Down The TBR Hole #1

I found out about this feature idea which is hosted by Lia at Imaginary Places on Paper, and I thought it was a brilliant idea because I have so many books which I’ve had just sitting on my shelves waiting to be read. It’s also a really good chance for me to talk about some books that I want to read, but haven’t read, since I don’t like talking about them unless I’ve done some research.

The artwork for this feature is also by the lovely Lia and it is just gorgeous as well. I love this idea, and hopefully it means I can cull my TBR to a more reasonable size, and also talk about books I wouldn’t normally talk about on my blog! So without further ado, here’s the first five books on my TBR that I’ll be discussing:

Ewan Pendle and the White Wraith by Shaun Hume


While this book sounds really intriguing, especially the fantasy world-building part of the story, I’m not really interested in reading any fantasy books at the moment (nor do I have the time), but I think that this will live up to the wonderful things I’ve read about it so far. The author actually reached out to me, and due to time restraints with everything going on, I really don’t have time to read this, but he’s pretty cool, too.

Verdict: KEEP Continue reading


Top Ten Tuesday: Books I Wouldn’t Mind Santa Leaving Under the Tree

top ten tuesday sig
Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme hosted by the lovely The Broke and the Bookish! This week’s topic is a Christmas themed one: Books I wouldn’t mind Santa leaving under the tree!

I’m the kind of person who will either buy books after I’ve read them, or I’ll buy a book because it’s part of a series I love. Recently, however, I’ve started impulsively buying books because I want to get around to reading them, and now my TBR pile has increased at a faster rate than I can actually read them. I’ll save that’s a story for another time.

For this post, I’ve picked out books I haven’t read yet (because my wishlist also contains books I have read but don’t own). So I present to you, ten books I wouldn’t mind Santa leaving under the tree this year!

Love Letters to the Dead by Ava Dellaria

This has been on my TBR literally forever, and I haven’t gotten around to buying it because I have yet to seen a physical copy at a physical bookstore. I also can’t bring myself to buy it online because Continue reading
