Booking Ahead/Weekly Wrap Up

Sunday Post

I’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, I’ve had a busy week, but not in terms of blogging and reading.  I’ve been out in the garden trying to encourage my plants back into life!  Some of them didn’t enjoy the winter very much.  Anyway, apologies because I’ve been very much out of action in terms of blog hopping but will be catching up in the next couple of days.  I’ve also only read one book this week – that being said, what a book!  Wow.  The Last House on Needless Street by Catriona Ward is, well, it takes a little getting used to but then it gets its claws into you and you can’t resist.  Told with three povs – all of them a little unreliable, this took me down a path I didn’t envisage and defied my expectations.  In other news, I’ve started my latest buddy read with Mayri over at the Bookforager.  This month we’re reading A Darker Shade of Magic – another backlist book that I’m happy to finally pick up.

Next Week

Last week was a bit slow in reading terms so I still have The Unbroken by CL Clark which I’m very much looking forward to.  I did step off track a little and started reading The Ladies of The Secret Service which has me hooked already, about a third into this one and really enjoying it.  I also have the final instalment of The Rampart Trilogy in my sights – The FAll of Koli by MR Carey.

I’m also hoping to make a start on my next SPFBO book that I just posted about here.


(These plans may be slightly ambitious given I only completed one book last week – still can’t blame a girl for having big ideas)

    Can’t wait to read your review of The Last House. It’s not out in the US until September but I’m so tempted to read it early! And I just finished Koli!!!😭😭😭

    • @lynnsbooks

      Last House is very unusual, and very good. Not sure I knew what to expect but it took me by storm.

    Although you only finished one book, it does sound like it and the other books you’ve started are really good ones. I haven’t read as much as I would have liked this week either, but yesterday I did finish The Testament of Loki by Joanne Harris. Take care and happy reading in the coming week, Lynn 🙂

    The Fall of Koli is a great conclusion to an engaging trilogy, so I’m eager to read your comments about it. Happy reading!!! 🙂

    • @lynnsbooks

      That’s good to hear. I’m looking forward to it.
      Lynn 😀

    I’m picking up The Fall of Koli this week too! Happy Reading!

    • @lynnsbooks

      Fingers crossed that the Rampart Trilogy ends on a good note.

    Sounds like your reading or will be reading some good stuff! I hope they all turn out well.

    Black Stone Heart certainly looks good!

    • @lynnsbooks

      Yes, Black Stone Heart certainly seems to be receiving positive reviews. I’ve got some good reads due.

    Finishing Secret Circus…Unbroken might be my next read, I think!

    • @lynnsbooks

      Look forward to your thoughts on Secret Circus. I’m halfway through and enjoying it.

    Glad to see Bishop in the future. 🙂
    I don’t blame you for gardening! I’ll hope to get out there soon myself. Ah, spring! Have a wonderful week, Lynn.

    I hope you like The Unbroken, I just finished it this weekend and thought it was very good, but a bit of slow read with a lot of politics.

    • @lynnsbooks

      Hi, I’ve not started it yet. I have heard that it can be a bit heavy going, and I can’t deny it’s making me hesitate a little to pick it up as my reading is very moody at the moment. I will definitely read it soon though.
      Lynn 😀
