June TBR - 2019 - The Fantasy Review

June TBR – 2019

After last month’s successful reading month (see my May Wrap Up – 2019 HERE), it might be difficult to do so well in June – but I will try!

A Dance With Dragons (Part 1 and Part 2) (A Song of Ice and Fire #5) by George R.R. Martin

I read books 3 and 4 last month so only one left to go! After that, I will be waiting along with everyone else for the next one to come out. I will be reading Fire and Blood and The World of Ice and Fire though, so that should keep me satiated for a little while at least.

The Fires of Heaven (The Wheel of Time #5) by Robert Jordan

I am still one third the way through this book. It’s just so slow!! I will try to get through it this month though – even if it kills me.

The rest of the books in this list are only possibilities – I’ll read one of two of them but I like reading whatever I feel like!

The Wise Man’s Fear (The Kingkiller Chronicle #2) by Patrick Rothfuss

I read the first book a while ago and loved it (see the review here) so it is about time I picked up the next one. I think I am finally in the mood for some heavily literary fantasy!

Words of Radiance (The Stormlight Archive #2) by Brandon Sanderson

Book 1 was amazing!!!! (read the review here) so I have to start on the second one soon! It is a big commitment though – it took me six days to read the first on. I’ll get round to it though.

Normal People by Sally Rooney

This is one of those small books that are easy to burn through during the summer holiday so I’m looking forward to reading this one.

What book do you think I should read first? Do you have any suggestions for me to try? Let me know down in the comments!

  1. Those are some really long books you are tackling! I wish I had more patience for books this long these days but my tolerance level for that length has decreased significantly. I don’t mind them- but I really need them to be at least a 4/5 Star read. Otherwise progress is slow and it’s just discouraging.

  2. I know what you mean. I’m currently struggling through the 900+ page Fires of Heaven by Robert Jordan, and as much as I love the series, the book is so long and there is not enough going on for me to want to burn through it.

    Also, I’m happy to tackle some long books at last because I’ve just finished uni and I have some time (finally!) to read some big books! I won’t in a month or so though so I might as well make the most of it.

  3. Go for it!! I never used to shy away from longer books. Some of my favorites clock in at close to a thousand pages… just lately I feel like a book that long would take me a month to read and there are so many other books I might be missing out on!
