

Hurray, autumn has come! *pulls out her sweaters, scarves, and hot drinks* Well, October has been an interesting month both online and off, and once again it was a packed month scheduling-wise here on the blog:


  1. Books reviewed this month include: Lindsey Kelk’s Always the Bridesmaid (review), Susanna Kearsley’s The Winter Sea (review), and Viola di Grado’s Hollow Heart (review). You can check out all the books I’ve reviewed recently in the book review tag.
  2. Two ARCs were reviewed this month: Elizabeth Bear & Sara Monette’s An Apprentice to Elves (review) and Max Wirestone’s The Unfortunate Decisions of Dahlia Moss (review). You can check out all of the ARCs that I recently read in this tag.
  3. One comic was reviewed this month, the final volume of Hawkeye: Rio Bravo (review). You can check out all of my reviews of comics read in its category.
  4. For this month’s So You Want to Read…, I decided to feature Edith Wharton. You can read the post of my recommendations of which of her books to start with over here. For all my previous recommendations under this feature, check out this tag.
  5. I would’ve made a separate post for it but I won’t have time to do so later (Rugby World Cup final + errands to run πŸ˜› ) but I contributed to the Hallowe’en 2015 issue of Femnista. The issue focuses on the subject of villainesses and my article focuses on Lady Macbeth πŸ™‚ You can read and download this issue (when it goes live) at Charity’s Place. Enjoy!
  6. Finally, I celebrated my birthday earlier this month with a wee book giveaway! Contest closes tonight at 11:59PM EST so there’s still a bit of time to enter if you haven’t done so yet! Winner will be drawn and contacted sometime tomorrow. Good luck πŸ™‚


And that’s about it from me for the month of October! Stay tuned to this blog next month as Rinn Reads’ annual Sci-Fi Month will be taking place (and I will be participating once again this year πŸ˜€ ). Hope everyone have a wonderful Hallowe’en weekend and to those participating in NaNoWriMo this November, happy writing! πŸ™‚
