Booking Ahead/Weekly Wrap Up

Sunday PostI’m trying to get back into the habit of doing a round-up of the week just completed and also take a look at my plans for the forthcoming week.  I rather got out of the habit of doing this last year but I would like to reinstate this type of post as I feel it keeps me on track.  So, I’m linking up to The Sunday Post over at Kimberly’s  Caffeinated Reviewer.  Without further ado:

Last week

I completed and reviewed The Mask of Mirrors.  I also started and finished The Shape of Darkness by Laura Purcell (review to be posted this forthcoming week).  I’m also 50% into Juliet Marillier’s Daughter of the Forest which I’m buddy reading with Mayri over at the Bookforager.  I’m also listening/reading to We Lie With Death by Devin Madson.

Next Week

I’m hoping to complete We Lie With Death and start listening to the audio version of Paternus: War of Gods by Dyrk Ashton.  I will also be reading my SPFBO book Nether Light by Shaun Paul Stevens.  Ambitious?  Perhaps a little bit – let’s see how I get on.  Something about the best laid plans.

Reviews Posted since last Sunday:

  1. Mask of Mirrors by MA Carrick
  2. Pawn’s Gambit by Rob J Hayes

Forthcoming Reviews:

  1. The Shape of Darkness by Laura Purcell
  2. Ink and Sigil by Kevin Hearne
  3. Shiver by Allie Reynolds

What’ve you been up to the past week?

    Looks like you’ve got some epic fantasies planned for this week. I can’t wait to read your review of The Shape of Darkness 😁

  3. Kimberly @ Caffeinated Reviewer

    You had a great week. I love Hearne and enjoyed the audio of Ink & Bone. Have a great week.

    I hope you are able to get back into doing these posts as you would like, Lynn. It helps me give my reading and blogging a bit more structure. 🙂 This week I finished reading the cosy crime caper, The Thursday Murder Club by Richard Osman and now I have just started a re-read of Ivanhoe by Walter Scott. Happy reading! 😃

    I’m very much looking forward to reading your review of The Shape of Darkness, as this was one I abandoned because I found it a bit too dark. Though I thought the writing excellent. And I’m also keen to read your opinion of Ink & Sigil – I loved it, though Himself can’t get on with it. I hope the coming week is a peaceful, healthy one, Lynn:)

      I really enjoyed Ink and Sigil – and would definitely like to read more.The Shape of Darkness really was Dark, I started off with slightly mixed feelings and didn’t think this one was going to be for me but then I simply became hooked.
      Lynn 😀

        So glad you enjoyed The Shape of Darkness! I had a hunch that it was more about me than the book:)). And I’m delighted you, too, like Ink and Sigil – I’m keeping my eye for the next book in this series.

    I cannot wait to see what you thought of Purcell’s new book! And also We Lie In Death, I’m hoping to fit that one in next month.

    • @lynnsbooks

      I ended up loving the Purcell book, it’s her usual darkness. I got off to a slow start and thought this might be the book to break me and then all of a sudden I was hooked and fascinated where the story was taking me.

    I started Daughter of Forst once but never finished it, I think? Got sidetracked, nothing wrong with the book. I hope your buddy read goes well! A lot of people love Marillier.

    • Lexlingua

      Marillier is awesome <3. Perhaps you can try Wolfskin as another starting work for Marillier's? You might like that one more.

      • @lynnsbooks

        Thanks – I’ll go take a look at that 😀

    • @lynnsbooks

      Yeah, I must confess that part of the book has really shocked me a little. But I need to press on and see how I feel about that particular event in the light of the complete book.
      Lynn 😀

    I’d seen Paternus in a lot of best-of-2020 reads. Seems to have some great mythology built-in on science fiction. That’s usually catnip for me… except that it’s a trilogy, and I’m not doing so well with books that aren’t standalones. 😦
    I hope the audiobook turns out to be great — and if you recommend it, that’s the version I’ll start off with too.~

    This is a lot of reading, I think you can do it though! I’ll be curious to see what you think of Daughter of the Forest since Marillier is a favorite of mine. Have a fantastic week, Lynn!

    • @lynnsbooks

      Just over half way through Daughter of the Forest. Hoping to finish it just by the end of the month.
      Otherwise these plans are probably a little bit ambitious – but, no harm in trying.
      Lynn 😀
