It’s been a difficult month in a string of continuing difficult months, but there have been a few bright spots in it for me, and I have … tentative plans? Let’s look at what June did.
In the final part of our readalong, the murderer is finally unmasked, and Edrehasivar’s reign begins to stabilise. And I spilled my feelings everywhere. Again. Let’s discuss The Goblin Emperor. Spoilers follow for chapter 27 through to the end.
This train is gathering steam this week, as certain parties make a very dangerous move – and pay for it. Meanwhile Maia is finding his feet as a politician as well as in his role as emperor, but will there be a cost to that? Let’s discuss The Goblin Emperor. Spoilers follow for chapters 18 through 26.
In this week’s chapters, everybody wants a piece of the emperor – except when they don’t. And it looks like the murder plot might be thickening? Let’s discuss The Goblin Emperor. Spoilers follow for chapters 10 through 17.
In the first round of our read-along, everything is sudden and nothing is what I expected. And I can’t get enough of this book. Let’s discuss The Goblin Emperor. Spoilers follow for chapters 1 through 9.
It’s May 1st. The third annual Wyrd and Wonder is finally here! It’s here, and I am already making changes to my intended reading list. But screw it, I don’t want to live in a world where chaos does not reign!* *Only occasionally. Please moderate your chaos. Also, stay at home.
*Dusts the shelves, throws open curtains, opens windows* Hello, and welcome back! Yes, I am still alive, still … getting by? As I hope we all are? Times are so strange, you guys. So strange. But hey, let’s talk about something more fun! Today I am planning a thing, with the help of my Wyrd and Wonder cohorts – I bring you the Wyrd and Wonder 2020 Readalong!
The Deverry Readalong continues apace, and February saw me reading Darkspell for the first time. Things get darker and more dangerous, both in the past, the present and presumably in the future, for our Wyrd-bound heroes – and I’m here for all of it.
So I can’t sit on this any longer, and it’s looking unlikely that I’ll have time to add anything to this list with only two and a half days left in the year. So it’s time to present the list of my absolute favourite reads of 2019! (In no particular order, because otherwise I’d be preparing this post ALL DAY and into the night…)
It’s all about endings – some a relief, and some utterly heartbreaking – in the final chapters of this book. This damn book. Grab your tissues and join me to discuss the fate of our darlings. Spoilers will follow for chapters 43 through to the end.
