March 2020 TBR!

Hey guys! Today I am bringing you my March TBR and it’s such an exciting month because Chain of Gold is finally here! You bet I’m reading this as soon as possible. I’ve been waiting so long for it! I’m hoping it doesn’t give me a book hangover because I also want to read some other books. Here’s my TBR:

Chain of Gold by Cassandra Clare: After waiting so long for this, it’s finally here! I can’t wait to devour it and I’m so looking forward to meeting another generation of shadowhunters! I’ll probably read it this weekend! 

Call Down the Hawk by Maggie Stiefvater: I got this when it first came out and still haven’t read it! I loved The Raven Cycle and I’ve said so many times that I found Roman to be the most interesting character. I want to learn more about his dreams! I hope this trilogy is just as good.

February 2020 Wrap Up!

Hey guys! Today I am bringing you my February wrap up and I managed to read nine books! I’m really pleased with that and I’m currently four books ahead of schedule for my reading challenge. Hopefully I can keep this up! Here’s what I read in February:

Manifestations of Sherlock Holmes by James Lovegrove: This is a collection of short stories and sadly it wasn’t for me. I loved it at first but when I hit the halfway point, maybe even less than that, the stories took on a weird turn and I lost interest. I skipped a lot of them and then skimmed the rest just so I could finish it.

Wonder Woman: Warbringer by Leigh Bardugo: I have been eagerly awaiting this graphic novel and it was even better than I thought it would be! I loved the art so much and the characters were exactly how I pictured them. The colours were gorgeous and I became so engrossed in the story. I really hope they adapt Catwoman and Superman as well!

Birthday book haul!

Hey guys! It was my birthday yesterday and as always, I received a few books that I’m so excited to share with you today! Here’s what I got:

The Last Wish by Andrzej Sapkowski: All aboard the hype wagon! I hadn’t heard of this series until the Netflix TV show was announced and I’m curious to see what all the fuss is about. I’ve not heard anything bad about the books so I hope I like them too!

WWW Wednesday!

Hey guys! I noticed the other day that I haven’t done a WWW Wednesday post since 2018 which is insane, so I thought I’d post one today. I like doing reading updates every now and again, and WWW Wednesday is the perfect way to do it.

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

Endgame

Currently reading:

Well, one of my reading goals for February was to finish the Fawkes and Baxter trilogy by Daniel Cole and Endgame is the last book! I absolutely love this series and I have thoroughly enjoyed rereading the first two books. Endgame has not disappointed me so far and has actually been a wild ride. I’ve mourned one of my favourite characters, welcomed back another and laughed at lots of scenes. It has been quite different to the first two books but definitely in a good way. I love how it has brought everyone closer together; I’ve loved seeing them slowly transition from being wary of one another to actually working together to solve a case, especially for their friend. I can’t wait to see how this all wraps up and it’s definitely one I’ll be reading again in the future.

Now Reed has to wonder if his mother’s killer is uncomfortably close to home.

Reed enlists his friend, suspended cop Ellery Hathaway, to join his quest in Vegas. Ellery has experience with both troubled families and diabolical murderers, having narrowly escaped from each of them.

Far from home and relying only on each other, Reed and Ellery discover young Camilla had snared the attention of dangerous men, any of whom might have wanted to shut her up for good. They start tracing his twisted family history, knowing the path leads back to a vicious killer—one who has been hiding in plain sight for forty years and isn’t about to give up now.

February 2020 TBR!

Hey guys! Today I am bringing you my February TBR (also my birthday month!). I did really well in January and according to Goodreads I’m up to date with my reading challenge, so hopefully I can keep that going this month.

The Manifestations of Sherlock Holmes by James Lovegrove: I’m currently reading this collection of short stories and I’m enjoying it so far though I do feel that Holmes has solved the cases extremely fast in some of them! I’m not very far in yet though so maybe there’s longer stories further in.
