I thought it was about time I hopped on this bandwagon!
This meme is looked after by The Book Date.
I know it’s only the 6th, but my reading year has been a bit meh thus far. I tend to read a few books at a time, and the ones I picked up were a bit heavy, and I needed something a bit more fun. I had had a conversation with a dear friend of mine about this series earlier in the day, so when Imogen picked up the first book and suggested I read that I took it as a sign.
I know I’m late to this party (I always am) but I have picked up Leviathan Wakes by James S.A. Corey, and it was all I could do last night not to read way past my bedtime. It will also count towards at least on of the prompts for the Swords and Stars challenge. I need to remember that when I’m having a rough time I just damn well need to pick up some sci-fi.
On a personal note, you will no doubt have seen the bush fire emergency Australia is currently experiencing. Lucky for me I am a long way from any of the terrible things that are happening elsewhere in the country. It is devastating to watch the country burn and to see people and animals suffer. While donations of cash are always good, I have been feeling a bit helpless and wanting to do more. Fortunately a couple of my work pals have led me to a group collecting knitted and sewn items to help injured native animals. So I’m going to be knitting up some marsupial pouches and sending them on. I’ve been watching a heap of Aussie authors participating in #AuthorsforFireys over on Twitter which has made my heart swell. It seems that everyone who can is doing something.
