Weekly Wrap-Up: 10 May 2019

weekly wrap up new

Happy Friday!  I feel like my life is getting back to normal (see my April wrap-up post for more) and I’m finally reading again. This week has been a good one — I read a bunch of books and am off to see Detective Pikachu after work.

What a time to be alive.



Books I read


I Capture the Castle by Dodie Smith

The Prince and the Dressmaker by Jen Wang

The Devouring Gray by Christine Lynn Herman

It has been a busy, busy reading week for me! I finished three book this week and I really liked them all. I think my favourite was a surprise hit — The Devouring Gray. I had assumed it was going to be fine, but overhyped. Oh man, I absolutely loved it. It was like Stranger Things meets Buffy in upstate New York.  Book two now, please.

I’m getting back in the groove of writing reviews, so keep an eye out for reviews on these three books soon!


Books I am currently reading

Nine Perfect Strangers by Liane Moriarty

Sabriel by Garth Nix (audiobook)

A Time of Dread by John Gwynne

I’m reading three books at once, typical me, and they’re all quite different. Sabriel is my audiobook, which I’ve been working on for awhile. I’m over halfway done now! I loved Big Little Lies so it was obvious that I needed to pick up Nine Perfect Strangers. I’m not too far in at the moment, but hope to make some progress this weekend. Finally, I’ve sort of been reading A Time of Dread, but it has disappeared in my flat! I think the cats took it (it’s probably under the bed). I’m planning to unearth it and read some more this weekend.


Books I bought

Nothing!  Book buying ban is going okay so far.

I’m just as surprised as you


Book post


The Descendant of the Crane by Joan He

The Gameshouse by Claire North

Ten Thousand Doors of January by Alix E. Harrow

The Kingdom by Jen Rothenberg

Smoke in the Glass by Chris Humphries

Green Valley by Louis Greenberg

I’ve been struck by an avalanche of book post!  All of these book look absolutely incredible and I’m so excited to read them. The Descendant of the Crane was my April Illumicrate book, and the others are all from publishers. I think I’m going to actually get cracking on a couple of them, despite the fact that they have summer publication dates.  I can’t resist!


That’s it for this week! What have you been up to? What books have you read or bought? Let me know!

  1. Look like a great reading week!
    I’m reading truthwitch, and I’m loving it so much, I’m wondering why I never picked it up before!
