Last week simply flew by for me, I don’t know why.  I’ve finally managed to update my SPFBO challenge – and today will post about my next five books which I’ve already started to read.  I went off plan a little bit with my reading schedule.  I did read one of my scheduled books but then I went and read one of my TBR books which I thoroughly enjoyed.  Here’s what I read last week:

  1. The Stone in the Skull by Elizabeth Bear
  2. A Matter of Blood by Sarah Pinborough

This week I’m hoping to undergo some catching up with review books that I’ve got a little behind with and so I’m thinking of reading:

  1. Spellslinger and Spellslinger 2: Shadowblack by Sebastien De Castell
  2. Hero Risen, Seeds of Destiny by Andy Livingstone

Upcoming reviews:

  1. Deadlands: Boneyard by Seanan McGuire
  2. The Stone in the Skull by Elizabeth Bear
  3. The Crow Garden by Alison Littlewood
  4. The Beautiful Ones by Silvia Moreno-Garcia
  5. A Matter of Blood by Sarah Pinborough

Hope you have a lot of good reading to look forward to.

Let me know what you’re reading.

Another good week, hope you’ve all had fun.  I’ve not read everything I hoped but I think I was being a bit ambitious.  I have a few reviews to write, I also have an update for my last batch of SPFBO books and need to also outline my next batch.  My reads last week:

  1. Deadlands by Seanan McGuire
  2. The Crow Garden by Alison Littlewood

A bit ambitious maybe, but lets just see how it goes.

This week I’m hoping to read:

  1. The Stone in the Skull by Elizabeth Bear
  2. The Tiger’s Daughter by K Arsenault Rivera

Hope you have a lot of good reading to look forward to.

Let me know what you’re reading.

I love this time of year, I have to confess, the colours of the trees, the falling leaves, there seems to be a certain scent in the air and the nights start to draw in.  It’s my time of year. I realise it’s not everyone’s favourite time of the year but for me it just feels like the season of promise.  That probably sounds odds because of the cold weather and the shorter days but I love the seasons and Autumn and Winter are my favourites – perhaps because I’m a December child.  Anyway, I thought I’d just get that out of the way because I was feeling all whimsical.  I’ve had a lovely week, I have no grumbles and I hope you all have too.  I’ve already had a monthly round up post so this week my wrap up is purely to look at my potential reads for the next week which will hopefully be:

  1. The Tiger’s Daughter by K Arsenault Rivera
  2. Deadlands by Seanan McGuire
  3. The Crow Garden by Alison Littlewood

A bit ambitious maybe, but lets just see how it goes.

Hope you have a lot of good reading to look forward to.

Let me know what you’re reading.

Hope you’ve all had a good week. I’ve been a bit busy as we just sold our house and so this involved lots of packing and sorting out.  In terms of reading, well maybe not quite to plan but not too bad.

This week I’ve read:

  1. Sea of Rust by C Robert Cargill, which was brilliant; and
  2. The Rules of Magic by Alice Hoffman. I love Alice Hoffman and was so excited to pick this one up that I confess I bumped it up the list. And it was worth it.

Next week I’m hoping to pick up:

  1. The Last Dog on Earth by Adrian J Walker
  2. A Pocketful of Crows by Joanne M Harris; and
  3. The Tiger’# Daughter by K Arsenault Rivera

Hope you’ve all had a good week.

Let me know what your reading plans are.

I’ve had another busy week and weekend.  Changes at work have meant I’ve had little free time and this weekend apart from a party on Saturday evening we’ve been moving our daughter into her university accommodation and also spent all Sunday visiting relatives – so the week has flown and I’ve had very little reading time, plus I’m shattered now!  I did manage to finish An Alchemy of Masques and Shadows which was just excellent and I’m now reading and enjoying the other two books I was hoping to finish: Godsgrave and Sea of Rust.

What I’ve read:

  1. An Alchemy of Masques and Shadows by Curtis Craddock:

What I’m hoping to finish next week:

  1. Godsgrave by Jay Kristoff
  2. Sea of Rust by C Robert Cargill

 

 

Hope you all had a good week.  Let me know what you’re reading.
