Weekly Wrap Up : 21/5/17

This week I’ve finished Rotherweird -I enjoyed this but I’m just going to be perfectly frank – this is not a quick read, I’m not saying that because it’s a bad thing, I’m simply stating the fact.  Yes, of course, I’m sure you could skim read it and make it a bit quicker but the pace is not that of a book that you’re going to zip though.  It’s a thinking person’s book.  You need to mull and chew the cud and reflect.  Review to follow.  I’ve also read Andrew Pyper’s The Only Child and hopefully my review for that one will be forthcoming very soon – check out the first couple of sentences here.

Next week I’m hoping to read :

  1. Between The Stars by Anne Corlett
  2. All Good Things by Emma Newman
  3. Skitter by Ezekiel Boone

So, who am I kidding with that three book wishlist! Hey I have to have aspirations and reading three books in a week is about all I can think of at the moment.

And, finally, my cover highlight this week, I’ve gone for the Split World series by Emma Newman:

How was your week?  What you currently reading?

    I’m currently reading Strange the Dreamer and it’s shaping up to be rather good.

      I saw your review for this and glad you loved it. It’s definitely right up at the top of my wishlist.

    I look forward to your review of The Only Child. I’m thinking about reading Skitter this week, too.

    • @lynnsbooks

      The Only Child was interesting, perhaps not quite what I expected but readable – he’s a good author and I liked the tie in aspects with Frankenstein, Dracula and Hyde – there was something that held it back from being a ‘great’ read though. Just reading Skitter – it’s very easy to get on with so far and the pace is almost outrageously fast.

    I love the covers for the Split World series by Emma Newman 🙂 I am currently completely engrossed in My Cousin Rachel by Daphne du Maurier. Happy reading for the week to come!

    • @lynnsbooks

      I love My Cousin Rachel so not surprised you’re engrossed. Look forward to reading your thoughts.

        I’ve just finished it so hopefully won’t be long till I post my full thoughts 🙂

      • @lynnsbooks

        Excellent 😀

    I’ve just finished reading Between the Stars and I look forward to reading what you make of it:). I’ve only read the first of the Emma Newman Split Worlds series – but I’m trying to complete some of the other series I’ve started first before embarking on that one. I’m not sure that Rotherwierd is for me right now – I suspect I’d need more headspace than I’ve currently got to fully appreciate this one. Have a great week, Lynn.

    Very curious on your final verdict for The Only Child. And oops the fifth book of The Split Worlds is already upon us, how fast time flies. I told myself I would catch up with book four before that happened and I’ve been remiss 😛

    • @lynnsbooks

      The Only Child – I feel like I really need to compose my thoughts about that one. I liked it, especially the elements that tied into the Frankenstein/Dracula/Hyde works of fiction, but there was something stopping me from loving it. But, overall, I do think he’s a good author and so it was very ‘readable’.

    I would like to here more about Rotherworld. Looking forward to a review.

    • @lynnsbooks

      I’m so behind with reviews – been away for a week with all the family so made time for reading but not blogging! 😀

  7. Danya @ Fine Print

    I’m very intrigued by your take on Rotherwierd now, Lynn!

    • @lynnsbooks

      I liked it – review to follow. But, I didn’t absolutely love it. It’s really good and made me smile and in fact laugh out loud a couple of times. It’s got it’s own slow pace but I didn’t mind that, i just didn’t totally connect to the characters as much as I would have liked.
      Lynn 😀
