I’ve been away from my blog for a couple of weeks. I started a new job, and it hasn’t left much time for reading. Or checking blog posts. Or pretty much anything else really… I’ve read one book in the past two weeks.
But. I received a few new books this week, and my TBR is back up and running! I’d been whittling away at it for a while, to try and get it down to something “manageable”. But let’s just say, I missed that huge pile of books by the side of my bed. I did not miss the pressure of ARC deadlines looming… I plan to keep on top of those in future!
This TBR is a bit of a re-cap. What I have been reading, and what I will be reading. I’m not bothering to list the ARCs because, firstly, there’s a lot… And, secondly, some of them have some very far off publication dates.
I want to review If Women Rose Rooted, because I loved it so much. It wouldn’t be an exaggeration to say that it changed my life. I actually wrote something, and then took it down because it felt too personal. But honestly, every single other review calling it “mindblowing” and “powerful” would be right. I’m not sure what else there is left to say…?
These are just the books I have new… My actual TBR is probably a few dozen books larger… But after awhile, they get shelved and I forget about them. If I didn’t read something in a month, I may get round to it later and I may not.
The ones I’m most looking forward to:
A Discovery of Witches was recommended by Brooke Hampton. It looks great, and I know there’s going to be a TV series – which means it was popular enough to warrant at least a look.
Lethal White is the newest Robert Galbraith (aka JK Rowling). I liked the first two in the series, and rather lost interest in the third. Still, she’s a phenomenal writer so I’m looking forward to giving the Cormoran Strike novels another go.
Pillars of the Earth is supposed to be fantastic, so I’m looking forward to seeing what all the fuss is about.
Not sure about:
I was not crazy about the first book in the Black Witch Chronicles. I really can’t remember why I bought the second one… So I’m dubious about The Iron Flower. Still, it might surprise me.
The Lies That Bind: Rethinking Identity is looking a little too heavy for me right now.
Fawkes is either going to be great, or awful. But reading the description again when it arrived, I think it may have too many feels for me.
