Six For Sunday is a weekly blog series created by Steph @ ALittleButALot. Prompts for April, May, and June 2020 are now up, and today’s prompt is Oldest books on my TBR. I try to work through my TBR oldest to newest, but there are some it’s still taking me a while to get around to.
Hosted by Tynga’s Reviews and Reading Reality, Stacking the Shelves is a regular feature where I share everything I’ve added to my TBR list in the past month. Each month I look at the books I’ve discovered and tell you what they’re about, where I found them, why I want to read them, what their shelf status is, how high of a priority they are, and finally what my rating prediction is.
After a trip to Prague at the beginning of the month, the remaining weeks in March were very quiet, not least because of the country basically shutting down due to COVID-19. I started off busy at work, then London Book Fair and other work-related events were cancelled. By mid-March, everyone in my building was working from home, and being cooped up in my house left me going a little stir crazy. Unfortunately, there are a few people close to me who’ve been affected much worse, losing jobs and being separated from family overseas. It’s been a stressful and emotional month, to be quite honest.
I’m reading The Priory of the Orange Tree right now and it’s taking up a lot of reading time so I don’t have any reviews to post, so here’s another book tag! This time I’m looking at books I haven’t read.
The House of Berethnet’s thousand year rule is all that has kept the Nameless One, a powerful dragon with an army of wyverns and wyrms at his disposal, locked away in the Dreadmount. Pressure is mounting on the current queen, Queen Sabran the Ninth, to give the West an heir and continue the protection of her realm. Assassination attempts are creeping closer and closer but Ead, a mage disguised as a lady-in-waiting, is silently thwarting them all, leading to rising suspicion of her identity at court.
This week I’m willing my favourite authors to release new books! Whether it’s a new standalone novel or the next in the series, here are five authors I can’t wait for new books from!
I decided to finally do the Reread, Rewrite, Burn book tag that I’ve seen Kristen Kraves Books do a few times now. The rules are pretty simple: pick three books and, in the style of ‘Snog, Marry, Avoid’ (or any other less-PG13 versions you’ve come across) you pick which of the three books you would reread, rewrite, or just throw in a fire.
Olivia Gatwood’s first full length collection looks at what it’s like to grow up as a girl and grow into a woman in world where so much violence is afflicted upon girls and women; a world where our popular culture feeds on their pain.
It’s that time of year again! The OWLs Magical Readathon starts on April 1st and G from Book Roast has released this year’s prompts, along with the Wizarding Career Guide with new careers and extra curricular courses!
Jonathan Van Ness, one fifth of the fabulous Queer Eye team we’ve all come to know and love, tells his story from the very beginning, starting back when Jonathan was just little Jack living in a small town in the mid-west, all the way up to breaking onto our laptop screens with a Netflix-backed reboot that has become an international phenomenon.
