It’s November already, and that means it’s our blogaversary. Tea in the Treetops was officially launched three years ago today! If you’d like to enter our giveaway, please scroll down.
I’d like to say a special thank you to my co-host, Philippa – thanks for chatting books with me whenever we get a chance!
Even though I haven’t posted as much this year, I am still doing plenty of reading and reviewing when I can. Thank you all of you, our readers, fellow bloggers and listeners, for continuing to support us through such a busy year.
As always, thanks are also due to the publishers and authors from Australia and around the world, who are kind enough to supply me with books to review. It’s an honour to work with you and help you to promote your books – thank you.
There’s not a lot to tell about October, apart from the fact that I read a lot of amazing books! I finished and loved Maggie Stiefvater’s Raven Cycle, and finally got my hands on Gemina (review coming very shortly). The Book of Whispers was the Text Prize winner for 2015 and was just as excellent as it sounded (demons and the crusades!).
One thing I did do this month (I’ll be flailing about it on a podcast episode soon) was to discover Supernatural on Netflix. Yes, I have a new fandom. Have you watched it? Please, fangirl with me! I’m four seasons in and don’t seem to be able to stop!
