The Newbie’s Guide to Fantasy – If you’re a regular reader of this blog, then you’re probably already well-versed in Fantasy. However, if you stumbled across this out of curiosity, this post is for you.
Fantasy Faction – Can’t get enough of all things Fantasy? Head over to Fantasy Faction.
7 Standalone Novels for Fantasy Lovers – It seems like just about every Fantasy book I read is a part of a series, but sometimes I only want one story told in one book. No cliff hangers, no first book that is a setup of the world and characters so you can get to the story in the next book, no long-term commitment. I stand by the recommendations for Uprooted by Naomi Novik and The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern.
Locus Online – This is the website for Locus magazine, and while it covers both Science Fiction and Fantasy, it’s a great site to check out for news and new releases.
“Thursday’s Things” is a collection of interesting stuff I’ve found during my meanderings on the net. Sometimes it’s monthly, other times it’s whenever I happen to find at least 10 topically related links I think are worth reading, but it’s always on a Thursday.
March is Women’s History Month, and yesterday was International Women’s Day. That makes today the perfect Thursday to give you tons of stuff about Women, Women’s History, Feminism, etc. Most of these links are reading suggestions, but when do we not need more books to add to our TBR piles?
I named this month’s Thursday’s Things after Ray Bradbury’s short story collection “The October Country” because it sums up all the weird and spooky bookish links I discovered during my wanderings around the internet.
The Star Trek Lit-verse Reading Guide – Have you ever wanted to read one of the many Star Trek books out there, but have no idea where to start? Check out this website for all your Star Trek reading questions.
Elijah Wood Joins the DIRK GENTLY TV Series – My BFF got me the Dirk Gently books for my Birthday a couple years ago. Now that I know it’s being adapted by the BBC, I’ll be adding it to my TBR for the Sci-Fi Summer reading challenge.
Bookish Boozing: 12 Beers With Literary Names – While these beers aren’t Irish, why settle for the beers that everyone else is drinking on St. Patty’s Day? If you’re going to drink while reading, you might as well pop the top off a bookish beer.
TBR Calculator – Do you want to know how much longer you’ll need to regularly dust all those unread books on your shelves? Tally up the number of books you own, enter in how many you read last year, and this handy calculator will make you consider culling those shelves once again.
How To Weed Your Bookshelves – If the amount of time for you to get through your TBR mountain is too long to handle without hyperventilating, use this to get rid of the books you know you’ll never read.
