Weekly Wrap Up : 07/01/18

This is my first weekly wrap up of the year.  If you celebrate Christmas I hope you had a lovely time and Happy New Year to all of you.

During the past week I’ve read only one book but I’m also part way through a couple of others.  I’ve posted a list of my favourite books of 2017.  I’ve also listed ten ‘must read‘ books from last year and also written a post about the next stage of the Self Published Fantasy Blog Off competition.  So, not too much on the reading front but I’ve been catching up from a very lazy blogging month during December.

My last book of 2017 and first book of 2018 have worked out really well.  John Gwynne’s A Time of Dread was my last book of the year and it was fantastic.  My review will follow soon.  My first book this year was Tyrell Johnson’s debut The Wolves of Winter.  I hope the rest of my reads continue on such a good streak.  I’m also currently reading Anthony Ryan’s The Waking Fire as part of the Fantasy Hive’s reading club (check out the books for the rest of the year here), The Chrysalids by John Wyndham (as part of both Vintage Sci Fi and the Sci Fi Experience links to details can be found in this post).  These books are going to be chilled reads that I aim to complete by the end of the month.

Books read:

  1. Wolves of Winter by Tyrell Johnson

    This week I plan on reading Moonlight Sins by Jennifer L. Armentrout and Into The Drowning Deep by Mira Grant!
    Can’t wait to read your review of The Wolves of Winter. I also read and loved it.

      I really enjoyed it. I thought Lynn was great and I loved the setting. There were a number of familiar elements but I thought the focus was different as usually post apocalyptic books are all about people moving from place to place looking for food – and usually killing each other.
      Lynn 😀

        Definitely. I went into expecting a by the numbers post apocalyptic book, so I’m glad I took the chance on it.

    The Girl in the Tower looks like a great book. I hope you enjoy your current reads.

    I’m about to finish The Cruel Prince and next? Something from the review pile. I have so many January review books to choose from😁

    I love the sound of The War of Undoing:) I look forward to hearing what you make of it. Have a great reading week, Lynn.

    After finishing my re-read of The Amber Spyglass by Philip Pullman, I am now reading Seeking Allah, Finding Jesus by Nabeel Qureshi and I am hoping to start Sandokan, The Pirates of Malaysia by Emilio Salgari soon. Happy reading!

    I’ve been seeing The Wolves of Winter literally EVERYWHERE lately. It’s gotten me very curious. Can’t wait to see your review 🙂

    • @lynnsbooks

      I enjoyed it but then I’m a bit of a sucker for post apocalyptic type books. I liked the main character and the setting.
      Lynn 😀

    I’m hoping to snag The Wolves of Winter from the library soon!
