Middle Grade March TBR

Hello,

I can’t believe it’s almost March already! This March round 2 of Middle Grade March is happening!

Middle Grade March is a readathon similar to Nonfiction November. The goal for this readathon is to celebrate Middle Grade books and to read more than you regularly would.

This readthon is hosted by Krista of BookAndJams and Katie of Life Between Worlds over on BookTube.

I love Middle Grade fiction and I think this is the perfect way to get to some of the books sitting on my shelves

#TheReadingQuest TBR

Hi there,

I did post my TBR on Instagram before the challenge started but I thought I’d post it here too.

#TheReadingQuest is an awesome four week reading challenge based on video games. The challenge runs from Sunday 13 August to Sunday 10 August. The challenge runs like a bingo board with each title representing a stage (reading prompt) you must complete. The difference is that you’re starting point on the grid depends on the character class you chose.

For more info about the challenge head to Read at Midnight’s blog.

There are four character classes – each represent a character type for a video game:

  • Book with a one word title: Arcadia by Iain Pear
  • Book that contains magic: Truthwitch by Susan Dennard
  • Book based on Mythology: The Firebrand by Marion Zimmerman Bradley

Hi all! And welcome to a new month and another TBR post. I’m sorry for my lack of posts – still trying to find a balance now I’m back at uni. Because of my mounting assessments, I ‘ve decided to keep my TBR low since I don’t need any added pressure.

Most of these books are for my Around the World in 52 Books Reading Challenge.

Now onto the books!

December TRB

Hi all! I’m back again with my December TRB. I haven’t picked too many books this month as I hoping to ease back into my writing and being the holiday season I might not have that much reading time. Also I might be getting books for Christmas or at the Boxing Day sales and will want to read them right away.

I haven chosen 5 books this month and I might drag over 2 from my November TRB – The Lies of Locke Lamora and Skin – as I really want to read them before the year is out

Now onto the books!

 

#1 His Dark Materials Trilogy ~ Philip Pullman

HDM COVERS

This month I’m taking part in the His Dark Materials Read-along hosted by Jen Campbell and Holly from Library at the Edge of the World. I am exciting because I haven’t read this series – I have only read half of the first book around the time the horrid movie adaptation came out. I love the concept of this world and I can’t wait to dive into it!

#2 Room ~ Emma Donoghue

ROOMI found this one on BookTube, I can’t remember who recommended it, but I just loved the concept of this one. It’s told from the perspective of a five-year-old named Jack. Jack and his Ma live in a locked room. Room is home to Jack, but for his Ma it’s the prison she’s been held in for 7 years. It sounds dark and creepy and the fact it’s told from a child’s point of view makes it more interesting. And I think it was short listed for the Man Booker so I’m exciting to get to this.

#3 Epitaph for Three Women ~ Jean Plaidy

THREE WOMENI picked this one up from the library as a) historical fiction and b) about Joan of Arc. I’m fascinated by Joan of Arc and want to read more about her life. I haven’t heard about the other women mentioned in this story – Katherine de Valois and Eleanor of Gloucester. But it’s set just before the Wars of the Roses with the death of Henry V which is a favourite time period of mine. I think i should enjoy this one.
