After The Tubridy Show This Morning…

Was filling in for Ryan this morning and I was thrilled to have the lovely David O’Callaghan in from Easons. Firstly because he’s a general all-round nice guy who knows his stuff and is a great talker, secondly because he was the guy who first introduced me to Hugh Howey’s work all that time ago…

This time he brought a few new treats…


I chatted to him about many, *many* books, some of which are sci-fi, some Young Adult or YA (learned a new term today!) and I was asked by a fair few people online afterwards to stick up links to the books he and I had recommended as we were both talking at the speed of light.

I was saying fond things about …

Kenneth Calhoun’s Black Moon

M.R. Carey – The Girl With All The Gifts

and The Martian by Andy Weir

David was talking fondly about…

Divergent by Veronica Roth

John Green’s The Fault In Our Stars

The Maze Runner by James Dashner

Half Bad by Sally Green

The graphic Novel Snow Piercer by Jacques Lob and Jean-Marc Rochette

And we both raved about the wonderful TV experience that is Orphan Black 🙂

He has his own blog over on the Easons website which fills in many more of the gaps – go have a look:
