“Shada (A story by Douglas Adams)” written by Gareth Roberts.

For a self-confessed Whovian, a lover of all things Doctor Who, I shamefully have to admit that I have seen a grand total of possibly eight episodes of the classic series (everything pre-dating the reboot in 2005). When I was living … Continue reading

“Lady Midnight” by Cassandra Clare

I finished Lady Midnight this morning and I’m not entirely sure how I felt about the experience. There’s this thing that seems to happen to YA authors where, when they get popular, editors just let them do whatever they want, at the … Continue reading

“Every Move” by Ellie Marney (Every #3)

I now understand why it took me so long to read Every Move. Because now that it’s over, there’s no more Watts and no more Mycroft. And that breaks my heart. If you haven’t read the other books in the Every series, I … Continue reading

“Touched by an Angel” by Jonathan Morris

One of my beautiful friends, who sadly lives in Melbourne and NOT in Brisbane, bought me this book when she went over to the US. This particular book was a Barnes and Noble exclusive and it is so pretty. Seriously, this … Continue reading

“Amazing Fantastic Incredible: A Marvelous Memoir” by Stan Lee and Peter David and Colleen Doran

“Engines of War” by George Mann

I have had both good and bad experiences with Doctor Who novels. For a show that can be so delightfully complex, the books written to be part of the same universe can be dreadfully plain. Borderline boring. Engines of War  was … Continue reading

“Good Omens” by Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman

My washing is STILL NOT DONE. I went downstairs, thinking it was finished and the damn thing was just chirping at me, as if to say “No no, I need you to stay here and shower me with attention rather … Continue reading

“Angels Twice Descending” by Cassandra Clare and Robin Wasserman

I feel like there is very little more frustrating than being stuck at home, needing to be somewhere, and yet you can’t leave until your washing is done. I’m heading to my mum’s place for the weekend and I should … Continue reading
