So I've been doing these monthly TBR strategy posts since April. I find they're really helpful for organising my thoughts and tackling small-term reading goals. Here's my strategy for July.
The sun is shining, everyone is sneezing, and June is coming to a close. It has been a very gross and sweaty month here in the UK, but has at least resulted in a lot of indoor reading time for me. Let's take a look, shall we?
So, I have a problem. When I like something, I’ll go completely overboard and love it to death. If I like a song, I’ll play it on repeat until I cannot stand to listen any longer (1997 was a tough year – to this day I cannot listen to ‘My Heart Will Go On’ because Little Justine just loved it so much). It turns out, I do the same thing with books.
I took a chance on Moira Fowley-Doyle's Spellbook of the Lost and Found after falling in love with its gorgeous cover on Twitter. I haven't read The Accident Season, her debut novel, so I didn't really know what to expect in terms of style.
I don’t often participate in memes, but I thought this was one was a great idea! It’s a mid-year look at the best books I’ve read in 2017. Some of them are new, some are older, but they’re all fantastic reads! You can see my full reviews by clicking the links.
Blackwing is a book I heard about on Twitter, a trend I’m noticing more and more for myself. I was curious about it, but not hugely compelled to seek it out. I requested a copy when I saw it go up on NetGalley, and I’m so glad I did. Blackwing was a huge surprise for me, and Ed McDonald has quickly became a new favorite author.
Another week is in the books, and it's time for the weekly wrap up! Books I read Spellbook of the Lost and Found by Moïra Fowley-Doyle Lost Boy by Christina Henry Raven Stratagem (DNF) by Yoon Ha Lee This was a great week for reading because both books I finished were wonderful. Spellbook of … Continue reading Weekly Wrap-Up #11
Series are popular for authors and publishers, every genre book that's released lately seems to be part of a series. But what do readers prefer?
There was so much hype surrounding When Dimple Met Rishi. It is the kind of book that YA readers have been crying out for for ages, and Menon absolutely hit the nail on the head.
I absolutely adore Neil Gaiman and snapped up a copy of this book in hardback within a month of publication. I'm a huge fan of mythology, but know so little about Norse mythology. This is a great introduction to the world of Thor, Loki, Odin, and the whole host of gods and goddesses that inhabit Asgard that have becoming more and more mainstream.
