Welcome to This Week in Books, where we share what we’ve been up to in bookland this week and look ahead to next.
Hi, Strangers! I didn’t mean to take a fortnight off from the blog but it kind of just happened. Life, eh!? The good news is that I finally kicked that reading slump in the balls. Yeehah!
Now: Six of Crows ~ Leigh Bardugo // The Time Machine ~ H.G Wells
I’ve literally only read the first page of Six of Crows so nothing to report yet. I think might have to just give up on my lunch-time attempts at The Time Machine…haven’t managed to pick it up for weeks.
Then: The Last Act of Love ~ Cathy Rentzenbrink // The Wingsnatchers ~ Sarah Jean Horwitz
I finished The Last Act of Love last night. It is an emotional memoir about living with loss and grief – I couldn’t put it down. I finished The Wingsnatchers since my last post too. It was a lot of fun. I’ll get my review up ASAP.
Up next will be an ARC I’m quite excited about, Sucktown, Alaska by Craig Dirkes. It’s out at the beginning of May so I need to get a shifty on.

The Inexplicable Logic of My Life
The first day of senior year:
Everything is about to change. Until this moment, Sal has always been certain of his place with his adoptive gay father and their loving Mexican-American family. But now his own history unexpectedly haunts him, and life-altering events force him and his best friend, Samantha, to confront issues of faith, loss, and grief.
Suddenly Sal is throwing punches, questioning everything, and discovering that he no longer knows who he really is—but if Sal’s not who he thought he was, who is he?
I’m Waiting On…
Bad Romance by Heather Demotrios
Because… the cover caught my eye and it sounds like an intense read.
So that’s my week in books, now why don’t you tell me about yours!?

I love the sound of The Last Act of Love! And you reminded me I still haven’t read Six of Crows xD Oops! happy reading!
Ha glad I’m not the only one who’s behind on them in that case 😉
Bad Romance! I can’t wait to read that book. I hope you enjoy your reading this week. Thanks for hosting! https://chrissireads.wordpress.com/2017/04/19/this-week-in-books-61/

Thanks for hosting! Have a great week!
Yay for kicking that reading slump! And also that cover for Bad Romance and the plot!!! Adding this to my tbr.
Here is my post for this week. Happy reading! 🙂
Glad you’ve kicked the reading slump – sometimes a break does us good! Here’s my post for this week – I’m enjoying tackling some of my books rather than review copies for a change! https://josbookblog.co.uk/2017/04/19/this-week-in-books-19-04-17/
The Last Act of Love caught my eye when it first came out and I really want to read it but I know it will make me cry – Good to have you back again Lipsy 🙂
Aw thanks! 🙂 And yeah it definitely will make you cry! I cried a few times and I’m known as an ice queen most of the time LOL. I cried reading it on the bus, thank God I was wearing sunglasses. It has a really lovely message though, definitely worth it. Be brave 😉
I rarely cry over books but I know this will be a killer – will need to wait until the sun is shining if I want to read it in public 😉
Yay for getting over your reading slump! Six Of Crows is one of my favorite fantasy series (duology?), so I hope you will enjoy it. Happy reading!
I’ve heard great things about Six of Crows … I just got it from the library and I think I’ll try to get to it next week. Plus I love the cover! Meanwhile, I’m loving the cover for Bad Romance!
Looking forward to your review of The Last Act Of Love! I reviewed it with my sister and I think it broke both our hearts!
