I love this time of year, I have to confess, the colours of the trees, the falling leaves, there seems to be a certain scent in the air and the nights start to draw in.  It’s my time of year. I realise it’s not everyone’s favourite time of the year but for me it just feels like the season of promise.  That probably sounds odds because of the cold weather and the shorter days but I love the seasons and Autumn and Winter are my favourites – perhaps because I’m a December child.  Anyway, I thought I’d just get that out of the way because I was feeling all whimsical.  I’ve had a lovely week, I have no grumbles and I hope you all have too.  I’ve already had a monthly round up post so this week my wrap up is purely to look at my potential reads for the next week which will hopefully be:

  1. The Tiger’s Daughter by K Arsenault Rivera
  2. Deadlands by Seanan McGuire
  3. The Crow Garden by Alison Littlewood

A bit ambitious maybe, but lets just see how it goes.

Hope you have a lot of good reading to look forward to.

Let me know what you’re reading.

    Ambitious, but doable! Especially since Boneyard should be quick and fun 🙂

      I hope so, although I usually do try and bite off more than I can chew.

    Best of luck with the reading – The Tiger’s Daughter is a hefty book and I’m looking forward to seeing what you make of it. I’m glad you enjoy this time of year so much, Lynn and wish you have a great week:).

    • @lynnsbooks

      I’m feeling a little daunted by The Tiger’s Daughter – but I’ll get there eventually.

      • sjhigbee

        That said, I found the pages pretty much turned themselves. I enjoyed the writing style very much.

      • @lynnsbooks

        Would you say this one was more a romance than epic fantasy? I’ve heard other reviews say that – I’ve not started it yet but feel a bit turned off if it is more romance.
        Lynn 😀

      • sjhigbee

        Hm… that’s a good question. Their relationship is definitely at the core of the story – but there’s a whole lot that goes on without them as a couple, because they do spend a lot of time apart… It certainly isn’t a typical romance, though there is a slice of that in the story.

      • @lynnsbooks

        Okay, good to know. Thanks
        Lynn 😀

    Anything from S. McGuire is more than welcome, so I can’t wait to read your review!

    • @lynnsbooks

      I can’t wait to read this – and the next Toby book.
      Lynn 😀

    Deadlands looks like a great book for October

    • @lynnsbooks

      My thoughts exactly – hope it’s good, I do like McGuire.
      Lynn 😀

    I love this season, too. I’m having trouble staying inside right now. I hope you have another great week.

    • @lynnsbooks

      It’s just so lovely isn’t it – I even enjoy the chill in the air and crisp mornings.
      I hope you have a great week too.
      Lynn 😀

    I am currently reading Queens of Conquest by Alison Weird and I’ve started a re-read of The Subtle Knife by Philip Pullman. Happy reading this week 🙂
