GoodReads Monday – 17th August 2020

Goodreads Monday is a weekly meme hosted by Lauren’s Page Turners. To participate, choose a random book from your TBR and show it off! Don’t forget to link back to the creator of the meme, Lauren.

Happy Monday everyone! I though I’d start the week off by highlighting a book on my GoodReads TBR. I currently have 839 book on my Want-To-Read list which I know is endless. However, I feel if I start looking at it regularly I might end up cleaning it up while I scroll through looking for that one book to highlight. So here to a clean-up side affect 😉

This week I dug out Johannes Cabal; the Necromancer by Jonathan L Howard. I do not own a copy of this one, but I was recommended this book after reading and loving Sabriel by Garth Nix as they both contain necromancer magic. It sound very intriguing and potentially funny based on the synopsis and it’s definitely on my TBR 🙂

A charmingly gothic, fiendishly funny Faustian tale about a brilliant scientist who makes a deal with the Devil, twice. 

Johannes Cabal sold his soul years ago in order to learn the laws of necromancy. Now he wants it back. Amused and slightly bored, Satan proposes a little wager: Johannes has to persuade one hundred people to sign over their souls or he will be damned forever. This time for real. Accepting the bargain, Jonathan is given one calendar year and a traveling carnival to complete his task. With little time to waste, Johannes raises a motley crew from the dead and enlists his brother, Horst, a charismatic vampire to help him run his nefarious road show, resulting in mayhem at every turn.

Have you read this? What did you think?

Until next time.
