Kristine's Taleathon TBR

Okay, so I have a lot of book that should be no this TBR, but I decided to keep it simple, mostly due to the giant book in the pile:
I want to finish Max, Mischa & Tetoffensiven by Johan Harstad, I'm over the halfway point, but have 400 or so pages to go. Then I've got Prudence by Gail Carriger, which I'm also in the middle of. Then I've got Woolf's A Room o One's Own, because I should have read this years ago, and also in April. Rivers of London is the comic book verson of Ben Aaronovtich's Peter Grant and I'm so exited. After that? I don't know. These only tick a few boxes in the challenge and I do want to tick all of them, but I've got some other things in mind if I still have time or decide to take a break from one of these,

Cat's Tale Book discussion of Hounded by Kevin Hearne

April book - House of Small Shadows by Adam Nevill

In april we will be reading House of Small Shadows by Adam Nevill. Why? Because I really love horror and this author and it was my turn to pick this month.

Before I tell you what the book is about, I want to let you know that we did make a video about Magnus Chase and the Sword of Summer, but it was such a mess, so we won't be posting it here.

Catherine's last job ended badly. Corporate bullying at a top television production company saw her fired and forced to leave London, but she was determined to get her life back. A new job and now things look much brighter. Especially when a challenging new project presents itself -- to catalogue the late M H Mason's wildly eccentric cache of antique dolls and puppets. Rarest of all, she'll get to examine his elaborate displays of posed, costumed and preserved animals, depicting scenes from World War I. When Mason's elderly niece invites her to stay at the Red House itself, where she maintains the collection, Catherine can't believe her luck. Until his niece exposes her to the dark message behind her uncle's 'Art'. Catherine tries to concentrate on the job, but M H Mason's damaged visions raise dark shadows from her own past. Shadows she'd hoped had finally been erased. Soon the barriers between reality, sanity and memory start to merge. And some truths seem too terrible to be real ...

Happy reading!
