Another week just flew by didn’t it.  I’m not sure why everything is rushing past me at breakneck speed at the moment but there it is.  I can barely remember what we’ve been up to so I’ll move swiftly on.  SPFBO5 is very nearly underway – starts at the beginning of July and I’ll be posting about how I plan to handle things this time around – I’ve already posted my covers in preparation for the cover contest and just need to select my three favourites – there are some impressive covers for sure, check them out here.  This week I’ve read three books, I did go off plan a little but read two of my scheduled books.  The Whisper Man was brilliant, I loved it and in fact it totally creeped me out one night – I was actually scared to go to bed (obviously bear in mind that I’m a raging wuss so it might not be quite as scary for others)!  I also read Nocturna and will have a review for that one shortly.  It didn’t work out quite as well as I’d hoped but I think that could just be me or a mood thing.  Finally, I picked up, Sorcery of Thorns by Margaret Rogerson – I just couldn’t resist all the glowing feedback it seems to be receiving and so far I’ve been really enjoying it.  I should have it finished before this post goes live so that makes a total of three books this week.  I did also start an audiobook but then was shockingly forgetful about listening to it whenever the opportunity arose.  Oh well, that’s what next week is for I suppose.  I’m a little behind with reviews but hoping to catch up with some next week which will make my blog seem a bit busier than normal (assuming I stick to my plans) but I would like to get back on track.

So, here’s what I’ve been reading:

My books:

  1. The Whisper Man by Alex North
  2. Nocturna by Maya Motayne
  3. Sorcery of Thorns by Margaret Rogerson

Next scheduled reads:

  1. Storm Cursed by Patricia Briggs
  2. Priest of Lies by Peter McLean
  3. Soul of the Sword by Julie Kagawa

Upcoming reviews

  1. King of the Road by RS Belcher
  2. Fire Touched by Patricia Briggs
  3. Silence Fallen by Patricia Briggs
  4. The Corset by Laura Purcell
  5. The Whisper Man by Alex North
  6. Nocturna by Maya Motayne
  7. Sorcery of Thorns by Margaret Rogerson

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

    I’m looking at the calendar and realizing there is only 1 week left in June, but I still have so many June books to read😬 Obviously I’m not going to get to them which makes me sad. But I’m squeezing in a few more, I’m reading Velocity Weapon right now and so far its promising! Can’t wait to hear what you think of Sorcery of Thorns😁

    • @lynnsbooks

      I loved Sorcery of Thorns and hopefully will post a review pretty soon. Hope Velocity Weapon works out well for you – I’ve just read a very positive review for it only this morning.

    I hope you enjoy soul of the sword! I’m excited to pick it up soon!

    Cant wait to see what you think of Nocturna. I loved it but I didn’t read the book everyone seems to be comparing it to.

    • @lynnsbooks

      I didn’t read the other book either but tbh Nocturna didn’t work out too well for me which was a shame. I’m glad that you loved it though.
      Lynn 😀

        I’m sorry it didnt work out for you. It seemed very hit or miss for everyone.

      • @lynnsbooks

        Yes, I’ve seen some of the reviews. It’s a shame, I really wanted to love it so perhaps my expectations were just all wrong going in to the read.
        Lynn 😀

    I recently finished Sorcery of Thorns and I absolutely loved it!

  5. Mogsy @ BiblioSanctum

    I know we’ve discussed its awesomeness already, but I still can’t wait to read your full review of The Corset/Poison Thread!!!

    • @lynnsbooks

      Yes, I’ll be reviewing this very soon – I’d like to really catch up with all my reviews before SPFBO – although that does mean my blog will seem to be ridiculously busy – oh well!
      Lynn 😀

    I love the look of The Corset, Lynn and Himself is looking forward to the Mercy Thompson series, which I’ve lost track off… I hope you have a great reading week – the cover for Nocturna looks fab. Best of luck with the opening salvo of this up-coming SPFBO!

    • @lynnsbooks

      The Corset was brilliant, I absolutely loved it and it was a straight out 5* read for me. I can’t wait to read more by Purcell.
      I’m getting on with the Mercy series – I have the latest one waiting for me to pick up – hopefully this week.
      Lynn 😀

    Seems like kind of a whirlwind week! I also can’t believe a new SPFBO is starting already, seems like the last one went by so fast.

    • @lynnsbooks

      I know this SPFBO does seem to have come along very quickly. I think we had more of a break last time.
      Lynn 😀
