Where did May go? I CAN’T BELIEVE WE’RE NEARLY HALFWAY THROUGH THE YEAR??? Anyway last month was a hectic one, but I got some AMAZING books that I can’t wait to share with you all! I got some ARC’s, did some book swaps and naturally bought books too!
Let’s get to it!
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.

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:
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!

So last month I got my fiance, Ben to choose my TBR for the month! I thought I’d do a quick summary post of how I got on with the books he chose – I think I did pretty well! As a reminder here are the books he chose: Fiance Chooses my TBR!
A classic book:
To Kill A Mockingbird
I actually got this read and I’m SO glad I did! It was so interesting and I couldn’t believe it had taken me so long to get to it. I can’t wait to write my review of it, I can see why it is Ben’s favourite book.
