Mid-Year Freak Out Book Tag!

Hey guys! My lovely friend Kate did this tag last week and I can’t believe it’s that time of the year already! This is by far one of my most favourite tags to do and I love revisiting what I’ve read so far each year. So that’s what I’m bringing you all day and first, like Kate, I just want to take a look at my reading challenge:

Considering I was in a book slump for the first 2-3 months of the year, I’m really pleased that I’ve managed to claw my way back and I’m sitting pretty comfortably at 42 books! I can’t believe I’m still 6 books ahead of schedule, that is crazy! I should easily make 80!

Synopsis: 

At the height of their success, the electric folk band Black Dog invited journalists to a desolate island for an infamous publicity stunt: the burning of a million dollars. But the stunt backfired and the band split up, increasing the value of their final album vastly. It’s this album that Tinkler’s got his eye on, and he hires none other than the Vinyl Detective and Nevada to hunt a copy down.

Narrowly avoiding a killing spree, negotiating deranged Black Dog fans, and being pursued by hack celebrity Stinky Stamner and his camera crew, the Vinyl Detective and Nevada discover that perhaps all was not as it seemed on Holy Island – and that in the embers of that fire are clues of a motive for murder…

June 2019 TBR!

Hey guys! Today I am bringing you my June TBR. I read quite a lot of crime thriller last month so for June I want to mix it up a bit and read some fantasy! Here’s what I want to read:

Wildcard by Marie Lu: I read Warcross on the weekend and it was actually really good! It was action-packed and had really interesting characters. I became so invested in the story and I loved the massive twist at the end! I ordered Wildcard straight away and I cannot wait to read it now! I’m so, so excited to see what happens and who’ll come out on top since I don’t think Marie follows conventional endings.

May 2019 Wrap Up!

Hey guys! Today I am bringing you my May wrap up. I read a decent amount but I am a bit disappointed as I wanted to read a ton more. Sadly I got ill towards the end of the month and it ground my reading to a complete halt. Very frustrating but not a lot you can do! I managed to read six books which I think it’s still pretty good and nearly all of them were part of a series. Here’s what I read:

Warlock Holmes: The Sign of Nine by G.S. Denning: This is the fourth book in the Warlock Holmes series and if you haven’t heard of these books before just think of a fantasy version of Sherlock Holmes. G.S. Denning brings another round of twists to the original Sherlock Holmes stories with The Sign of Nine. While not as funny as the first couple books in the series, I still found this one really creative and witty; it was filled with so many bizarre and hilarious moments. If you are a fan of the originals I highly recommend these books.

The Manhattan Project by Paul McNeive: This is a bioterrorism thriller and it’s an incredibly harrowing story. It revolves around one man’s thirst for revenge and his plan to kill millions of innocent people. The thing that shocked me the most about reading this was how frighteningly real it seemed. I couldn’t get the thought out of my head that this is something that could easily happen in real life. It was a really tense and gripping thriller – certainly one that will stay with me for a while!
