August is slowly diminishing, the summer is rolling onwards apace. This has been a busy month for me on a personal level and my reading has slowed somewhat – I’m not experiencing a slump in books more that I just have so many things occupying my time.  Still, I have read a couple of books and I now need to write a few reviews up.

Hope you all had a good week.  Here are my books:

  1. The Curious Affair of the Witch of Wayside Cross by Lisa Tuttle
  2. The Punch Escrow by Tal M. Klein

I’m still reading Naamah’s Blessing by Jacqueline Carey, this is for a readalong that I’m behind for but hoping to catch up soon.  I’m also still listening to Neil Gaiman’s American Gods and loving it.

Next week I’m hoping to read:

  1. Swarm and Steel by Michael R Fletcher
  2. The Word is Murder by Anthony Horowitz
  3. The Turn by Kim Harrison

My cover compare this week is for a book that I’m really looking forward to – very much:

I love the first cover – the colours, the fairytale feel, the tower, everything, but then the second cover is gorgeous too – it reminds me of a beautiful tapestry topped with Christmas icing.  I can’t choose.  What’s your favourite?

How was your week? What you currently reading?

      The Punch Escrow was brilliant. I loved it. The Word is Murder is coming up soon.

    You had a busy week! I can’t wait for your thoughts on The Punch Escrow. And I’m reading Swarm and Steel now and it’s really wild!

    I just finished Jackaby by William Ritter. I loved it far more than I expected to.

    The Word is Murder looks very enticing! And this is the first I hear about it so… THANK YOU!!! 🙂

    You have certainly had a busy August to date. I love both covers of The Girl in the Tower, but I think the left-hand cover just edges it. Hope you’re having a great week, Lynn:)

    • @lynnsbooks

      They really are beautiful covers aren’t they – I can’t wait to read this one. Im so excited I could pop.
      Lynn 😀

        Yes… I’ve got a book that SHOULD be downloading onto my Kindle today that makes me feel the same way:). There’s never been a better time to be a book lover!

    I love the right cover of The Girl in the Tower. It feels like everything wonderful about winter.

    I’ve been a weird reading slump all summer, which somehow turned into a comic book kick. I’m also hate reading that YA novel that tried to buy its way onto the NYT bestsellers list to satisfy my own morbid curiosity.
