Another week slips by, two books read, I’m also onto my final book of the third batch of books for SPFBO and so will be posting a feedback post soon followed by a post outlining my fourth batch of books.  So far I’m sticking to schedule.  I need to write up a few reviews to catch up which is something I’ll be working on today.  My wifi signal may become a little dodgy next week so I’m going to schedule a few posts just in case, if I disappear for a while that’s hopefully the reason why – and I’ve not been sucked into a black hole or abducted by aliens.

Hope you’ve all had a good week and that you have another good one this forthcoming week.

My books:

  1. Violet by Scott Thomas
  2. The Bone Ships by RJ Barker

Next scheduled reads:

  1. The Black Hawks by David Wragg
  2. Mistletoe by Alison Littlewood
  3. The Beautiful by Renée Ahdieh

Upcoming Reviews

  1. King of the Road by RS Belcher
  2. Queenslayer by Sebastien DeCastell
  3. The Witch Who Courted Death by Maria Lewis
  4. Strange Practice by Vivian Shaw
  5. Bone China by Laura Purcell
  6. Violet by Scott Thomas
  7. The Bone Ships by RJ Barker

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

Its difficult to believe but in just one more week we will be three quarters of the way through the year 2020.  It’s strange how quickly this year is flying by and looking at my progress in reading this year so far I make it that I’ve read 85 books including this past week so my 100 books per year should be achievable.  I hope everyone has had a good week.  I’ve managed to read two of the three books I set for myself this week – these two books couldn’t have been more different in style and story and yet I enjoyed both.  And, I still haven’t got to the Dragon Republic – I seem to keep rolling it forward, I think I’m scared to be happy because I’ve seen nothing but positive reviews so I need to pick it up soon.  I also need to crack out a few reviews. I’ve started my fourth SPFBO book for the month and should have an update by the end of the month and that and the other two from my third batch.  I posted my half way point summary which can be found here.

My books:

  1. The Resurrectionist of Caligo by Wendy Trimboli, Alicia Zaloga
  2. The World That We Knew by Alice Hoffman

Next scheduled reads:

  1. The Dragon Republic by RF Kuang
  2. Violet by Scott Thomas
  3. The Bone Ships by RJ Barker

Upcoming reviews

  1. King of the Road by RS Belcher
  2. Queenslayer by Sebastien DeCastell
  3. The Witch Who Courted Death by Maria Lewis
  4. Strange Practice by Vivian Shaw
  5. Bone China by Laura Purcell
  6. The Resurrectionist of Caligo by Wendy Trimboli, Alicia Zaloga
  7. The World That We Knew by Alice Hoffman

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

This week has been a bit quieter in terms of reading.  But, on the doggy front my little dog is all good which is a big relief.  I’ve only read one book this week, I’ve just had too much going on.  I’ve also read the first 30% of two of my SPFBO books and I’m hoping to have an update in the next day or so.

My books:

  1. Bone China by Laura Purcell

I hope everyone has had a good week.  August is almost gone – how?  It’s a mystery.  Anyway, this is going to be short and sweet this week as I’m in a bit of a rush.  I’ve managed three books this week.  Plus I’ve completed reading through the first 30% of my second batch of SPFBO books and decided which two books to carry forward for further reading.  My feedback post is here.  I’ve also reviewed the book I carried forward from the first batch of books – Cry Havoc – review here.  The Witch Who Courted Death is one of the books I chose for the 2019 Rewind Challenge.  Details here.  Hopefully I can see my way clear to reading another off the list next month.

My books:

  1. The House of Sacrifice by Anna Smith Spark
  2. Brightfall Jaime Lee Moyer
  3. The Witch Who Courted Death by Maria Lewis

Next scheduled reads:

  1. The Dragon Republic by RF Kuang
  2. Kingdom of Souls by Rena Barron
  3. Healer’s Ruin by Chris O’Mara
  4. The Lore of Prometheus by Graham Austin-King

Upcoming reviews

  1. King of the Road by RS Belcher
  2. Queenslayer by Sebastien DeCastell

WeeklyWrap Up : 18th August 2019

My week has been very positive.  Lots of keeping in touch with everyone and actually a very good reading week too.  I have a few reviews lined up although it actually never looks or feels as though I’m really catching up.  Two steps forward, three steps back.  LOL.  But, I’m not stressed – I’ve got so many good books coming up on my schedule that I’m positively delirious with joy.  So, this is what I’ve been reading this week (as well as making some progress with my SPFBO books):

My books:

  1. Storm Cursed by Patricia Briggs
  2. Turning Darkness Into Light by Marie Brennan
  3. Missing Person by Sarah Lotz

Next scheduled reads:

  1. The House of Sacrifice by Anna Smith Spark
  2. Brightfall Jaime Lee Moyer
  3. The Dragon Republic by RF Kuang

Upcoming reviews

  1. King of the Road by RS Belcher
  2. Queenslayer by Sebastien DeCastell
  3. A Little Hatred by Joe Abercrombie
  4. Cry Havoc by Mike Morris
  5. Storm Cursed by Patricia Briggs
  6. Turning Darkness Into Light by Marie Brennan
  7. Missing Person by Sarah Lotz

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