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:

Haha – this week I had the sudden lightbulb moment that no matter how much I try to forge ahead I will always be chasing my tail (just to be clear – I don’t have a tail!).  So, I just need to chill I think and come to terms with the fact that I will always have four or five books waiting to be reviewed – and in fact, that’s a good thing in some respects because I’ll always have content so, yay.  This week I’ve read two books – the first SPFBO book from batch 2 and I went off plan a little (but still chose a review book) – Meet Me In Another Life by Catriona Silvey. I’m still slowly making my way through Empire’s Ruin by Brian Staveley which really is a book to savour – it makes me happy reading this book because it’s so good.

I’m aiming to read The 22 Murders of Madison May by Max Barry and  The Retreat by Elisabeth de Mariaffi.  I need to get back on track with my buddy reads too as I’ve been a little lacking in both of those recently.

    I wish I had four books waiting to be reviewed, lol. I’m always panicking that I won’t read fast enough to have content! I just finished Final Girls and it was good but not my favorite Hendrix book. I need to sort my feelings out today and write a review😁

      True about the content. I only used to post about twice a week!

    Hi Lynn! I need to sort out my ARC’s a bit this week. I don’t actually know exactly what is still due. But I’ll get to it. Looking forward to your review of A dark and Secret place, I couldn’t get into it at all! Would love to see what you thought of it

    Have a good week and enjoy chasing your tail!

      I didnt love it tbh. It was ok but needed a better balance – the ending was a bit chaotic and I found it hard to get on with the main character.

    Nice to hear you’re enjoying Empire’s Ruin, I’ve seen it about a bit and been curious.

    These look like some good suspenseful reads.

    • @lynnsbooks

      Yes, I seem to have a few suspense books at the moment.
