This is definitely not an unstacking week! I bought five books this week, and received one to review as well. And I didn’t get much reading done at all… oops!
Received to review:
I’m quite excited about this one! I love McKillip’s work.
I’ve heard mixed things about Defy and Soundless, but I was curious anyway and had leftover euros to spend. So hurrah! And hey, I went three months without buying books…
Reviews this week:
–Kingfisher, Patricia McKillip. Her first novel in a long time, everyone’s very excited about this. And I think she delivers. 4/5 stars
–Queen of the Flowers, Kerry Greenwood. Fun and more personal/involving than the last couple of books. 4/5 stars
–Time’s Anvil: England, Archaeology and the Imagination, Richard Morris. A bit prone to rambling and tangents, but interesting. 3/5 stars
–Dreamsnake, Vonda N. McIntyre. A reread for me. Worth the second visit, though there’s a lot of things I’d still like to know! 4/5 stars
–Signal to Noise, Silvia Moreno-Garcia. Interesting ideas — magic in pop music and vinyl! 3/5 stars
–Flashback Friday: Camelot’s Honour, Sarah Zettel. Maybe the most influenced by Welsh mythology of the whole series, this is a comfort read for me. 4/5 stars
–Unpopular Opinions Tag. Want to know what series I think is overrated? Oh, and there’s an interesting discussion in the comments about the Grisha trilogy!
–ShelfLove Challenge Update. How am I doing on my yearly goals? Quite well, so far!
–Top Ten Tuesday: Historical Settings I Loved. What it says on the tin.
–February TBR. I’m planning to read a lot this month. Let’s see how laughably wrong my TBR pile is!
How’s everyone been this week? Reading more than me, I hope!
