We’re into November.  I can’t believe it’s the 4th already.  This week I started out by speeding through The Winters by Lisa Gabriele which is a retelling of Rebecca that was really good – my review will follow shortly.  I also read Brandon Sanderson’s Skyward and loved that too and I’ve also read about a third of An Easy Death by Charlaine Harris and started Julie Kagawa’s Shadow of the Fox. I hope you’ve all had a good week.  Here are my reads from last week.

  1. Skyward by Brandon Sanderson
  2. The Winters by Lisa Gabriele

Next week’s reads (obviously I won’t read all of these but I’ve started two already so three might be possible):

  1. An Easy Death by Charlaine Harris
  2. Shadow of the Fox by Julie Kagawa
  3. Dragonshadow (Heartstone #2) by Elle Katharine White
  4. Empress of All Seasons by Emiko Jean

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. The Tethered Mage by Melissa Caruso
  6. In the Night Wood by Dale Bailey
  7. Skyward by Brandon Sanderson
  8. The Winters by Lisa Gabriele

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

    I just posted my review of An Easy Death, I loved it! I’m about to finish a YA thriller called Little White Lies and after that might be the new MR Carey.

    I don’t know anything about Skyward. I need to investigate.

      Quite a few people have said they hadn’t been aware of Skyward which is odd as it’s Sanderson. Perhaps it’s been very low key.

    Oh, I really love that cover for Shadow of the Fox! It’s so much better than the US version.

    I’m not sure where the time is going either, can’t believe we’re almost a week into the month! Hope you enjoy your reads this week. I’m reading An Easy Death right now as well and really enjoying it. 🙂

    I really enjoyed The Winters. I know you’re a huge fan of Rebecca, so if you thought it was a good retelling, that is really high praise! I can’t wait to hear what you thought 😀

    • @lynnsbooks

      I thought the writing style was really good. The author really captures certain elements from the original ut then gave it a modern feel and a new twist. Not what I expected.

    Ah… *audible thump of the penny dropping* It’s THOSE Winters!! A retelling of Rebecca – one of my FAVOURITE books as I love du Maurier’s writing. Another one I need to get hold of! In the meantime, you have an awesome reading list – me and Brandon Sanderson parted company a while ago. Not because I don’t enjoy reading his work, but because there is so much OTHER stuff out there! But I think I should get back in touch with at least some of his series… I want to get hold of An Easy Death, too.

    • @lynnsbooks

      I’m about two thirds into An Easy Death and really enjoying it.

        *sigh* Not helping me keep my TBR pile under control, Lynn – not helping at all…

      • @lynnsbooks

        Sorry – it’s one of the pitfalls – or bonuses – of being a blogger
        Lynn 😀

      • sjhigbee

        I think it’s a bonus… Isn’t it?

    You had a great reading week! I haven’t read a book/had time to sit down and read for the past week and a half since I’ve been swamped by school work, but I’m hoping to get some good reading time in over the next few days!

    • @lynnsbooks

      School work definitely has to come first. Happy reading when you get the chance.
      Lynn 😀

    Loving all those Asian-inspired books you have on your plate! Also loving the abundance of swords on those covers (well, except for An Easy Death :P) I’m reading Lavie Tidhar’s Unholy Land and rereading Brom’s The Child Thief at the moment. 🙂

    • @lynnsbooks

      I’ve not read Lavie Tidhar but I’m curious so await your review.
      Lynn 😀
