Welcome to my weekly post, where I sum-up what I’ve been up to in bookland the past week.
Happy Wednesday to you all. Here’s what I’ve been up to this week…
Now: Murder at the 42nd Street Library ~ Con Lehane
I want to love this but I’m not sure if I do…yet. It will all depend on the big reveal I reckon.
I really enjoyed The Glittering Court but it wasn’t without its issues. Deception was…ermm OK. Not as bad as I was expecting I guess, but it’s not a genre I’ll be running to any time soon.
Either something from my TBR shelf because I’ve been rubbish so far this month, or Fellside by M.R Carey.

I thought this sounded like a YA Sarah Waters book! I hope it is!
Enne Datchery and Muriel vas Veldina, ex-lovers and witches with a shared apprentice, are tasked by the Citadel, to repair an old grimoire together, despite the fact their relationship is tense at best.
The situation is further complicated when the book is stolen, and tracking down the thief stirs even more of Muriel’s past. It swiftly becomes clear to the two that dealing with their fractured relationship is going to be the easy part of the assignment—if they can live long enough to complete it.

And I Darken ~ Kiersten White
No one expects a princess to be brutal. And Lada Dragwyla likes it that way.
Ever since she and her brother were abandoned by their father to be raised in the Ottoman sultan’s courts, Lada has known that ruthlessness is the key to survival. For the lineage that makes her and her brother special also makes them targets.
Lada hones her skills as a warrior as she nurtures plans to wreak revenge on the empire that holds her captive. Then she and Radu meet the sultan’s son, Mehmed, and everything changes. Now Mehmed unwittingly stands between Lada and Radu as they transform from siblings to rivals, and the ties of love and loyalty that bind them together are stretched to breaking point.
The first of an epic new trilogy starring the ultimate anti-princess who does not have a gentle heart. Lada knows how to wield a sword, and she’ll stop at nothing to keep herself and her brother alive.
Expected Publication: 7th July by Corgi Children’s
