I have some time off work which I want to use to focus on my writing and my reading too. So I thought I would set out some goals for this week and a small TBR for my time off.
I am still working on my plans for Nanowrimo. I am around 40% of the way through my Sci-Fi Mystery and I have a couple of Ideas I want to develop out that I might switch to working on during Nano. So this week I would like to finish off the two set pieces I have in mind for my Sci-Fi Mystery and then attempt to start plotting out my Time-slide idea. This will probably mean a few hours a day of writing but I am not going to push myself too hard as Nanowrimo is always a bit of a hard slog and I want to let myself relax before that too.
I have two books on my TBR for this week.
The Atlas Paradox
The Atlas Six #2
Blog Tour: 26/10/2022
About the book:
Six magicians. Two rivalries. One researcher. And a man who can walk through dreams. All must pick a side: do they wish to preserve the world—or destroy it? In this electric sequel to the viral sensation, The Atlas Six, the society of Alexandrians is revealed for what it is: a secret society with raw, world-changing power, headed by a man whose plans to change life as we know it are already under way. But the cost of knowledge is steep, and as the price of power demands each character choose a side, which alliances will hold and which will see their enmity deepen?”
I am lucky to have received a physical ARC of this one and to be participating in the Black Crow PR Blog Tour. I have started this one and I am hoping to sit down this evening to finish it so I can get my review written up in a timely manner. So far I am actually enjoying this one a bit more than the first in the series.
The Decagon House Murders
House Murders #1
About the book:
The members of a university mystery club decide to visit an island which was the site of a grisly, unsolved multiple murder the year before. They’re looking forward to investigating the crime, putting their passion for solving mysteries to practical use, but before long there is a fresh murder, and soon the club-members realise they are being picked off one-by-one. The remaining amateur sleuths will have to use all of their murder-mystery expertise to find the killer before they end up dead too.
This is a playful, loving and fiendishly plotted homage to the best of golden age crime. It will delight any mystery fan looking to put their little grey cells to use.
I am in a real murder mystery mood and I have been wanting to get to this one for a while. I am in a real cuddle up in a blanket and read sort of mood and this seems perfect for that.
