This has been a very busy month indeed.  I hope you’ve all had a good July – I certainly hope you’ve had more sunshine than we have – although in fairness I did go to sunny Malta for two weeks so I can’t grumble.  Anyway, this month I’ve managed to read 11 books – I missed a couple off my covers post so I’ve updated it now – can’t miss Spoonbenders and Graveyard Shift off now can I:

Books read: 

  1. How to Flirt with a Naked Werewolf by Molly Harper
  2. Phantom Pains by Mishell Baker
  3. A Kiss Before Doomsday by Laurence MacNaughton
  4. Darien by C F Iggulden
  5. Meddling Kids by Edgar Cantero
  6. Godblind by Anna Stephens
  7. Blackwing by Ed McDonald
  8. Spoonbenders by Daryl Gregory
  9. Graveyard Shift by Michael F Haspil
  10. Devil’s Call J Danielle Dorn – review to follow
  11. The Clockwork Dynasty by Daniel H Wilson – review to follow

My covers are here.

I’ve had some really good reads looking back at this list – Spoonbenders was a wonderfully excellent surprise, Devil’s Call I loved and The Clockwork Dynasty was also really good.  Blackwing by Ed McDonald stole the show a little bit for me I must admit.

    I’m curious about Spoonbenders.

    • @lynnsbooks

      Spoonbenders was so good – I really didn’t know what to expect but it was just such a clever combination, a strange family of psychics, the mob and a complex storyline that comes together really beautifully. It’s just so good.

    Looks like you had a great month! I’m curious to see how you liked The Clockwork Dynasty, I’ll be reading that one soon.

  3. Mogsy @ BiblioSanctum

    Another month gone, where does the time go! You are so lucky to get A Pocketful of Crows! I hope that gets a US release soon. I’m also glad to see you snagged a copy of Stillhouse Lake – that was a fun one!

    • @lynnsbooks

      Yeah, I’ve finished it – very readable indeed.

    The Clockwork dynasty is one of the titles I’m most curious about, so I can’t wait for your review! 🙂

    I love the look of The Clockwork Dynasty – and thanks to you I managed to get hold of Spoonbenders, which I thoroughly enjoyed:). I have also just finished Artemis, which I LOVED. This is an excellent month’s reading and I’m glad you had a lovely time in Malta. I hope that August proves to be another awesome month, Lynn:)

    So pleased to see even though you were busy, you’ve still managed to read so much, although I’m sure two weeks in the sun helped 🙂 I must admit I was very tempted to request Artemis by Andy Weir and A Pocketful of Crows by Joanne M Harris, but thinking about my large review TBR I have managed to resist…so far anyway! My July was a quieter and calmer month for me, which gave a bit more time for reading, cooking and adaptation watching 🙂

    • @lynnsbooks

      Yep, being away for two weeks definitely helped give me more time to read. I’m really looking forward to Andy Weir and Joanne Harris, I am trying to cut down on requesting review books but those two I simply couldn’t resist.
