How was your week? I got murderred again — this time by Harrow the Ninth. Expect the review on Friday!
#5OnMyTBR is a bookish meme hosted by E. @ Local Bee Hunter’s Nook (me!) and you can learn more about it here or in the post announcing it. It occurs every Monday when we post about 5 books on our TBR.
This week’s prompt is Red Cover!
Another colour prompt! Actually, I learned that I don’t have that many red books on my TBR (especially if I want to keep it autumn-y for some reason) so this one wasn’t easy!!
|| The Rules and Regulations for Mediating Myths & Magic by F.T. Lukens||
💛 paranormal mystery (sort of?)
This one is on my list of paranormal mysteries to read in preparation for a special post I’m working on so hopefully I’ll get to it soon!
It’s a funny story about a boy who wants to earn money for college getting tangled up with magical shit (and also maybe trying to get a cute boyfriend).
(Also, I have the eARC of the 2nd book because I requested it not knowing it’s a series so hopefully I’ll get to review it.)
|| Witches of Ash and Ruin by E. Latimer ||
💛 mental health
This is the season of the witch~~ ♪♬♩♫
I’m still in autumn vibes so I can’t wait to read more about witches. Queer witches specifically.
Celtic mythology + contemporary Ireland + murder mystery + sapphic witches = I’m intrigued.
|| The Perfect Assassin by K.A. Doore ||
💛 reluctant assassin
💛 murder mystery
All I know is that it’s gay and has assassins lol.
But the reluctant assassin vs. the perfect assassin seems fun.
Just read a review and apparently it’s a desert fantasy but also there’s a city built in the sky? And magic system is tied to water?
Hmm, that sounds interesting!!
|| These Feathered Flames by Alexandra Overy ||
💛 Russian folktale retelling
This isn’t out until 2021 actually but I’m running low on red covers and it sounds interesting.
Also! Slavic rep! Always love to read about my fellow Slavs.
So, when their mother dies, the twin who learned to be the future queen and the twin who learned to be magic must work together to uncover the murderer. NICE!
|| Bound to the Monarchs by Brooke Winters ||
While I’m usually reluctant to read books with ‘mates’ (mostly because this word is weird) this one sounds interesting and I want to read more poly books.
If that makes me a furry, so be it ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
Wow, that was a fun bunch. Any requests as to what the next colour we do should be? Next colour prompt will be in November if that helps.
- Do you participate in #5OnMyTBR?
- Do you have any of those on your TBR?
- Have you read them maybe? (Make me read them then!!)
