So, what are the chances I’ll get this beast of a book finished by the end of the month, if I’m about halfway through it now?
This month is the first time I’ve come up with a loose TBR list. There were a couple I needed to read (as I was borrowing them or was going to lend them to someone), the #mythtakereads
book of the month, and a few with LGBT+ representation that I wanted to prioritise reading this month. This was one of them - and I’ve put the others to the side in order to finish this one. .
It’s the first time I’ve tried listening to the audiobook as I’ve read the book. I haven’t been listening to it, though, to further my progress; I’ve been listening back over things I’ve already read, in case I missed anything the first time round. .
I’m really pleased I’ve been reading this because I’ve been enjoying it as much as other people have. I’d heard so many good things and it’s lived up to expectations! I’ve loved the characters and the world and the story - I’ll definitely be chasing my boyfriend to read this soon! That said, I’m glad I’ve been reading this on the kindle because I haven’t had to carry it everywhere 🙊
I’m quite glad I chose to read this one this month because I finished The City of Brass quite early in the month and that’s really thrown me because I haven’t finished the #mythtakereads
book so early before. I keep thinking they’re due to announce the next one soon, but it’s actually just me being premature 😅 but this has given me an excuse to read another book that fits with the theme of mythology and their retellings, so I can still be having a conversation with them. .
If you’re interested in fantasy books, you should check out the twitter account for the book club (@
