How can this year go by so fast?! And why do I keep getting surprised y this?!?The sun will turn this month and that thought is very depressing…
I’m starting this month in a light reading slump 🥺 which I’m not happy with. Because of that, I’ll take the first week and a bit off reading. Then we”ll see. I have a few readathons coming up that I really want to participate in including Buzzwordathon (12-18th June) and Fantasy Journey A Thon (21-30th June). But i’ll see how I feel by then. I might just end up doing one book for each…

Books I would like to finish but no pressure
Gutten (The Boy) by Jon Kalman Stefansson – The boy is still walking though snow and snowstorms, barely making it out in one piece. I hope I can make some progress on this fascination but slow book this month.
Moribito: Guardian of the Spirit by Nahoko Uehashi – I’m over halfway in this book but due to my reading slump I didn’t finish it last month for Asian Readathon. It’s very interesting and I do want to know what happens. I will finish this in June but I’m not sure when. I hope to read it before the readathons this month.
ARCs overdue that I might read
Nocturna by Maya Motayne – This was on my most anticipated underhypder releases of 2019 and I’m very excited for it. I don’t know much about it but I do know it an Latin-inspired fantasy. And that is really all I know so far. I haven’t seen anything negative about it, nor have I seen much of it around the booksphere, to be honest. Also this might fit into the Fantasy Journey a thon.
Kingdom of Copper by S. A. Chakraborty – I loved the first book in the series, The City of Brass. It took me by surprise and I got thoroughly sucked in. I don’t know much about this book apart from that it takes place after book one, which is always promising. Also this might fit into the Fantasy Journey a thon.
ARC’s due soon that I should read
David Mogo, Godhunter by Suyi Davies Okungbowa – Nigerian fantasy with (I think) god hunting because gods are bad(?). This is another book that made it on to my my most anticipated underhypder releases of 2019. I haven’t seen many good reviews for this book though, so I’m a bit sceptical. This might fit into the Fantasy Journey a Thon.
Across The Void by S. K. Vaughn – a sci-fi book set in the UK. There aren’t enough of UK Sci-Fi’s so I actively pick the ones I find. I loved Do YOu Dream of Terra Two? by Temi Oh earlier this year and I hope this will be good to even though it’s a completely different author and story. #FingersCrossed Also this might fit into the Fantasy Journey a thon.
The Deathless by Peter Newman – I loved Peter Newman’s first series The Vagrant which features a mute lone soldier who carries a special sword and a baby across s dystopian world. It was fascinating. I have yet top finish that series but I loved the writing and I’;m very keen on picking up his second and completely unrelated series, The Deathless. Also I will be seeing him at Bristol Con in October (?) and don’t want to be spoiled.
The Ruthless by Peter Newman – this is the second book in The Deathless series. I know in the past I’ve requested seconds when I hadn’t even read book 1 and ended up disliking the first book and having to read book 2. This is different. Yes I havn’t read book 1 yet and don’t know if I like it. BUT! I have already read stuff by the author and know I like the writing style. I know it might be different but still. Do I need to continue digging here or do you get my drift?
Have you read any of these? What did you think?
What’s on your TBR this month?
