MY READ OF THE MONTH

Foundryside

Foundryside (The Founders Trilogy #1) by Robert Jackson Bennett. I loved this fantasy read featuring exciting action scenes, great characters, magic, heists and high stakes. I can’t believe this one sat on my TBR list for so long but I’m glad I finally read it and I’m looking forward to the next book.

Beat The Backlist Bingo Progress

BTB-2022-24-Prompts-Bingo

This year Bingo is back with a great collection of prompts.  While my main focus is the 24-prompt card I may choose a few from the 52-prompt list as well (both cards can be viewed here).
I recently posted updated versions of each of the cards for my progress from January to March, which can be viewed over at my Challenge Check-In post.
Here is a collection of covers that fulfill a prompt on either of the cards featured:

OnceandFutureWitches NothingButBlackenedTeeth Buried
WindThroughtheKeyhole MurderisEasy Foundryside

The Once and Future Witches by Alix E. Harrow – A book about siblings
Nothing But Blackened Teeth by Cassandra Khaw – Novella
Buried (DC Jack Warr #1) by Lynda La Plante – One word title
The Wind Through the Keyhole (The Dark Tower #4.5) by Stephen King – Your favourite trope on the page
Murder is Easy (Superintendent Battle #4) by Agatha Christie – Murder, mystery – or both!
Foundryside (The Founders Trilogy #1) by Robert Jackson Bennett – New-to-you author

You can view a recent update of my progress on this bingo card over at my Challenge Check-In post.

Challenge Check-In

January to March 2022

GOODREADS

I’ve read 7 books so far this year.

GOALS

  • I’ve read another of the books I already own.
  • I’ve added two more books to my Beat the Backlist challenge and added them both to my bingo card.
  • I added another book to the Bookforager Picture Prompt Bingo card. I thought I might have added more to this one by now so was pleased to find a place for Foundryside on there.
  • I’m continuing my monthly update posts to record my reading and any challenge progress I’ve made.

So concludes March’s Reading Review. See you again next month.
