My first official bookhaul of 2022, courtesy of MySciFiClub. Both December and January's box came on the same day, so more books for me!! Soon it will be time for another #bookbuyingdiet to slim out the shelves, but I'll save that for February.

Since yesterday was my 58th birthday, of course I had to add more books to my ever growing #tbrmountain. I have a feeling it's about time for another #bookbuyingdiet round before the start of 2022.

MoonWitch94 Football 🏈 definitely means Fall! What are you planning on getting to break the book diet? 😉Thanks for playing 🌻📖🍁 5mo
RamsFan1963 @MoonWitch94 I've already broken the diet, I bought 5 books last week and 3 books today. I read 13 off my TBR shelves, so I'm still ahead by 5 lol 5mo

I fell off the wagon today. I was in the used book store and there were just too many good books to pass up. I did make it to 13 books of the 20 I planned for my #bookbuyingdiet , and only bought 5 today, so I have chipped a little off #tbrmountain.

Ruthiella A little backsliding can happen! 5mo

Forget the Daleks, the Cybermen, the Soltarians, the Slitheen or even The Silence. The most terrifying Doctor Who foes are The Weeping Angels, who use time itself as a weapon. Imagine facing something that will kill you if you even blink for a moment. 4 🕚🕚🕚🕚

peanutnine What a terrifying cover! I agree, the weeping angels are the worst 😰 5mo
Traci1 They are definitely the scariest. 5mo
Mrs_B Yep. So so scary. 5mo

Mehso-so

Considering the title, and the cover art, you'd think this book was about Vader and the Emperor. Sadly, you'd be wrong. Yes they play a part in the story, but it's more about the freedom fighters of Ryloth and their attempt to kill off the two heads of the Empire. Not a awful book, just kind of meh and misleading. I wanted more Vader. 3 🧐🧐🧐

A dark and depressing book, definitely not for people who want a happy ending. Almost no character gets out of this either alive or unscathed. With the recent UN report on climate change, this book is very relevant. 4 💥💥💥💥

Andrew65 Great 👏👏👏 6mo
Butterfinger Do you think the Grahamites were Billy Graham followers? 6mo
RamsFan1963 @Butterfinger I wondered about that. I don't think so much Billy Graham's religious views, more like his son BG Jr who is very homophobic, anti LGBTQ and a racist to boot. 6mo
Butterfinger Makes much more sense. Thanks. 6mo
Reggie You had me at dark and depressing and climate change. Stacked. 6mo

1. I planned to read 125 books this year. I'm currently at 82, so the goal is still obtainable. I'm also doing #LitsyAtoZ.
2. Read off my TBR so I can finish #bookbuyingdiet
3. I'm grateful I'm off work this weekend. I haven't had a full weekend off since April.

The Brega Path | Dennis L. McKiernan

Book 2 of The Silver Call Duology.

I'm not sure why they divided this into two books, only 419 total pages, but the second part is more action oriented. The band (fellowship?) is separated and fights the spawn in the dwarven mineholt of Kraggen-Cor. It's very Tolkien derivative, but a fun quest adventure. 4 ⚔⚔⚔⚔
10/20 #bookbuyingdiet (Woo Hoo!! Half way finished!!)

Book 1 of The Silver Call Duology

If you like a Tolkienque adventure, I recommend this and all the books that take place in Mithgar. Dwarves, Men and Warrows (this world's version of Hobbits) fight together to remove the evil spawn from the dwarven holt, Kraggen-Cor.
