Week in Review – 6 August 2017

Is anyone else sick of all this rain or is it just me? I mean, seriously, it’s supposed to be summer!

So my Sister and Niece arrived from Lincolnshire this week! I love having them in Bristol, I won’t see too much of them as I’m away from the end of next week and I have a busy week coming up but I will squeeze the time I have. I’m going to Lincolnshire at the end of the month to spend a week with them aswell so we can have some fun then!

Next week the blog will go quiet for a bit, I’m heading to Bloodstock Festival for some heavy metal! If you follow my social media I’m sure you will see lots of hilarity as I update with me in the mosh pits and other such nonsense! I’ll have the blog back on track the middle of the following week once I’ve recovered my hearing and my bruises have gone down!

The writing is going well, I’ve hit a few snags, but I’m working through them, I’m getting a good flow out so I’m pleased with that. I’m going to make a few changes around here over the coming weeks though as it’s all proving too much keeping up with my blog schedule, my life commitments and the time I want to put into writing.

Right, here is my bookish update for this week!

Book of the Month

So it’s that time again to pick another winning book, I swear I’m reading some amazing books this year and it just keeps getting harder to pick my top books. I’m dreading having to do the Top 10 in December!

Blackwing - Ed McDonaldBlackwing by EdMcDonald
When I thought about my book of the month this was the first book that came to my mind, it took me a week to even begin to think about how to put my thoughts into words, this was such an astounding piece of fiction. It has everything any fantasy fan could look for from a novel and is just so damn good. I’m not alone in thinking this either, every single review I have read for this book has been absolutely glowing.

What I’ve Read

Definitely seeing a drop with everything I’m doing at the moment, although The Final Empire is quite a tome so I can’t complain at managing that and four other books!

This week I shared an excerpt as part of The Sullivans Boxed Set Book Blitz, and excerpts from the Myths & Magic collection and The Little Cottage in the Country. A new month means a new TBR Topple poll, don’t miss out on voting! The Bookshelf this week featured blogger Kate from Bibliophile Book Club.

This is over the next couple of weeks until there will be another review post.

Week in Review – 18 June 2017

It’s been a fairly quiet week this week recovering from my surgery and slowly getting back onto my feet. It’s given me plenty of reading time though so I’m pleased with that!

There are still a couple of days left to vote in the TBR Topple poll if you haven’t already. This will determine which book from my TBR I have to read this month! The new poll will start the beginning of July.

So, onto my bookish update this week…
