August TBR!

Hey guys! Here’s my late August TBR, oops! I really should start posting my TBRs earlier because I’ve already finished one book this month and I’m nearly halfway through another. I plan on reading 6 books this month and so far so good! I actually extended my reading challenge to 50 books but I’ve already read 40 so I may need to extend it again, ahh!! Anyway, here is my August TBR:

Sherlock Holmes: The Devil’s Dust by James Lovegrove: This is the one I am nearly halfway through! I actually was a bit hesitant to read this because the last Sherlock Holmes book I read by James Lovegrove bored me to tears, I didn’t like it at all. But this one is actually pretty good, which I was really surprised by! I love the plot and I love how well he seems to have captured Sherlock and Watson. There’s a lot of sarcastic comments which are making me smile and laugh and I love that! The mystery is only just beginning so I can’t wait to read more and see Sherlock start to unravel everything!

The Further Adventures of Sherlock Holmes: The Devil and the Four by Sam Siciliano: Two Sherlock Holmes books in one month! Good job I am a fan of his! This one looks very interesting, it seems different to other ones I have read and there’s no mention of John in the synopsis. It doesn’t look like he is in this and instead there’s a cousin. That’s intriguing! I’ll be picking this up as soon as I finish The Devil’s Dust so I hope it’s good!

WWW Wednesday!

Hey guys! I realised before I started writing this that I haven’t done a WWW Wednesday post since January! That’s crazy! I thought I’d bring it back this week and give it a little love while I update you all on what I’ve been reading recently and my plans for the rest of the month! Lets get into it!

WWW Wednesday is a meme hosted by Sam over at Taking on a World of Words.

I was sent an ARC for review by the publisher, so big thank you to them! I absolutely love the cover, it’s so beautiful and it sounds really intriguing. I love the supernatural and I love crime thrillers, so two of my favourite things in one book is awesome! I’m honestly not very far in yet so I don’t have much of an opinion but my curiosity is piqued. So far it seems good though and I can’t wait to get further in. I’m definitely interested in the supernatural side of the story. It’s only 250 pages so hopefully I’ll finish it over the next couple of days and have a review up for it soon!

July TBR!

Hello! I kind of crashed and burned in June as I only managed to read three books. I didn’t manage to read every book on my TBR, so I’ll be carrying those over for this month. I’ve also picked some extra ones, hopefully I’ll be able to read them all! Here’s what I plan on reading:

The Midnight Star by Marie Lu: I’m glad I didn’t call it quits on this trilogy because the second book was a lot better than the first. Adelina is almost a completely different person and her actions are a lot darker and more disturbing. I’ve really loved the turn this series has taken and I can’t wait to see how it all ends!

The Things We Learn When We’re Dead by Charlie Laidlaw: This was very kindly sent to me by the author and I’ll be reading it as soon as I finish The Midnight Star. It sounds like it will be a really refreshing and interesting read!

September Book Haul!

Hey guys! Sorry for not posting on Friday but I’d just got back off holiday and I was bloody exhausted! I didn’t have time to plan a post so to make up for it, I am posting today instead! I spent two weeks in California and it was absolutely amazing… I loved every second of it and went to some incredible places. I really missed the UK though and couldn’t wait to get home.

I bought a lot of books this month. I bought seven books. Three of them were pre-orders and then whilst I was on holiday I visited Barnes & Noble where I purchased four books. I have to say, anyone who gets to visit that shop on a regular basis is seriously lucky. It was one of the most magical bookshops I have ever been in. I was just blown away by all the beautiful books and I wanted to buy so many. I had to restrain myself! I’ll start with the books I pre-ordered and then get into my Barnes & Noble purchases!

1) Wonder Woman: Warbringer by Leigh Bardugo

I bought two copies of Wonder Woman! How could I not? Waterstones had a signed limited edition hardback and it’s absolutely gorgeous! I read this book on holiday and sadly the paperback got a bit trashed. I hate myself for it because I hate damaging books but when I was travelling here, there and everywhere it couldn’t be helped. I did like this book but it was a bit slow and I wanted more action. I liked Leigh Bardugo’s writing but I wasn’t blown away by it. I’ll have a full review coming soon!
