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:

I’ve been somewhat absent on the blog in the past couple of weeks.  Long story short I’ve been helping my parents out a little and family issues have just taken over.  Touch wood (or my dense noggin) things seem to be improving so I’m hoping that things will finally calm down and I can get back to reading and blogging.  It has been a strange  few months for sure and every time I get back on track something comes along to upset the apple cart.  Fingers crossed for the rest of the year will be nice to me. In reading news I’ve finished my Gwynne read.  I’ll be reviewing that tomorrow.  All I can say is WOW.  This book = mind blown.  I am undone.

Books read this week:

The Hunger of the Gods by John Gwynne.  Literally, I beg you to read this series!  The HotG has got to be not only one of the best reads so far this year but quite possibly one of my favourite top ten reads ever.  Seriously. I don’t joke about these things.  Just, please, pretty please with a cherry on top, if you love fantasy you simply must pick up this series.

    It’s so hard to have your routine disrupted, but sometimes you just have to get through it. I hope things settle down soon, and I’m eager to read The Shadow of the Gods too😁

    Gwynne’s new series is not simply narratively awesome, but it also enjoys some *gorgeous* covers I cannot take my eyes away from… 🙂

    Yes, yes! I have my grubby paws on Nettle and Bone too, and I’m one-third in and it is amazing. It’s been so long I read such a great SFF book, I was starting to give up on the genre! *fingers crossed* and let’s see if our ratings match! 🙂

    Okay with a recommendation like that I may have to try that series! And I need to read some LAwrence again as well.

    I know how difficult family issues can be. Hope everything works out for the better.

    Glad things are starting to improve a little Lynn, I hope your dad is better now. Can’t wait to see what you make of the Kingfisher book, I’ve seen so many good reviews around for it recently. I think it may end up being my first read from that author too.
