Well, this week my reading has taken an upward turn, which is good of course, after last week. What can you do – book hangovers!  But, this week.  This week people.  Such a lot of good reads.  Good.  Reads.

Last week’s reads:

  • The Ninth Rain by Jen Williams
  • Miranda and Caliban by Jacqueline Carey
  • The Valiant by Lesley Livingston
  • The Winter Long by Seanan McGuire (readalong week 2)

Woah – do all those covers look good together or what!!!

Currently reading:

  1. Blood Upon the Sand by Bradley P Beaulieu
  2. Windsinger by AFE Smith
  3. Game of Shadows by Erika Lewis

And, finally, my cover compare this week: normally I compare two of the same covers this week however, there seems to be a lot of blue(ish) covers going on so I’m going to pick my favourite from the covers above:

My favourite cover is this one:

ninth-rain

I really like this cover – the font and the colours.

How was your week?  What you currently reading?

    Nice wrap-up! The Valiant is on my list of things to read and I hope you enjoy Beaulieu’s newest installment.

    • @lynnsbooks

      I loved The Valiant. Really good. Beaulieu is also good, about 50% through at the moment

    I paused With Blood Upon the Sand while I read the new Robin Hobb, but I’ll be back to it soon.

    • @lynnsbooks

      Yeah, I’ve paused with it – I need to catch up with some other books and it was making for fairly slow reading for some reason. I’ll pick it back up soon though. I was enjoying it but just seemed to be making a meal of it somehow.

    Wow do I miss reading four books in a week. Impressive reading week indeed.

    • @lynnsbooks

      Well, one of those is a readalong book so it’s read in stages! Of course I’m now behind with reviews … but them’s the deal!
      Lynn 😀

    I REALLY wish I could read 4 books in a week. How do you do that? I had a really slow reading week but hopefully this week will be better:-)

    • @lynnsbooks

      Well, the fourth book is a readalong book so I only read a third each week. But, yeah, this week was better in terms of my reading.
      Lynn 😀

  7. Mogsy @ BiblioSanctum

    AHHH, don’t leave me hanging, what did you think of The Valiant? Well, I guess you said the whole week was good, so that’s a good sign? 🙂

    • @lynnsbooks

      I thought it was excellent – I couldn’t put it down!

    • @lynnsbooks

      And, OMG – I loved Fallon! And, a second book is in the offing so that’s really exciting.

  8. Lisa (@TenaciousReader)

    That is a great reading week! That’s like, my entire January! I’m going to be starting Game of Shadows soon. 🙂

    • @lynnsbooks

      The start of February was very slow. I don’t know why but Blood Upon the Sand just slowed me down for some reason. I’ve had to put it down for a little while. I’ll pick it back up again shortly.

    I am pleased to hear you’re over your book hangover and have enjoyed so many good books over the last week. I have recently finished the wonderful A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens and I am currently gripped by The Butterfly Summer by Harriet Evans. Happy reading!

    • @lynnsbooks

      I look forward to your reviews – did you enjoy the Dickens – people usually rave about A Tale of Two Cities but I haven’t read it.
      Lynn 😀

      • jessicabookworm

        A Tale of Two Cities was great – I will hopefully have my post on it up soon 🙂

    Wow – what a wonderful reading week you’ve just had… Jen Williams book is one I haven’t yet had the pleasure of reading – and as well as that one, you also read ‘Miranda and Caliban’… I’m very much looking forward to hearing how you got on with it.

    • @lynnsbooks

      I did have a good week – I enjoyed Miranda and Caliban (a bit bitter sweet) but good and review to follow. Jen Williams I really enjoyed.
      Lynn 😀

      • sjhigbee

        It certainly is bittersweet, but very beautiful – I really loved it. I must get hold of the Jen Williams, though.

    Great collection, Lynn.

    Waiting for your reviews on The Ninth Rain and Miranda and Caliban. The SFFWorld posted a great one on The Ninth Rain and I have that book on my TBR since then.

    Your review of The Valiant was as compelling as you say the book is. Going to get it once I am done with the sci-fi bunch I have.

    • @lynnsbooks

      Sorry, didn’t see your comment, it went into spam for some reason! thanks for stopping by. The Ninth Rain, Miranda and Caliban and The Valiant were all great – and all worth reading. I have to give a special shout out for The Valiant though – it was such an unexpected page turner.
      Lynn 😀

      • Anindita@A Bohemian Mind at Work

        Lol. I just rejected a suspicious email that asked me to pay for a spam cleaning tool for my blog. The Lords of spamming might be seeking vengeance. Going to get The Valiant. Thanks for the recommendation.
        Ani.

      • @lynnsbooks

        Ohh, I hope you enjoy it! 😀
