Booking Ahead/Weekly/Monthly 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 last year 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:

Last week:

The end of May is nigh so my weekly wrap up will also include a short monthly update.  I have been busy this week again.  I’ve done quite a bit of reading and I’ve managed to squeeze in three reviews.  Of course, when you’re reading just as many books you never quite catch up.  I went off plan a little but still reading review books so it’s all good.  This week I’ve read three books and started two more.  I read and already reviewed The Priest of Gallows by Peter McLean – spoiler alert – it was very good.  I’ve also read and enjoyed Day Zero by C Robert Cargill and Near the Bone by Christina Henry.  I’ve started my buddy read of The Blade Itself by Joe Abercrombie and I’m about a third of the way through the audio version of Hyde by Craig Russell.

Hopefully complete Hyde by Craig Russell.  I have three other books in mind, not that I anticipate reading them all, just I haven’t decided which to read first.  The Kingdoms by Natasha Pulley, For the Wolf by Hannah Whitten and Wendy Darling by AC Wise.  Has anyone read any of these yet?  Any thoughts??  Next Tuesday I will also be posting the first four SPFBO books that I’ll be reading this month.

  1. The Lights of Prague by Nicole Jarvis
  2. The Wolf Den by Elodie Harper
  3. The Priest of Gallows by Peter McLean
  1. Murder of Crows by Anne Bishop
  2. The Ikessar Falcon by KS Villoso
  3. The Light Fantastic by Terry Pratchett
  4. Near the Bone by Christina Henry
  5. Day Zero by C Robert Cargill

Last week:

This week seems to have flown by in an almighty rush – May feels like it’s escaping me completely.  I’ve continued to catch up blogging, slowly but surely.  I’ve also read three books this week.  I finished The Wolf Den by Elodie Harper, I also finished The Light Fantastic by Terry Pratchett and I read The Lights of Prague by Nicole Jarvis.  And I posted a couple of reviews.  Although I think I’ll perhaps have to just have a very busy week and try and catch up because I still have five reviews to post!

Hopefully complete The Helm of Midnight and read The Broken God by Gareth Hanrahan.  I’m also hoping to start Hyde by Craig Russell which I picked up for audio.

  1. Later by Stephen King
  2. The Blacktongue Thief by Christopher Buehlman
  1. Murder of Crows by Anne Bishop
  2. The Ikessar Falcon by KS Villoso
  3. The Light Fantastic by Terry Pratchett
  4. The Wolf Den by Elodie Harper
  5. The Lights of Prague by Nicole Jarvis

Last week:

This week, I was a bit busy so a lot of my best laid plans went askew.  Consequently I’ve still got lots of catching up to do this forthcoming week.  In terms of reading I read The Shadow of the Gods by John Gwynne – which was brilliant.  Review to follow on Monday.  I also completed the Ikessar Falcon by KS Villoso.  I started this some time ago but then put it down and got distracted.  So, I decided to start it again.  This is a very character focused read indeed which is something I love.  I also made a start on my second Pratchett Discworld book and read the first third.  I still need to finish The Helm of Midnight by Marina Lostetter and I’ve also started the Wolf Den by Elodie Harper. 

 

Complete The Helm of Midnight and The Wolf Den. I think I’d also like to make a start on one of my other review books.  Perhaps Day Zero by C Robert Cargill.  And of course continue my Discworld adventure.

Haha – still playing catch up.  I’m doing quite a bit of visiting blogs but still have updating on my own blog to get round to.  I’ve read one book this week, The Fall of Koli and also made a good start on The Drowned City by KJ Maitland which is proving good so far.  I’m about 60% in to my SPFBO book and by the end of today should be around 50% into my buddy read, A Darker Shade of Magic. I also posted an interview with husband and wife writing team Ilona Andrews this week which focused on their latest release from the Kate Daniel’s world.  Blood Heir is the first in the Aurelia Ryder series and got off to an excellent start.  My review is here and the interview is here.

Next Week

Complete The Drowned City by KJ Maitland and make a start on The Unbroken by CL Clark.

I’m also hoping to complete my next SPFBO book that I just posted about here and start the next one which I shall be posting about soon.

Another busy week this week.  I’ve made a start on blog hopping which is going well and I’m catching up with reviews also.  I need to catch up with comments and then hopefully I’m all up to date with only two outstanding reviews to post.  I managed to complete the Ladies of the Secret Circus by Constance Sayers (which I loved) and I’m a third of the way through The Fall of Koli.  I’ve also read a quarter of my buddy read book, A Darker Shade of Magic by VE Schwab.

Next Week

Will almost be a reiteration of last week.  Complete The Fall of Kolia and start The Unbroken by CL Clark.

I’m also hoping to make a start on my next SPFBO book that I just posted about here.
