As I mentioned in a post a few days back, Shadowhawk’s Shade is now three years old, although it wasn’t called that when the blog started up, and it has gone through a fair few iterations since then. But Shadowhawk’s Shade is what this blog is now and that is what matters. Celebrating the third blogversary is obviously an important step.
And as I mentioned about an hour or so ago on Twitter and Facebook, I’ve joined with my friend Sally who runs The Qwillery, one of the best genre blogs out there and one that you should most definitely be following, to do a giveaway as part of an involved celebration. So head on over to her blog and check out what’s what. The link is here.
There are four books up for grabs. You get to pick one. Once the giveaway ends, a winner will be picked (open internationally!), and the winner can choose the book. The books being offered are:
- Dirty Magic by Jaye Wells
- A Soldier’s Duty by Jean Johnson
- Gotrek & Felix: Road of Skulls by Josh Reynolds
- Ack-Ack Macaque by Gareth Powell
Do check out the Qwillery post!
I did two “Best of the…” lists last year, one for the half-year from January to June, and the other for the half-year from July to December. The lists proved to be quite popular, and I was recently asked if I was going to be doing any more. To which I said yes. I like putting together lists like this. It gives me a chance to reflect a bit on all the good stuff I’ve been reading in novels and comics, or listening to in terms of audiobooks, audio dramas and so on.
You can check out my top-of-the-month lists on my Reading Awards page and this list is both an extension, and a continuation of what goes on there.
Let’s see what makes the cut and which comes close then!
