Hope you’ve all had a good week.  I’m so busy at the moment.  Work is busy, social life is very active and on top of that we’re decorating – so, as a consequence there isn’t a single room in the house that doesn’t look like a storm just ripped through it!  So, I confess, I’m tired.  Plus what horrible news from London this week, my heart goes out to all those people affected.

Last week’s reads:

  1. The Heart of Stone by Ben Galley – review to follow
  2. Collapsing Empire by John Scalzi

I listened to a few more chapters of my Miriam Black book and also started my next SPFBO book.

So, next week I’m hoping to finish:

  1. Thunderbird by Chuck Wendig
  2. The Music Box by K A Stewart

And, finally, my cover highlight this week:

a red rose

I love this series and think the covers are all great.  I can’t wait to start this – hopefully this week.

How was your week?  What you currently reading?

This last week I’ve been far too sociable – which means my reading has definitely taken a nose dive and also this post is late!

Last week’s reads:

  1. Island of Exiles by Erica Cameron

Haha – how atrocious is that for a reading week – just one book only!  Life just sometimes takes over.  However, not to be a totally useless so and so I have also read half of the Collapsing Empire by John Scalzi and also a third of Ben Galley’s Heart of Stone and so far so good on both counts.  Ohh, and I started my first ever audio book – the fourth Miriam Black book by Chuck Wendig which I’ve listened to the first 12 chapters of – multi tasking am I!

So, next week I’m hoping to finish all of the above.  That is my plan for now and maybe start my next SPFBO book

And, finally, my cover highlight this week:

Avengers

I love this cover – it has such a retro feel to it with the colours and style.  Do you like it?

Nearly half way through March and whilst my plans may not have exactly stayed perfectly on track I’m getting along okay with my review books – I still need to catch up with a few reviews but I had a good week in terms of reading.  I finished the two books below and am partially through Island of Exiles by .

Last week’s reads:

  1. Defence of Ráth Bládhma (Fionn mac Cumhaill #1) by Brian O’Sullivan (SPFBO book) – this was really good and I rated it 8.5 stars out of ten.
  2. Red Sister by Mark Lawrence – completely different than Mr Lawrence’s two previous trilogies – excellent reading and a compelling main character in Nona.

This week I’m hoping to complete Island of Exiles and also read Heart of Stone by Ben Galley and Collapsing Empire by John Scalzi.  Let’s see how it goes.

And, finally, my cover compare this week:

Which is your favourite?  I like the first cover – although the green is rather spectacularly eye catching.

What an odd week – I’ve been a bit out of the count due to illness so still in need of some catching up.  Reviews just don’t write themselves after all!  My reading this week has been a little bit slow although I did read Meagan Spooner’s Hunted which I loved and think it now takes the top spot for my favourite Beauty and the Beast reimagining.

Last week’s reads:

  1. Hunted by Meagan Spooner

Currently reading:

  1. Empress of the Fall by David Hair
  2. Defence of Ráth Bládhma (Fionn mac Cumhaill #1) by Brian O’Sullivan (SPFBO book)

And, finally, my cover compare this week:something different – I thought I’d highlight the cover of one of my upcoming reads:

My favourite cover is this one:
