Well, I went and tempted fate last week by saying we were having lovely weather so of course now Storm Freya has hit the country with up to 80 mph winds – I hope everyone stays safe!  *Shakes fist* at temperamental weather.  Last week I read two books which included one of my SPFBO finalists (the review for which will be posted tomorrow).

My books:

  1. Symphony of the Wind by Steven McKinnon (one of the SPFBO finalists)
  2. The True Queen by Zen Cho

Next week’s reads:

  1. The Kingdom of Copper by S. A. Chakraborty
  2. Polaris Rising: A Novel by Jessie Mihalik
  3. The Strawberry Thief (Chocolat #4) by Joanne Harris

Currently reading:

  1. The Kingdom of Copper S. A. Chakraborty

Upcoming reviews:

  1. Symphony of the Wind by Steven McKinnon (one of the SPFBO finalists) (Review scheduled for Monday)
  2. The True Queen by Zen Cho
  3. The Anointed by Keith Ward

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

    Ha! A friend of mine has a daughter called Freya – so we keep saying “f**& off Freya!!” as another gust whistles round the house and down the chimney, and feeling bad for the adorable little girl we would normally think of when we say ‘Freya’. 😀

      Yep, the wind howling round the house can be a bit scary sometimes – it didn’t actually get too bad where we are but there’s a lot of trees and so I always feel a little bit apprehensive when they seem to be thrashing about.

    I love that cover of The True Queen! I’m going to be reading it this month. Stay safe in those high winds!

    • @lynnsbooks

      Thanks – the winds have been and gone now thankfully and without mishap.
      I enjoyed the True Queen – the regency period and the element of manners that comes into play.

    This week, I finished reading the latest, thrilling Robert Langdon adventure, Origin by Dan Brown. Yesterday, I also started reading Lives of Notorious Cooks by Brendan Connell, which – while a little unconventional – is proving to be a lighter read I can easily dip in and out of. I hope you stay safe in these winds too! I am safely tucked up at home in my pyjamas with the cat. 🙂

    • @lynnsbooks

      Tucked up in pjs sounds like a plan. We didn’t have any mishaps with the winds which was a relief.

    Oh snap, I didn’t know Harris had another book out. But gah, I am way behind on the Chocolat sequence.

    • @lynnsbooks

      I hadn’t realised this was due out either – but I do so lover her writing.

    I have The True Queen in my reading queue and I’m looking forward to what sounds like a different take on the genre 🙂

    • @lynnsbooks

      I enjoyed it. It’s not a straightforward sequel to the first because, although the original characters do put in appearance, the main protagonists are different this time round. I love the regency aspect to the story and how perfectly ridiculous some things come across because of the proper manners of the period.
      Lynn 😀

    80mph winds, holy moly!
    Looking forward to your thoughts on The Kingdom of Copper!

    • @lynnsbooks

      Still reading it – about 30% in so far. Need to pick up my pace a little!
      Lynn 😀
