I’ve had a great week and hope you all have too.  In fairness, I’ve not been brilliant with my reading because there’s been such a lot going on in my personal life but it’s all good – socialising and visiting relatives is always good.

Anyway, hope you all had an enjoyable week.  Here are my books:

  1. Princess of Blood by Tom Lloyd – I did start this one a couple of weeks ago and the fact I’m behind is not a reflection of the book – simply that I’ve not had much sit down time.
  2. Snowspelled by Stephanie Burgis

I’m still reading Naamah’s Blessing by Jacqueline Carey, this is for a readalong that I’m behind for but hoping to catch up soon.  I’m also still listening to Neil Gaiman’s American Gods and loving it.

Next week I’m hoping to read:

  1. The Turn by Kim Harrison
  2. The Curious Affair of the Witch of Wayside Cross by Lisa Tuttle
  3. Swarm and Steel by Michael R Fletcher

Cover compare:

For me the second cover is the winner – I love these dramatic covers.

How was your week? What you currently reading?

It’s difficult to believe but we are into August!  Somebody took great pleasure on Friday in telling me that we had only 140+ days until Christmas for goodness sake – the mince pies and decorations will be in the shops probably in another month (*shakes fist) and I still don’t feel like I’ve had a summer.  Still, time flies when you’re having fun – exactly how much fun am I having right now eh!

Anyway, hope you all had a good week.  Here are my books – although not much this past week:

  1. The Stillhouse Lake by Rachel – which was a step out of character for me and a real page turner to boot.

I’m also reading Naamah’s Blessing by Jacqueline Carey, this is for a readalong that I’m behind for but hoping to catch up this week.  I’m also about a third into Neil Gaiman’s American Gods and loving it.

Next week I’m hoping to read:

  1. Princess of Blood by Tom Lloyd – I did start this one a couple of weeks ago and the fact I’m behind is not a reflection of the book – simply that I’ve not had much sit down time.
  2. Snowspelled by Stephanie Burgis
  3. The Turn by Kim Harrison

Weekly Wrap Up : 25/6/17

Well, the weather has been glorious although it does now seem to have broken.  I’ve had a fun weekend, maybe a little wine fuelled, but lots of friends and maybe a couple of late nights – I hope you’ve all had a good weekend too.

In terms of reading this week:

  1. The Court of Broken Knives (Empires of Dust #1) finished and review to follow
  2. The Bones of the Earth – not yet finished – next week though
  3. Borderline (The Arcadia Project) by Mishell Baker – this book took me by storm and just woo’ed me!

My cover highlight this week is The Arcadia Project books – I will be reading No2 pretty damn quick sharp:

Which is your favourite?
