Aim: Avid Reader (2 books per month)- changed from the original aim of casual reader (1 book per month)
Progress: I finished two books, but at the moment I've only got the one review up on the blog. The next should be up in a day or so.
Kingdom Come by JG Ballard - An interesting novel set on the precipice of our world an a dystopian world.
Read my review here.
Under Stones by Bob Franklin - A series of short stories that look at the more depressing, mundane and naturally horrific side of life.
Review to come.
Next to read: TBA
Progress: 54 read so far. According to GoodReads I'm currently five books ahead.
A Feast for Crows by George R.R. Martin - A good read but a definite decrease in quality from the previous books.
Read review here.(Warning! Spoilers!)
A Dance with Dragons by George R.R Martin - The latest installment. Not bad, but not great.
Read review here. (Warning! Spoilers!)
Freakangels by Warren Ellis - The series is finally complete. A little sad to see the end of it to be honest! I didn't review this specific book but you can read my review of the series here.
*I completed my readathon to raise money for MS Australia. Unfortunately I didn't have enough time to dedicate to a really serious 'sit down and read' session so I only read 8 books but I did manage to raise $890 so I'm feeling pretty happy!
*I've put my Fanart Friday posts on hold for the time being. Once my thesis has been sent off to the examiners I'll have a lot more time to dedicate to rummaging through the hundreds and thousands of works of art on Deviant Art. Any requests for my first week back (28/10/11)?
