This week’s STS post is pretty underwhelming, but I was surprised with some books this week which is good! I’ve been staying away from the book stores and making more of a commitment to read what’s on my shelf than venturing into uncharted waters, so here we are.
Review copies – physical
Thank you to Penguin Australia, Pan Macmillan and Five Mile Press for sending me these review books!
VA Movie Companion – I was super excited to get the VA Movie Companion in the mail, I am dying for the movie to come out and hoping it’d be a good one. Flicking through the movie guide, it looks like lots of thought went into putting it together instead of just a lot of pretty pictures. Will report back when I read it!
Ophelia and the Marvellous Boy – I am taking part in the blog tour for this charming middle grade book, it was a quick read that reminded me of Coraline and Narnia. My post will be going up next Sunday with an Aussie only giveaway!
The Cracks in the Kingdom – I haven’t heard of this series before but reading the synopsis I love the blend between modern day life and fantasy. This is the 2nd in the series so I’ll have to track down the first before I read it, but it sounds really interesting!
Review copies – digital / Purchased
Sweet Reckoning – I really enjoyed Sweet Evil by Wendy Higgins as a twist on the angels/demons genre and jumped at the chance at downloading the final in the series on Edelweiss. I haven’t read Sweet Peril yet though, but plan to sometime.
Backward compatible – I’m a geek and I love things filled with pop culture references and after reading some early reviews on this, it sounds awesome! I bought the eBook for 99c on Amazon.
I reviewed the Wolf Among Us game – For those of you who don’t know, I’m a massive gamer and Telltale Games are one of my favourite developers. I rated Wolf Among Us, based on the Fables comic 9/10 so it’s worth checking out if you love character driven stories. Check out my review on MMGN here.

David writes a wonderful personalised message in each one and a video of him signing your book. To purchase, email firstname.lastname@example.org for your copies.
