November TBR | #Mythothon & Remember November

November TBR | #Mythothon & Remember November

Hey friends!

I haven’t done a bingo event for what seems like forever so I couldn’t resist the lure of Foxes and Fairytale’s #mythothon for November, especially given my love for Greek mythology! As the end of the year is hurtling towards us at rapid speed the #mythothon bingo card also gives me the perfect opportunity to work out which books have been sadly sidelined this year and try to finish them before the end of the year. Which leads me onto the other thing happening this month, Remember November, a challenge to help you meet those pesky 2018 goals we set at the beginning of the year! Reading more owned books was one of my main goals for the year, so the mythothon and Remember November tie in perfectly for me.

‘THERE’S NOTHING NEW UNDER THE SUN, BUT THERE ARE NEW SUNS’
Octavia E. Butler

New Suns Cover

I am absolutely thrilled to take part in the cover reveal for an incredible new anthology, New Suns: Original Speculative Fiction by People of Color. Edited by the brilliant Nisi Shawl, author of Everfair, New Suns showcases both emerging and seasoned writers telling stories that are filled with shocking delights and powerful visions of the familiar made strange.

There is an array of stories on show in this anthology which journey across science fiction, fantasy, horror, and all of the less traveled places in between, places which free authors of stereotypes and clichéd expectations so that they can deliver dazzling new tales which will shine through as new suns on our literary horizons.

Some of the outstanding stories which you can look forward to include Blood and Bells by Karin Lowachee, The Fine Print by Chinelo Onwualu, The Shadow We Cast Through Time by Indrapramit Das, and Harvest by Rebecca Roanhorse. The anthology is introduced by the prolific actor and director LeVar Burton who played Lt. Commander Geordi La Forge in Star Trek: The Next Generation and Nisi Shawl brings the collection to a close with her afterword.

I am absolutely over the moon about the announcement of such a fantastic anthology and am completely in love with the beautiful cover, designed by Yoshi Yoshitani. Over the past few months I’ve been fortunate enough to read some incredible anthologies, such as The Djinn Falls in Love & Other Stories edited by Mahvesh Murad and Jared Shurin, and am very excited about delving into the radiant stories in New Suns.

Hey Pandas!

I know that I say this at the end of every single month but holy hell this month went so fast and it’s almost the end of the year?! How though?! I don’t understand where the entire year has gone, it’s gone too fast for its own good. October was a pretty good month though so here’s a quick rundown of everything I got up to!

Hey friends, welcome to The Sunday Post – a weekly meme hosted by Caffeinated Book Reviewer to share all the weekly news and feels!

The cold and wet weather is upon us as Autumn drifts away and Winter encroaches. It has been super cold this week and whilst lots of my friends have been out enjoying the wintery conventions, I’ve been home most of the week with a horrible cold! But that’s meant there’s been lots of time for reading, playing games and watching tv!
