Weekly Roundup

Posted March 29, 2020 by Nicky in General / 8 Comments

I said I’d get back to my normal format this week, but there’s not much to round up in the way of blog content. However, there’s plenty by way of books — yikes!

Received to review:

Cover of The Last Emperox by John Scalzi Cover of Phoenix Extravagant by Yoon Ha Lee Cover of Drift Wood by Marie Brennan Cover of A Good Duke is Hard to Find by Christina Britton

Cover of The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue by V.E. Schwab Cover of Goldilocks by Laura Lam Cover of Seven Endless Forests by April Genevieve Tucholke

Cover of Unconquerable Sun by Kate Elliott Cover of The Sin in the Steel by Ryan Van Loan Cover of Network Effect by Martha Wells

What a haul, right? Bless Netgalley.

New books purchased:

Cover of Digging Up Armageddon by Eric H. Cline Cover of Bringing Down The Duke by Evie Dunmore Cover of The Duchess Deception by Cat Sebastian Cover of The City We Became by N.K. Jemisin

My eclectic tastes are well on show in this post, huh?

I’ll skip the books read this week as there’s basically just one.

Reviews posted this week:

It Takes Two To Tumble, by Cat Sebastian. Cuuuute. 4/5 stars
A Gentleman Never Keeps Score, by Cat Sebastian. This is less all-out cute than the first book, though it is also sweet. 4/5 stars

Other posts:

WWW Wednesday. This week discussing Mark Kurlansky, Mira Grant and Cat Sebastian.
The Book Tempter’s TBR Challenge. Getting our TBRs down while in isolation? Well, maybe.

How’s everyone else doing? Reading anything good?

  1. I’m looking forward to the release of Murderbot for sure! I have splurged on a pile of books with the virus lockdown as an excuse even though I haven’t been reading much!

    • I’m excited to start reading it!

      I have a pile of books still in the mail, but no sign of them yet. *stares mournfully, especially since I’ll quarantine them for a few days before opening the packages*

  2. Carotène

    That’s a really impressive number of books 😮
    I’m at the beginning of The End of Eternity by Isaac Asimov, the combination of time travel and romance works really well for me. And there’s also a scientific mindset in Asimov that feels very familiar.
    Otherwise I’m reading Marie Kondo’s manga and throwing stuff away (including books. that’s somehow a relief)

    • I’m a little overwhelmed just at the thought, to be honest. o_o; But they’re so awesome!

      Ah, that sounds awesome. And yes, I’ve had that getting-rid-of-books-is-a-relief feeling; it feels wrong to say, but I did feel unburdened when I gently and gratefully took huge numbers of my long-neglected backlog to the book-recycling point.
