I won’t lie, February has been rough. Between work and personal affairs, I’ve had precious little time for blogging. I’ve managed to stick to my self-imposed bare minimum of one post a week, but I am accruing a vicious backlog of unwritten reviews. Anyway, let’s have a look at what I did achieve.

Reading Stats

  • Books Read: 9
  • Pages Read: 2519
  • Pages per Day: 117.46
  • Average Star Rating: 3.22/5
  • Book of the Month: Earth Unaware, by Orson Scott Card & Aaron Johnston

I fell a book short of my planned TBR this month, but I did get closer in terms of page count to where I wanted to be. Plus, I’m enjoying this month’s books a whole lot more than January’s offerings.

Book Haul

In an act of pure madness, I have only acquired one book during this month. What’s more, thanks to a Waterstones’ gift card left from Christmas, I haven’t actually spent any money on books this month. I can’t remember the last time I was able to say that. Anyway, the one book I did get is one I’ve been eager for, so maybe I’ll get around to it next month

  • Children of Memory, by Adrian Tchaikovsky




Phase Two is now underway as the team and I plug away at the next six semifinalists. I’ve just finished the first (and longest of these six), but while you’ll need to wait for the review, here is a rough guide to how the semifinals work.


There’s not a whole lot to report here. Real life has kept me busy enough that my work on various blogging projects has stalled, but at least this shows I have my priorities straight.

March will hopefully be a little busier on the science fiction front. I’m headed to my first convention of the year (Sci Fi Weekender XIV, for those who want to be in the know). There could well be a lull in posting around the middle of the month as a result, but I’m hopeful that filling in my backlog will keep things ticking over nicely.

Until next time folks.

    Glad you have your priorities straight!
