- Not Just Jane: Seven Amazing Women Writers Who Transformed British Literature – Shelley DeWees. While I’m really interested in reading this, I’m a bit peeved that all seven are English in a book that talks about ‘British’ literature. There were no women of note from Scotland, Wales or Ireland writing in the 18th and 19th centuries. Apparently.
- The Avalon Chronicles, Volume 1: Once in a Blue Moon – Nunzio DeFilippis, Christina Weir & Emma Vieceli. Being a massive fan of DeFilippis and Weir’s run on New X-Men: Academy X, I could resist picking up volume two of The Avalon Chronicles when I saw it on sale recently (for £1!!). I’m thinking it might be nice to read the first volume too, though 😉
- Snowed – Maria Alexander. Look at that cover.
- Flame in the Mist – Renee Ahdieh. A Mulan retelling!
- Necrotech – K.C. Alexander. I’ve not really read a lot of cyberpunk sci-fi, but this looks like the perfect book to change that with.
- To Say Nothing of the Dog – Connie Willis. A ‘delightful romantic comedy’ that’s a homage to Three Men in a Boat and it’s sci-fi.
- Waking Gods – Sylvain Neuvel. Really looking forward to this one after the cliffhanger at the end of the first book.
- Wires and Nerve – Marissa Meyer & Douglas Holgate. Iko from The Lunar Chronicles in her own graphic novel spin-off. Sounds like fun to me!
- The Refrigerator Monologues – Catherynne M. Valente & Annie Wu. This sounds absolutely amazing. Why is fridging still a thing? Get some better ideas, comic book writers!
- Shadowed Souls – Jim Butcher & Kerrie L. Hughes (eds). It feels like forever since we’ve had a new Dresden Files book, so hopefully the Molly Carpenter short story in this will keep me going for a bit longer.
- Certain Dark Things – Silvia Moreno-Garcia. Mixing vampire lore with the Aztecs is a spin on the genre I’ve not come across before, and one with excellent potential.
- Pitch Dark – Courtney Alameda. It’s like someone read my Isolated in Space post and wrote a book with all my favourite things <3
Articles of Note
- Ireland Clinch First Ever Win Over All Blacks to End New Zealand’s Record Streak. Good things come to those who wait! 😀
- 20 No-Nonsense Reactions to Last Night’s Asking For It Documentary. Excellent that this documentary got made and that so many people reactions so positively to it. What’s less excellent is the next article.
- Louise O’Neill Was Criticised For Wearing a ‘Revealing’ Outfit in a Review of Asking For It. Way to miss/reinforce the point, Irish Independent (one of Ireland’s biggest newspapers, btw).
- Rick and Morty Parodies Ex Machina, The Thing and More in Claymation Shorts. Do you watch Rick and Morty? You should!
- An Official Gaeilge Translation For ‘Little Person’ Has Been Added Thanks to Campaigner Sinead Burke. I’m embarrassed to admit that I’d never even considered the lack of terms like this from the Irish language.
- I’ve Heard Enough of the White Male Rage Narrative. Yep.
- The Magicians Season 2 Trailer Shows That Even After Last Season, Things Can Always Get Worse. With the TV show coming back, I think it’s time to read the final book in the trilogy.
- Jessica Chastain to Star in Painkiller Jane Comic Book Adaptation. Yaaaaaasssss!!!!!
- Homemade Pear Cider. In my part of the world, cider contains alcohol, but that’s easily remedied in this lush sounding recipe.
- Clementine Whiskey Smash. This has the potential to covert me to whiskey.
- Food In Books: Whipple-Scrumptious Fudgemallow Delight from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. Perfection.
- Whipped Bourbon Bacon Sweet Potatoes. I can hardly even imagine such a thing!
