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:

Slowly but surely, just like the tortoise in the race with the hare, I’m making progress.  I’ve started to blog hop.  My reading is going okay although I would have liked to have completed my current read before posting – still time in the day though.  Anyway, this week I read and reviewed The Night They Vanished by Vanessa Savage.  An entertaining thriller.  I’m also two thirds into The House with the Golden Door by Elodie Harper – which I’m hoping to complete this evening.

So, today is a lovely day and we’re about to have a bbq with friends so this will be short and sweet.  I’ve had a good reading week.  Read the final episode in Mark Lawrence’s Book of the Ice – the Girl and the Moon – and it was a fantastic ending.  I’ve started catching up with comments and doing some blog hopping – it will take me a little while to visit everyone and get uptodate but I will do it 😀  I hate the thought of missing a review for a brilliant book – nobody wants that do they!

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.

This week has had a few ups and downs culminating with my dad going into hospital.  It’s a bit of a worrying time to say the least and I don’t think my mind is entirely focused. I’ve completed my SPFBO finalist and started finalist No.8.  I haven’t read any of my review books so need to do some catching up.  Unfortunately Pennyblade was not really working for me so I’ve set it to one side for the moment because clearly it could be related to my mood rather than the content of the book. I am hoping to pick up Seven Deaths of an Empire this week.  Hope you’re all doing well?

This week has been a busy one although I’m not entirely sure why – the time seems to have flown by and I’ve barely had chance to break open my laptop or write up posts, but, I did manage to complete the two books that I wanted to so I’ll take that.  I read my SPFBO finalist and now have three books remaining (one of which I’ve made a start on) and I also read Insomnia which is quite possibly my favourite Pinborough so far and very aptly named because I feel like I suffered some sleeplessness myself whilst reading!  (Mainly due to ‘just one more chapter’ syndrome).  I haven’t managed to post any reviews so the blog may be a little busy this week.
