This week has been excellent, although maybe not in terms of my reading.  Far too much socialising, the weather has been lovely, I’ve been meeting new people and on top of that today was Father’s Day so it was all about family and it was great.  So, excuses, excuses, I’ve not finished my books from last week so I’ve left them on below:

  1. The Court of Broken Knives (Empires of Dust #1)
  2. The Bones of the Earth (Bound Gods #2) by Rachel Dunne

My cover compare this week is Blackwing by Ed McDonald:

So, my reading this week has not been brilliant!  I did complete the Prey of Gods which is absolutely awesome.  And, I’ve also read Borne by Jeff VanderMeer – which is a crazy read – review to follow.

Another speedy week flies by.  I didn’t quite achieve what I wanted to this week – although I did read The Fallen Kingdom and my review for that will follow shortly and I’m 50% into Prey of Gods – and loving it.  Absolutely loving it.

Another shocking week, my heart goes out to London.

A quick wrap up – I’ve been away for the past week with family and so behind with blogging.  I have mostly managed to read the books I set out to read in my wrap up last week but all this has really done is make me further behind with reviews.  So, some catching up is in order.

Also, although this is a book blog, I must make a quick heart felt mention for the victims and their families after this week’s terrible terrorist attack in Manchester.  I really feel for you all.  It’s just so very sad and incomprehensible.

  1. Between The Stars by Anne Corlett
  2. All Good Things by Emma Newman
  3. Skitter by Ezekiel Boone – still reading this but I imagine it will be complete by this evening so I’m including it on here.

Next week I’m hoping to read:

I think both sets are really good but I love the top set – the colours are just so dramatic and eye catching.  Which is your favourite?

This week I’ve finished Rotherweird -I enjoyed this but I’m just going to be perfectly frank – this is not a quick read, I’m not saying that because it’s a bad thing, I’m simply stating the fact.  Yes, of course, I’m sure you could skim read it and make it a bit quicker but the pace is not that of a book that you’re going to zip though.  It’s a thinking person’s book.  You need to mull and chew the cud and reflect.  Review to follow.  I’ve also read Andrew Pyper’s The Only Child and hopefully my review for that one will be forthcoming very soon – check out the first couple of sentences here.

Next week I’m hoping to read :

  1. Between The Stars by Anne Corlett
  2. All Good Things by Emma Newman
  3. Skitter by Ezekiel Boone

So, who am I kidding with that three book wishlist! Hey I have to have aspirations and reading three books in a week is about all I can think of at the moment.

And, finally, my cover highlight this week, I’ve gone for the Split World series by Emma Newman:
