Welcome to my weekly post, where I sum-up what I’ve been up to in bookland the past week. 

Hope you guys are all having a good week. Here’s what I’ve been doing since last week…

Now: The Last Days of Jack Sparks ~ Jake Arnopp // Glass Sword ~ Victoria Aveyard

I didn’t mean to start Jack Sparks yet but I finished You Know Me Well quicker than expected and I was stranded on a long bus journey with only my Kindle – you know how it is. Anyway, as much as I wanted to read Glass Sword, I’m a bit hooked on it at the mo, so I’m attempting to reading both.

Then: You Know Me Well~ David Levithan & Nina LaCour

This was really cute. My review will be up a bit nearer to the release date which is June 7th.

Next: ??? 

I’m not sure this time. Hopefully another one from my physical TBR pile.

New on the Shelves

(Linking up with Stacking the Shelves)

 

Bought: I haven’t bought any books this week.

From Netgalley: 

The War Against the Assholes ~ Sam Munson

waragainstMike Wood is a teenager at a decidedly unprestigious Catholic school in Manhattan, accustomed to solving problems using brawn rather than brains.

One day, his nerdy classmate Hob Callahan persuades him to read a mysterious old book of unknown authorship, The Calendar of Slights. On the face of things, the book is a guide to performing clever card tricks; but in fact, it is a test for recruiting new members to join a secret cell of radical magicians.

Amazingly, Mike passes with flying colours unlocking not only his potential magic powers – but also the door to New York City’s vast and hidden underground network of warlocks, sorcerers and mages.

Here, with Hob as his unlikely guide, Mike’s role as a steadfast soldier begins. For there is a war being waged. A war between rivaling factions of magicians that has spanned the ages. A clandestine war against the establishment: a war against The Assholes.

  

So, that’s my week in books, now how about yours?

    • Yeah, I do find it difficult to read two books at once usually, but I think because these are so different and one is on Kindle and one a paperback it’s going OK so far 🙂

  1. I tried the book ban thing. It lasted 2 days, so I admire you for not buying books this week, haha. I have been getting so many books for the last couple of months. I am pretty sure I’d never bought so many before.
    I was stuck in bed with a virus last weekend and gulped down a couple of books from my Kindle that were supposed to be read later. You take a look and before you know it, you’re deep into a story!
    I love the sound of The Last Days of Jack Sparks!
    Happy reading 🙂
    Here’s my week in books https://chocolatenwafflesblog.wordpress.com/2016/05/11/this-week-in-books-may-11th-2016/

    • It is really hard to stop myself buying books, but being broke helps LOL!

      Jack Sparks is like nothing I’ve read before. It’s bizarre and creepy, and great!

      • Haha, I know! I cancelled an expensive hairdresser appointment in exchange for books, otherwise I would not be able to get new babies.
        I love creepy, creepy is good! As long as it stays inside the pages of a book…
