July TBR Strategy

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.

Discussion: Genre Binge

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.

ARC Review: Blackwing

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.

Review: Norse Mythology

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.
