Is it just me or are the weeks flying by at breakneck speed.  I cannot believe it’s the 9th February and I feel so busy at the moment that instead of doing a few things very well, I’m doing a lot of things very badly!  So, I’ve only read one book this week, but it was quite slow going for some reason.  I’m doing all sorts of projects but I’m stuck in that trap where you start one thing, then realise you have another couple of things and you keep going from one to the other.  Consequently everywhere is a bit of a pigsty, there are incomplete gardening projects, unfinished house projects and unread books, plus my blog hopping has been dire.  I can do better, lol.  At least I’m still trying to eat healthy and exercise a little more each day.  So, here’s my reading this week:

  1. The Sisters Grimm by Menna van Praag

TheSisters

What I’m reading next week:

  1. Crownbreaker by Sebastien deCastell
  2. The Wolf of Oren- Yaro by K. S. Villoso
  3. Starsight by Brandon Sanderson (audio)

Upcoming Reviews:

  1. King of the Road by RS Belcher
  2. Queenlayer by Sebastien DeCastell
  3. The Absinthe Earl by Sharon Lynn Fisher
  4. Deeplight by Frances Hardinge
  5. King of Assassins by RJ Barker
  6. The Sisters Grimm by Menna van Praag

I’d love to know what you’re reading this week.

Weekly Wrap Up : 9th June 2019

Again, I’ve missed a weekly wrap up and so I am combining two weeks in one post.  Actually I quite like doing a twofer so perhaps that’s what I’ll do in future – although I’m still torn because the weekly wrap up does keep me more focused and on track.  I’ll see – the jury’s still out.  Anyway, my reading has been very slow – in fact I had about four days of no reading whatsoever.  We’ve been travelling and also spending time with friends so reading has taken something of a backseat.  In fairness, slowing down my reading has meant I’m catching up on reviews – so it’s swings and roundabouts.  Hopefully my reading will be back to par next week.  So, what have I read since my last update:

My books:

  1. The Red Stained Wings by Elizabeth Bear
  2. The Fall by Tracy Townsend (RTF)

Next scheduled reads:

  1. Nocturna by Maya Motayne
  2. Across the Void by SK Vaughn
  3. Limited Wish by Mark Lawrence
  4. The Whisper Man by Alex North

Upcoming reviews

  1. King of the Road by RS Belcher
  2. Council by Snorri Kristjansson
  3. Fire Touched by Patricia Briggs
  4. The Fall by Tracy Townsend

I’d love to know what you’re reading this week.

Hi everyone.  For those of you having to put up with the Beast from the East I hope it hasn’t been too bad a week.  I must say I’ve seen some pretty funny pictures on twitter with polar bears stood outside cars and the like.  I suppose you have to do whatever to make it easier.  Anyway, I’ve not read much this week.  I did read the fabulous Kin which I should have a review of up tomorrow – vikings and murder mystery – what’s not to like.  We did watch Citizen Kane – I didn’t love it as much as I hoped to.  It was okay.  We also started watching Breaking Bad again because we never completed the series. And, the beauty of slowing down with my reading means that I’m catching up with reviews.  So, to my books:

Books read:

  1. Kin by Snorri Kristjansson – which I loved.

Next Week’s Reads:

  1. Planetfall by Emma Newman
  2. The Bitter Twins by Jen Williams – I’m already 30% into this one.  It took me a little while to pick up the threads but I’m back on track now
  3. Master Assassins by Robert VS Redick – I’m about 50% into this one and loving it.
  4. Looking Glass by Andrew Mayne

Upcoming reviews:

  1. Starborn by Lucy Hounsom
  2. Envy of Angels by Matt Wallace
  3. The Chrysalids by John Wyndham (Vintage Sci Fi book)
  4. Semiosis by Sue Burke
  5. Between the Blade and the Heart by Amanda Hocking
  6. Kin by Snorri Kristjansson

I’d love to know what you’re reading this week.
