My TBR

Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone (Harry Potter, #1) Harry Potter and The Philosopher’s Stone

I’m rereading Harry Potter at the moment as part of a video series I’m doing where I read a chapter a week, listen to a podcast doing the same and post a video about my thoughts on these. My first video for this series will be out on Sunday. Check out my announcement post here.

Falling for a Dancer Falling For A Dancer

I adore this book. It’s set in the 1930’s which is one of my favourite time periods and focuses mainly on home life. The story follows a young woman who becomes pregnant and is married off to a widower in West Cork who has a few kids in need of a mammy. The book is about her life here, going from living in town to a very rural setting, from being free to being responsible for the care of several children and how she tries to find some semblance of happiness and doing something for herself, making decisions for herself.

Magic Bites (Kate Daniels, #1) Magic Bites

This is Book of the Month for one of my Goodreads groups and it works perfectly for the challenge I’m doing in another group plus I loved it the first I read it. So lots of reasons to read this this month. It’s an urban fantasy book about a world where magic and technology are constantly at odds with one another. They kind of sway up and down between being the most powerful force at a time and eventually one of them will rule. When magic is high most technology doesn’t work and vice versa. The series centres on Kate Daniels, a mercenary, who is on the hunt for the murderer of her guardian. This brings into contact with various magical and human factions within the world where she discovers more people are being killed and is pressured by these factions to find the killer. It’s a great introduction to the world and the series just gets better and better.
