Weekly wrap up 22/1/17
So, another Sunday where I look back over the past week with a weekly wrap up post. I went to see LaLa Land last week – and I loved it – I would go and see it again without hesitation. It has a lovely old style musical charm to it, is beautifully shot and for a modern day film there is no swearing sex or violence – it doesn’t always feel easy to find a film like that these days and it was a lovely refreshing change!
Reading wise I finished a couple of my books and started the third one. I read the third instalment of Chimes at Midnight which I’m loving. I have three reviews to catch up with at this point.
Last week’s reads:
Dawn Study by Maria V Snyder. Fans of this series, I think, will love the way this concludes. A definite 4* end to series I thought. Review to follow shortly.
Department Zero – a crazy story with plenty of non-stop action. The start scared the bejesus out out of me with the spiders! Feels like Lovecraft meets the Men in Black. Highly entertaining. Review to follow shortly.
Deadlight Jack by Mark Onspaugh – I’ve just started this one. The start was very curious indeed and really drew me in – I have that certain feeling – the one you have when you really feel like you’re going to enjoy a book!
Next week I’m hoping to complete:
- The Grey Bastards, which is my SPFBO book – this is receiving some very favourable reviews and I’m really looking forward to picking it up.
- The Black Wolves of Boston by Wen Spencer – urban fantasy and evil Wickers – how could I resist?? Sounds amazing.
I also need to complete Rosewater – which I made a good start on at about 30% and am looking forward to getting back to.
And, finally, my cover compare this week:
I can see the reasoning for the grey cover with the stylised dragon on it but it isn’t as colourfully dramatic as the first. My choice this week:
Which is your favourite – and what are you currently reading?
