Weekly Wrap-Up: 27 November 2019

book review

November is coming to a close (?!) and it’s time to pull out the hot water bottles, cuddly blankets, and hot chocolate mix. With the change in weather it really feels like winter time, and winter time means more reading! This post is quite late, but what the heck, it was mostly written anyway. Check out the books I read and acquired since our last update!

 

Books I read

The Queen of Nothing by Holly Black

The Subtle Knife by Phillip Pullman

The Guest List by Lucy Foley

Infinity Son by Adam Silvera

Thunderhead by Neil Schusterman

I read fivebooks this week and a half, which is great, but it was mixed in terms of quality. I liked Queen of Nothing well enough, but wasn’t blown away. The Subtle Knife was the strongest of the week, but definitely suffers from Middle Book Syndrome. The Guest List was great until it sort of fell apart for me at the end. Infinity Son and Thunderhead, however, I greatly enjoyed!

 

Books I am currently reading

The Whispers of War by Julia Kelly

Girls of Paper and Fire by Natasha Ngan

Dragonslayer by Duncan M. Hamilton

Robots of Dawn by Isaac Asimov

I’m currently reading four books with the temptation to read even more! I am in this weird mood where I feel like I must read all the things all the time. There’s a pretty wide variety here, and nothing has quite taken priority as my main book of the moment! I will, however, likely make that book The Whispers of War.

 

Books I bought

None. Woohoo!

 

Books post

Infinity Son by Adam Silvera

Girls of Storm and Shadow by Natasha Ngan

The Good Luck Girls by Charlotte Nicole Davis

Starsight by Brandon Sanderson

I’ve been lucky enough to recieve some amazing book post over the past week or so! Girls of Storm and Shadow was a generous giveaway prize and my friend Nikki sent me a copy of Good Luck Girls (!!). I had requested both Infinity Son and Starsight and they showed up by surprise!

 

Netgalley approvals

The Shadow Saint by Gareth Hanrahan

The Unlikely Escape of Uriah Heep by H. G. Parry

  1. Ah, The Gutter Prayer is definitely one I did not have time to get to this year. I’m reading The Toll right now and man, is this a fantastic series! I need to get to my copy of the sequel for Girls of Paper and Fire…well, I need to get to my copy of a lot of things.😅
