I'll keep this short and sweet 🙂
In order to try and maintain a 50/50 split of male to female authors this year, I'm going to be periodically making posts like this, where I discuss the next five books from female authors that I want to read. I think that breaking goals down into smaller chunks makes them easier to manage, and… Continue reading TBR BC: The Next 5 Female-Authored Books I’m Reading in 2019 (#1)
Bit late to this one but hey-ho, better late than never. I won't be getting to too many books this month as I have a couple of uni exams in a couple of weeks, but I've got a fairly ambitious TBR. The Gutter Prayer - Gareth Hanrahan. This has been doing the rounds recently,… Continue reading BC: January 2019 TBR
Thanks to Fopp's two books for £5 offer, this month I spent a total of £25.75 on paperbacks (that 75p was from a charity shop purchase). For those that don't know, Fopp is part of the HMV family here in the UK, selling music, films, books, posters, clothing etc. - specialising in more of the indie and obscure media than other outlets.
This month I bought four books - I've been after three of them for quite a while whilst the fourth (the newest release) I only discovered a few weeks ago. I normally try to stay away from newly released books unless I want to read them as soon as possible after publication, but with my internship now in full swing, I thought I would treat myself a little bit. August will see the return to steep discounts if I buy any at all! As usual, I won't be talking much about the review copies I received.
Quick check-in to let you know what I am currently reading/ will be reading for the next week or so. My main novel this week will be A.J. Norfield's Windcatcher, a ~400 page fantasy novel not too distant from Eragon going from other reviews. I'm about 10% of the way through this one and it's a struggle… Continue reading BC: Currently Reading w/c 30/07/2018
After finishing both of the books I borrowed at the start of July, Caraval and a closed and common orbit, I took another trip to the library to see what else took my fancy. Again I only ended up borrowing two actual books (though one is a compilation of two novels).
I've seen a fair few people posting updates about their 2018 reading challenges, but as my blog didn't exist at the start of the year I thought I would combine both my challenge 'announcement' with updates. Without further ado, let's get into them. Read 52 books. I think this might be the one… Continue reading BC: My 2018 Reading Challenges
