Welcome to This Week in Books, where we share what we’ve been up to in bookland this week and look ahead to next.
Happy Wednesday you guys. I’m afraid my now, then and next answers are still the same but I feel like my reading slump is finally dissipating so hopefully I’ll be back to normal next week. New book haul and WoW below though, so keep on reading… 😉
I’m almost done with The Wingsnatchers. It’s a really cute Steampunk Junior Fiction (Middle Grade) read. And yes, I’m stiiiiiiiiiiill going on The Time Machine at lunch-times.
Then: King’s Cage ~ Victoria Aveyard
This was the last book I finished. I posted a very short review in my reading round-up here.
I keep saying I’ll read Six of Crows and then don’t, but I am determined to this time. Promise. (Double promise!)
New on the Shelves
Bought on Kindle:
Powerful, darkly funny and heart-breaking, Shtum is a story about fathers and sons, autism, and dysfunctional relationships.
Ben Jewell has hit breaking point. His ten-year-old son Jonah has severe autism and Ben and his wife, Emma, are struggling to cope.
When Ben and Emma fake a separation – a strategic decision to further Jonah’s case in an upcoming tribunal – Ben and Jonah move in with Georg, Ben’s elderly father. In a small house in North London, three generations of men – one who can’t talk; two who won’t – are thrown together.
I’m Waiting On…
