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:

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.

I’ve had a lovely week.  Good weather and good company.  I’ve finished reading at least the first 30% of my third batch of SPFBO books and so I’m now ready to make some decisions about which books I intend to continue reading.  Hopefully I will post a couple of updates soon, unfortunately, both these posts will involve cuts which is always unpleasant but it’s the nature of the competition and in happier news I’ve a number of books to carry forward that I’m very much enjoying, so, more news about those books soon too.  This week I read and was absolutely bowled over by Daisy Darker by Alice Feeney.  Short spoiler prior to review –  brilliant.  I seriously think this is one of my favourite books read so far this year.

Next week I need to continue with my catch up of review books.  My reading has definitely slowed down at the moment which is more to do with the time of year and increased socialising than the lack of desire to read or the quality of the books.  So, this week I’d really like to pick up The Retreat by Sarah Pearse and Priest of Crowns by Peter McLean.

This is my first weekly wrap up for a few weeks.  I’ve had a two week break while family and friends have been visiting/holidaying and this past week been catching up with lots of chores.  I now need to catch back up with my reading and blog hopping to see what lovely posts I’ve missed.  I did manage to start my second batch of SPFBO books.  I’ve read a review book that I’ll be posting about soon and over the past few days I read Ronald Malfi’s Black Mouth which I loved.  Somehow I seem to have given myself a stiff neck which has been really painful – don’t know what or how I’ve done this but I hope it goes soon as it’s really unpleasant!  Anyway, enough of this.  Onto the past week and the week ahead:

Next week I’m hoping to start catching up with the review books I unfortunately got behind with in July and also make a start on some August books.  I’ll also be continuing with my SPFBO books.  Here are a few of my choices:

Obviously, I’m not suggesting that I’ll read six books!  This is just a selection of what I’m looking forward to.  Have you read any of these?

I’ve been absent a couple of weeks.  Still been reading but been very busy personally and not had much time to blog.  I did manage to read Daughter of Redwinter by Ed McDonald which I also reviewed.  I’ve finished reading the first batch of SPFBO books (I’ve read at least 30% of all the books from my first batch and tomorrow I’ll be posting my second batch of books, after which I will begin making cuts.  Not the favourite part of the competition but it is what it is.  I’ve also completed Before They are Hanged by Joe Abercrombie which was my latest buddy read with the lovely Bookforager. I’m also 40% into a review book that I’ll be posting about soon.

Next Week’s Reads:

Next week I’m hoping to read a couple of review books, Upgrade by Blake Crouch and Just Like Home by Sarah Gailey.  I’ll also be making a start on my next five SPFBO books.

  1. Hidden Pictures by Jason Rekulak
  2. The Bay by Allie Reynolds
  3. The Path of Thorns by AG Slatter
  4. Daughter of Redwinter by Ed McDonald
