Weekly Wrap-Up: 08 March 2019

weekly wrap up new

 

Happy Friday!  I cannot wait for this weekend — I get to see friends, go to a book event in London, and relax a little!  The number of books I read in a given week is going to decline here soon because, well, you’ll see why.

 

Books I read

Truthwitch by Susan Dennard

I finally got around to reading Truthwitch by Susan Dennard and I absolutely loved it! It has tight world building, a solid magic system, and a cast of characters with incredible chemistry. I am so mad at myself for letting this book languish on my shelf for over a year, but I’ve already bought the rest of the series. A review is coming up soon!

 

Books I am currently reading

Priory of the Orange Tree by Samantha Shannon

Once and Future by Amy Rose Capetta and Cory McCarthy

I’m currently sort of reading two books. Priory is my main priority — I’m not joking when I say I’ve been waiting for this book for so long. When I first heard about its release, I knew I had to have it. So finally, over 18 months later, I’m finally able to read it! This book is a real chonky one, clocking in at over 800 pages, but I’m a 90’s fantasy fan — I’ve never met a long book I didn’t like. I’ll be working on this one for awhile, so these wrap-ups may be a bit dull for awhile.

My other book is Once and Future, which I’m using as my commuting book when I don’t want to break my back carrying Priory on the bus. I’m lukewarm on it so far — it is fun but the dialogue is a bit cheesy and clunky and the pacing is a bit off.  I am going to give it a proper chance though!

The Devouring Gray by Christina Lynne Herman

Lord of Secrets by Breanna Teintze

Through the White Wood by Jessica Leake

I’ve received some marvelous book post this week! All three of these books come out in spring/summer of 2019 and they’re all high on my list of anticipated reads. Reviews should be coming soon!*

The Fever King by Victoria Lee

Normally I’d say that a real world meets magic meets dystopian book might not be the right thing for me, but I love the sound of The Fever King!  I cannot wait to get started on this one — it sounds so unique.*

 

That’s it for this week. My sister and I are getting started on season two of our podcast, I’m working on getting loads of reviews out to you guys, and I have some exciting things in the pipeline that I cannot wait to share!

 

What have you been up to this week? Have you read any great books? Have you picked up anything new? Let me know!

 

*These books were sent to me for free by the publisher in exchange for an honest review
