I gave them all careful consideration, but ended up picking Neverland. Here's why: http://bit.ly/2u6KhXW

However, if I could go anywhere, I'd like to visit Howl's Moving Castle because then you would be able to open doors to absolutely anywhere you wanted to go. Also - Calcifer.(less)

We're just coming to the end of the Long Wet Season, so this will be my Long Dry Season reading list, taking me up to September-ish.

I'm just finishing up A Brief History of Seven Killings by Marlon James (not that brief at almost 700 pages), and Treasure Island, which I started reading after watching Black Sails.

Next, I'm delving into Haunted Futures, an anthology by my publisher Ghostwoods Books, and possibly Antiartists by Ralph Pullins. I've also got another anthology on the go called Shaking the Tree: A Collection of New Fiction and Memoir by Black Women, and I've downloaded The Palace of Illusions, another title by one of my favourite authors, Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni.

I'm trying to put a cap on buying new books until I get through my current TBR pile.(less)

Instagramming


I've just joined Instagram. I tried a few months back, wasn't smitten, but trying again. It's like a cross between Pinterest and Twitter, but with none of the usefulness to authors that Twitter has. For example, you can't include links in your Instagram posts, so you can post a book cover but no seller information, which seems a little pointless. 
 Another thing I seriously dislike about Instag... Read more of this blog post »
