    Feeder sounds like a fun read!

  2. Zezee

    Yup, def want to see what you think of School for Psychics.

      I’m picking up a worrisome vibe 😀 BUt, will be picking up soon.

    I just finished Looking Glass and loved it, my review will be up this week sometime. And I’m reading Smoke Eaters right now and it’s pretty good, although I’m holding out until the end to make a final call on just what I thought of it.

    • @lynnsbooks

      Looking Glass was excellent wasn’t it. Look forward to your Smoke Eaters review.

    I’ll be crossing my fingers to hear what you think of School for Psychics and The Sisters Mederos!

    • @lynnsbooks

      Yeah, I hope they work out okay (in fairness I’ve read a couple of not so positive reviews for both but I’m keeping an open mind).
      Lynn 😀

    Looking forward to your review of The Bitter Twins. It’s not long since I read The Ninth Rain so I can’t wait to find out what happens next 🙂

  6. Sid

    I will wait for the ” school for physics” review. It’s in my TBR and for some reason I keep pushing it back

    • @lynnsbooks

      I’ve heard a few mixed reviews, which does put me off slightly – but I’m picking it up shortly.

    I plan on reading Sleeping Giants this week then diving into a book about investing #adulting

  8. maddalena@spaceandsorcery

    Feeder is the one I’m more intrigued about and I can’t wait to read your review 🙂

    • @lynnsbooks

      About 2/3 in. It’s very quick paced, it almost has an x-men comic book feel if that makes sense at all.
      Lynn 😀

    After finishing Six Tudor Queens: Katherine of Aragon, The True Queen by Alison Weir, I have started reading Hazard of Shadows by Mike Phillips, the second book in Phillips’ Chronicles of the Goblin King series. Happy reading!

    • @lynnsbooks

      Sounds great – look forward to reading your thoughts for all of those.
      Lynn 😀

    I’m really looking forward to reading your review of The Bitter Twins – and Sufficiently Advanced Magic looks really cool… Annoyingly, I’ve only had access to an extract of School for Psychics, but hopefully I’ll get a chance to read the arc. Not all that happy with Netgalley at present. There are a whole raft of books I’ve requested that I’m simply left waiting for and given that my feedback stats are currently at 93% I don’t know why!

    • @lynnsbooks

      Yeah, I’ve noticed a change in NG at the moment – my stats are nowhere near as good as yours but my requests do seem to hang pending for a while sometimes and it just makes it really difficult to plan if you suddenly get a bunch of responses all at once. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not complaining about being given access to books just I wish it was a bit more timely because sometimes I kind of give up on a book and think my schedule is free and request others and then ‘bam’ they all get approved and I have an immediate backlog. Still – good book problems to have. Silver linings 😀 😀
      Lynn 😀

      • sjhigbee

        Oh yes – I don’t want to sound ungrateful as I’m so very grateful to be given access to arcs. But before Netgalley was divided into regions, I got approved for far more books than is the case now. And you’re right – I have a number Pending and then a number I’ve ‘wished’ for which don’t even show up on my Bookshelf, making it very difficult to plan for. Though on my current showing, I tend to assume that I won’t get approval for them – and I’m generally right:)
