Just a short post to show what you can expect to see reviewed here this coming August. As I will be free on weekends, I´ll be trying to get more page time in, do not see that as a promise though as I know I´ll probably get distracted with other stuff. But these are the books I want to try get through in the coming month:
I am not sure how this comic is compiled together, but so far I have a good reference as to where it all started. I love the lore arround the Judges, I cant even remember some of them being clones of a key figure….
As if the Dredd Origins was not enough, I also got this comic that sets up the history of how the Judges came to be. I have to say, I am pretty happy with what I got here, they go well hand in hand together and I like the politics within this one, not that the Origins compilation lacks in that department (pun intended).
Book 17 in the Horus Heresy, I am flying through this one but it’s only because I have it on Audible. I am quite close to finishing it, but holding off as Jenn is having a hard time finding time to read. But this is a strong contender for favorite Heresy novel so far. Not that The Thoushand Sons will easily be beaten.
As I am close to finishing all three of the above I have an idea to try get some more NetGalley reads in this month. Seeing as I can not seem to get my NG TBR below the 20 book mark (currently lying at 26) and the top two comics of this post being from NG also, I will be looking at some more titles there. Why is my TBR so clogged you might asked and I have a good reasn for this. Originally when Black Library started giving away E ARCs I requested like a maniac. But I never looked at where or in which time frame they were taking place or looked up if they were a second or third in a series, so I kinda shot myself in the foot there. But thanks to the fact that they are all safe and stored on my kindle acc, I do not have pressure to read them as BL puts them up for request. Thus my TBR on there grew a bit chaotic… Well, I am determined to take some more of this list this coming month ( he types as he just received another requested book…).
They look like this:
Book 3 in the series and I have not read what has gone before so I am probly going to be completely lost, but at least I have Dredd Origins pluss another setup book that I will have fresh in my memory.
A zombie manga ( I actually already finished this one but giving it another skim through).
I got this back in 2019 and it is part of Peter Fehervari’s Dark Coil series. As the book before this one was a hit for me I can now finally start on this one, I am exited.
I will probably get stuck again on this one for the rest of the month as I am still not sold on Age of Sigmar. But this book has been on my list for a looooong time. Think it was one of the first I got when I joined NetGalley. It is time I bit down and tried chewing the fat with this one.
Lasty, I never got around to my readthrough of my first ever physical Review Copy that I got some time ago. I would like to get through this as I have just been contacted by the publisher to ask if I am interested in recieving another from them. Would be quite dickish if I kept on saying yes and never reviewed them right?
So there it is. My plans for August. Hope August will treat us all well.
Good day Ya’ll
