Updates

Hello readers. No news updates today unfortunately. I’m still busy with the move, which is going very well and hopefully by next week we’ll be living in the new place! In the meantime, new posts might be a little infrequent, so to tide you over here’s a little update on the books that are in my review pile, interviews I hope to conduct and a couple of giveaways. As far as the pic above, those are mainly the books that I’ve recently purchased, some personal favorites and copies that I’ve received from publishers/authors since starting Fantasy Book Critic. The rest of my collection is in storage or at my parent’s house :D. Anyways, should be some good stuff coming up in the months ahead and I look forward to spreading the joy! Thanks for reading and much love & respect…

Moving house can be, in the words of the old Irish poet, a right pain in the arse! I feel for you.

You've got a very good list of upcoming things :) My list is looking good on the review front but no where near you on the interview front. Looking forward to it all.

Chris:

Well, I love doing interviews, but they can be pretty time-consuming so I don't do as nearly as many as I would like to :)

I'm looking forward to your Trudi Caravan review btw. I've never read anything by her, but I've heard lots of good things and have been meaning to pick up some of her books. I hope it's good!

it's nice to know I'm not the only person who has stacks of books like that! :)

Kailana said...

I have stacks of books like that and I am still always looking closely at others for books.

Robert said...

Well, the pile continues to grow as I patiently await the book shelves that I ordered almost two months back!?!? Hopefully I'll get them soon...
