My To-Be-Read pile is slightly ridiculous. (Again.) And I’m on holiday this week, so I’ve got some time to read! So what’s on the heap?
Takes a deep breath…
(Ok, some of these aren’t entirely fair; I’ve read War of the Worlds, Journey to the Centre of the Earth and The Magicians, but they were part of my BristolCon haul. I’ve also had some of these on my TBR for a year…whoops. And that’s in spite of the amount I have managed to read!)
So! If Cats Disappeared from the World, Your Favourite Band Cannot Save You, Autodrome, The Affinity Bridge, Strange of Tempest, Dreamwalker, Truthwitch, Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell (in progress), Vanished Kingdoms, Prince Thief, The Man In The High Castle, This Savage Song, The Corpse-Rat King (in progress), The Adamantine Palace, The Bone Season, The Court of Broken Knives and Moon’s Artifice.
And on ebook…
The Wizard’s Daughter (in progress), Love&Bubbles, Starborn, The Ninth Rain, Dangerous To Know, Everless, The Written, Sanyare, Valley of Embers, Where The Waters Turn Black, Touch of Iron, Spectris, Shattermoon, The Tethered Mage (in progress), The Secret of Ji, Broad Knowledge & Choose Wisely.
That’s not including the books that are on my “ooh, that’d be good” – this is literally my “I own this and need to actually read the damn thing” list/pile.
And that’s not including a novel about magical teenagers that I’m halfway through, one about a love & gods & epic struggles that I need to do a third read on, two submissions from friends that I’ve put into my work inbox just so I’ll get them done, a short story and some sneaky erotica from a friend that’s on the top of my list because they’re an amazing writer, and whatever new fiction is on Wattpad. Plus, looking through my pile, there’s a bunch of authors that I need to go see if they’ve published anything more…
Despite the towering heap that I suspect some day will fall over, I’m always happy to take recommendations! But if you need me this week – I’ll be reading.
Ps. Someone at work asked me – “So, how many books do you read a year? Is it, like…as many as 50?”
“Oh, yes. Probably a lot more…”
I did then explain that it’s also my job, but still! 😀
