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:

Books read this week:

Okay, so this week, I can’t deny, I’ve been having a purely good time going out and socialising which means I haven’t read as many books as I’d hoped.  However I did read The Bay by Allie Reynolds which is another little cracker.  I’ve also managed to continue with my buddy read of Joe Abercrombie’s Before They Are Hanged which I can’t deny I’m loving.

TheBay

Next Week’s Reads:

Well, complete the Abercrombie book because I’m so close.  Also continue with last week’s plans, Daughter of Redwinter by Ed McDonald and Sons of Darkness by Gourav  Mohanty.

  1. Land of the Dead by Stephen Hopstaken by Melissa Prusi
  2. The Echo Man by Sam Holland
  3. Stringers by Chris Panatier

Books read this week:

I’m still playing catch up with review books, comments and blog hopping but I am making steady progress so I’m quite pleased with that to be honest.  This week I completed The Grief of Stones by Katherine Addison.  I’ve also managed to fit in some other fantastic reads.  I read the The Seawomen by Chloe Timms which was a beautifully written, evocative and strong feminist story about breaking free of shackles and expectations.  I then  read Hidden Pictures by Jason Rekulak which was completely addictive and I couldn’t put it down.  Finally, I’m just making my way to the end of The Path of Thorns by AG Slatter – which is absolutely brilliant, seriously, I’m loving this book and unless something goes drastically wrong in the next 20% then this one comes highly recommended.  My books this week have all been amazing which is probably why I packed so much reading in.

Next Week’s Reads:

I’d like to pick up Daughter of Redwinter by Ed McDonald and the Bay by Allie Reynolds.  I’m excited about both of these.  Now, depending on how I get on with those my next book is Sons of Darkness by Gourav  Mohanty – this is also having some early rave reviews but I think it’s a chunkster so I recognise I’ll not be squeezing this in alongside any other books – but I can’t wait to dive into this and the others.

  1. Elektra by Jennifer Saint
  2. The Grief of Stones by Katherine Addison
  3. The Seawomen by Chloe Timms

Books read this week:

This week I read two of my intended books and started another which I’m well underway with.  I’m still catching up on reviews and short of posting two a day it’s going to take me a little while but hopefully I should have another three reviews out next week. I completed Stringers by Chris Panatier and The Echo Man by Sam Holland.  I also made a start on  The Grief of Stones by Katherine Addison.

Next Week’s Reads:

I need to finish The Grief of Stones and than I’ll be picking up The Seawomen by Chloe Timms.  After that, if I get a chance I have a few books to choose from but think I’d like to pick up Hidden Pictures by Jason Rekulak.

  1. Sea of Tranquility by Emily St John Mandel
  2. The Last Stand of Mary Good Crow by Rachel Aaron
  3. Black Tide by KC Jones

This week has been a lovely week and also a little bit lazy so I’ve managed to pack in quite a few books and visit a few blogs.  I’m making good progress and have started to backtrack with my own comments.

Books read this week:

I completed my blog tour book which will be posted on Tuesday.  This is the latest Rachel Aaron book : The Last Stand of Mary Good Crow which I had a very good time with.  Also, as planned, I completed the three books that I outlined last week plus an extra one: The third in the Stoker-Wilde series : Land of the Dead.  I read and loved Sea of Tranquility by Emily St John Mandell.  I picked up Elektra by Jennifer Saint which transported me back to a time of Trojan wars and Greek myth and finally I had an absolute blast with KC Jones Black Tide which is a dark and tentacled day at the beach.  So, I have lots of reviews to post.

Next Week’s Reads:

Well, I have made good progress on the review books I’d got behind with.  I do still have some catching up but I feel a bit more relaxed now I’ve made some inroads.  This week I’m going to read some of my forthcoming review books for June and maybe still try and sneak in one of my books from the catch-up list.

  1. Hide by Kiersten White

This week we went away for a couple of days for a short break which was lovely.  I’m still catching up but my reading has been good this week and I’ve managed to complete two books and I’m halfway through the  third.

Books read this week:

As planned, I completed and reviewed The House with the Golden Door which I really enjoyed.  I’ve also read Hide by Kiersten White and I’m just over 50% into my blog tour book which I’m keen to share more about.
