I hope everyone has had a good week.  August is almost gone – how?  It’s a mystery.  Anyway, this is going to be short and sweet this week as I’m in a bit of a rush.  I’ve managed three books this week.  Plus I’ve completed reading through the first 30% of my second batch of SPFBO books and decided which two books to carry forward for further reading.  My feedback post is here.  I’ve also reviewed the book I carried forward from the first batch of books – Cry Havoc – review here.  The Witch Who Courted Death is one of the books I chose for the 2019 Rewind Challenge.  Details here.  Hopefully I can see my way clear to reading another off the list next month.

My books:

  1. The House of Sacrifice by Anna Smith Spark
  2. Brightfall Jaime Lee Moyer
  3. The Witch Who Courted Death by Maria Lewis

Next scheduled reads:

  1. The Dragon Republic by RF Kuang
  2. Kingdom of Souls by Rena Barron
  3. Healer’s Ruin by Chris O’Mara
  4. The Lore of Prometheus by Graham Austin-King

Upcoming reviews

  1. King of the Road by RS Belcher
  2. Queenslayer by Sebastien DeCastell
  3. A Little Hatred by Joe Abercrombie
  4. Storm Cursed by Patricia Briggs
  5. Missing Person by Sarah Lotz
  6. Brightfall Jaime Lee Moyer
  7. The Witch Who Courted Death by Maria Lewis

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

    Oh Lynn, I don’t know where August went either! This last week I finished reading the sweeping, historical fiction, Queen of the North by Anne O’Brien. I am also almost at the end of Christian non-fiction Searching For Sunday by Rachel Held Evans and I started reading the comical Reaper Man by Terry Pratchett. All in all a good week of reading methinks! Happy reading next week! 🙂

    I don’t know where August went either! Crazy. Love the look of both The House of Sacrifice and The Witch who Courted Death (love that cover).

    • @lynnsbooks

      Yeah, it’s a pretty good cover for The Witch book and House of Sacrifice

    I can’t believe September’s right around the corner and school is about to start up again! I’ve just gotten my summer schedule down, and now I’ll have to change up again, lol. And seriously, I still haven’t been able to get to The Dragon Republic, honestly, I have no good excuse.

    • @lynnsbooks

      Haha – Seeing the amount of books that you seem to receive every month I’m not surprised you haven’t read it yet – tbh I haven’t started it yet Hoping to do so this week though. I need these weekly wraps – they help me to focus even if sometimes I go off plan.

    Looking forward to your review of The Dragon Republic. I have it on my TBR, but I keep pushing it down because other things popping up.

    Looking forward to your review of several of these. I really can’t wait to see what you think of Brightfall!

    • @lynnsbooks

      It’s very well written. Beautiful in fact. And, JLM has managed to turn it into a fairytale rather than simply a band of merry men. In fact Robin and his crew are not the focus. This is Marian’s story, she has her own magic and goes on a journey of self discovery. It’s quite a gentle book in many respects and feels maybe YA but I’m not great at determining that because I don’t always pay proper attention so if inappropriate themes for YA are going on I wouldn’t think of it.
      Lynn 😀

      • waytoofantasy

        I always think YA has themes of self-discovery so if it has that it’s possible it *may* fit into YA but I haven’t really paid attention as to how this one was being marketed. It sounds great! I need to find somewhere to squeeze it in for sure. Thanks!

      • @lynnsbooks

        Yeah, the other thing Marian isn’t a young adult – so there is that as well. And she has two children – so probably not YA but at the same time I don’t think there was anything inappropriate.
        Lynn 😀
