Remember the adorable Orgo from the Orgo Runners books? Well, they’re back, and this time, in a picture book!
I got a glimpse of this book from Hot Key last year, and I’ve been eagerly awaiting my chance to read the full thing ever since!
I jumped at the chance to review Gumiho: Wicked Fox – as a huge fan of mythological creatures and K-drama, it sounded right up my street!
I was so excited for this story of herblore and hidden magic, but I felt pretty let down by the worldbuilding in the end, which was a shame.
Dystopia tends to be the domain of YA fiction, so I was really interested to see how it would work for middle grade readers in The Middler… And the answer is, brilliantly!
I don’t remember exactly when this book hit my radar, but I knew from the minute I heard the title that it was going to be my kind of thing!
I’ve had a slump when it comes to high-tech, space-shippy sci-fi for a few… years. But between Elizabeth Bear’s Ancestral Night and this book, I think I’m a reborn spaceship lover??
By now you can probably guess that if it’s got witches, cats, owls, and atmosphere, it’ll be on my TBR!
This is so late! I can’t believe I totally failed to notice that June had started… Ah well, we can just pretend the 11th counts as the start of the month, right?

Obviously this includes a bit of June as well, but I’m currently up to 218 books read this year, and 60% of the way to my goal, which is quite impressive considering we’re not actually halfway through the year yet… I was very excited to hit 200 books in May, which was dampened slightly by a Twitter altercation with a stranger who decided that I must be lying, or reading Mr Men books, but I was so pleased at the way the blogger community leapt to defend me. I love you guys.
37 books in May is a middling sort of month for me, but tomorrow (June 11th) is my last day at work so I’ll have plenty of time to get over 40 this month! Continue reading “TBR Check In: June 2019”
How could you resist that title?! We all know I’m a sucker for a Regency romance, especially if it involves Scotsmen, so this was a must-read for me!
