So, I’ve not been up to too much this week.  My better half has conspired to hurt his back and has been a little bit laid up – he’s getting very bored but these things will take their own sweet time to work out.  I’ve managed to read two books this week and also made an attempt to catch up with with three reviews.  I’m also listening to The Boy on the Bridge and I’m a third way through Ben Galley’s Chasing Graves.

Week ending 14th October:

  1. Charmcaster by Sebastien DeCastell
  2. Soulbinder by Sebastien DeCastell

Next week’s reads:

  1. Chasing Graves by Ben Galley
  2. In the Night Wood by Dale Bailey
  3. Slenderman

Upcoming reviews:

  1. Starborn by Lucy Hounsom
  2. Envy of Angels by Matt Wallace
  3. Noir by Christopher Moore
  4. Record of a Spaceborn Few by Becky Chambers
  5. Dracul by Dacre Stoker
  6. The Tethered Mage by Melissa Caruso
  7. Creatures: The Legacy of Frankenstein by Emma Newman; Tade Thompson; Paul Meloy; Kaaron Warren; Rose Biggin
  8. Charmcaster by Sebastien DeCastell
  9. Soulbinder by Sebastien DeCastell

Also, my giveaway for a copy of Laurence MacNaughton’s No Sleep Till Doomsday is still open so if you’d like to chuck your hat into the ring the giveaway is international, there are two copies available and there are no rules at all so just give me a shout.

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

    You have some wonderful books there! I’ve just finished reading Charmcaster and looking forward to tucking into Soulslinger. Ben Galley’s book looks as if it’s horror – which is a shame because I’m too much of a wuss to tackle it and I enjoy his writing. I hope your other half soon feels a lot better – backs are misery when they misbehave and you have a good week:)

    Hope his back feels better soon!

      Thanks, it does seem to be slowly but surely improving.

    Chasing Graves looks really good! I hope you enjoy 🙂

    Looks like some suitably creepy reads for this week:-) I’m curious to hear how you like Chasing Graves.

    • @lynnsbooks

      It’s an unusual concept so I hope it works out well.
      Lynn 😀

  5. Kathy @ Pages Below the Vaulted Sky

    That’s such an October-appropriate roster! And I’ve been curious about the Slenderman book so I’ll be looking forward to hearing your thoughts on that. 🙂

    • @lynnsbooks

      Yes, I’m really looking forward to diving into that one.
      Lynn 😀

  6. Mogsy @ BiblioSanctum

    Looking forward to your thoughts on Slender Man. I grabbed that one too 😀

    • @lynnsbooks

      I really like the sound of it. Can’t wait to start.
      Lynn 😀

    Ah, I loved Soulbinder so much (as of now, Shadowblack is my least favourite in the series, but gosh, what a series). Also looking forward to hearing your thoughts on The Tethered Mage!

    I’m reading In the Vanishers’ Palace (Aliette de Bodard) which is proving me a liar for saying (oooh all of about a week ago) that I was sadly accepting that romance really isn’t for me, but not sure what I’ll pick up next – I bounced off The Library at Mount Char, so it’s either Bellman and Black or maybe Record of a Spaceborn Few.

    • @lynnsbooks

      Soulbinder was great wasn’t it. Definitely a different feel I thought and getting somewhat darker?
      Lynn 😀

        Our boy is growing up and losing his innocent conviction that It’s All Gonna Be Okay Somehow. I am so excited for the next book. So many things have become clearer as so many things have become muddier 😉

      • @lynnsbooks

        Haha – yes, everything is becoming as clear as mud.
        Lynn 😀

    I can see you are gearing up nicely in preparation for Halloween: the covers of the books you lined up for the week look oh-so-darkly scary! 🙂

    • @lynnsbooks

      Yep – I’m preparing the Halloween and reading some spooky titles.
      Lynn 😀

    Lynn, in the last week I have finished reading Kin by Snorri Kristjansso; I’ve continued reading the classic allegory The Pilgrim’s Progress by John Bunyan and I have started reading A Letter of Mary by Laurie R. King, the third Mary Russell and Sherlock Holmes mystery. Happy reading to you this week 🙂

    • @lynnsbooks

      Wow, that’s a lot of excellent reading. I can’t wait to read your thoughts.
      Lynn 😀
