Time for #SweepUpYourSmols!

Tomorrow marks the start of another round of #SweepUpYourSmols, the sister to my #ConquerAChonker readathon. Where #ConquerAChonker asks you to read a big book (over 450 pages), #SweepUpYourSmols is all about ticking off as many little books (under 300 pages) as you can manage in a weekend! I thought I’d show you the books I’ll be choosing from this weekend – it’s an eclectic mix, with little in common between the books other than their length…

The Shopgirl’s Forbidden Love by Jenni Fletcher

If you’ve been here any time at all you should know Jenni Fletcher is my favourite historical romance author! She was kind enough to send me a copy of her upcoming release to review – the fourth and final book in the Regency Belles of Bath series – and I just had to slide it straight to the top of my TBR! The heroine here has been a wonderful side character in the other books so far, and I can’t wait to see her get a happily ever after too.

Thirteen Guests by J Jefferson Farjeon

This classic crime novel was a birthday present – I love a country house mystery and this one sounds really intriguing! The author was really prolific so I’m hoping that I love this as there’s plenty more where it came from.

Spellstoppers by Cat Gray

This middle grade fantasy is on my May challenge TBR too, so it seemed like a good idea to combine the two and read it this weekend! A summer holiday fantasy mystery I’m really looking forward to.

The First Poems in English trans. Michael Alexander

Another birthday present, and by far the shortest book on the list, but I suspect it will take longer to read, because this is a fairly dense look at poems and poem fragments with analysis between. I might just dip in and out of this, but now’s as good a time as any to start!

Dawnshard by Brandon Sanderson

This side-novella in the Stormlight Archive was sent to me for review, so I’d like to get it read and written up soon! I love the tiny little hardback and I’m really intrigued to see how a briefer adventure in this series will go down, since the main books are so long some of them have been split in two for their paperback release.

So there we go, five shorter books that I’m hoping to get to this weekend – I almost certainly won’t read all of them, but I like to have some choice. If you’re taking part in #SweepUpYourSmols, I’d love to see what you’re reading and know how you’re getting on – most of the chat will be over on Twitter, so join me over there or leave a comment here!

  1. I took “smol” to the rather smaller end of things, and read “Sara” by Garth Ennis (hated it), “Bloom” by Kevin Panetta, “Step Aside, Pops” by Kate Beaton, and “Shoes” by Ryan Jacobsen. As there’s yet time left in Sunday, I might manage a couple more short books from my blog’s review queue.
