It’s been two weeks since my last wrap up (I posted a monthly review at the end of August and so thought a weekly wrap would be overkill).  Hope you’re all well and happy and September is treating you as you would like.  I’ve had a few ups and downs with the dog.  He had to be knocked out to have a small surgery – which I can’t deny scared me half to death (with him being 14 years old) – but all was well and whilst he was under his teeth have been cleaned and his nails clipped – so all is good on the doggy front (although he wasn’t very happy with me at the time!)  Anyway, I’ve been reading well, here’s what I’ve read since my last update (also I’ve made a start on my SPFBO books for the month and hope to post a mid way post on the 15th (all going well that is).  And, of course I have a few reviews to catch up with but that’s what happens when you manage to get through a few more books than normal.  A few of these reviews are scheduled in though:

  1. Sofii @ A Book. A Thought.

    I’m looking forward to know your thoughts on The Ten Thousand Doors of January! it sounds SO good 😍❤️

  2. Tammy

    I’m glad your doggie is ok! You read a ton of books, I’m really curious to hear what you thought about Ration. I’m hoping to start January next😁

    • @lynnsbooks

      I thought Ration was great – my review will be up in a few days. So compelling. I thought it might be too dark for me but I was just gripped.

    Oh I can’t wait to read kingdom of souls! And I’m hoping to pick up Dragon republic soon as well!
    Have a good week!


    • @lynnsbooks

      I’ve read lots of positive reviews for Dragon Republic so I’m keen to get to it.
      Lynn 😀

    Just finished Ten Thousand Doors of January myself, and arrggh, so envious of your copy of Bone China! And good to hear things are okay with the dog. My dogs are also getting up there in age, both of them, and I am nervous whenever they need to get shots or medication because they can’t handle it as well as when they were young pups. They need to get their teeth cleaned too, but I’m afraid the anesthesia will be rough on them at this age.

    • @lynnsbooks

      Yeah I was very scared for the dog. It doesn’t feel fair to put him through all this at his age but it had to be done and it went very well. Currently reading Bone China. Very atmospheric so far. What did you make of Ten Thousand Doors. It took me a while to get into it. Slow going to begin with but then I ended up loving it.

    I hope your dog feels much better lately and that he will somehow see the benefits of what you had to do for him! I soooo want to read The Dragon Republic too. Hope you enjoy the books you plan on reading this month, Lynn! Happy reading! 😀

    • @lynnsbooks

      You too. Yes, the dog has sprung back really well from his little op – I over worry. He was out of sorts for about half a day but is back to his jaunty self now.
      Lynn 😀

  6. Amanda @Cover2CoverMom

    I JUST finished The Dragon Republic and it was an excellent follow up to The Poppy War! It definitely had a different feel to it than the first book, but still had loads of action and surprises 🙂 I hope you enjoy it as much as I did!

    • @lynnsbooks

      I hope so too and that definitely encourages me to pick it up asap – `i think I’ve been putting it off for some reason.
      Lynn 😀

    Glad your dog is well, Lynn! 14 and still going strong it seems like, that’s pretty impressive for a doggo. Hope you get a lot more time with him. 🙂

    • @lynnsbooks

      Well, he’s a terrier and they’re tough little dogs so hopefully he’s just keep on going. 😀
