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 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:

This week I feel I’ve been getting back into the swing of things.  I feel like my reading is also getting back on track.  Basically, I lost my reading mojo a little over late December/early January so I’ve put down the books I was reading and tried some different styles to freshen things up a little – a factory reset if you will and I will return to those books soon.  So, my reading has been picking up, I completed and reviewed Rachel Hawkin’s Restless Girls.  I liked it but I think the ending took me by surprise a little.  I also read and loved A Flicker in the Dark by Stacy Willingham – my review will be up tomorrow – and I started A River Enchanted by Rebecca Ross.  This is maybe slightly slower than I anticipated, I’m almost a third in but its an easy read and I’m keen to see what’s going on in the enchanted Isle of Cadence.

Books read this week:

Next Week’s Reads:

I’m hoping to complete  A River Enchanted by Rachel Ross and make a start on Echo by Thomas Olde Heuvelt.  I also can’t deny that The Great Witch of Brittany by Louisa Morgan is not so much calling me as positively shouting my name right about now – so who knows, I might swap things around.

Reviews Posted since last week:

  1. The Maid by Nita Prose
  2. Reckless Girls by Rachel Hawkins

Outstanding reviews:

A Flicker in the Dark by Stacy Willingham

    I’m dying to start The Great Witch of Brittany too! I have been a restless reader lately, starting multiple books trying to find “the one”, and I think think I finally found it. I just started The Violence and I’m hooked😁

    • @lynnsbooks

      Ooh,I remember seeing the Violence. Will eagerly await your review for that one then.
      Lynn 😀

    I have really fell behind on my reviewing too! I hope your reset goes well and that we both get back into the review flow. Take care and happy reading. 🙂

    • @lynnsbooks

      Yes, let’s hope that reset kickstarts us both into a new blogging and reading year.

    Hi there Lynn! It really sometimes is a good idea to put a current read aside for a bit and just do a palette cleanser.

    A flicker in the Dark has an intriguing cover. Will watch out for your review.

    Have a good week and happy reading!

    • @lynnsbooks

      Yes, that’s exactly what I needed, a palette cleanser.
      Hope you have a good weekend too with lots of excellent and gripping reads.
      Lynn 😀

    I like your definition of the “factory reset” as a way of getting out of a reading slump: it’s true that trying some different roads often leads to new energy 🙂

    • @lynnsbooks

      Yes, definitely. I like to read a varied set of books but sometimes I just have to go for a good old thriller or cosy mystery. It usually helps me out of a rut.
