What have I read?
- Rare Unsigned Copy by Simon Petrie — finally finished it! Some really great stories in here.
- Carrier by Vanessa Garden — my favourite read so far this year. Excellent post-apocalyptic Australian desert YA tale.
- Supurbia Volume 1 by Grace Randolph — A great comic series. Highly recommended. Stay tuned for my review of the final instalment (so far) in a couple of days.
- The Almost Girl by Amalie Howard — A little disappointing after my anticipation of this title.
- Supurbia Vol 2 by Grace Randolph — the story continues...
- Under Nameless Stars by Christian Schoon — Sequel to Zenn Scarlett. More enjoyable than the first book, I thought. A fun space adventure.
- Supurbia Vol 3 by Grace Randolph — ...and continues...
- Bespelled by Dani Kristoff — a really good paranormal romance novella. Highly recommended to any pararom fans or anyone who might want to give the genre a go.
- Metastasis edited by Rhonda Parrish — a cancer fundraising anthology about... well, cancer, mostly. A bit heavy but not as depressing as I expected it to be.
What am I currently reading?
I just finished reading Black Dog by Rachel Neumeier — review coming in a few days —and I've just started Peacemaker by Marianne de Pierres. I haven't read very much, but I'm already enjoying it a lot.
A mix of review copies and purchases this time. Assume review copy unless I mention buying it.
- Carrier by Vanessa Garden — already reviewed
- Peacemaker by Marianne de Pierres — looking forward to reading this Aussie SF. I'll also be running an interview with Marianne in April
- Rupetta by NA Sulway — purchased because it won the Tiptree and was shortlisted for an Aurealis and also sounds awesome and I wouldn't've heard of it if not for the first two points.
- All of Supurbia, purchased. See review links above. I'm not going to include cover art of all the issues below because there are just too many.
- Bespelled by Dani Kristoff — already reviewed
- The Wizard's Promise by Cassandra Rose Clarke — set in the same world as The Assassin's Curse and The Pirate's Wish, but I think it's about the daughter of the main characters in the earlier books.
- Feather Bound by Sarah Raughley — new YA from Strange Chemistry because apparently I'm reading pretty much everything they put out.
- Adaptation by Malinda Lo — I've wanted to read this for ages, but have resisted buying the US edition of the paper book. Now it's finally going to come out in the Commonwealth (well, UK/ANZ at least)! Really looking forward to getting to this.
- The Unintentional Time Traveller by Everett Maroon — I saw an interview with the author and was immediately intrigued by the premise: boy with epilepsy time travels into past girl's body. And then it was only $3 as an ebook so how could I resist? (oh my goodness I thought I couldn't spell because when I was searching this on iBooks it didn't come up but turns out Yanks don't spell traveller correctly)
- Allegiant by Veronica Roth — third in the Divergent trilogy. I won this book from Dark Matter Zine a little while ago (yay!) and it just reached me with some other things from Australia (in my defence, I was in Australia when I entered). Anyway, I've been spoiled for part of the ending for this, and that was one of the things that made me want to bother reading it after the disappointment of book 2.
