I’ve been away for a couple of weeks, now returned, and I need to catch up with everything.  We went to Malta and look who we found:


Anyway, hope you all had a good week.  July is almost over (unbelievable) and here are my books from last week:

  1. Graveyard Shift by Michael F Haspil – interesting start to series with vampires, changers and a mummy.
  2. Blackwing by Ed McDonald – I loved this

Next week I’m hoping to read:

  1. Princess of Blood by Tom Lloyd
  2. Devil’s Call by J Danielle Dorn
  3. The Clockwork Dynasty by Daniel H Wilson

How was your week? What you currently reading?

    Love the Gollum artwork! I’m looking forward to hearing what you make of the Tom Lloyd book as I enjoyed his writing, but have not kept up with his latest efforts. In the meantime, have a great week, Lynn:)

      Thanks – hope your week so far has been great. I’m reading the Clockwork Dynasty at the moment and loving it.
      Lynn 😀

        This sounds really interesting – we’re talking steampunk, are we?

  2. Bound to Be Me

    I’m one chapter into Immune (Rylee Adamson #2) and I’m already not that interested. I don’t think the timing is right. I’m not sure what book I should start reading..

    • @lynnsbooks

      Ooh, I hate that feeling of not being sure what you fancy reading next. Hope something unexpectedly excellent pops up for you.
      Lynn 😀

        Thanks and OH My GOSH did it ever!! I went to the book store, which I haven’t been to one in years, and bought way too many books!! It almost felt like an addiction. I can’t believe there were so many books that caught my eye. That never happens. But now I’m not sure if I should try finishing the book I started or just give up and start one of the new ones…

      • @lynnsbooks

        Yeah, buying a new selection of books is rather distracting in terms of the book you’re currently reading doesn’t it! Good luck with whatever choice you make and I hope you have happy reading next week.

    Last week, went in a bit of a blur as it was the end of term and the run down to our school summer holidays. However I did manage to finish reading Chris Packham’s memoir Fingers in the Sparkle Jar and Philippa Gregory’s The White Queen. Now I am reading The Lioness and the Spellspinners by, our blogging friend, Cheryl Mahoney.

    I hope you enjoyed your holiday in Malta 🙂

    That Gollum artwork is epic!

    • @lynnsbooks

      It’s amazing isn’t it – and huge – how on earth you can create something like that just defeats me!
      Lynn 😀

    Love the Gollum mural! The cover for Princess of Blood is quite cool and I’ve not heard of it before.

    • @lynnsbooks

      It’s the second in a series that started with Stranger of Tempest.
      The Gollum mural is really good isn’t it.
      Lynn 😀

      • Rebecca

        Ahh darn, another series I don’t have time to catch up on!

      • @lynnsbooks

        Too little time..

  6. Carmen

    Hope you had a great vacation in Malta. Love the Gollum’s street art! Have fun this week reading those books.

    • @lynnsbooks

      I had a great vacation thanks. And so far I’m enjoying the books from my list.
      Lynn 😀

  7. Mogsy @ BiblioSanctum

    I can’t wait for your thoughts on Devil’s Call! And that’s some unbelievable talent in Malta!

    • @lynnsbooks

      I know – it’s an excellent piece of artwork isn’t it. I loved Devil’s Call. My review will be up soon, I’ve been a bit behind as usual after being away!
      Lynn 😀

  8. Book Club Mom

    Hi Lynn and welcome back! I am between books – just finished Madame Bovary and getting ready to choose something fun!

  9. Barb (boxermommyreads)

    I adore Gollum and that’s an awesome picture. I’ve heard wonderful things about Devil’s Call and I’m hoping to pick it up soon myself. Right now I have to get 2 books out of the way for a tour – The Coven and The Thirteenth Gate. Then I may have some time to slip some others in.

    • @lynnsbooks

      Oooh, I will look out for those book reviews. Devil’s Call was excellent – I loved it and my review will be up shortly.
      Lynn 😀

  10. Tammy

    Welcome back! Hope you had a fun trip:-) I just got a copy of The Clockwork Dynasty as well, I’m looking forward to it.

    • @lynnsbooks

      I’m really enjoyed it so far – about a third in – so hope that continues to be the case.
      Lynn 😀

  11. Novelties

    Welcome back! Sounds like you had a great time.

    Wow, the Clockwork Dynasty cover is beautiful.

  12. maddalena@spaceandsorcery

    The pictures of Malta I’ve seen in the past point to a lovely place, so I’m certain you had a great vacation! Despite Gollum’s background hissing… 😀

    • @lynnsbooks

      Haha – I loved finding that Gollum – who knows what you can discover when you root around.
      Lynn 😀

  13. Jennifer | Book Den

    Wow, look at that Gollum! I hope you had a great trip!

    • @lynnsbooks

      I had a lovely time thank you and I was so pleased when I came across Gollum staring down at me from the walls of derelict hotel 😀

  14. imyril

    Welcome back – I hope you had a great trip 🙂

    • @lynnsbooks

      I had a lovely trip and it was very relaxing – in all honesty it was so hot that I couldn’t do anything other than relax!
      Lynn 😀
