Current Reads

  • Thomas Wildus and the Book of Sorrows by J.M. Bergen: This is one of two books I’ve been reading throughout the month of July for the Middle Grade Marvels group! So far, I have to say I’m not as wrapped up in this one as I was with the other. It’s got an interesting premise, but I find myself a little bored. Still, the last section we read was a bit more exciting, so I’m hoping it has a strong finish!
  • No Truth Left to Tell by Michael McAuliffe: I was sent this book by the publisher and have been trying to read it this entire month. Blog tour books and ARCs have just been getting in it’s way! I have started it and what I’ve read so far has been interesting. It’s a legal thriller, which isn’t my typical read, but the subject matter hits close to home and I want to see how it ends.
  • The Bone Ships by R.J. Barker: My ARC of shame… I’ve been reading this bad boy since 2019. September of 2019, to be exact. I have an e-ARC of it but, frankly, I would fall asleep every time I picked it up. But it’s on my Netgalley shelf and I refuse to let it rot there, throwing off my ratio! I decided to give the audiobook a try since I had an Audible credit just hanging out and, so far, it’s going much better than last time! Wish me luck.

  • Voice of War by Zack Argyle: This was a book I read for a blog tour run by Storytellers on Tour. Though it was definitely a fast-paced read with an interesting magic system, I had some issues with the language used to describe a fat character. You can read my full review here.
  • The Ship of Shadows by Maria Kuzniar: This is a book I read for a #TheWriteReads Ultimate Blog Tour. It’s a middle grade fantasy that features women pirates, thrilling adventures, and cake! I absolutely adored this book and think the target audience would love it even more than I did. You can read my full review here.
  • Knightmare Arcanist by Shami Stovall: And this one I read for yet another #TheWriteReads Ultimate Blog Tour! Sensing a theme, yet? We’ve moved up to young adult, but we’re still squarely in fantasy. I read this book in one day and completely enjoyed the experience! Also, I would like my own mystical creature to bond with now, please and thank you. You can read my full review here.
  • The Jumbies by Tracey Baptiste: I literally just finished this book right before I sat down to write this post. This was the other book we are reading in the Middle Grade Marvels group and, y’all, I loved it! It was so much fun and plenty spooky, with folklore from the Caribbean woven in. No review, as of yet, but it will be coming soon!

What’s Next

  • Crossings by Alex Landragin: This is a weird little book that I snatched up on a whim from Netgalley when it was in Read Now status. I’m not sure if an ebook is the best format in which to read this one as it apparently has some interesting way of reading it, but I’m going to give it a shot!
