 Just a Quick Note!

Hello Everybody!

Fantasy Book Nerd Here!

I thought I would write a quick note of what is going on with the blog this year and tell you about my reading goals and stuff like that.

I know generally at the end of a year there are lists of top whatever put out identifying the highlights of a bloggers reading year. However, you will have noticed a slight absence from me on that part. I think that if you want to see a highlight of my reading year check the blog. 2021 was just too good a year to distinguish my favourite books and whilst I did try to distill the number of good books down to a top whatever, simple fact of the matter was I just couldn't.

Anyways, onto 2022!

This year I am going to be concentrating on completing a big series of books, and for this (as you probably already know) I am going to be reading the Cradle Series. This is a series that I have heard lots about and it is something that I am really interested in.

On top of that, I am joining a number of book challenges and special moths throughout the year. 

First & Foremost, I am joining a reading challenge on Twitter called #BeatTheBacklog which was suggested by fellow blogger, Lisa at OwlBeSatReading which is about shining a light on the books that are already in your collection that you haven't got around to reading yet, and making that little bit of effort to Beat the Backlog. Now, I don't know about you, but I have a substantial pile of books on my Kindle that are just gathering dust and I never seem to get around to them. So, this year, I want to make that effort and try to pull and read some of these books out of their dusty piles and read them and talk about them.

In February, I will be joining Twitter pal Benjamin, who has a fantastic Booktube channel called Leterature & Lofi. During February, he is doing a reading challenge called #FebruarySheWrote, which is all about highlighting women in fantasy, and putting female fantasy storytellers in the spotlight. So, in February the majority of my reading will be from female authors (although I cannot guarantee all, coz I have some ARCS that need reading and the Cradle readthrough!)

In March, I will be joining Sue Bavey at Sue's Musings and a host of other bloggers for March of the Sequels. Again, another reading challenge to read some of those Book 2, 3 4, whatever that I have in my reading piles. As you know, I have started a number of trilogies, and have started the first book, but with demands, it is sometimes difficult to get to the rest of the trilogy. However, with this challenge, I am going to focusing on the sequels of books (with the main ones that I want to read are the rest of the War for the Rose Crown). Again, though, not all will be sequels as I have some ARCS and stuff to read in that month.

Well, that's all folks. See you again soon!


  1. I can't take credit for March of the Sequels, which is going to be awesome. That's the brainchild of Sue.

  2. Wow sounds like a fantastic year of reading! I am also taking part in the beatthebacklog!

Welcome to my website. Hopefully, you are all like minded individuals here and are interested in the fantasy genre. Mostly, I will be reviewing books that I like. It might not always be fantasy, there might be some horror or science fiction.
