What's on the TBR pile?

What’s on the reading pile? 30/03/2020

Well, I’ve got some good news and bad news. The bad news is, I’ve come down with an illness. I don’t quite know what it is because there’s no fever but with a cough and a swollen throat that has me sounding like a plague victim, I’ve made the decision to not leave the house for any reason.

The good news is, I’ve made the decision to not leave the house for any reason! Finally, I’ve got loads of time to read, write and play some Civilizations VI. (Just discovered it, what a game!)

There’s no way to know if this illness is COVID-19 or not and at the moment, it’s quite mild. But I would be mortified to go out in public with any symptoms whether it’s COVID-19 or not, just in case it is. Here in the UK, we’re still on lockdown and getting specific advice is pretty difficult at the moment because of all the panic and the closure of all the doctor’s surgeries. All I can do is wait this out and try and stay isolated.

Anyway, let’s focus on the good news! Thanks to a whole host of generous authors who are offering their books for free on the Quarantine Relief Books from Authors to Readers group on Facebook, my e-reader is loaded. A huge thank you to all the authors who have donated their books during this pandemic, you are all heroes in your own right!

One of the books that is on my TBR pile this week is another book by Kim Petersen:

Promises made by the undead remained undead.

A mysterious prophecy has come to pass with the arrival of a newborn baby.

The survival of the vampire clan is now threatened with the rebirth of a long-buried species. The Lygarou have reawakened with an unquenchable thirst for blood.

The next full moon is looming and Jett has no choice but to face the reckoning. He must find and kill the wolf-mother and her baby before his sire destroys the only person remaining in his life worth living for.

But when Jett unearths the truth about the Lygarou bloodlines, he is forced to face a choice that will forever altar the future and question his loyalty toward the clan.

Can Jett risk all that matters to him on a future paved with uncertainty? Or will his loyalty to the clan prevail?

I read and reviewed one of Kim Petersen’s books Blood Legend: Undead a few weeks back and loved it, so I was especially glad when Kim asked me to review the next book in the series, Blood Legend: Rebirth.

This book is apparently only a little longer than the first but I hope it’s just as captivating. Kim Petersen writes short, impactful and highly emotive books and she is about as afraid as George R.R. Martin to kill people in her books. With any luck, another short but enjoyable read will put me back on track to getting ahead of schedule (if that makes sense).

I’m still not entirely finished with the list from my inbox but with what I have left and the new haul of books, I should be good for at least two months, maybe longer!

Even though I’m a bit under the weather right now, I’m going to use my time wisely and get plenty of reading done. In the meantime, stay safe and don’t take any unnecessary risks. Your life is too important!

Thanks for reading!

  1. Your cough and sore throat sounds similar to my daughters. She’s been in isolation for coming on a week. Not a glimmer of fever but, alas, we know that could change. Hurry the day when you don’t need to be rushed into hospital, critical before you get a test.
    I wish you well 🙂

      1. Still has a cough, but everything else back to normal. She’s now on her 6th day. I shan’t be easeful until she passes that crucial 7th day
        I hope yours doesn’t bode ill.
