Turtles All the Way Down

Turtles All the Way DownSixteen-year-old Aza never intended to pursue the mystery of fugitive billionaire Russell Pickett, but there’s a hundred-thousand-dollar reward at stake and her Best and Most Fearless Friend, Daisy, is eager to investigate. So together, they navigate the short distance and broad divides that separate them from Russell Pickett’s son, Davis.

Aza is trying. She is trying to be a good daughter, a good friend, a good student, and maybe even a good detective, while also living within the ever-tightening spiral of her own thoughts.

Cosmo Readathon Wrap Up

cosmoreaders

Round 2 of Cosmo Readathon is finished! This readathon ran from the 19th March to the 25th March. The Goodreads is here and the twitter is here. This readathon is good because there was a lot of discussion on Goodreads during it (though I manage to miss it right at the start of this readathon).

I didn’t manage to get to all of the challenges but I did enjoy the three books I read for this readathon.

Top Ten Books That Take Place in Another Country

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly blog meme. It used to be hosted by The Broke and the Bookish but now it is being hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. This week’s theme is books that are set in a different country to where you are. I live in the UK so technically I could list every book set in America/Canada but I managed only to pick one which was set all in the United States. I tried to go for books I read in 2018 as well, though the last two are old favourites of mine rather than new reads.

Covers link to Goodreads.

  • Captain Marvel – Read a new release that has grabbed your attention!

Marriage of Necessity

A Marriage of Necessity: Rules of Refinement Book Four (The Marriage Maker 8)He offered one night. She needs a lifetime…

When Viscountess Kinsley’s father lost all but their home and then drank himself to death, creditors stood ready to seize what remained. Anne’s only hope of saving her family is to find a husband through Lady Peddington’s School for Young Ladies. Only, upon graduation, Anne finds herself the victim of jealous gossip that claims she seeks multiple lovers. Now, no respectable man will have her.

Kennedy Douglas, Viscount Buchanan, has refused to marry—until his terminally ill father threatens to marry Kennedy’s younger sister to a known wife-beater unless Kennedy immediately weds and produces an heir. The man known as The Marriage Maker matches Kennedy with the ravishing Viscountess Kinsely, but time is running out. Kennedy’s father is declining rapidly, and he’s the only one who knows where Kennedy’s sister is being held against her will.

Oops-a-thon

Finally a readathon set just for me! This oopsathon is all about getting to books this quarter that were on your readathon TBR in the last quarter that you didn’t get around to. Now anyone who has been on my blog for longer than a week knows I take part in a lot of readathons and don’t normally get to every book on my TBR. This year I have been keeping track of all my readathon TBRs and which books I’ve read and which books I haven’t.

There are 55 books which I have had on my readathon TBRs which I haven’t gotten around to in the last three months – I am not going to be able to read all those books in a week. It’s absolutely not possible (not even if I went without sleeping the whole week) so I’ll be narrowing it down.

This readathon runs from the 25th March to 31st March and the intro post is here.
