Hello, hello! I hope you’re all keeping well. My September is a little more chilled, both reading and personal life wise. This month I’ll be helping to load a wagon full of aid that the charity I’m a trustee for will be sending over to Moldova to help the Ukrainian refugees there, but other than that, I have a relatively quiet month. Reading wise, Septembers TBR is quite a bit less than last month, with only 10 books, still more than I would have liked! I managed to read 12 out of the 14 books I had planned last month which I am chuffed about because I definitely thought it would be more like 9. If I get the chance, which probably won’t happen, I’m going to try and fit in the August reads I didn’t manage, but these will probably be put off till later in the year. What do your Septembers look like? Do you have any of the below on your TBR for that month? Let me know in the comments.
Orbit very kindly gave me access to two of my most anticipated reads of the year. One Dark Window sounds like it’s going to be a creepy and atmospheric read. Notorious Sorcerer sounded a little quirky and, after reading the first few lines I have a feeling I’m going to love the MC. Bindle Punk Bruja is inspired by an ancient Mexican folktale.. So I have high expectations. I was so happy to get approved for A Magic Steeped in Poison after reading so many rave reviews for it, and can’t wait to give it a read.
Having adored all the previous Ordshaw books I was so excited when the author got in touch asking if I wanted to read an early copy of Dyer Street Punk Witches. His urban fantasies are always quirky, filled with brilliantly written characters, so I’m excited to give this one a read. If you know me, you know I will read anything Silvia Moreno-Garcia writes and Signal to Noise will be my second sci-fi from her. I managed to snag a beautiful early copy of Mindwalker and it sounds like it’s going to be a wild ride, so I can’t wait to dive in. How Zelda Married Death is another quirky read on my TBR this month, it sounds like it will be a quick and fun read.
The Witches of Moonshyne Manor is about a group of Octogenarian Witches who have to fight against a looming threat, which sounds quirky and right up my street. Another quirky read is The Dead Romantics which features a woman falling in love with the ghost of her old boss, I read a novel by Poston earlier this year and loved it, so excited to give this one a go.
