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

So, the last week the weather was slightly nicer, or at least not as wet, which encouraged me to run round the house washing everything and cleaning windows and doors and frames.  Lots of fun really – although it also gave me the opportunity to listen to my audio book so – silver linings.  I read The Moonsteel Crown by Stephen Deas and my review for that should be posted tomorrow.  I also read and already posted my review for Darkness Forged by Matt Larkin, you can find that review below.  I started The Black Song by Anthony Ryan, I’m only about 10% in but first impressions are good already.  Finally I’m approximately 80% into Bjorn Larssen’s The Children which I suspect I will finish this evening.

Next Week

Firstly, hoping to complete The Children and The Black Song.  I’m thinking I will also make good progress with We Lie With Death which I think I’ve probably listened to about 40/50% already and enjoying it very much.  From my other forthcoming books this week I have three books to choose from.  Witherward by Hannah Matthewson, The Sanatorium by Sarah Pearse and The Echo Wife by Sarah Galley.  Plus, I have a forthcoming SPFBO book that I will be posting about next weekend.

Reviews Posted since last Sunday:

  1. The Library of the Dead  by TL Huchu
  2. The Iron Raven by Julie Kagawa
  3. The Wife Upstairs by Rachel Hawkins
  4. Darkness Forged by Matt Larkin

Forthcoming Reviews:

What’ve you been up to the past week?

    I’m curious to read your review of The Moonsteel Crown, I have an eARC but haven’t started it yet. I’m also curious about The Sanitarium, which sounds really good. The Echo Wife was fantastic! Hope you have a good week, Lynn:-)

    • @lynnsbooks

      I’m reading the Santarium now and boy does it get off to a very quick start.
      Lynn 😀

    Sounds like a great reading week. Hope this one is as well! Happy reading 😊

    I hope you get to read The Sanatorium! I haven’t seen too many reviews yet, but it’s waiting in the wings! I’ll probably get to The Echo Wife soon though, and Moonsteel Crown if I can squeeze it in.

    • @lynnsbooks

      Yeah, the Sanatorium has got off to a very quick start. Hopefully I’ll read a lot more tonight and finish it for Sunday.
      Lynn 😀

    Looking forward to your thoughts on The Sanatorium as so far everything about that book appeals to me.
    I’d like to read something by Sarah Gailey. Upright Women Wanted caught my eye ages ago but as usual I haven’t got around to it yet 😀

    • @lynnsbooks

      I hope you get a chance to read Gailey. Would be interested on your thoughts on Upright Women Wanted.

    Sounds like a productive week, Lynn. Mine was a a very quiet and cold one! I finished my thoroughly enjoyable re-read of Ivanhoe by Sir Walter Scott and now I am reading the romantic suspense Madam, Will You Talk? by Mary Stewart. Take care and happy reading! 🙂

    • @lynnsbooks

      Thanks Jessica, let’s hope for some improved weather soon.
      Have a good week 😀

    Oddly enough, I long for a break in the weather so I can have a few good ‘spring cleaning’ days. I know that’s weird but I kind of look forward to it every year, getting my motivation back like a bear coming out of hibernation LOL. Hope you have a wonderful week, Lynn!

    • @lynnsbooks

      Nope, not weird, I’m pretty much the same and love getting a good cleaning day in.
      Lynn 😀
