Another week without having purchased any new books! Surely I deserve some kind of reward, like a new bo — oh. Oh well! Here’s the books I’ve finished this week:
Plenty of reading this week — some of it very last minute, actually.
Just two books acquired this week — two review copies via Netgalley, Less Than Three Press and Hot Key Books:
I’m not a big fan of the cover, but apparently this is part of a set of books which will focus on aromantic and asexual characters. That I can get behind, and I enjoyed Sasha L. Miller’s The Errant Prince. So I’m excited about the whole idea, and I enjoyed the story.
And now the weekly roundup:
Reviews this week:
–Unnatural Creatures, ed. Neil Gaiman. Fun theme and a bunch of great stories, some old and some new. 4/5 stars
–A Portrait of the Brain, by Adam Zeman. Disappointingly simplistic and not really suited to my level of understanding, but probably a good starting point for those interested in neurology. 2/5 stars
–Impulse, by Dave Bara. A fun enough space opera that didn’t really shine. 2/5 stars
–This Savage Song, by Victoria Schwab. Monsters and humans and an interesting world set-up, oh my! I really enjoyed this and recommend it. 4/5 stars
–The Frog Princess, by E.D. Baker. A favourite of my sister’s, I thought this was cute, though slight and very much aimed at the middle grade. 3/5 stars
–The Castlemaine Murders, by Kerry Greenwood. It’s Phryne, so it was fun, but it was lacking the spark that made some of the other books great. 3/5 stars
–Flashback Friday: Memory, Sorrow and Thorn, by Tad Williams. This is a whopping big series with four huge volumes, which is about the only reason I haven’t read it since I was eighteen. It’s typical, in some ways: a scullery boy becomes… well, you’ll see. 4/5 stars
–Top Ten Tuesday: Books Recently Added To My TBR. What it says on the tin — some books I’ve got, some books I’m hankering after.
How’s everyone been doing? Hope you’ve all been reading tons, and adding great books to your shelves!
