It’s been two weeks since my last wrap up.  I posted a monthly round up so thought a weekly wrap up on top of that would have been a bit much.  I’ve had a lovely week.  It was my birthday yesterday and I had a really good day – there was cake (and maybe the odd glass of wine).  Below are two week’s worth of books together with what I’m hoping to read this week.  I’ve been reading a lot of my final SPFBO books.  My sixth round up post is due tomorrow and I will then review  the books I’ve read and choose my finalist to go through to round 2 (should be ready to announce by Saturday 16th if not slightly sooner).

Anyway, hope you all had a good week.

  1. War Witch by Layla Nash
  2. Jack Bloodfist: Fixer by James Jakins
  3. The Cruel Prince by Holly Black
  4. Envy of Angels by Matt Wallace
  5. Today is Too Late by Burke Fitzpatrick
  6.  The Archbishop’s Amulet by Watson Davis
  7. Everwinter by Elizabeth Baxter

    Happy birthday Lynn! Im dying to hear how you liked The Cruel Prince. Once again, I’m in awe of how many books you read every week😊

    • @lynnsbooks

      I’ve not read so many this week – too much going on. The Cruel Prince was great – just what I expected and wanted. Holly Black is so good at writing the fae.

    Happy Birthday, Lynn!!! 😀 Were those cupcakes part of it too? Because WOW ❤

    • @lynnsbooks

      The cupcakes are made by my son’s girlfriends – she’s very good and it’s all just a hobby as she has a full time job too.
      Lynn 😀

  3. Mr and Mrs NW

    Happy Birthday! I’ve just started Mistborn: The Final Empire (or as I like to call the series – The Blue Books).

  4. Mogsy @ BiblioSanctum

    Happy belated birthday, Lynn! Looking forward to the SPFBO results!

    • @lynnsbooks

      Thanks – too much celebrating this past week – and I don’t suppose the socialising is going to let up for the rest of the month with Christmas just round the corner.
      Lynn 😀

  5. Lashaan (Bookidote)

    Happy belated birthday!!! Those cupcakes look delicious and beautiful!! 😀

  6. Barb (boxermommyreads)

    Happy Birthday! Okay, so now I’m really hungry. Great bunch of books and I’m gonna grab War Witch this week after seeing it here. I’m glad you finally read An Envy of Angels – one of my favorite series!

    • @lynnsbooks

      Envy of Angels was great and has definitely convinced me to read all the others.
      Lynn 😀

    Happy Birthday 🙂 Having finished The Shadow Queen by Anne O’Brien and non-fiction Cleopatra by Ernle Bradford, I am now looking forward to starting Christian non-fiction Seeking Allah, Finding Jesus by Nabeel Qureshi and my re-read of The Amber Spyglass by Philip Pullman 😀

    • @lynnsbooks

      I look forward to your forthcoming reviews for those Jessica. Hope you enjoy.
      Lynn 😀

      • jessicabookworm

        Thank you 🙂 And now I’ve broken up for the Christmas break, I will hopefully be able to catch up on my posts and reviews!

    A belated Happy Birthday!!!!!!! 🙂

  9. sjhigbee

    A belated birthday, Lynn:). And my goodness – that cake!!! Marvellous… I love the look of Ever Winter – what a fabulous cover… I hope the coming week is still birthdayish and full of sprinkles and unicorn dander – I’m a great believer in a protracted birthday:)

    • @lynnsbooks

      Yes, I think this week has been a little too full of sprinkles and unicorn dander – I feel like a lazy mare.
      Lynn 😀
