My final tally of top m/m reads for the year, including some queer SF and paranormal romance.
Three of my favourite individual books from last year were "spooky house" stories. Two were straight up ghost stories, while the third was a different kind of paranormal.
Reflections on three standout authors whose work I read in 2017 - TJ Klune, KJ Charles and Santino Hassell.
So the final reading tally for the year is 242 novels and novellas, of which 204 were new (clearly I got some reading done in the last week or so, some of them 'holiday stories'). I was going to write a single post about my favourites from the year, but I had too much to … Continue reading Reading highlights from 2016 – part 3

Bookbub is a … Continue reading Reading highlights from 2016 – part 1
Seven Summer Nights is another wonderful novel from Harper Fox — a complex weave of archeological and mythological mystery, the after-effects of war and post-traumatic stress, and a passionate love story. This book filled me with wonder and fear and horror and joy as we follow the story of Rufus Denby, a celebrated archaeologist and … Continue reading Seven Summer Nights – Book Review
Yet again, I read a fair few books in December. In fact, I've become somewhat addicted to nose-in-kindle and am at the point where I get a little agitated if I try to take a break. Seriously. I wasn't joking in my last post when I said I'd spent every day since Christmas on the … Continue reading What I read in December
After discovering author Harper Fox in March, I spent April working my way through a chunk of her backlist. Seriously, I haven't been able to get enough of her books. It's been a revelation, because the male/male romance genre is not one I usually read in, or indeed expected to like. Were it not for … Continue reading April reading: The Salisbury Key and more Harper Fox
It’s been good to finally get my teeth into some contemporary epic fantasy in the form of Australian author Jo Spurrier's Winter be my shield (Children of the Black Sun - Book 1). From the very start this novel gripped me in its icy vices and – even if perhaps it faded a little in the … Continue reading Book Review: Winter be my shield
