TBR: May 2019

Words of Radiance (The Stormlight Archives #2) by Brandon Sanderson

After it took me so long to read The Way of Kings I knew I needed a little break between the two, and the The Priory of the Orange Tree arrived, and that break turned into a longer one. But, at long last, it’s time to continue with the series of enormous books, and I feel ready to pick up Words of Radiance, though I doubt I’ll finish al 1,016 pages of it it May. This series is a high fantasy series, following a slave, an Ella Enchanted style assassins, and a girl whose motives are less than honest. I’ve already read 1,000 pages of this series, and I still don’t know how to describe it to you.

Midnight Crossroad (Midnight Texas #1) by Charlaine Harris

This is the first book in an urban fantasy trilogy from the queen who wright us The Sookie Stackhouse Mysteries, or The Southern Vampire Mysteries, or the True Blood stories. Basically the series had a lot of different name, okay? And True Blood is really the heart of my love for vampires. Midnight Crossroad harks back to True Blood with that winning combination of urban fantasy in a small southern town in America. Manfred arrives at the small town of Midnight where everything looks normal but on closer inspection it seems to be anything but, which makes it the perfect place for him to hide his own secrets.

King of Fools (Ace of Shades #2) by Amanda Foody

Ace of Shades was one of my favourite books last year and now the story continues in King of Fools. With an additional perspective we’re back in the City of Sin where, Enne had come to search for her missing mother when she fell in with Levi, a young gang lord. Picking up where the last book left off we are gifted with an additional POV alongside Enne and Levi, which is always very exciting. The events of the end of Ace were pretty insane so I can’t even begin to imagine where this series is going to go next, while also avoiding spoilers for you guys.

I am Heathcliff: Stories Inspired by Wuthering Heights by Kate Moss (Currator)

This is a compilation of around sixteen short stories by a whole slew of different author all of which have been inspired by the immortal Wuthering Heights by Emily Brontë. I don’t tend to read short story collection but I getting interested in the structure of short stories and these ones looked quite interesting. All the stories must be pretty short because the book itself isn’t that long, at least the audio isn’t which is the edition I’ll be reading this month.

I’m also going to read The Near Witch, which I didn’t get to last month, and Stain. Along with a re-read of Forest of a Thousand Lanterns ready for the sequel which is already out.
