Review: The Galaxy and the Ground Within by Becky Chambers

And here we have reached, the end. The end of the story of those across the Wayfarer books. If you’re one of the (smarter) people who doesn’t follow me on social media, you might not know that the only reading goal I had so far this year was to reread and finish this series in…

The Wayfarers by Becky Chambers; The Story So Far (3 Mini Reviews)

So it’s 2022, let’s try something new. I have kicked off the year by rereading and finishing (hopefully) the four books in Becky Chambers’s Wayfarers series. I am currently reading the final book in the series, The Galaxy and the Ground Within, and that will be getting it’s own review since I was approved for…

Review: Priest of Bones by Peter Mclean

***Content warnings for war, death, gore, murder, rape (off and on page), PTSD, child abuse, homophobia, genital mutilation, sexual abuse, substance and alcohol abuse, plague, death of a parent and torture*** Something that’s becoming more and more obivous about my taste is that I will always root for a morally grey, messy character. I don’t…

December 2021 Wrap Up

In true Hedwig fashion, a delayed December wrap up to begin 2022! So December was a warped reading month. Mostly beween work, the usual seasonal prep and uncertainty of a certain Ms. Rona. But also because I wanted to finish on my goal of 100 books this year! Sudden hospital tests last year prevented it…

A Challenge for 2022: 12 Books from 12 People

Now hear me out, I know I said death to the TBR a year ago. There is however, in my melted brain anyway, a difference between a TBR and recommendations. Very little for sure but there is something easier in it for me to just pick up a book (sooner than later sometimes) someone recommended…

2020 Reading Review; Favourites, stats and plans

Well, we made it. 2022 is upon us and I and my bedraggled carcass are thrilled for it. Also a bit apprehensive but isn’t everyone right now? So 2021 was, to put it frankly, A YEAR. I have very mixed feelings for it and a lot of fatigue. I don’t think I’ve ever spent so…

Review: Hogfather by Terry Pratchett

Now this is good timing, the final Discworld post on actual Hogswatch eve! Welcome back to the Disc everyone, two reviews in one month for the first time in a while. In my last review of Soul Music, I mentioned that for the first time I had timed my Discworld reading both continuity and season…

Review: Soul Music by Terry Pratchett

Welcome back to the Discworld Project! So fun fact about me today, I have a long, emotional connection to various genres of rock music. I went through a very distinct punk/emo/goth part of my teenage years obsessing over Kerrang!, music videos and getting band merch as gifts. I at one point wanted to study music…
