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 this week.  I finished the SPFBO competition.  My final read was The Lost War by Justin Lee Anderson, which was coincidentally also the winner of the competition.  My review is here.  I also completed The Girl and the Mountain by Mark Lawrence which was a very good second instalment and I enjoyed that it took us back to a world that Lawrence fans are already familiar with.  I’ve made a start on John Gwynne’s The Shadow of the Gods which has pretty much already grabbed my attention.  I’ve also made a start on The Helm of Midnight by Marina Lostetter which is interesting. And, I seriously need to catch up with some reviews so hopefully I’ll manage to get three of four out this week.  Finally, I’m hoping to get back on track with blogging and blog hopping and see what I’ve been missing out on.

Next Week

Complete The Shadow of the Gods and The Helm of Midnight.  Also make a start on the second Discworld book and maybe make a start on The Wolf Den by Elodie Harper.

    You have so many awesome books coming up!! I really want to check out one of the Terry Pratchett books, so can’t wait to see what you think of those!

    Congrats to Justin, thats amazing! I’m reading both Helm of Midnight and The Shadow of the Gods soon, so I’ll be curious to see what you think😁

    I just finished Ariadne and really enjoyed it even though it is so tragic. Happy reading!

    I hope you enjoyed Ariadne, which I am really curious about! It’s nice to do a roundup post once in a while, although weekly is too frequent for me.

    I haven’t read LAwrence in a while since I started with my first book of his a year or so ago. Hmm… and I kinda want to read Pratchett at some point!

    Curious to see what you’ll make of The Helm of Midnight, I thought it was on the slow and dark side and after that, I definitely need something more energetic and fast-paced! Glad to hear the new John Gwynne is grabbing your attention already, because that was one of the candidates for my next read 🙂

    Well done for completing your reading for the SPFBO competition – I never know how you manage it all! 😁 Also looks like you have done lots of other good reading. Good luck with catching up on reviews and getting back to blog hopping. Take care and happy reading in the coming week. 🙂
