The Shelves Are Groaning - VII/04

This is my first SAG post since January, and while I haven’t been buying books nearly frequently as I used to, I do still have quite a few new titles for my shelves. Actually, the list is a lot longer than I realised …!

Worldshaker by Richard Harland – YA Speculative Fiction: Fantasy; […]

The Shelves Are Groaning - XI/01

I can’t believe it’s already the 11th of January. I can’t believe it’s already 2015! Crazy. I won’t be doing too many of these posts this year as we’ll be on a single income and things will be tight, but I’ve picked up some great books in the last month or so to share with […]

The Shelves Are Groaning - VII/07

The seventh day of the seventh month – it’s been a while since I posted a SAG post (not since May, in fact) but I haven’t been buying too many books lately. I just don’t have time to read much at the moment, but also I don’t have time (sniff sniff) to trawl my favourite […]

The Shelves Are Groaning - XXIX/05

Zac & Mia by AJ Betts – YA Fiction.

This is an Aussie novel due to be released in North America in September 2014. I heard about it through the Australian Women Writers Challenge and was intrigued. I’m just about to start reading The Fault in Our Stars, which I’m expecting to be […]
