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

Happy Wednesday, Blog-friends! Here’s what my week has looked like…

Now:   The Hummingbird’s Cage ~ Tamara Dietrich

I’ve only just started this and I’m gripped! 🙂 

Then:  Daughter of Smoke and Bone ~ Laini Taylor

My initial love for DOSAB petered out towards the end of the book but overall I enjoyed it. 

Next: ??? 

Probably The Thousandth Floor as it’s my next ARC deadline. 

New on the Shelves

 

From Netgalley:

Stealing Snow ~ Danielle Page

stealingsnow

Seventeen-year-old Snow lives within the walls of the Whittaker Institute, a high security mental hospital in upstate New York. Deep down, she knows she doesn’t belong there, but she has no memory of life outside, except for the strangest dreams. And then a mysterious, handsome man, an orderly in the hospital, opens a door – and Snow knows that she has to leave … 

She finds herself in icy Algid, her true home, with witches, thieves, and a strangely alluring boy named Kai. As secret after secret is revealed, Snow discovers that she is on the run from a royal lineage she’s destined to inherit, a father more powerful and ruthless than she could have imagined, and choices of the heart that could change everything. Heroine or villain, queen or broken girl, frozen heart or true love, Snow must choose her fate …

A wonderfully icy fantastical romance, with a strong heroine choosing her own destiny, Danielle Paige’s irresistibly page-turning Snow Queen is like Maleficent and Frozen all grown up. 
Expected publication: October 6th 2016 by Bloomsbury Childrens

Waiting on Wednesday

(Linking up with Breaking the Spine)

Christmas in the Lone Star State ~ Jason Manning

I’m so excited at the prospect of some cosy Autumn and Seasonal reads. I’m not sorry to see Summer end at all. Sorrynotsorry. 

christmasinthelone.pngA LAWMAN PAST HIS PRIME…
Texas Ranger Bill Sayles rode scout for Sam Houston when he was no more than fifteen. These days the lawman’s on the wrong side of three score years, and the glory days of the Rangers are on the wane. But Sayles still hits what he aims at and is not a man to cross. Ten days before Christmas in the harsh winter of 1876, Sayles arrives at the state prison in Huntsville to escort prisoner Jake Eddings on a furlough to his hometown, where his ten-year-old son is being laid to rest.
A PRISONER PAST ALL HOPE…
In a desperate scheme to save his farm, Eddings took part in a stagecoach holdup in which the driver was killed. After serving two years of a fifteen-year sentence, he is already a broken man. Despite the agony of regret, he longs to see his wife and bury his beloved boy.But when Sayles gets wind that the murderous Litchfield brothers are headed in the direction of Eddings’ farm, the Ranger and his prisoner join forces to keep Eddings’ wife from harm—and maybe grab a last shot at redemption. 

Expected Publication: Nov 1st 2016 by St. Martins press

  1. I love that cover of Daughter Of Smoke And Bone! Like you I loved the first part (the descriptions and world building are excellent), but the insta-love and romance blabbering ruined the book for me. Such a shame!
