TBR – September

Currently Reading

The Dark Blood – by A.J. Smith (The Long War #2)

A book I’ve had my eye on for a while ever since finishing The Black Guard. Which I… didn’t really care for, actually. But after posting my review of #1, A.J. Smith contacted me saying he was sorry I didn’t like the book and hoping I’d give it another try in the future. So, here we are! Hope it’s good!

So far a pretty good year for the TBR pile! Hopefully I’ll get through a dozen or so by year’s end. I’ve been paying pretty close attention to it, though, as it’s been stacking up really bad in recent years.

Btw dunno who started the trend of posting the TBR, but I came upon it at Niki Hawkes’ site.
