Weekly Wrap Up : 9th September 2018

Hope you’ve all enjoyed your week.  I’ve read and enjoyed two books this week – one a retelling of a classic story from the female point of view and the other a dark story of mental frailty and obsession.  Hopefully, in my endeavour to catch up, the reviews will follow shortly.  In fact I might have a few more posts than is normal over the next couple of weeks as I really would like to work through the backlog that I’ve let develop and it’s finally occurred to me that if I only review two books a week, and then read another two – well, do the math, I’m never going to make a dint am I.  So, advance apologies if my blog is a little busier than usual (or that could just be wishful thinking on my part and I’ll simply procrastinate and do nothing).  I’ve also started my three SPFBO books and will be outlining my next three in batch 2 very soon.

So, my books:

  1. The Silence of the Girls by Pat Barker
  2. Dark Water by Elizabeth Lowry

Next week’s reads (I’ve perhaps been a little ambitious with three but I couldn’t choose between them):

  1. I Always Find you by John Ajvide Lindqvist
  2. The Ember Blade by Chris Wooding
  3. The Sisters of the Winter Wood by Rena Rossner

Upcoming reviews: –

  1. Starborn by Lucy Hounsom
  2. Envy of Angels by Matt Wallace
  3. Noir by Christopher Moore
  4. The Burning Chambers by Kate Mosse
  5. The Mystery of Three Quarters by Sophie Hannah
  6. Bad Man by Dathan Auerbach
  7. The Silence of the Girls by Pat Barker
  8. Dark Water by Elizabeth Lowry

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

    Really curious about I Always Find You – I don’ think that one has a US release date yet though, hope that will change soon.

      I liked I Always Find You so was keen to pick that one up. Hope it’s as good.

    I’ve got to get a copy of Always Find You! I’m reading Phoenix Unbound right now, it’s so good! Not sure what I’ll start next.

    I judge a book by their pretty book covers. You have quite the selection of them. Thanks for sharing!

    Last week, I loved reading the spooky Cauldstane by Linda Gillard, which was perfect to kick start the R.eaders I.mbibing P.eril reading event for me. Happy reading and reviewing this week! 🙂

    Oooh, I’m really looking forward to The Sisters of the Winter Wood. Hope you enjoy it, can’t wait to hear your thoughts. (The cover kind of reminds me of Black Forest engravings.)
