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.

“Remember remember the fifth of November”

November is here and, although I hate to say it there are now only 7 weeks till Christmas – ahhhhhhhhhhh!  Okay, nobody panic, 7 weeks = 49 days (I can do maths) 49 days seems like a long way away doesn’t it.  Lets stick with 49, a strangely satisfying number.

I’ve had a busy week this week but not in terms of books – I’ve only managed to read one of my planned books – The Nine by Tracy Townsend – which is really good and I highly recommend.  Expertly plotted, great characters, dark urban fantasy, downright creepy  and set in a world that gives me Dickensian vibes.

Anyway, hope you all had a good week.

  1. The Nine by Tracy Townsend
