September TBR

This month I am going to try and complete the Magical Readathon hosted by Book Roast on BookTube! There are quite a few prompts for this readathon and I am going to assign a book to each prompt however, it’s not the end of the world if I don’t manage to read them all! I am going to save the background and character prompts for a later date so for now it’s just the novice path for me in September.

5 Books I Want to Read Update

Back in January I posted about 5  books I really wanted to read in 2021 and now that we are halfway through the year I thought I would post an update! At this stage I’ve only read 1 out of 5 of the books so I really have to get cracking if I want to complete them all. 

The Fifth Season by N.K. Jemisin

This was a wonderful introduction to this trilogy and I can see now why so many people love this book. The writing was descriptive and the world building was immaculate. All of the characters were distinctive and diverse and the way the storylines merged was masterful. I am kicking myself for putting off reading this book for so long and I am happy to have finally completed it. I have a feeling I am going to be continuing on very soon!

My Rating:  ⭐️4/5 stars

The other four books I still need to read are:
