Howdy everyone.  Hope you’ve all been having a good week.  My plans have kind of gone out the window in many ways but it really doesn’t matter does it?  Plans are like rules – made for breaking? I’ve read four books this week, which sounds like a lot of reading but in fact I did start two of these books the previous week so I was just finishing things I’d already started – although I now need to do some more catching up with reviews of course.  I’ve had some very good reading.  I went off plan a little although I did read three of the books on my list so I’m not going to beat myself up.  I loved the second Heartstone book – it was great.  An Easy Death was very easy going and what I’ve come to expect from Charlaine Harris and Shadow of the Fox was a great Japanese inspired fantasy quest.  MR Carey’s Someone Like Me – I couldn’t resist picking it up and it was compelling indeed.  So, my books this past week:

  1. An Easy Death by Charlaine Harris
  2. Shadow of the Fox by Julie Kagawa
  3. Dragonshadow (Heartstone #2) by Elle Katharine White
  4. Someone Like Me by MR Carey

Next week’s reads:

  1. Empress of All Seasons by Emiko Jean
  2. Songwoman by Ilka Tampke

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. The Winters by Lisa Gabriele
  8. An Easy Death by Charlaine Harris
  9. Dragonshadow (Heartstone #2) by Elle Katharine White
  10. Someone Like Me by MR Carey

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

    It would be a boring old world if plans always worked out the way they were meant to. And I STILL think four books is impressive in a single week:). I look forward to hearing what you make of An Easy Death. I hope the coming week is a good one!

    I’m so glad you loved Dragonshadow, I hope I get to it very soon:-) And Someone Like Me was so good! Such a weird book and I’m still not sure what was going on, but I don’t care!

    An Easy Death sounds like a very intriguing read, and the more I hear about it, the more I’m curious to see for myself… And – FOUR books in a week? Wow… 🙂

    Lynn, reading plans are totally made to be broken 😀 This week, I finished reading the dark, historical fiction A Gathering of Ghosts by Karen Maitland.

    I blew through An Easy Death in one sitting this weekend, so good! And I’m starting on Someone Like Me now.

    I just finished An Easy Death, it was a really fun read. I look forward to hearing what you think of The Tethered Mage!

      I enjoyed the Tethered Mage although I’ve left the review now – which does tend to happen with my own books as oppose to review books. I need to write something up soon.

    I’m so jealous that you got to read Dragonshadow early!!!! I’m glad you liked it 😀 I LOVED Heartstone ❤

    • @lynnsbooks

      I really did enjoy it – maybe even more than the first although it has far less in common with P&P but really takes off on it’s own. I hope you read it soon, I”d love to know what you think.
      Lynn 😀
