Weekly Wrap-Up: 31 January 2020

Happy Friday, all! Is it just me or does it feel like January has lasted approximately 12 years? I have no idea why it feels like the longest month, but it is finally at an end! Bring on February! Check out all the bookish things that have happened in my life this week!

Book Review: The Last Smile in Sunder City by Luke Arnold

I’m not familiar with Luke Arnold’s acting career, however I was still intrigued by his debut novel, The Last Smile in Sunder City. I had heard good things about it and was incredibly curious to try it for myself. I admit I was a little wary going in because the book seemed to have some similarities to The Dresden Files, a series that I very much dislike, however Sunder City proved to be exactly what I wanted from The Dresden Files. 

Book Review: Dark Matter by Michelle Paver

I’m not usually a horror reader -- I’m pretty much frightened of my own shadow -- but a lovely and trusted bookish friend had been telling me about Dark Matter for ages and it caught my interest. I was totally delighted to receive a copy from my Amazon wishlist from my amazing friend Jenn in December! I cracked it open and, for the first time in a long while, was unable to tear myself away. I was completely lost in this chilling ghost story and I loved it.

Book Review: A Big Ship at the Edge of the Universe by Alex White

A Big Ship at the Edge of the Universe is a book that caught my eye with its gorgeous cover, amazing blurbs (Nicholas Eames!), and fun premise. Despite buying it over a year ago, it sat on my shelf until January (typical) when I picked it up for a buddy read with my friend and fellow BookTuber Amber. Unfortunately, I came away from this book incredibly disappointed! The buddy read is the only thing that kept me from DNFing it early on.
