ARCs:


Title: Warlock Holmes: My Grave Ritual by G. S. Denning

This isn’t technically an ARC as the author sent me a signed finished copy of it and it means the world to me! I absolutely love this series, and I couldn’t be happier to have this book in my hands – I will be reading it so soon!

Synopsis: As they blunder towards doom, Warlock Holmes and Dr. John Watson find themselves inconvenienced by a variety of eldritch beings. Christmas brings a goose that doesn’t let being cooked slow it down; they meet an electricity demon, discover why being a redhead is even tricker than one might imagine, and Holmes attempts an Irish accent. And, naturally, Moriarty is hanging around… in some form or other.

A Thousand Perfect Notes by C. G. Drews // Review

Title: A Thousand Perfect Notes by C. G. Drews

Rating: ★★★★★

Release: 7th June 2018

Synopsis: Beck hates his life. He hates his violent mother. He hates his home. Most of all, he hates the piano that his mother forces him to play hour after hour, day after day. He will never play as she did before illness ended her career and left her bitter and broken. But Beck is too scared to stand up to his mother, and tell her his true passion, which is composing his own music – because the least suggestion of rebellion on his part ends in violence. When Beck meets August, a girl full of life, energy and laughter, love begins to awaken within him and he glimpses a way to escape his painful existence. But dare he reach for it?divider-2461548_1280

Monthly TBR

Marvel-A-Thon TBR!

Hi everyone!

This is my first month that I have been COMPLETELY FREE of deadlines, so I am ready to kick my freedom off with a good ol’ readathon! As you know, I’ve been wanting to take part in more readathon’s this year – (so far I’ve taken part in Wonder Week, Munches in March, #Thriller-A-Thon and #TimeHop-A-Thon!) and this is one that I am SO excited for!

I absolutely ADORE Marvel and I love reading (obviously) so this is perfect together! Jamieson from Jamishelves created this read-a-thon, and I think it’s genius! The idea is to read a book for each Marvel film released in each ‘Phase’, and you can’t move on to the next phase until completing the previous one – just like the films did! Here is the board below:

marvelathon3

Now to get on to discuss my TBR! I’m sorry that this will be such a long post, but I have planned a book for each film just in case!
