Hope everyone’s had a good week.  I’ve not read as much as I planned.  I’ve completed The Girl in the Tower (which was an enchanting read) and I’m about 40% through The War of Undoing which is my first SPFBO book. I’ve also read about 25% of Anthony Ryan’s The Waking Fire as part of the Fantasy Hive’s reading club and so far this is very intriguing and a great read.


Books read:

  1. The Girl in the Tower by Katherine Arden (which I’ve already started and reads beautifully)


Next Week’s Reads:

  1. The War of Undoing by Alex Perry (my first SPFBO book)
  2. Start The Chrysalids by John Wyndham (Vintage Sci Fi book)
  3. The Feed by Nick Clark Windo

Upcoming reviews:

  1. Starborn by Lucy Hounsom
  2. Envy of Angels by Matt Wallace
  3. The Girl in the Tower by Katherine Arden

I’d love to know what you’re reading this week.

    It’s been a long time since I read Windham’s The Chrysalids (at least 35 years, if not more) but I do remember it as one of my very first forays into post-apocalyptic fiction, so I’m more than looking forward to your review! 🙂

    I wish i could read this many books in a week… most of the time i can’t even finish one.
    I want to read more John Wyndham, constantly. He’s my favourite. But i also want to make them last forever…

      Haha – the old conundrum of racing to finish a story that you’re loving at the same time as not wanting it to end.

    This is a great list – I LOVED The Chrysalids when I read it a very long time ago… I very much hope you like it. The Girl in the Tower sounds great:). I hope you have a really enjoyable week, Lynn.

    • @lynnsbooks

      The Girl in the Tower was even better than the first book.
      Hope you have a lovely week too.
      Lynn 😀

        I must get hold of The Girl in the Tower – glad you enjoyed it so much, Lynn:)

      • @lynnsbooks

        Oh yes – you must get hold of a copy.

    Can’t wait for your review of The Girl in the Tower. I liked it even more than the first one!

    Looking forward to your review of The Girl in the Tower because I can’t wait to read that book myself. I also requested The Feed from the library, so will be interested to hear what you make of that one.
    Enjoy your reading 🙂

    • @lynnsbooks

      Thanks. The Girl in the Tower was brilliant. Even better than No.1 so I hope you get to read it soon.
      Lynn 😀

    Nothing finished this time but I am mere pages away from the end of Seeking Allah, Finding Jesus by Nabeel Qureshi. I have Sandokan, The Pirates of Malaysia by Emilio Salgari and The Plague Charmer by Karen Maitland lined up to start soon. Happy reading!

  7. Danya @ Fine Print

    I’m so pleased that you liked The Girl in the Tower! Haven’t read it yet myself but I’m quite excited to do so soon. 🙂

    • @lynnsbooks

      I liked it more than the first – which I seriously didn’t expect to happen.
      Lynn 😀
