Booking Ahead/Weekly Wrap Up

Sunday Post

I’m trying to get back into the habit of doing a round-up of the week just completed and also take a look at my plans for the forthcoming week.  I rather got out of the habit of doing this last year but I would like to reinstate this type of post as I feel it keeps me on track.  So, I’m linking up to The Sunday Post over at Kimberly’s  Caffeinated Reviewer.  Without further ado:

Last week:

Still very busy last week but I’m pleased to say that I’ve started to catch up with blog hopping, if I’ve not visited you yet I have made good progress and this week hopefully will get to everyone.  On the reading front I’ve read two books, both a little spontaneous and off plan – but, never mind – The Blacktongue Thief which I really enjoyed and Later by Stephen King which was also very good.  I do need to get back to The Helm of Midnight by Marina Lostetter and The Wolf Den by Elodie Harper.  Both of those were not quite working their magic for me so I will try again this week.  I also will be reading the next instalment of the second Discworld book later this evening.

Complete The Helm of Midnight and The Wolf Den as mentioned above. I will also make a start on The Broken God by Gareth Hanrahan.

  1. A Darker Shade of Magic by VE Schwab
  2. The Shadow of the Gods by John Grynne
  1. Murder of Crows by Anne Bishop
  2. The Ikessar Falcon by KS Villoso
  3. Later by Stephen King
  4. The Blacktongue Thief by Christopher Buehlman

Last week:

This week, I was a bit busy so a lot of my best laid plans went askew.  Consequently I’ve still got lots of catching up to do this forthcoming week.  In terms of reading I read The Shadow of the Gods by John Gwynne – which was brilliant.  Review to follow on Monday.  I also completed the Ikessar Falcon by KS Villoso.  I started this some time ago but then put it down and got distracted.  So, I decided to start it again.  This is a very character focused read indeed which is something I love.  I also made a start on my second Pratchett Discworld book and read the first third.  I still need to finish The Helm of Midnight by Marina Lostetter and I’ve also started the Wolf Den by Elodie Harper. 

 

Complete The Helm of Midnight and The Wolf Den. I think I’d also like to make a start on one of my other review books.  Perhaps Day Zero by C Robert Cargill.  And of course continue my Discworld adventure.

Last week:

So this week.  I finished the SPFBO competition.  My final read was The Lost War by Justin Lee Anderson, which was coincidentally also the winner of the competition.  My review is here.  I also completed The Girl and the Mountain by Mark Lawrence which was a very good second instalment and I enjoyed that it took us back to a world that Lawrence fans are already familiar with.  I’ve made a start on John Gwynne’s The Shadow of the Gods which has pretty much already grabbed my attention.  I’ve also made a start on The Helm of Midnight by Marina Lostetter which is interesting. And, I seriously need to catch up with some reviews so hopefully I’ll manage to get three of four out this week.  Finally, I’m hoping to get back on track with blogging and blog hopping and see what I’ve been missing out on.

Next Week

Complete The Shadow of the Gods and The Helm of Midnight.  Also make a start on the second Discworld book and maybe make a start on The Wolf Den by Elodie Harper.

Last week:

So this week.  I’ve finally caught up with the first Discworld book – just need to put some thoughts down for that one and settle down to discuss it with my buddy.  I haven’t managed to get back to The Light of the Midnight Stars by Rena Rossner because I’ve been concentrating on my SPFBO books (it being the last week – no, I’m not panicking).  I’ve completed The Combat Codes by Alexander Darwin – my review for which should be posted tomorrow (fingers crossed and all going to plan) and I’m about 20% into Justin Lee Anderson’s The Lost War.  I think I’m on track although the finish line is fast approaching.  I’ve also made a start on The Girl and the Mountain which I’m about halfway through.

 

Next Week

Complete The Lost War, The Girl and the Mountain and The Light of the Midnight Stars.  Doddle.

Past two weeks:

I missed last week’s wrap up post so I’ll post two week’s worth today. Surprisingly, given the last week I had I’ve been reading quite a bit – I find that concentrating on a book takes my mind off other things.  I do need to catch up with blog hopping and comments though because all of that has gone straight to hell in a handcart.  I’ve finished my buddy read of a Darker Shade of Magic this past week.  I can’t deny I didn’t love this as much as I hoped and my review will be up soon.  I’ve also made a start on the first Discworld book that I’m also buddy reading. Early days but just up to chapter 4.  I also read Mirrorland by Carole Johnstone, The Two Faced Queen by Nick Martell, Ariadne by Jennifer Saint, Last Memoria by Rachel Emma Shaw and started The Light of the Midnight Stars by Rena Rossner.

Next Week

Hoping to complete The Light of the Midnight Stars.  Possibly one of my two remaining SPFBO finalists and The Girl and the Mountain by Mark Lawrence.
