Welcome to my weekly post, where I sum-up what I’ve been up to in bookland the past week.
Hope you guys are having a good week!
Now: This Crumbling Pageant ~ Patricia Burroughs// The Turing Test ~ Chris Beckett
I’m trying really hard to get into This Crumbling Pageant, and I’m still going on my lunch-time read too.
Then: The Wolf Wilder ~ Katherine Rundell // The Reckoning Stones ~ Laura DiSilverio
My review of The Wolf Wilder went up on Monday. The Reckoning Stones was a slow-burner but I mostly enjoyed it. I’ll be reviewing it next week.
Next: Vengeance Road ~ Erin Bowman
Really looking forward to this one. Here’s the blurb:
When Kate Thompson’s father is killed by the notorious Rose Riders for a mysterious journal that reveals the secret location of a gold mine, the eighteen-year-old disguises herself as a boy and takes to the gritty plains looking for answers and justice. What she finds are devious strangers, dust storms, and a pair of brothers who refuse to quit riding in her shadow. But as Kate gets closer to the secrets about her family, she gets closer to the truth about herself and must decide if there’s room for love in a heart so full of hate.
In the spirit of True Grit, the cutthroat days of the Wild West come to life for a new generation.
I’m Waiting On…

The Winter Place ~ Alexander Yates
Ahhh can’t wait for this one, I love the cover, and it sounds beautiful!
When a mysterious stranger and his brown bear show up on the same day that Axel and Tess’s father dies in an accident, Axel fears he might be going crazy, especially as only he can see them. However, the strange duo are quickly forgotten when Axel and Tess are shipped off to Finland to stay with grandparents that they’ve never met. But when they arrive in Finland, Axel is stunned when the stranger and his bear reappear. More incredibly, the stranger tells him that his parents are lost and need help.
Desperate to see his father again, and actually meet his mother, Axel follows the man and his bear, disappearing deep into the frozen wilds of northern Finland.
When Tess realises that her brother has vanished she’s distraught. And so begins the frantic search across snow and ice into the dark forest. But as the hours creep by and with no sign of Axel, Tess begins to wonder if her brother has ventured onto a path that she cannot follow.
Delving into the timeless, fantastical world of Nordic mysticism, set against the harsh beauty of a frozen landscape, The Winter Place is an imaginative, beautiful story of loss, love and hope, a story of family, and of a brother and sister who find each other again.
Expected Publication: October 22nd by Simon & Schuster
