Hollow World by Michael J. Sullivan



Read from April 06 to 12, 2014 — I own a copy

Synopsis: The future is coming…for some, sooner than others.

Ellis Rogers is an ordinary man who is about to embark on an extraordinary journey. All his life he has played it safe and done the right thing, but when faced with a terminal illness, he’s willing to take an insane gamble. He’s built a time machine in his garage, and if it works, he’ll face a world that challenges his understanding of what it means to be human, what it takes to love, and the cost of paradise. He could find more than a cure for his illness; he might find what everyone has been searching for since time began…but only if he can survive Hollow World.

Welcome to the future and a new sci-fantasy thriller from the bestselling author of The Riyria Revelations. Continue reading

My most read authors vol. 2.0

This is what my 'Read' pile is starting to look like.

This is what my ‘Read’ pile is starting to look like.

Last year, in January, I posted three posts about my most read authors.

#26-13 came first, closely followed by #10-2 and finally the cherry on top #1.

I just happened to be browsing through my books on Goodreads and thought I’d check out the most read authors again, a year later, to see how we’re going. I was interested to see if anyone has managed to de-throne Rebecca Royce or if there are some authors jostling their way up the ladder towards #1.

No, I haven’t been on a killing spree (although my trainer asked me this morning if I’d been to Melbourne recently as he nodded to the news coverage of the recent double murder down that way) I don’t think I look like a killer!

I am of course!

But only when referring to that time when a writer must kill off a character in their work.

Books that made me cry…

The ‘Made me cry’ shelf

This book shelf is really only reserved for those books that really REALLY are special. The characters have to connect with me on one or more levels and I have to truly care for them. There are a lot of books out there that I’ve loved, that have even gotten 5 stars, but aren’t on this list. Similarly, some of the books in this shelf haven’t gotten 5 stars, but I loved the characters. If you’re keen to see the whole list (currently 14) you can view it from my profile page on Goodreads.

Legendary Leading Ladies Ledge

Book Shelf

Before I get into snooping about on my Legendary Leading Ladies Ledge (loving that alliteration) or shelf, I just wanted to share with you all the awesomeness that is the book shelf above. The ‘target books’ shelf by Turkish designer Mebrure Oral, is designed to keep books organized by separating them into sections of ‘already read’ and ‘yet to read’. You can purchase one of these for $520 from Mebrure’s website.
