Weekly Wrap Up : 11/6/17

So, my reading this week has not been brilliant!  I did complete the Prey of Gods which is absolutely awesome.  And, I’ve also read Borne by Jeff VanderMeer – which is a crazy read – review to follow.

  1. The Court of Broken Knives (Empires of Dust #1)
  2. The Bones of the Earth (Bound Gods #2) by Rachel Dunne

My cover compare this week is The Court of Broken Knives:

Which is your favourite?

How was your week?  What you currently reading?

    Ooohhh, The Court of Broken Knives, gimme gimme gimme!😂 I have to agree, I loved the UK cover for it until I saw the US and the US is just wow!

    Love both of the covers… can’t wait to get my hands on a copy! 😀

    I think I like the first. But I love your selection. I have had The Prey of Gods on my TBR and just added Court of Broken Knives. That sounds so good! Thanks! – Shelly

      I loved Prey of Gods – review to follow soon. Hopefully Court of Broken Knives will be as good.

    Starting to regret passing on Prey of Gods when I was offered a chance to review it! Added to the end-of-the-year catch up list, I suppose! Can’t wait to read your review 🙂

    • @lynnsbooks

      I loved Prey of Gods – it was so original, like in the way that Steinmetz was really original. Nothing like btw – just both really different and compelling.

    Both great books – I got to meet Anna Smith Spark at Fantasycon last year and she’s a really nice person. I prefer the UK cover – I love the colour and drama going on. I hope you enjoy it, Lynn.

    Second cover for sure. Hope that one ends up being a good read.

    Yes, the lonely figure is quite eye-catching, but I also like the cover with the sword and – I noticed on a second or third look – the same kind of sketchy figure in the upper right corner. Quite dramatic… 🙂

    • @lynnsbooks

      I spotted that figure but in a way the first cover felt a little busy for me against the simplicity of the other. I like both to be honest but it always amazes me that the covers can be so dramatically different.

    Reading two books in a week is quite good, it’s hard for me to read more than one per week. 😛 I have heard good thing about Borne and I am very excited about The Prey of Gods!
    I think I actually prefer the cover with the sword, I like the color scheme and the overall design better. ^^

    • @lynnsbooks

      I loved Prey of Gods – so unique. Borne was also very unique and unusual – maybe not a read that everyone will love but I certainly enjoyed it.

    Really pleased to hear you did some great reading last week – I also did some great reading: sweeping quickly through Joanna Hickson’s latest historical fiction First of the Tudors 🙂

    • @lynnsbooks

      That sounds like a read I would find interesting. Hope you enjoyed it.
      Lynn 😀

    I’ll have to check out your review for Bourne… that cover is so attention grabbing!

    • @lynnsbooks

      It’s a very unusual cover isn’t – you just want to keep looking at it to try and figure it out.
      Lynn 😀

    Thank you so much for admiring my covers. I really hope you like the book as much as the covers!

    (For the record, I love both, but the UK cover edges ahead because the painterly, brush stroke quality reminds me the covers for William Golding and Alan Garner. But nobody tell my US book that).

    • @lynnsbooks

      Thanks for stopping by – very unexpected. I do love covers I must admit – but I love what sits between the covers even more – I suppose I just like to highlight that part of the industry. Plus, it all helps to highlight the book to readers and the reason I like to hold the cover compare is because sometimes it helps to reinforce more images in peoples’ minds – because sometimes I read reviews, from a different country (for example) and I have that cover in my mind – if that book then comes out a year later with a different cover I don’t always make the connection.
      I’ve had a very odd week with very little reading and so I’m not as far ahead as I’d like to be -but I’ve just got to about 51/52% – very intriguing and has developed in ways I didn’t imagine.

    I like both covers, can’t decide. I will read Anna’s book pretty soon, but I’m reading everything at a snail speed these days so you will probably beat me to the review!

    • @lynnsbooks

      I’m pretty much reading at a snail speed too at the moment.
      Lynn 😀
