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:

I had a busy week, the weather was good, I did a bit of socialising, some gardening, some experimental cooking and went a little off plan with my reading – but not totally.  I managed a couple of reviews (not as many as I’d liked) but I also posted my first update post for SPFBO shortly followed by my next batch of books.  This week I completed The Final Girl’s Support Group by Grady Hendrix – which was great – I went off schedule a little and read The Past is Red by Catherynne M Valente which is thought provoking, emotional, beautiful, hopeful and dreadful at the same time.  I’m also reading The Empire’s Ruin by Brian Staveley, I’m taking my time a little with this one because it’s so good I just don’t want to rush it, I want to savour the writing, the world and the characters.

Complete the Empire’s Ruin by Brian Staveley.   Next I’m aiming to read The 22 Murders of Madison May by Max Barry and maybe The Retreat by Elisabeth de Mariaffi (although She Who Became the Sun is calling to me as well at the moment so we’ll see.  I’ll be picking up the fourth Discworld soon and also continuing with First Law which I’m loving..

    I’m so glad you loved Hendrix’s book, I’ll be reading it this week. And I have a copy of The Past is Red, maybe I’ll squeeze that in too. Hope you have a good week!

      Hope you had a great weekend too. I really liked the Hendrix book – in fact possibly even more than the Book Club.
      Lynn 😀

    Sounds like a busy but productive and nice week, Lynn, and we all need to go off our reading plans just a bit, now and again. 😉 Take care and happy reading in the coming week, especially of the next Discworld book you have lined up. I have to admit #4 Sourcery is not one of my favourites, although still good fun. 😅

    • @lynnsbooks

      Well,so far I’m enjoying the Discworld but I’m not absolutely loving it. I did enjoy No.3 with Granny Weatherwax but I’m still waiting for that moment when I become enamoured – perhaps not with book No.4 but I’m determined to carry on and complete this.
      Hope you have a good week.
      Lynn 😀

    I think many of us are going to be reading Final Girl Support Group this month!

    • @lynnsbooks

      I really liked it – it’s such a good idea and I loved recognising the horror movies that were being referred to.

    I am looking forward to your reviews of the new Grady Hendrix and Max Barry books!! Honestly, I need to know how scary they are 😂 I am still disturbed by the The Southern Book Clubs Guide to Slaying Vampires… 😬

    • @lynnsbooks

      I enjoyed the Hendrix very much but it is a play on horror movies and whilst it’s not particularly too blood soaked it is still horror 😀

        LOL I better stay away from it then 🤣
