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

This week has been fairly quiet.  I read three books and also made more progress on a Darker Shade of Magic.  I’ve done some more catching up with blogging and blog hopping and slowly but surely I’m making progress.  In fact I like this slowly slowly approach – it’s definitely less stressful (if I’ve not caught up with you yet – I will be doing so very soon :D).  So, what did I read.  I finished The Drowned City by KJ Maitland.  I also completed my SPFBO book Black Stone Heart by Michael R Fletcher.  And, finally I managed to squeeze in a book I was keen to get to that was a bit off plan – although not really – psychological horror Such Pretty Things by Lisa Heathfield. 

Next Week

Well, I quite enjoyed mood reading this last week – one of my books was very dark fantasy, one historical fiction and one horror/psychological.  I mean all the books are on my review list so it’s all getting me to the same end eventually.  With that in mind this week.  Well, I’ll be reading more from A Darker Shade of Magic, I’m also starting my first Discworld book, part of my Around the Discworld in 41 books – that I’m joining with Louise over at Lou’s Book Stuff.  On top of that, in terms of review books I’d like to pick up Mirrorland and make a start on the Two Faced Queen by Nick Martell which I’m also excited after reading positive reviews already.  Finally, I will be reading one of my next SPFBO books.  Okay, that seems very ambitious, but, in my defence I also appreciate that this probably won’t all happen – gotta have plans though:

    I’m looking forward to all those reviews, and I’m also going to be reading Mirrorland this month (I hope!) Have a good week, Lynn!

    I am pleased to hear you had a quiet week and that the slowly, slowly approach is working on the blogging front! I look forward to reading your full thought on The Drowned City as you know I am a fan of Karen Maitland and of course I REALLY hope you enjoy your first Discworld read! My week was very busy on the run down to the end of term. When I had time/energy I have been reading the young adult science-fiction Destined by Jordan Pinckney and Will Lenzen Jr. Take care and happy reading in the coming week, Lynn. 🙂

    I’m really looking forward to your thoughts on the Two Faced Queen! By the way, I think I think you’ve read the Kushiel books with Imriel? The relationship between the main character Michael and Serena has me wondering where the series might be going with it. I’m getting Imriel/Sidonie vibes from the two, but I don’t know if that’s just wishful thinking on my part 😛

    I’m looking forward to your review on Murder of Crows by Anne Bishop, which I’d liked a lot in the past, and The Drowned City by KJ Maitland which has an awesome cover… And also the Two Faced Queen, for which I saw a very good spotlight on but somehow have not been able to commit to it.

    I hope you enjoy your first Discworld read! What are you starting with?
