Hi, have you all had a good week?  I’ve got a miserable cold and a sore throat which is sucking all my will to read as I don’t seem to be focused on the page – that feeling where you read a sentence five times and think ‘what just happened?’.  I’ve gone off schedule a little and read Grey Sister by Mark Lawrence.  Couldn’t resist the next instalment of Nona’s adventures.  I’m reading Devil’s Night Dawning – which I have to admit is a bit of a struggle so far but hopefully will pick up,  And just started Noir – no real impressions yet as only about 5% into the story.

Books read:

  1. Grey Sister by Mark Lawrence – both covers below – which is your favourite?

Next Week’s Reads:

  1. Devil’s Night Dawning by Damien Black
  2. Noir by Christopher Moore
  3. The Poppy War by R F Kuang

Upcoming reviews:

  1. Starborn by Lucy Hounsom
  2. Envy of Angels by Matt Wallace

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

    I hope you feel better soon😐 I’m in my really busy phase with my daughter’s choir, end of the end projects and just trying to push through til the end of May, so I know my blogging/reading is going to be affected as well. I have a blog tour book with a review due next Sunday (Sky in the Deep) so I literally have to drop everything and read it so I’ll be ready for my tour date, ugh!

      I know what you mean. May is going to be busy for me too so I’m trying to plan ahead – not doing so well because of this stinky cold but we’ll see.
      Lynn 😀

    Aww, I hope you’ll feel better soon.
    Loving that Poppy War cover, btw.

    • @lynnsbooks

      It’s a really good cover – looking forward to picking it up.
      Lynn 😀

    hope you feel better! 🙂
    I definitely like the first cover of Grey Sister much better. I need to start those books they sound awesome.
    I can’t wait for you to read The Poppy War!!!!

    Oh dear! I’m so very sorry that you are feeling so rough… I knew you were under the weather – but I hadn’t appreciated that you were so ill:(. I hope you’ve managed to enjoy a bit of the recent sunshine. Take care and I hope you soon recover, Lynn.

    • @lynnsbooks

      Thanks Sarah, it’s only a cold and a bit of a sore throat but it can certainly make you feel miserable.
      Lynn 😀

      • sjhigbee

        Oh for sure – wishing you well very soon, my friendx

      • @lynnsbooks

        Thanks, feeling a lot better already.
        Lynn 😀

      • sjhigbee

        Delighted to hear it:))

    Hope you feel better!

    I should get around to reading Grey Sister. Red Sister was amazing. 😀

    • @lynnsbooks

      Oh yes, you should definitely pick up the next one.
      Lynn 😀

  7. Book Club Mom

    Feel better soon!

  8. Greg

    Hope you feel better! And looking forward to your thoughts on School of Psychics, as that’s a premise I can get behind but I haven’t seen enough reviews yet to know if I need it. 🙂

    I love that second cover of Grey Sister, with the sea and the clouds. Makes me want to get it!

    • @lynnsbooks

      I loved Grey Sister. School for Psychics has given me mixed feelings. It’s not a bad book but it didn’t quite blow me away either.
      Lynn 😀

  9. Mogsy @ BiblioSanctum

    Oh no, several people I know have been laid out by a cold or illness this week. Probably due to the iffy weather. At least you got to have Grey Sister help you through! Hope you’re feeling better!

    • @lynnsbooks

      Yeah, it’ll soon run it’s course. Grey Sister was the only thing I could face picking up. Concentration was a bit lacking otherwise.
      Lynn 😀

    Would you like some chicken soup? I know it works miracles with a cold… 🙂
    Get well soon!!!!!

    • @lynnsbooks

      Yeah, chicken soup sounds lovely. I’m at that stage where I just can’t be bothered with anything. It’ll run it’s course and then I’ll probably feel ravenous.
      Lynn 😀

  11. Wendleberry

    I like the white/grey action-pose cover. Though it makes me feel bad because i’m SO BEHIND… i still haven’t started Prince of Fools *hides* (Though it is fourth on my to-read list.)

  12. jessicabookworm

    Aw Lynn, I am sorry to hear you haven’t been feeling well – I hope you feel better soon! Over the last week, I finished reading the gripping historical fiction The Red Queen by Philippa Gregory out in my garden, enjoying the recent sunshine! While I have continued reading God’s Smuggler by Brother Andrew and The Tenant of Wildfell Hall by Anne Bronte. Happy reading!

    • @lynnsbooks

      Well, it’s just a cold but it’s odd how it makes you feel so miserable. It’ll run it’s course. Glad you’re enjoying your reading and the sunshined.
      Lynn 😀
