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:

And June is here.  How on earth did that happen so quickly.  I’ve not done as much reading or blogging this week.  Still pushing through my review books and managed to write up three reviews which feels like progress to a certain extent.  I’ve been busy in the garden and still have lots of projects which are keeping me away from books and the blog.  This week I read Wendy Darling – a dark take on the Peter Pan story by AC Wise.  I’ve read the first quarter of First Law, my buddy read with The Book Forager – which I’m loving, shouldn’t be a surprise as I’ve enjoyed everything I’ve picked up so far by Joe Abercrombie.  I’ve also started For the Wolf by Hannah Whitten, it’s still early days but so far I’m having Uprooted vibes.

Complete For the Wolf by Hannah Whitten, continue with my buddy read of First Law and hopefully start Stranded, which is the first SPFBO book.

  1. The Light Fantastic by Terry Pratchett
  2. The Ikessar Falcon by KS Villoso
  3. Near the Bone by Christina Henry

Forthcoming Reviews:

    I’m really curious about Wendy Darling, and I’m hoping to start For the Wolf soon too. Hard to believe it’s June, not only that but it’s nearly the second week in June!

      I know. I’m sure that reading must somehow speed up time!!

    I also got Uprooted vibes from For the Wolf. I initially thought it would be more along the lines of The Girl in Red by Christina Henry but it really wasn’t. I think it dragged out a bit in parts but overall I liked it.

      That’s good to know. I wouldn’t say it’s fast paced so far but it’s okay and I’m not struggling to want to pick it up.

    I have Wendy, Darling on my TBR and it sounds so good. For the Wolf and Stranded also seems really nice.

    Have a good week Lynn, I haven’t seen you around much lately!

    3 reviews definitely sounds like progress! Looks like you have some interesting reads for your week ahead.

    Looking forward to your thoughts on Wendy, Darling. I got a copy last week, and it’s gorgeous…I love the sound of a dark Peter Pan retelling, hope it’s better than my last one!

    I’m super curious about Stranded. And I see a dog!
