I managed to read 10 books during the 40-year period that was March, so I’m aiming for something similar in April. I’m not going to set a TBR for all 10 books (because let’s face it, I don’t want to jinx myself), but I’ve got a couple of fantasy ARCs and a few sci-fi library… Continue reading April 2020 TBR // Royalty, magic, and other worlds

November 2019 TBR // A mix of sci-fi, fantasy, and contemporary

I’ve got some exciting reading planned for November, but I’m only setting myself a gentle TBR. (By gentle, I mean not set in stone.)

September 2019 TBR // Autumn, audiobooks, and ‘big hitters’

A September, my fateful foe. I like September itself, but I don’t like what it heralds: the end of summer. Summer is my favourite season, so when the nights start to cut in and it gets colder, I’m just a sad bean. (I want to be warm all the time and to be able to wear… Continue reading September 2019 TBR // Autumn, audiobooks, and ‘big hitters’
