Weekly Roundup

Posted February 22, 2020 by Nicky in General / 4 Comments

Welllll, that was an anxiety-inducing game and a very disappointing outcome. If any of you visiting here are French and follow rugby… let’s not talk about it.

Anyway, it’s been a quiet week around here, but I got some new books!

Books acquired:

Cover of When the Dogs Don't Bark by Angela Gallop Cover of The Great Pretender by Susannah Cahalan Cover of The Five by Hallie Rubenhold

Reviewed this week:

Small Robots, by Thomas Heasman-Hunt. Just delightful. 5/5 stars
Heartstopper vol. 3, by Alice Oseman. Adorable as ever, though not pure fluff; the boys have a lot to deal with. 5/5 stars
One Corpse Too Many, by Ellis Peters. Love the historical setting and the way it shapes the mystery; loved a character I did not expect to love. 4/5 stars
When the Dogs Don’t Bark, by Angela Gallop. Interesting, though a bit unfocused. 3/5 stars

WWW Wednesday. This week I talked about E.C.R. Lorac’s Fell Murder, Angela Gallop’s When the Dogs Don’t Bark, Brother Cadfael, and Susannah Cahalan’s new book.

What’s everyone been reading?

  1. All three of your Books Acquired sound right up my alley and I am adding to my Want To Read shelf asap! I’ve been seeing the Heartstopper volumes floating around blogs, Goodreads and YouTube and I am interested in picking them up eventually 🙂

    I hope you have a great week!

    • I’ve read two of them and they were really interesting! Particularly The Five. 🙂 Oh, and Heartstopper’s totally adorable! If you ever want to give it a try before you buy, it’s actually originally a webcomic and there’s tons of it available online.
