New on my Shelves (5)

I attended London MCM Comic-Con at the Excel last weekend and walked away with a few new books all signed by fantastic authors.
I love that they're doing author corners now. Who knows, perhaps one day, we'll get to lure George Martin to London.
  • Adrian Tchaikovsky's Children of Ruin, of course. He doodled an octopus for us. Here's my review.
  • Claire North's The Gameshouse, without even reading the blurb or the back. She's on my will buy anything from her list.
  • RJ Barker's Age of Assassins. My review can be found here. RJ is a wonderful human being.
  • And Jen William's The Ninth Rain; it came with a dragon doodle, and I can't wait to dive into it.

And finally, have I ever shown you the gift I received from my other half? My favourite books, plus a Doctor Who quote:
What is new on your shelves? Let me know in the comments.


  1. Book events are so much fun. Sometimes I get a little overwhelmed by the crowds but it’s still fun to meet the authors face to face and get books personalized. I love the dragon doodle. :) And the gift from your partner... wow!!! I love that! It’s so personal and thoughtful. She scored big with that one. :)

  2. Below are some notable arguments attributable to 카지노사이트 the house owners of the machines saying that the displayed amounts were far larger than those patrons ought to get. In 2006, the Nevada Gaming Commission started working with Las Vegas casinos on know-how that would enable the on line casino's management to alter the game, the percentages, and the payouts remotely. The change cannot be carried out instantaneously, however only after the selected machine has been idle for a minimum of|no less than} four minutes. After the change is made, the machine should be locked to new gamers for four minutes and display an on-screen message informing potential gamers that a change is being made.
