Through Splintered Walls: Review Roundup

Through Splintered Walls - coverSo the reason that this review round up took so long to get up is entirely on me, because I found it hard to read a book of horror stories in the midst of my semester, with the weight of all my assessment and future bearing down upon me.

And wow was this book awesomely scary! If you’ve reviewed Showtime, as a whole or in part, please let us know so we can link to your review!

So now, without further delay, here is the review round up for Kaaron Warren’s Through Splintered Walls

Stories from Through Splintered Walls include: 

  • Introduction by Gemma Files
  • Mountain
  • Creek
  • Road
  • Sky

Another hiatus update!

Well, it turns out that the second half of this year really got away from both Steph and I. My university semester was so full on that I really didn’t have the fortitude to take on horror reading at all, so it took me until very recently to finish reading and then review ‘Through Splintered Walls’ by Kaaron Warren. In any case, we’re about to start posting our reviews again, hopefully monthly but we’ll be taking it gently.

Now would be a great time to start linking us to any reviews of ‘Through Splintered Walls’ you’d like us to include in our round up – doesn’t matter if you read it a month a go or two years ago. Also, even if you only reviewed one or a couple of the stories, we’re still interested. Link us! The more the merrier 🙂

Also if you have since reviewed any of the previous books we’ve already covered in the Twelve Planets series, please feel free to continue linking us to those reviews too!

Thanks for hanging in there with us during our long hiatus, hopefully you’ll enjoy our upcoming reviews. Stay tuned and in a week or so I’ll post the round up 🙂

Update on us…

Greetings everyone!

You may have wondered why things have been so quiet here of late. Truth is both Steph and I have had an intense couple of months and so our plans for July and August months have been delayed.

We’re going to take the rest of August at this stage and then continue on with the project for September with our next planet ‘Through Splintered Walls’ by Kaaron Warren.  We’d love it if you’d join in with us then 🙂

Thank you for all your support so far! Happy reading 🙂

Approaching the end of June!

A reminder that the end of June is approaching, and so is our wrap-up post of our Planet of the month, Through Splintered Walls by Kaaron Warren.

A thank you also to everyone who’s been reading along with us, and who have been reading the reviews.

Showtime: Review Roundup

Showtime - coverSo Steph and I are 5 months into this challenge and we’re both enjoying it immensely! This month’s Planet was Showtime by Narrelle M. Harris.

Undertaking this challenge has allowed us to both catch up on reading that we’ve been meaning to get to, and for me at least, the chance to read Australian female authors and genres new to me.

This challenge also segues nicely into the Australian Women Writers Challenge if you’re looking for reading options to round out your challenge list.

If you’ve reviewed Showtime, as a whole or in part, please let us know so we can link to your review!

Stories from Showtime include:

  • Introduction by Seanan McGuire
  • Stalemate
  • Thrall
  • The Truth About Brains
  • Showtime

Almost the end of May!

It’s almost the end of May, which means that the time to post reviews of Narrelle M. Harris’s Showtime is approaching.
