The time has finally come for the big reveal of that Secret Blogging Project I’ve been  mentioning. I’m going to be joining a group of really lovely and talented ladies to write for a new blog – Tea in the Treetops! With my second bub due at Christmas I’m going to have a lot […]

Roundup: September 2013

It’s time for a look back at the past month on the Oaken Bookcase. Can you believe it’s October already? It’s been a very busy month and seems to have flown by. I’ve read a fair bit more this month but the towering to-read pile still doesn’t seem to be getting any smaller. It’s a […]

Roundup: August 2013

It’s time for a look back at the past month on the Oaken Bookcase. I realise it’s already the 5th and I completely missed the end of August. No excuses, it’s just that things have been so frantic around here that I totally forgot. Several things have been going on that have disrupted both my […]

The Bout of Books is on again! It starts this coming Monday and there’s still plenty of time to sign up. Here’s a bit of info about the read-a-thon: The Bout of Books read-a-thon is organized by Amanda @ On a Book Bender and Kelly @ Reading the Paranormal. It is a week long read-a-thon […]

Discover Aussie Fantasy 2013: Wrap Up

Well, July is at an end and so is the Discover Aussie Fantasy feature for another year. I’ve read some great books this month! Interestingly and also unintentionally, all but one book was by lady authors – where are all the Aussie blokes in Fantasy? Don’t forget, there’s still a few hours until the end […]

Authors whose works I am hoping to feature this year include: Amanda Bridgeman, Margo Lanagan, Stephen Ormsby, Kylie Chan, Carole Wilkinson, Paula Weston, Marianne De Pierres […]


Hello everyone! Yes, I am still here. I was going to write a long ranty post about how my last few weeks have been, but I figured you don’t really want to know about that. Instead, know that I had to take a break from bloggy things for a variety of reasons, mostly involving Mr […]

Wicked Wildfire Read-a-thon: Goals

Okay so I totally had this on my calendar and everything, then I was home sick all last week and hardly touched my blog or calendar at all. But I am going to try to make up for lost time since I did actually read quite a bit over the weekend! The Wicked Wildfire read-a-thon […]

Roundup: May 2013

It’s time for a look back at the past month on the Oaken Bookcase. Yes, I’m still around. May has been a fairly quiet month around here – I haven’t had a lot of time for reading, even though I took part in Bout of Books. I’ve also hit something that I haven’t had in […]
