Welcome to This Week in Books, where we share what we’ve been up to in bookland this week and look ahead to next!
I’m backkkk! 🙂 Welcome to my new look blog. Hope you’re all having a good summer so far. Here’s what I’ve been reading this week…
NOW: I’ve just started Ink & Bone which is the first book in The Great Libraries series. I’ve been meaning to read it since it came out (in 2015!!). I used to love Caine’s Morganville Vampires series so I’m interested to see how her style has developed.
THEN: The last book I finished was My Name is Leon. I met Kit de Waal at this year’s Quick Reads launch and she was amazing. She only properly started reading books when she was 19. How amazing is that! She does a lot of work for underprivileged kids, go check her out. My Name is Leon was a great read about a young boy trying to make sense of the world when he’s taken away from his mentally ill mother, put into foster care and is separated from his baby brother.
NEXT: Probably Why I’m No Longer Talking to White People About Race. I’ve been told by two people now that I MUST read it. And so I shall…

Welcome back! I loved Ink and Bone, I hope you do too. And I’m super excited to read The Wicked King😁
Thank you!! Can’t wait for the Holly Black book…I need it now!!
Oh my gosh, The Great Library series is one of my favorites! I really hope you enjoy Ink and Bone!
Oh thank you, I hope so too! It’s started a bit slow but I think I’m into it!!
Why I’m no longer talking to white people about race is a must!!! You definitely should read it.
You were the first to recommend it. Then a lady returned it to your library on Tues and said the same so I borrowed it! 😄. Couldn’t resist!
I’ll make you a list of other stuff tomorrow…
😄 *happily dies under a landslide of books*
Yay, welcome back! I still haven’t picked up Ink and Bone, but have wanted to for as long as it’s been out. I am so stoked for The Wicked King. I was so impressed with The Cruel Prince and am eagerly awaiting what happens next.
Thank you!! IKR. I need an update on that story right now! January is so far away.
I’m obsessed with the Great Library series – I’ve just recently read the fourth book and I can’t wait for the fifth book! Happy reading!
Oh wow, I didn’t realise she was still writing them to be honest! But that’s good news. Thank you!!
Leon sounds interesting and …Talking to White People about Race (btw, have you seen Dear White People on Netflix?)
