Weekly Roundup

Posted May 11, 2019 by Nicky in General / 6 Comments

How’s it been another week already?! Yet, here we are… It’s felt like a busy week, I’m not sure how much reading I even got done. I guess we’ll find out as I write this post!

Books acquired:

Cover of Storm of Locusts by Rebecca Roanhorse

Books read this week:

Cover of Sixteen Ways to Defend a Walled City by K.J. Parker Cover of Trail of Lightning by Rebecca Roanhorse Cover of Snowspelled by Stephanie Burgis

Reviews posted:

Sixteen Ways to Defend a Walled City, by K.J. Parker. I ended up entirely on the fence about this on just about every point. I didn’t dislike it, but I didn’t love it. 3/5 stars
Inheritors of the Earth, by Chris D. Thomas. I found myself in agreement with so much of this. Smart, hopeful, and unexpected. 4/5 stars
In An Absent Dream, by Seanan McGuire. On one level this really stuck with me — am I giving fair value? But at the same time I felt like there was a distance that got in my way. 3/5 stars
Uprooted, by Naomi Novik. Sat down and just steamed through rereading this, though I still have some reservations! 4/5 stars
Snowspelled, by Stephanie Burgis. A short bit of fun with an interesting world we barely get to glimpse! 3/5 stars
The Incredible Crime, by Lois Austen-Leigh. Meehhhh. Horrible romance plot and not that fascinating a mystery. 2/5 stars
Magic Bites, by Ilona Andrews. A very fun reread. I do enjoy the worldbuilding a lot. 4/5 stars

Trail of Lightning Readalong. My thoughts on the first week of questions!
WWW Wednesday. The usual weekly update!

By the way, if anyone wants to hang out on a site that’s a bit like Twitter for books, a bit more like Instagram solely for books, Litsy’s now on the web as well as on mobile! Find me here!

How’s everyone doing? Busy week? Dead tired? Good book? Let me know!

  1. Litsy looks like fun! I like the idea of keeping it away from Google as well. I might just think about signing up when time allows as I’m only really on Twitter so I can follow a few series I like and watch the football tweets each weekend!


    Ahem. What a week. I’m drowning at work, so not Wyrd and Wondering as much as I’d like but loving the bits I’m ducking in and out of! I am forcing myself to pace my reading on the read-alongs by chewing through some Subjective Chaos nominees at the same time, which isn’t necessarily doing the nominees any favours (nothing like force-feeding yourself a book you’re not enjoying anyway when you’ve got a reread on the go that you love). Absolutely knackered though; this job is sapping my energy big time, which is a bit of a worry as I’m off to Chicago next weekend where I’m expected to be sparkly and clever. Erm 😀 Maybe I can sleep on the plane 😉

    • It did!

      I wanted to read more solidly for Wyrd & Wonder, but it’s fallen apart a bit this week. Still, I can get back into it! *waves books excitedly*
