So, I’ve not been up to too much this week.  My better half has conspired to hurt his back and has been a little bit laid up – he’s getting very bored but these things will take their own sweet time to work out.  I’ve managed to read two books this week and also made an attempt to catch up with with three reviews.  I’m also listening to The Boy on the Bridge and I’m a third way through Ben Galley’s Chasing Graves.

Week ending 14th October:

  1. Charmcaster by Sebastien DeCastell
  2. Soulbinder by Sebastien DeCastell

Next week’s reads:

  1. Chasing Graves by Ben Galley
  2. In the Night Wood by Dale Bailey
  3. Slenderman

Upcoming reviews:

  1. Starborn by Lucy Hounsom
  2. Envy of Angels by Matt Wallace
  3. Noir by Christopher Moore
  4. Record of a Spaceborn Few by Becky Chambers
  5. Dracul by Dacre Stoker
  6. The Tethered Mage by Melissa Caruso
  7. Creatures: The Legacy of Frankenstein by Emma Newman; Tade Thompson; Paul Meloy; Kaaron Warren; Rose Biggin
  8. Charmcaster by Sebastien DeCastell
  9. Soulbinder by Sebastien DeCastell

Also, my giveaway for a copy of Laurence MacNaughton’s No Sleep Till Doomsday is still open so if you’d like to chuck your hat into the ring the giveaway is international, there are two copies available and there are no rules at all so just give me a shout.

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

Weekly Wrap Up : 7th October 2018

I didn’t do a weekly wrap up post last week because the date coincided with my Month in Review post so let’s see what I’ve been up to (apart from sitting trying to figure out where all the time is going to – is there a black hole? Did I not get the memo?)

My last wrap up was 23rd September – since then I’ve read:

  2. The Tethered Mage by Melissa Caruso
  3. Creatures: The Legacy of Frankenstein by Emma Newman; Tade Thompson; Paul Meloy; Kaaron Warren; Rose Biggin

Next week’s reads: (i’ve put three but that’s probably a bit ambitious, still…)

  1. In the Night Wood by Dale Bailey
  2. Charmcaster by Sebastien DeCastell
  3. Chasing Graves by Ben Galley

Upcoming reviews: (these look bad!  I am trying to catch up but my blog was too busy for more posts last week):

  2. Envy of Angels by Matt Wallace
  3. Noir by Christopher Moore
