Another weekly wrap up post.

This week has flown by.  Reading wise I read a couple of books.  Made about 30% progress on another, finished the final instalment of my readalong of Naamah’s Kiss and read the second instalment of Chimes at Midnight for one of my other readalongs (review to follow).

To my books:

Caraval by Stephanie Garber – I’ve completed this one and really enjoyed it.  My review to follow shortly.

Rosewater by Tade Thompson – about 30% into this book – very intriguing so far.

Heartstone by Elle Katharine White.  I really enjoyed this.  A retelling of Pride and Prejudice with dragons and other beasties.  Another book with the review to follow shortly.

 

My reading this week is hopefully going to include:

Dawn Study by Maria V Snyder – hello there!  The final instalment of the Poison Study series.  Oh hell yes.

Deadlight Jack by Mark Onspaugh – because apparently – ‘Worse things than gators lurk in the Louisiana swamp’

Department Zero by Mark Crilley. ‘THE END OF THE UNIVERSE IS ONLY A HOP, SKIP, AND SLIGHT STUMBLE-THROUGH-A-WORMHOLE AWAY’

And, finally, my cover compare this week:

I would say that the middle cover, being similar to the original style, is my favourite, but, in actual fact I have a strange love of this cover:

dawn-study1

Are you looking forward to any of these books?

    I just started Heartstone! All the great reviews so far have gotten me pumped! 🙂

      Ohh, I loved it. Especially talking dragons! Very much a take on pride and prejudice which I suppose some might not like but I thought it was great and really enjoyed reading about Alize and Daired.

    It’s been a great start to 2017 with your reading, Lynn. I love the look of Caraval and Heart Stone, which I need to track down… In the meantime, have a great week:)

    • @lynnsbooks

      Both were really good in totally different ways.
      Hope you have a great week too
      Lynn 😀
