2019 Rewind Challenge

I saw this challenge over on Books Bones and Buffy.  Tammy has come up with this idea to try and catch up, during the second half of the year, with some of the books that have passed by unread and are now sitting waiting patiently on the tbr.  We all know how easily this happens and once it does those books seem to get forgotten in the relentless pursuit of the new shiny releases.  I really like this idea and decided I want to join the challenge.  There’s still almost half a year and so if I choose six of the books that I’ve already undertaken to read and put them on my challenge then I’m hoping it will keep me on track.

So, here are the books I’ve chosen, I’ve gone for a combination of books requested from Netgalley, purchases and a couple of books from authors who were gracious enough to offer me the second books in their series:

Two books from authors – with deep apologies for not yet having picked these up:

Two books fairly recently purchased – I am determined to strike a balance between review books and those I buy:

And finally, two Netgalley books that I was really excited to be approved for but kind of lost the plot with my scheduling and simply couldn’t fit them in:

Waiting on Wednesday : Clockwork City (Delphic Division #2) by Paul Crilley

“Waiting On Wednesday” is a weekly meme that was originally created by Breaking the Spine.  Unfortunately Breaking the Spine are no longer hosting so I’m now linking my posts up to Wishful Endings Can’t Wait Wednesday. Don’t forget to stop over, link up and check out what books everyone else is waiting for.  If you want to take part, basically, every Wednesday, we highlight a book that we’re really looking forward to.  This week my book is : Clockwork City (Delphic Division #2) by Paul Crilley
clockworkCop. Drunkard. Low-grade magic user. My name is Gideon Tau, but most people just call me London.

Three years ago, someone killed my daughter. I sacrificed everything to learn his name – and then allowed that knowledge to be erased from my mind.

It was for a good cause: I was saving the world, after all.

But now I have to start over from scratch, with only my boss and my dog to help me find my daughter’s killer. The reanimated corpse of my boss, and my alcoholic, foul-mouthed demonic sidekick dog, that is.

Our journey will take us from Durban, South Africa to London, England.

And once we’re there… well, if things seemed dark before, they’re about to get a lot darker.

I really enjoyed Poison City so eagerly await the next instalment.
