I started my very first buddy read! Allow me to introduce you to Andrea from Andrea’s Nirvana! She and I are reading A Wild Sheep Chase by Haruki Murakami. We’re still getting the hang of buddy reading which is so much fun, by the way. I love our shared insights, and getting to know each other. I’d recommend checking out her blog and reading her post for Brotherhood Of The World Tag. I loved her answers!
Along with the buddy read, I’m finally getting to read A Game of Thrones by Georger R.R. Martin. Long overdue, I tell you. Skylarking by Kate Mildenhall is one of my backlogged ARC copies whose blurb has been on my mind for a month now, so I decided to tackle it.
LAST WEEK ON THE BLOG
Did you know I’m hosting a giveaway for No Sad Songs by Frank Morelli?
Have you entered?
No? Then, stop reading and go enter right now!
Have you read a book and wished everyone would just read it? That’s how I felt about No Sad Songs. It’s a simple and authentic story about an 18 year old boy who takes on the role of caretaker to his ailing grandfather. The story is witty, full of humour, and emotional. So, do enter!
This week I listed a few reading achievements unrelated to your Goodreads challenge. The purpose of this blog post was inspire people to reflect more on the quality of the books rather than the quantity. And finally, taking a break from some bookish posts and wanting some recommendations, I listed my top five favourite science fiction outside of books!

STACKING THE SHELVES
The above books are new e-ARCs I received!
I’m beyond excited to begin The Zanna Function by Daniel Wheathley. I came across this book through reviews by Avalinahs Books and Scifi & Scary, the latter describing it as a Science Fiction Harry Potter. I love novels which bring a touch of science to their magical elements. I’ve been wanting to read more Middle Grade books, so I can recommend them to kids and The Zanna Function seems like a good place to start!
Then I received Isle of Blood and Stone by Makiia Lucier as part of a blog tour I’m a part of in April. This YA book is an adventure on the open sea with mysterious maps, riddles, and supposedly dead princes who might not be…? Sounds like a fun book to me!
