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:

Books read this week:

Well, I mentioned I was having a little break – now I’m back.  I’m still listening to Babel by RF Kuang.  I also mentioned this isn’t a book that’s easy to power through. I’m about halfway through and I have mixed feelings.  On the one hand it’s a joy, well written, interesting, informative, packed with intelligence.  On the other hand, well, there’s not a great deal going on at this point. I’m still reading All of Our Demise by Christine Herman and Amanda Foody which is only going slowly because I decided to press on with my SPFBO books – the ones I’ve decided to carry forward.  I’ve read three, I’m half way through the fourth and so hopeful to have read all my potential SFs by the end of the week.  Updates and reviews will soon follow but, fingers crossed, I should be exchanging SFs with my partners the Critiquing Chemist very soon.

Next Week’s Reads:

So, complete the two books above and then take my pick of the goodies below.

Books read this week:

So it’s official.  Monday is the new Sunday.  Okay, late again.  A busy week.  I think my problem this week is trying to read too many books at once on top of all the normal ‘life’ events.  I’m about 20% into my listen of Babel by RF Kuang, I’m enjoying this one but will say it’s not going to be a book that you’ll race through.  I started Ithaca but have left that to one side for now as I don’t think it was grabbing me which could just be a mood thing.  I’ve carried on with All of Our Demise by Christine Herman and Amanda Foody which is reading well so far.  I also picked up Phil William’s latest book, The Dyer Street Punk Witches which I think is my favourite of his books so far – review to follow very soon.  On a SPFBO note I will be posting three posts during the remainder of the month which will detail which books are rolling forward from the three batches I’ve picked up and also which books will be cut.  Watch this space.

Next Week’s Reads:

Well, I need to complete some of my reads but I’d also like to read through the books that I’ve chosen to roll forward for SPFBO and of course I have review books (what’s a girl to do).  Some maybe other reads:

Wow, is this another late post.  Why, yes, yes it is.  What is wrong with me!  Anyway I’ll make this short and sweet.  As per my plans last week I have started The First Binding, it’s a night time read and I think it’s a long book so this could take a while but so far so good.  I’ve also started to listen to Babel by RF Kuang and again, I think this will be a long read and, although I’m less than 10% in I would say that this is an ode to words.  I’ve also started All of Our Demise by Christine Herman and Amanda Foody.  Quite unplanned I also read and had a lot of fun with Liar of Red Valley by Walter Goodwater.

Next Week’s Reads:

Well, I need to complete The First Binding by RR Virdi,All of Our Demise by Christine Herman and Amanda Foody and Babel by RF Kuang, but I recognise that these might be slightly longer books so at the same time I might try and pick up Ithaca by Claire North or Signal to Noise by Silvia Morena Garcia.

Hope everyone is well.  I realise this post is late of course but we had a busy weekend with my sister-in-law coming to stay and no blogging.  Last week I managed to post my review for Old Country which was a very creepy read.  This week I managed to complete The Retreat by Sarah Pearse and I also read Small Angels by Lauren Owen which was a gothic tale of a haunted forest.

Next Week’s Reads:

I’m lining up The First Binding by RR Virdi and All of Our Demise by Christine Herman and Amanda Foody.  I’ve also managed to pick up an audio copy of Babel by RF Kuang so will be listening to that one too.

Another busy but lovely week.  I’ve increased my reading a little and I’m doing okay with blogging but not quite back to my usual content and blog hopping.  This week I went off plan a little although I was still reading review books so it’s all good.  I read a creepy horror book called Old Country by Matt Query and Harrison Query.  It definitely gave me a little bit of the heebie jeebies.  I’ve also started The Retreat by Sarah Pearse.  I’m kind of on the fence so far.  It’s not bad but at the moment it lacks tension (about 40% into the read).

Next Week’s Reads:

Hopefully complete The Retreat and then pick up Priest of Crowns by Peter McLean.
