    I admire you for always being able to stick to your reading plan. I’m already tempted to break mine, as I debate what to read next 😀

      I wish I did always stick to the plan – although, I do find that this weekly wrap up helps to organise me a little. I’m a bit seat of the pants but looking at what books are coming up on the timeline helps to keep me on track a little. Not easy though. Although, it’s not that difficult really because I request the books that I really want to read so I’m usually excited to pick them all up – it’s just a toss of the coin really.

    My week was a weird one and very busy. My biggest struggle is finishing what I’m reading.

      I know what you mean – sometimes you just seem to get hung up and not be moving forward.

    Looks like you had a productive week!

    Last week was great for me. Boss was on vacation and work was slow so may have spent a lot of time catching up on blogging. 😉

    Have a great week, Lynn!

    I just finished Foundryside and LOVED it. Such a unique book. Sometimes I think RJB isn’t really human, his stories are so different😁 lol

    I’m so excited to read Temper. I loved her first book and am anxious to see if I love this one as much!

    I can’t wait to hear what you think of The Tower of Living and Dying, and if it keeps the “dark” promises of its predecessor 🙂

    I love the look of Foundryside – that cover is stunning! As ever, huge respect to all that you do towards the SPFBO contest and I hope you have a great week, Lynn.

    • @lynnsbooks

      You too Sarah 😀

        And I’ve now got Foundryside – yippee!

      • @lynnsbooks

        Yippee – are you starting it straight away. I’ve begun but still early doors – we ca be reading buddies!
        Lynn 😀

      • sjhigbee

        Ooo… I could do. The book I’ve just started isn’t urgently required:)). I’ll start it tonight – that would be marvellous!

      • @lynnsbooks

        Great. It’ll be good to have somebody to talk to as and when things develop. 😄

      • sjhigbee

        I look forward to it:))

    As you know my blogging has really fallen behind with end of term and my holiday, but fortunately my reading has continued. Last week I finished two of my longer reads: the swashbuckling adventure Sandokan, The Pirates of Malaysia by Emilio Salgari and the hefty biography of Charles II by John Miller. Happy reading this week! 🙂

    • @lynnsbooks

      I know how you feel. I really fell behind in May. These things happen though – life just insists sometimes.
      Happy reading to you this week.
      Lynn 😀
