August : My Month in Covers

Hi everyone, hope you’ve all had a lovely August with lots of sunshine and socialising.  I’ve had a good month in terms of reading.  I’ve been a bit more focused and although I do have a few reviews yet to schedule I’m kind of on track so all good.  Plus I’ve provided my feedback on the second month of SPFBO books and chosen two books to read fully one already reviewed here and another review to follow tomorrow).  My next batch of books will be highlighted on Monday.  So, here is my month in covers:

July : My Month in Covers

Hi everyone, hope you’ve all had a lovely July and the weather has treated you gently.  I’ve had a slow sort of month in some respects.   Not many books this month as I’ve been too busy with other things.  Anyhow, feast your eyes on this months covers.  I’ve also included my SPFBO covers and my update is here for the first month of the competition.

And here are my SPFBO covers.  I’ve read at least the first 30% of all of these and chosen one book to read completely:

June : My Month in Review

Well everyone, that’s it the first half of 2019 has flown by – I can’t believe how quickly this year is going to be honest but I am having a good time so no complaints.  SPFBO5 starts tomorrow and I will post my first six books then, the cover competition is already underway and my choices are here. and what a tough decision that was.  I’ve included my weekly wrap up in today’s post and also my month in covers which I usually post separately.

My weekly wrap up : 2 books read:

  1. Priest of Lies by Peter McLean
  2. Queenslayer by Sebstien deCastell

I also started Soul of the Sword by Julie Kagawa which, so far so good. And I’ve managed to catch up with some reviews.

My next reads:

  1. Storm Cursed by Patricia Briggs
  2. Soul of the Sword by Julie Kagawa
  3. The Toll by Cherie Priest

  3. The Ten Thousand Doors of January by Alix E Harrow
  4. Sorcery of Thorns by Margaret Rogerson

Cover compare:

I actually like both covers – I really like the long spindly yellow coloured trees but I think the creepy headless horse is probably my favourite – wonder what it all signifies?

Which is your favourite?

Hope you’ve all had a good month.
