Every year I look forward to the Goodreads Choice Awards and this year was no different. Even long before I started book blogging, the GR Choice Awards provided the perfect opportunity to show my love for my favourite books and (of course) increase my TBR by adding some of the biggest book names of the year.

Hey, chilly panda pops!
I simply cannot believe that this is the last TBR of 2018. Every year I have remarked on how quickly the months are passing and now the year is almost over in the blink of an eye. I have read so many amazing books this year and also many books I had planned to read fell by the wayside so this month will be dedicated to catching up on those books!

It’s not the End of the Year (yet) nor is it Thursday, but I’m going to do the End of the Year book tag anyway because Destiny is a bad influence on me and I’ve missed blogging so much these past few weeks!
Are there any books you started this year that you need to finish?
Usually, I’m quite good at abandoning books halfway through but that has not been the case with my ARC of Defy the Worlds. 2 months later I’ve not picked it back up after putting it down but I really need to finish it before the end of the year!

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