Weekly Roundup

Posted April 6, 2019 by Nicky in Reviews / 7 Comments

Good morning, folks! As we speak, I’m off for a few days in Belgium, hanging out with my in-laws and so on. So this is totally prepared in advance! Here’s hoping it’s been an acceptable week…

Books read this week:

Cover of The Edge of Memory by Patrick Nunn Cover of Life in a Medieval Castle by Francis Gies and Joseph Gies Cover of Catullus' Bedspread by Daisy Dunn

Cover of The Bull of Minos by Leonard Cottrell Cover of Clouds of Witness by Dorothy L. Sayers Cover of Searching for the Lost Tombs of Egypt by Chris Naunton

Reviews posted this week:

Watch the Wall, my Darling, by Jane Aiken Hodge. Really disappointing and badly paced. 1/5 stars
The Mummies of Ürümchi, by Elizabeth Wayland Barber. Fascinating, especially as it deals a lot with the preserved fabrics! 4/5 stars
Glamour in Glass, by Mary Robinette Kowal. This is where this series really takes off for me, and I enjoyed it just as much a second time. 4/5 stars
Whose Body? by Dorothy L. Sayers. The usual good time. It’s Lord Peter! 4/5 stars
Lucy: The Beginnings of Mankind, by Donald Johanson. This is hardly new and groundbreaking at this point, but it’s still fascinating, explaining a lot of the controversy and questions around Johanson’s findings. 4/5 stars
A Closed and Common Orbit, by Becky Chambers. Insert fannish flailing here. 5/5 stars

Other posts:

Top Ten Tuesday. This one’s all about what will prompt me to pick up a book!
WWW Wednesday. The usual weekly update!

So how’re you guys doing? I’m trying to get better again at replying to and returning comments, so I’ll be visiting back anyone who comments here.

  1. It was a really tough week this week – big deadlines, long hours, all the documentation. But we got there, so a good sense of achievement at the end – although I’d like to be spending this weekend dozing/reading instead of sorting out all our storage boxes yesterday and flying out to Copenhagen today for another big week of deadlines/documentation at work…. My reviewing has completely gone by the wayside; I’ve only got enough brain left for fun posts!

    On the plus side, I’m rereading The Tethered Mage, which is making even happier second time around than it did the first. Yay!

    Have an awesome time in Belgium 😀
