Challenges

Beat the Backlog

click here to see how I did on my beat the backlog challenge- spoiler alert- I have not much of a dent in my huge backlog!

Historical Fiction Challenge

I’m keeping on top of challenge and have to say I am enjoying this.

The York King by Amy License

Edward the Fourth’s story continues in this book that could almost be fantasy except it’s all true.

The Book of Perilous Dishes by Donni Rusti

A magical recipe book and a girl quests to retrieve it- I loved the heart warming end and world I haven’t come across before

The Spring of the Ram by Dorothy Dunnett

Nicholaes story continues when he tries to save 13 year stepdaughet

March of the sequels

A months of reading sequels hosted by Sue’s Musings

The Bone Shard Emperor by Andrea Stewart

How does my favourite pirate and newly crowned Emperor fare fare in this sequel

A Desolation Called Empire by Arkady Martine

A complicated but enjoyable space opera with lot’s of political imtrigue.

The Master of The Revels by Nicole Galland

The sequel to The Rise and Fall of Dodo- a fun time-travel romp but I was disappointed that characters from the first book was MIA.

ARCs

The Circus Infinite by Khan Wong

A circus in outer space with a diverse group of people and an asexual hero how could I not read this

Scorpica by G Macallister

I loved this book with a world filled with strong, fabulous women

Other books

These Violent Delights by Chloe Gong

  A retelling Romeo and Juliet in 1920’s Shanghai with monsters- I didn’t love this book as much as I Thought I would

May Day by Josie Jaffrey

I won this book in a giveaway and I am so glad I did- I have rediscovered my love of vampires in this urban fantasy set in Oxford.

Other books not reviewed on my blog

Moonflower Murders by Anthony Horowtiz

I loved this cosyish murder mystery set in a posh hotel in the countryside and I did not guess who the murderer was. The bonus is there is a book within this book that is equally good!

Infallible Justice and Echo Murder by Laura Lasko

These urban fantasies were easy, enjoyable but predictable reads.

Bad Blood: Secrets and Lies in a Silicon Valley Start up by John Carreyrou

I had to read this book after watching The Dropout. This could easily be science fiction with a fantasy book villains but in the case the truth is stranger than fiction.

Top Ten Tuesdays

Books I haven’t mentioned on my blog

21st century book I think will be classics

  1. Looks like you had a great reading month, even if your IRL month was not so good. THE BOOK OF PERILOUS DISHES sounds like a fun one. I might have to check that out.
