Booking Ahead is an opportunity to glance through my never-ending TBR list/pile and select a few potential reads for the coming month. If I’m not reading books I love talking about books I’d like to read, so this post is a perfect excuse to do just that.
I had another fairly slow paced reading month last month and at my current pace I’ll be lucky to reach the end of Lonesome Dove by the end of this month!
That said, if I do finish it I really fancy reading some Fantasy next and there are a few titles that spring to mind, so, here’s what may end up in my reading pile in June…
Books from the Backlist
Lonesome Dove by Larry McMurtry – I’ve read over half of this now. Hopefully I’ll be able to finish it this month.
The Ten Thousand Doors of January by Alix E. Harrow – I’ve wanted to read this for a while and I’ve seen so many good reviews. Am really looking forward to finally discovering this book for myself.
And, some series beginnings that I like the sound of…
The Invisible Library by Genevieve Cogman – The adventures of a librarian spy, beginning with a visit to an alterative London? Sounds good to me!
Shades of Milk and Honey by Mary Robinette Kowal – A Regency-era tale with added magic.
Just One Damned Thing After Another by Jodi Taylor – ‘Follows a group of tea-soaked disaster magnets as they hurtle their way around History’. That description certainly grabs my attention for this first book in The Chronicles of St. Mary’s.
What are you hoping to read this month? Have you read of my picks, and if so what did you think?
See you again next month for another Booking Ahead.
