Weekly Journal November 8-14

Cherie Priest’s Dreadnought was a great read this week and a review will be up on Wednesday 17th. I am afraid other affairs have taken time from my reading. I have just started to read Pink Noise by Leonid Korogodski.

Next week will be better, I can feel it. December’s pick of books will be out on Monday and I can promise four to five new reviews too.
