Top 5 Tuesday || Series I Haven’t Finished

Top 5 Tuesday banner displaying a hand with five rings

Piggybacking off of two hours ago, we’re sticking to series!

And we’re returning to the part where I reveal how much of my TBR remains unread! In this case, we’re looking at series I haven’t finished. It must be Meeghan @ Meeghan Reads reminding me of all the books waiting on my shelf, judging me hardcore for still not picking me up.

Maybe a little shame is what it takes to see these series through to the end?

Top 5 Tuesday || Series I Want to Start

What am I doing, scrambling the T5T topics?

The truth is, the books I missed in 2020 (which you’ll see later this week) is the topic I missed two weeks ago. And series I want to start? Well, that’s actually last week’s topic! I’m pretty behind, as you can see. Is it embarrassing? Bold? Overly-ambitious? Just a chronic example of what it’s like to be a bookworm?

You be the judge of that (and if you’re a fan, let Meeghan @ Meeghan Reads know, since it was her idea)!

The Races are over. War has begun.

Ashlord and Longhand armies battle for control of the Empire as Dividian rebels do their best to survive the crossfire. This is no longer a game. It’s life or death.

Adrian, Pippa, and Imelda each came out of the Races with questions about their role in the ongoing feud. The deeper they dig, the clearer it is that the hatred between their peoples has an origin point: the gods.

Their secrets are long-buried, but one disgruntled deity is ready to unveil the truth. Every whisper leads back to the underworld. What are the gods hiding there? As the sands of the Empire shift, these heroes will do everything they can to aim their people at the true enemy. But is it already too late?

Astonishingly, I am alive to bring you a Weekly Wrap, instead of lying wraithlike on my couch, sneezing into fistfuls of Kleenex and praying for the chicken noodle soup gods to deliver me from my illness.

Yeah, it’s been a rough couple weeks since I last checked in for a wrap. How did you know?

Lo Denham is used to being on her own. After her parents died, Lo’s sister, Bea, joined The Unity Project, leaving Lo in the care of their great aunt. Thanks to its extensive charitable work and community outreach, The Unity Project has won the hearts and minds of most in the Upstate New York region, but Lo knows there’s more to the group than meets the eye. She’s spent the last six years of her life trying—and failing—to prove it.

When a man shows up at the magazine Lo works for claiming The Unity Project killed his son, Lo sees the perfect opportunity to expose the group and reunite with Bea once and for all. When her investigation puts her in the direct path of its leader, Lev Warren and as Lo delves deeper into The Project, the lives of its members it upends everything she thought she knew about her sister, herself, cults, and the world around her—to the point she can no longer tell what’s real or true. Lo never thought she could afford to believe in Lev Warren . . . but now she doesn’t know if she can afford not to.

Tower Talks || Ikenfell

I know we’ve had it up to here with magical schools lately.

JKR being a TERF has put a pretty solid wrench in any nostalgia we have left. But, there’s good news! Ikenfell exists, and packed into all its pixel charm is a host of diverse characters, a story about handling your feelings even when they hurt, and a series of mechanics that make this game playable even for the newest of gamers!

Are you ready to meet some witches and save their school?

Pub Day Prophecies || January 2021

Pub Day Prophecies banner, depicting a blue crystal ball with yellow sparkles

It seems that history repeats itself. Last year, January’s prophecies were delayed to accommodate the blog’s move to self-hosting. This year, the crystal ball was in the repair shop for longer than expected, something I really should have predicted. But nonetheless, January 2021 has arrived, and with it, a slew of new Pub Day Prophecies to watch out for! 🔮
