Weekly Reading Wrap-Up: 11 January 2019

Happy Friday! It has been a roller coaster of a week and while I’ve been reading loads, I didn’t manage to finish anything (I shall explain in a moment).  Things might get a little erratic here on the blog as Scottish Fiance and I get all of the planning wrapped up for our wedding (just over four weeks to go!) and chase down RSVPs, but try not to miss me too much!

Book Review: Snapshot by Brandon Sanderson

I love a Brandon Sanderson novella.  Whether his stories are long or short, he always manages to deliver a solid book with his classic style of ending. I have really only read fantasy from him and was very interested to see what his science fiction stories are like.v

Book Review: All Systems Red by Martha Wells

Apparently this has been the Summer of the Novella for me -- I recently read the three books in the Wayward Children series by Seanan McGuire and The Blue Salt Road by Joanne M. Harris.  While novellas aren’t something I often read, I really feel like I’ve been missing out on great stories lately.  All Systems Red is a book I’ve been hearing amazing things about, so I decided to take a chance.

Book Review: Beneath the Sugar Sky by Seanan McGuire

The Wayward Children series has been quite a rollercoaster ride for me.  I absolutely adored Every Heart a Doorway and despised Down Among the Sticks and Bones.  I wasn’t entirely sure how to feel when I picked up Beneath the Sugar Sky, the third book in the series.  Would I be delighted? Disappointed? Underwhelmed? The first two books felt like they were written by two different people -- would I get the writing style I loved so much in Every Heart a Doorway back again?

Book Review: Every Heart a Doorway by Seanan McGuire

I didn’t really know what to expect from Every Heart a Doorway, but I liked the concept well enough.  I didn't actually read the synopsis because from what I had heard around the bookish community, this weemed like one of those books that you should just tumble into. I asked for it and the two sequels for my birthday and started right away.  Oh boy, oh boy. I never, ever, EVER say this, but I feel like this book was written for me.
