My Challenge Check-In for January 2023 in which I talk about how I did with my reading challenges this month, and offer you 5-5 recs for 2 The Sound of Madness Reading Challenge prompts. Which are Are You Gonna Be My Girl and Justice in January.
As they say, there is always a first time for everything. After nearly 4 years of blogging, it’s time for my first ever book tag post! As we all know I’m a music junkie and I’m also a 90s kid, so I just knew if I only ever did one book tag post, it has to be the 90s Music Edition one. With music videos for extra fun!
It’s March! Spring is in the air and I have a LOT of things coming up this month I think you will love. At least I hope so, because I put a lot of work into all of them and I’d hate if they were all for nothing. I will not tell you all of my secrets just yet, but I definitely will give you a sneak peek!
Is it just me or February really just lasted for a blink? I was so occupied with stuff, that halfway through the month I completely forgot that it was my birthday month and didn’t have as much fun as I would have liked. That’s not saying I didn’t have any fun ar that I didn’t have a great birthday month, because I did. But I was just too focused on the coming blog anniversary and other things I’m working on behind the scenes. Oops.
Dark Fire has everything which makes it a masterwork: intrigue, murder mystery, compelling and unconventional characters (Matthew Shardlake is a hunchback for instance, oh and there is a black apothecary, Guy who used to be a monk), and richly detailed world.
You know what month this is? February. And do you know what that means? My birthday is around the corner! I love this month – duh – despite the shit winter weather I hate. But lets see what else I have in store, shall we?
November started with a nice long weekend, which I made longer by being sick. Yay me! On top of it some nice changes are going on in my life, so I could kick this month off on a good note. Honestly I don’t expect much from this month excitement wise. I’ll read a few books, will post things. We’ll have all of our SPFBO semi-finalists ready too so the real fun can began.
Well, June is over now, and it was another eventful month – both emotionally and otherwise. I attended concerts, read books, got awesome news. Find the details in my #MonthlyWrapUp post 🙂
If you enjoy mystery, with a historical background, especially the Tudor era of England, then I strongly recommend giving a shot at Dissolution. It’s gripping, makes you sit on the edge of your seat, even though it’s not exactly fast paced. It will held your interest until the end, and you’ll find yourself totally engrossed and waiting when you can continue reading on. Oh, and did I say it also adds a tiny twist to Anne Boleyn’s story? Yeah, it has many, many layers you’ll enjoy discovering. I also recommend listening to the audiobook, Steven Crossley did a really good job narrating it!
