This Week in Books (27.07.16) #TWIB


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

Hey Blog-friends, I’m back! I’m still not back to a full schedule but I really wanted to start getting back into the swing of things.

I’ve moved house! It’s strange after so many years where I was…but it’s good, and my journey to work is soooooooo much better. I’m still uber busy trying to clean my old flat (which I hand over at the end of the month) and unpacking in my new place, but I’m sure I can find time to get some posts out as I’m really behind.

I never intended to abandon this meme during my downtime, but life just got in the way – plus, I haven’t had time to read much 😦 Anyway, I’m back now, so here’s what I’ve managed to get through in the last few weeks…



Now: The Seeing StoneΒ Β ~ Kevin Crossley-Holland

This has been sitting on my TBR shelf for about five years! I love Arthurian stories but it hasn’t lived up my expectations yet. I’m only about 1/3 of the way in though, and after five years I think I should persevere. Β 

Then:Β Shadow and Bone Β ~ Leigh Bardugo

I enjoyed this a lot, just like everyone (mainly Chrissi) said I would so thanks for that. I’ll have to buy the trilogy now won’t I!? The book I read before that was And I Darken which I still haven’t reviewed because I’m naughty, LOL. It will be my first review up when I’m back on my blogging feet though, promise.

Β Next: ???Β 

I’m surprisingly not too behind on ARCs which is good, but I think I’ll make Β start on the August releases anyway. The first one isΒ When Everything Feels Like the MoviesΒ by Raziel Reid. It’s out August 4th.Β

That’s all for this week – I’ll be back to my longer version next month.

  1. I’m glad you enjoyed Shadow & Bone! Leigh Bardugo is probably one of my favorite authors, although I actually liked Six Of Crows even better than The Grisha Trilogy. πŸ˜‰ Happy reading!
