Each week we’ll 5 book featuring the common theme provided. These can be books that we’ve read, or ones that are still on our TBRs. I’ll note beside each one if I’ve read the book yet or not, and provide a link to my review if I have one.

The Mystery Blogger Award

I’ve been catching up on some of the book and blogger tags I’ve fell behind on last year. I always really appriciate the nominations or being tagged, but last year there were times when I just wasn’t in the right mind for blogging.

Anna from Anna’s Book Nook nominated me for this one in August. I’m sorry its taken so long to fill out, but I hope you enjoy reading her questions and my answers. There are some questions from me at the end, if you’d like to answer them and take a shot at this post yourself.

This award was originally created by Okoto @ Okoto Enigma’s Blog.

Readalong: Kushiel’s Dart: Week 01 and 02

Kushiel's Dart: a #WyrdAndWonder Read-along

KUSHIEL’S DART by Jacqueline Carey has been on my radar for a while now. It’s got an average Goodreads rating of over 4 stars and I’ve never seen it mentioned with anything other than good words. However, it’s a beast, clocking in at over 900 pages and that’s always intimidated me.

When Wyrd & Wonder (on Goodreads) announced it as their September 2020 group read, I decied this was just the push I needed. I really enjoyed their readalong of THE GOBLIN EMPEROR earlier in the year.

Top 5 Detective Books

The Top Five Series

This Top 5 series is a weekly meme created by Amanda @ Devouring Books.

Each week we’ll 5 book featuring the common theme provided. These can be books that we’ve read, or ones that are still on our TBRs. I’ll note beside each one if I’ve read the book yet or not, and provide a link to my review if I have one. 

I don’t read huge amounts of actual detective dectective books I’ve realised. Not too many cops and such. I do love my cozy mysteries with bakers-turned-sleuths etc. but I talk about those a fair bit and wanted to look at something else. So this is a top five a-bit-of-everything vaguely detectivey list.
