How could I resist a middle grade tale about dragons and libraries? Well, I couldn’t. This book is just perfect, as if it was written for me, and a whole dragon’s hoard of young bookworms are going to adore it!
How is it April already? As this post goes up I will be in the air on my way to Japan – the husband and I are taking an amazing trip for three weeks! I’ve always, always wanted to visit Japan, so this is a dream come true. Plus, 12 hour flights means a whole lot of reading time, right? Anyway, let’s catch up with the state of my TBR…

Goodreads says 115, but my count is 118, as there’re a few titles that aren’t listed on there yet. March wasn’t my best reading month, as I worked full-time through it, but I still managed 32 books, so I’m still ahead of the game – plenty of time to breathe if I don’t get to read much on our trip.

I love a good romance with a governess character, as I like a heroine who is smart and practical, and governesses have to be able to look after themselves as well as their charges.

I was so excited when I saw Caroline Lawrence was writing a new book, because the Roman Mysteries series was one of my favourites as a kid. Really, they led me to get into Lindsey Davis’ Falco mysteries as a teen, and between the two, they’re responsible for my entire Classics degree. So when I heard about The Time Travel Diaries, I instantly knew I had to read this one!
Oh gosh, Viper was a book I fell in love with from the moment I first saw it. Things I adore on covers are intricate graphic design, metallic foil, and snakes, so this really hit the jackpot for me! Then I realised it was a swashbuckling, piratical adventure with fantasy politics and a kickass heroine, and I was completely sold.
Something a little different for you today – I have an interview with an author! Specifically, RJ Furness, the author of the Orgo Runners books (review here) and its related series, dissent – his new book, Sapphire Smyth and The Shadow Five, is being released in six parts. My interview is part of the blog tour to celebrate the release of Part One: Shadows, and I’m so excited – I love this book!
A story about a fancy cat who wears bowties and has a beautiful library? I had to read this book!
