Books I have read:
The Stars at Oktober Bend – Glenda Millard
The Smell of Other People’s Houses – Bonnie Sue Hitchcock
Like Other Girls – Claire Hennessy
Spellslinger – Sebastian de Castell
The Dreamsnatcher and The Shadow Keeper (rereads) – Abi Elphinstone
One Silver Summer – Rachel Hickman
Carnegie List – 3/8
The books have been so varied. The Stars at Oktober Bend is my winner-so-far. It is also the most literary of the three. What do I even mean by literary? Beloved of people with an interest in textual analysis, perhaps. If I had to chose an all-rounder, it would be Wolf Hollow. The story zips along, but it has beautiful sentences which hint at the direction the plot will take.
I have ordered the two books I was missing, and hope to finish the list in time for the announcement. This is my main target in June, which adds five books to my TBR:
As mentioned in my Top Ten Tuesday post of 30.05.2017, I have imposed a month long book-buying ban. The dragon who guards my gold hoard is looking kind of grumpy. Something had to be done. I wish I’d had the forethought to preorder Showstopper by Hayley Barker. I love circus-settings, and I’m desperate to read this. However, I have a terrible – wonderful – habit of buying books in bulk.
Also on my TBR list –
