Challenge, Readalong / August 3, 2015

Mistborn 2

The time has come for The Great Mistborn Readalong! I’ve never read Brandon Sanderson’s arguably most popular series, Mistborn, so when Gollancz organised a readalong this summer, I thought it was the perfect chance to do so!

The readalong will kick off on today, 3rd August and ends on my birthday, 4 October. The plan is to read one book every 3 weeks: read more

2015 TBR Challenge / April 22, 2015

2015 TBR Challenge

If you aren’t aware, I will be doing a TBR Challenge for 2015! It’s a little bit more unique as it involves 12 different challenges – and I’ll be doing one a month. Read more about the different challenges in the introduction post.

Last month, my challenge was to ‘Read a Series Finale’, and I picked Dreams of Gods and Monsters by Laini Taylor. I had really high hopes for this as I loved the first two books in the series. Thankfully, it didn’t disappoint! For all my (non-spoiler) thoughts, read my review of Dreams of Gods and Monsters! read more

Challenge / March 31, 2015

Not too long ago I was on Twitter and posted a simple status asking if I was the only book lover/blogger who owned books that intimidated them. I mentioned how much I want to read these particular books but they really scare me. I said that I was afraid I won’t love them, I won’t get the hype behind them, or I just won’t understand them. read more

2015 TBR Challenge / March 2, 2015

2015 TBR Challenge

I know this is two months late, but I’m finally posting about my TBR Challenge for the year, which was inspired by Katytastic. Instead of putting names of books into the jar, I have put 12 bookish challenges! Each month, I’ll read a book that meets that challenge.

I realise that we are now in March, so for 2 of the remaining 10 months of the year, I will pick 2 challenges to complete that month. I think this will help broaden my reading horizon and take me out of my comfort zone (and hopefully prevent a reading slump)! read more

Our Lady of the Streets by Tom Pollock

To celebrate the launch of the final book in Tom Pollock’s fantastic urban fantasy series, Our Lady of the Streets on 7 August 2014, Jo Fletcher books (Quercus) are hosting an epid reread of the first two books in the series, The City’s Son and The Glass Republic.

It’s 4 chapters a week, and it starts tomorrow on the 6 February 2014. Each Thursday, there will be a recap and discussion on the Jo Fletcher blog and other host blogs (Winged Reviews will be one of these hosts, so stay tuned)! Tom will be much involved, plus in the final week he will do a Google hang out in which he will discuss the first two books, reads an exclusive extract from book three and answers some of your questions! read more
