Another month has passed us by and it’s time for my April 2017 TBR. Something I’ve been kind off dreading – I’m not reading or writing so much these days and thinking about all the books on my shelf is a little daunting. In fact it’s almost suffocating. This month isn’t going to be ambitious. It’s going to be safe. Because I need safe. I need to come out of this month feeling like I succeeded at reading.
The Mime Order
Paige Mahoney has escaped the brutal prison camp of Sheol I, but her problems have only just begun: many of the survivors are missing and she is the most wanted person in London…
As Scion turns its all-seeing eye on the dreamwalker, the mime-lords and mime-queens of the city’s gangs are invited to a rare meeting of the Unnatural Assembly. Jaxon Hall and his Seven Seals prepare to take centre stage, but there are bitter fault lines running through the clairvoyant community and dark secrets around every corner.
Then the Rephaim begin crawling out from the shadows. Paige must keep moving, from Seven Dials to Grub Street to the secret catacombs of Camden, until the fate of the underworld can be decided.
I’m currently reading this and making slow progress – not because I’m not enjoying the book but because I’m so busy I don’t have time to read anymore. This will hopefully be done before the month’s out! I will be disappointed if it’s not to be honest. The character arcs and story lines in this book get way more complicated and the political side of things really comes into its own. Something that makes these books my favourite.
The Song Rising
Following a bloody battle against foes on every side, Paige Mahoney has risen to the dangerous position of Underqueen, ruling over London’s criminal population.
But, having turned her back on Jaxon Hall and with vengeful enemies still at large, the task of stabilizing the fractured underworld has never seemed so challenging.
Little does Paige know that her reign may be cut short by the introduction of Senshield, a deadly technology that spells doom for the clairvoyant community and the world as they know it . . .
I started reading this last month and then realised that I had no clue what the hell was going on so decided to reread the first two. I’m too excited to read this book so it’s making me sad that I haven’t made it to this one yet so my only aim for April is to finish and review this book. Anything more than that is a bonus.
The Light Fantastic
As it moves towards a seemingly inevitable collision with a malevolent red star, the Discworld has only one possible saviour. Unfortunately, this happens to be the singularly inept and cowardly wizard called Rincewind, who was last seen falling off the edge of the world…
I am desperate to get to the second book in the Discworld series, I’m so aware of how far behind I am on my yearly challenge. Hopefully this will be the month where I will begin to catch up on my aim. We will see. I’m not holding my breath though. Things seem to be falling by the wayside and reading is definitely not high on the priority list at the moment.
So there it is my 2017 April TBR. Nothing too ambitious this month, I’m hoping to read more but I’m perfectly happy to read these and nothing else – please let me know what you’re reading this month! I would love to hear all about your books!
