A quick wrap up – I’ve been away for the past week with family and so behind with blogging.  I have mostly managed to read the books I set out to read in my wrap up last week but all this has really done is make me further behind with reviews.  So, some catching up is in order.

Also, although this is a book blog, I must make a quick heart felt mention for the victims and their families after this week’s terrible terrorist attack in Manchester.  I really feel for you all.  It’s just so very sad and incomprehensible.

  1. Between The Stars by Anne Corlett
  2. All Good Things by Emma Newman
  3. Skitter by Ezekiel Boone – still reading this but I imagine it will be complete by this evening so I’m including it on here.

Next week I’m hoping to read:

compared with:

I think both sets are really good but I love the top set – the colours are just so dramatic and eye catching.  Which is your favourite?

How was your week?  What you currently reading?

    Definitely the top set of covers for The Falconer trilogy is more fetching. Enjoy your reads next week, Lynn.

      Thanks Carmen – I really hope the Falconer series is going to end well.
      Lynn 😀

    Yes – I agree that the top set of covers are particularly wonderful, though I also like the 2nd set. I’m REALLY looking forward to getting hold of The Fallen Kingdom when it is released as this is one of the outstanding series of the year to date, as far as I’m concerned. Have a great week, Lynn. And I echo your shock and sadness at the horrible events in Manchester…

    • @lynnsbooks

      I hope the Fallen Kingdom is is a great ending to series. Hopefully I’ll start it tomorrow. 😀

        Looking forward to reading what you think of this one, Lynn:)

    Looking forward to your reviews! Making me quite envious as those three books are on my list for this month but I am nowhere close to being caught up. And I don’t know why but I’ve always liked the UK covers for the Falconer series. I even went out of my way to buy those editions from Book Depository, they’re just so pretty.

    My heart and thoughts go out to Manchester as well, so heartbreaking. Those poor concert goers and innocent children…

      I’m trying to get a bit ahead of my schedule – I’m nearly managing it but I’m sure I’ll probably slip behind again soon. I like the UK covers and I remember you saying that you’d specifically bought them – I think both of them have things that I love – I love the red hair of the US covers, it seems to fit with the protagonist and I love the striking difference of the reds and blues. What I like about the UK books is the stance of the model on the covers – she seems a bit more proactive, or maybe just less meek than the US versions and I like the fact that she seems to be wearing pants as well.
      Lynn 😀

    I agree I like the top set better due to the contrast between the woman and her background and also awesome use of colors.

    I definitely prefer the first set of covers for the Falconer Trilogy, because of the woman with the striking red hair. Last week, was good for me: I finished reading My Cousin Rachel by Daphne du Maurier and I am very close to finishing Class of ’59 by John A Heldt. I am ready to start my 10 Books of Summer reading now 🙂

    • @lynnsbooks

      Excellent – I look forward to your reviews for those.
      Lynn 😀
