A double Book Club catch up after missing last month due to crazy busy life getting in the way of our nerd-gathering!
Good grief, how is it April already?! Last month involved loads of books but not necessarily the ones I originally said I was going to read! I had a bit of a comic/graphic novel binge mid-month which set back my planned reading but was very enjoyable. Then I misplaced the book I actually wanted to… Continue reading My April TBR

The book we read… Continue reading Book Club Reads #1 – The Book Thief
The November book for the House of Blog Bookclub is The Teleportation Accident by Ned Beauman. Longlisted for the 2012 Man Booker Prize and named book of the year by several publications, this is not the type of book I would usually dream of picking up. The blurb gave me mixed feelings – partly it… Continue reading The Teleportation Accident – First Impressions ~ #HoBBookClub, Nov. 2013
