“Remember remember the fifth of November”

November is here and, although I hate to say it there are now only 7 weeks till Christmas – ahhhhhhhhhhh!  Okay, nobody panic, 7 weeks = 49 days (I can do maths) 49 days seems like a long way away doesn’t it.  Lets stick with 49, a strangely satisfying number.

I’ve had a busy week this week but not in terms of books – I’ve only managed to read one of my planned books – The Nine by Tracy Townsend – which is really good and I highly recommend.  Expertly plotted, great characters, dark urban fantasy, downright creepy  and set in a world that gives me Dickensian vibes.

Anyway, hope you all had a good week.

  1. The Nine by Tracy Townsend

    Me too, I read The Nine last week and WOW. Seriously one of new favorite books! I just started Into the Drowning Deep and WOW. Love it so far! I think this is going to be a great month for reading😁

      I loved it. The characters, the place, the plot, it’s kind of detailed but it just worked so well – and I figured out what was going on fairly early on but it really didn’t matter.

    I envy you The Nine and I also like the look of Hero Risen. I’m with Tammy – I think it’s going to be a bumper year:)

    I’m looking forward to your Dogs of War review. I think I saw the book here first and I’m really considering ordering a copy. Hope you have a great week!

      I really liked it – I thought it would be very military in tone and the start certainly feels like that but it’s a much deeper book than that tbh. It turns into a fight (legal) about rights and then goes even further. And, surprisingly, for me, I loved the characters – Rex makes for very good reading. Emotional and thought provoking.

    I just started reading Artemis, and The Nine is hopefully next! I’m so excited to hear both you and Tammy loved it!

      The Nine was awesome. I’m about a third into Artemis now. Intriguing so far.

    The Nine is one of the titles I’m most curious about, and I see I’m in good company there! 🙂
