I thought for a second it was double-booked again like Children of Time this month and last month, but I don't see it unless it's newly scheduled and hasn't been updated yet... White Hot is in May and Wildfire is in June...


Em Lost In Books (emlostinbooks) | 2317 comments looks like i was dreaming and checked the master list. it's in April. :)


message 8: by Timelord Iain (new)

Timelord Iain | 14886 comments I've been meaning to read the Bobiverse books

Siobhan (poi5ongirl) | 7583 comments Buddy Reads:
2nd - King of Thorns
5th - Blood of Tyrants
5th - Obsidio
10th - The Way of Kings
27th - Best Served Cold

Also hoping to fit in Crooked Kingdom but not holding my breath.

And I want to read Heart-Shaped Box for my 'bookends challenge', haven't really made any progress with that bit of my overflowing bookshelf.

If you can squeeze it in your current schedule, we can have a BR too :)

Just pick a date that's best for you and I'll be there... looks like the end of the month is best for me... the Bookburners listings are 40-50 pages, but Kushiel's Scion and Way of Kings are long ones...

I actually prefer mid-month but since you'll much faster than me, and I will be listening to audio anyway (which will take longer time) I think I can start earlier then you follow at the end of the month. What do you think?


message 18: by Timelord Iain (new)

Timelord Iain | 14886 comments Sounds good... I jump in once you've made some progress... have some spoilers lined up for me to comment on...

Hailee | 2423 comments Here is my TBR for April:

description

I may also be reading The Power if I get time but that was a last minute addition.

Some of these are buddy reads with this group but I am taking part in a Harry Potter themed readathon from 2nd-29th April so although I've managed to fit my buddy reads to some of the challenges and I've had to pick some more books to fit others. I don't know quite how many I'll get through though.


Saar The Book owl | 1899 comments What I'm planning to read and hopefully finish (it has been a bad start for BR's so far. Just finished 1 or 2):
The Riven Kingdom
The Twelve
Assassin's Apprentice
The Penelopiad

What I really want to finish first:
The Passage
Empress of Mijak
