Review: Maskerade by Terry Pratchett

Welcome back to the Discworld Project fam! (Yes I typed that and no I don’t know if I will ever say it again.) It has been a bit longer than I thought I would be but I will drop a wee mention of the fact I picked up the next book right after this. This…

Review: Priest of Lies by Peter McLean

***Content warnings for war, death, gore, murder, rape (off and on page), PTSD, child abuse, homophobia, sexual abuse, substance and alcohol abuse, plague, death of a parent, mentions of torture and animal abuse*** So ya know when you’re reading a series that really goes places you know are going to be dark, twisty and highly questionable?…

April Wrap Up

How was everyone’s April? Weird? Busy? Chaotic? Or was that just mine? This was somehow the month where I read the most books but also put down the busiest work/social month so far as well. I don’t know how but I am still blinking in confusion. I went to my first hen night too! That…

Review: Interesting Times by Terry Pratchett

Welcome back to the Discworld Project! I did not mean to take a pause from this for the first quarter of 2022? Here’s the thing though, spoken about me being a mood reader before. I also will not pick up my favourite series unless I am absolutely in the mood for it. Discworld is at…

Review: The Justice of Kings by Richard Swan

**CWs: violence, death, poverty, war, sexual assault, mentions of child abuse, death of a child and a spouse and torture** There’s this very strange part of my brain that routinely likes to bamboozle me. It’s the same part that makes me such a mood reader. I will often thrive on a book that is “vibes”…

Review: The Atlas Six by Olivie Blake

***Content warnings for murder, implied relationship between a tutor and a minor, death of a sibling (off page), coercian, suicide and self harm*** I would like to preface this with the fact I only joined TikTok recently so found out about this from friend’s recommendations. And I am glad I did join since there is…

Reading the Wheel of Time: The Eye of the World

So I have finally done what I thought would both never happen and was impossible to do if it did. I read The Eye of the World and started The Wheel of Time series. I actually had a copy of this as far back as 2018. I picked it up after a boozy brunch with…

Review: Priest of Bones by Peter Mclean

***Content warnings for war, death, gore, murder, rape (off and on page), PTSD, child abuse, homophobia, genital mutilation, sexual abuse, substance and alcohol abuse, plague, death of a parent and torture*** Something that’s becoming more and more obivous about my taste is that I will always root for a morally grey, messy character. I don’t…

A Challenge for 2022: 12 Books from 12 People

Now hear me out, I know I said death to the TBR a year ago. There is however, in my melted brain anyway, a difference between a TBR and recommendations. Very little for sure but there is something easier in it for me to just pick up a book (sooner than later sometimes) someone recommended…

Review: Hogfather by Terry Pratchett

Now this is good timing, the final Discworld post on actual Hogswatch eve! Welcome back to the Disc everyone, two reviews in one month for the first time in a while. In my last review of Soul Music, I mentioned that for the first time I had timed my Discworld reading both continuity and season…
