TBR Challenge 2019

Wolfsong by T. J. Klune

TBR Challenge 2019

Wolfsong by T. J. Klune

The theme for this month’s TBR Challenge is Backlist Glom (author with more than one book in your TBR.) I chose Wolfsong by T. J. Klune. This is a difficult review to write because while there were things I liked about this book, there were also things I really did not like. It was an interesting spin on werewolf shifters, with a bit of M/M romance thrown in, but I found myself disappointed overall. (There are lots of rave reviews of this on Goodreads, so your mileage my vary, but I did not enjoy it as much as those reviewers did.)

I had heard some positive buzz about the book at the time the book was published in 2016, so when I saw a deal price on this book last year I bought it and it entered my ever towering TBR list. I picked this book out of the digital pile

Review:   Victoria by Daisy Goodwin

Review:   Victoria by Daisy Goodwin

Daisy Goodwin, the author of the book Victoria, is also the creator and writer of the television series Victoria. From what I understand, this book covers most of the same material that is shown in the first season of the television show. I myself have not seen it (which in the U.S. is shown as part of Masterpiece on PBS), but I did very much enjoy the 2009 movie The Young Victoria, starring Emily Blunt. When I saw
