Waiting On...

In May I was waiting on the second release this year by Juliet Marillier, Cat Winter's second book, the sequel to Cracked and the one with the stunning cover!

Cover Reveals

Can't Wait To Read In June

The Girl Who Never Was | Glimpse | Say Her Name

I went to an amazing event in May as part of CrimeFest - Murder, Magic & Mayhem featuring Jasper Fforde, Ben Aaronovitch & Paul Cornell! It was a great night and it was lovely to see all three authors again. And yes, I was sitting in the front row... The green trousers belong to Cheryl who was hosting the event.

Challenge Updates

Goodreads 174/365

23 books ahead! This is good news as it means when the inevitable slump hits (and it will) I do have a bit of a cushion!

Fairy Tales Retold 1/16

No change this month, need to start reading fairy tales!

TBR Pile Challenge 2014 27/50(200)

A huge leap this month as I read 19 books I own, 13 of which qualified for this challenge! Over halfway to my 'official' target but this is the one where I want to read 200+ so I need to step it up a gear :)

2014 Series Challenge 5/12

I binge read the entire Mortal Instruments series this month so I could read City of Heavenly Fire without running across any spoilers. I also finished the Divergent series, I have nothing to say about that last book...

  1. That CrimeFest event looks so fun! And you got to see Ben Aaronovitch, I'm jealous. Love his Peter Grant books :)


    1. It was huge fun! I've just started a re-read of the Peter Grant books before the next one comes out :)

  2. Great job on reading all of those books! Wow! I am currently reading City of Heavenly Fire and am loving it! The series is so great. It's one of my favorites.

    1. I read City of Bones & City of Ashes in 2008 and although I kept buying the books I didn't read the rest until the beginning of May this year :)
