Welcome to my weekly post, where I sum-up what I’ve been up to in bookland the past week.
Whoop it’s Wednesday again! I read two really amazing books in a row and then descended into a huge reading slump, which is annoying. I never DNF but I felt like I had to this week! :s
I’m really hoping one of these (or both) gets me out of my reading slump because I have lots of ARCs to read and review for April!
I just could not get into All Things Cease to Appear and had to admit defeat at around 35%. It was an ARC so I’ll still be doing a mini-review which will be up next week.
On the other end of the scale – I adored The Madwoman Upstairs! It was smart and funny, and just plain great. Look out for my review later today.
I think I need to tackle The Crow Girl which sounds amazing and dark but I’ve only just realised it’s over 700 pages long. Gah! It’s out early April.
New on the Shelves

I was approved for this from Netgalley, which was my Waiting on Wednesday pick last week (hurrah!). but other than that I haven’t bought or borrowed any books this week. Go me!
Magruder’s Curiosity Cabinet
After Kitty Hayward’s mother vanishes from their Coney Island hotel in 1904, Kitty finds herself alone, hungry, penniless, and far away from her native England. The last people she’d expect to help her are the cast of characters at Magruder’s Curiosity Cabinet, a museum of oddities that is home to a handful of freaks. But even the unusual inhabitants of Magruder’s may not be a match for the insidious sickness that is plaguing Coney Island…

There Once Were Stars
I know we’re all a bit bored of this whole dystopia thang…but I really like the sound of this one.
Peace. Love. Order. Dome. That’s the motto that the Order has given the residents of Dome 1618 to live by. Natalia Greyes is a resident of Dome 1618, a covered city protected from the deadly radiation that has poisoned the world outside for four generations. Nat never questioned the Order, until one day she sees a stranger on the outside of the dome. Now Nat wants answers. Is there life outside the dome and if so, what has the Order been hiding from everyone?
