Weekly Wrap-Up #4

Happy Friday, everyone!  I considered not doing a weekly wrap up because I’ll be posting my April round up on Sunday.  But I really like doing weekly wrap ups, so here we go.

Books

Books I finished reading:

Northern Lights by Philip Pullman
The Lady and the Highlander by Lecia Cornwall
Hey, I read three books this week!  Not too shabby.  I loved Northern Lights, despite complaining here in the past that I was struggling to get into it — I repent!  I ended up absolutely loving it.  A Court of Thorns and Roses is one I have been meaning to read for a long time and finally go to it this week.  I have thoughts, lots of thoughts.  I plan to post a review and some sort of discussion on this soon.  The Lady and the Highlander was the ARC I finished up this week.  Unfortunately, it just didn’t click with me.  There were a lot of elements that didn’t make any sense and the characters were very weak.

Books I’m currently reading:

A Darker Shade of Magic by V. E. Schwab
I was asked to join a fantasy bookclub by my coworker (!!!!!!) and their next book is A Darker Shade of Magic, which has been sitting on my shelf for over a year.  I’m only about 50 pages in so far, but I can tell I’m going to love it!

Books I bought:

Only one book bought this week!  This is one of my publisher’s books so you won’t be seeing any reviews of it here!  It’s a gorgeous edition and who doesn’t love a ghost story?

What I’ll read next:

TBR:
The Wrath and the Dawn by Renée Ahdieh
The Sin Eater’s Daughter by Melissa Salisbury
I was going to read The Wrath and the Dawn next as of last week, but A Darker Shade of Magic slipped up the TBR stack.  The Sin Eater’s Daughter is another gorgeous book that I’ve been negelecting and will clear a book out from my nightstand TBR pile.
ARC:
Sea by Sarah Driver
Skullsworn by Brian Staveley
I just finished an ARC last night and have so many to get through!  It’s a little overwhelming, but I think these two will be fast and enjoyable reads.

Life

It’s another bank holiday weekend — this time we only get Monday off — so I’ll be heading over to London to spend some time with my parents!  As we are a family of readers, this means I’ll be getting lots of reading done.
