Acerca da Minha Biblioteca
My library is dominated by fantasy because I've been collecting it all my life, but my reading is evenly balanced between fantasy and modern scifi / speculative fiction.

My non-fiction shelves are biased towards history and archaeology books or science; and I have a few shelves of mainly historical and some crime fiction to dip into from time to time when I don't fancy a fantasy or scifi read.
Acerca de Mim

I am a bookworm; I am not fully dressed if I leave the house without a book - although these days it's just as likely to be a digital copy. I'm also a book blogger, so bear with me, I just need to add these 10 other titles to my wishlist because I got distracted from reading my book whilst pausing to jot down my reading notes. Dammit, interweb.


My genres of choice for reading and reviewing are science fiction and fantasy, although I try to read a few books outside these pastures each year. I'm a sucker for vibrant characters and witty dialogue, and pointed social commentary is always welcome.

Bring me your dragons and space pirates, murder librarians and aliens; make me muse on whether there's a line between artificial intelligence and sentience - it's all good, I'm here for it. I'm not here for romance as the main story, although I will cheerfully board a ship in a subplot (unless it becomes an excuse for heroes rescuing love interests).

I tend to avoid YA and urban fantasy (although titles that avoid love triangles and/or where romance isn't central do get a look-in) and horror (unless it's atmospheric over squick). I generally avoid grimdark too - these days the world is bleak enough without my reading turning the lights out - but I dip my toe in those waters from time to time. Bleak is fine. Misogyny under the cloak of 'realism' can get in the sea - I don't need realism in my fantasy, thanks.

I'm shamelessly biased to reading works by women, trans and non-binary folx; and to amplifying the voices of authors of colour and debut authors. It doesn't mean that I don't read big-name white male authors (I do, there are some great ones) - but enough people are already talking about them. I want to talk about the lesser-known names so we can all have MOAR favourites.
