Weekly Roundup

Posted May 3, 2020 by Nicky in General / 6 Comments

Good afternoon, folks! I hoped to do this yesterday, but I had work and other stuff that needed to be done, boo. So it’s been a quiet week around here, with a lot less reading.

Linking up with The Sunday Post @ The Caffeinated Reviewer and Stacking the Shelves @ Reading Reality & Tynga’s Reviews.

New books:

Cover of A Dangerous Collaboration by Deanna Raybourn Cover of A Murderous Relation by Deanna Raybourn Cover of Empire of Sand by Tasha Suri

Thank you to my wife for two of these, and to Moon Dreams for Empire of Sand in her cool giveaway on Twitter! <3

I’m looking forward to a few different book orders (two indie bookshops, one second-hand bookshop) to come in, with great impatience. Feeling the need for some bookish comforts, at the moment!

Read this week:

Cover of A Treacherous Curse by Deanna Raybourn Cover of Grave Importance by Vivian Shaw

Reviews posted this week:

The Voyage of the Dawn Treader, by C.S. Lewis. Still pretty wonderful, to my mind! 4/5 stars
A Treacherous Curse, by Deanna Raybourn. Bags of fun, as expected; the mystery’s kind of background to the will-they-won’t-they, for me. 4/5 stars
The Silver Chair, by C.S. Lewis. Never my favourite, so not surprisingly, I still didn’t really jive with it. 2/5 stars
The Steerswoman, by Rosemary Kirstein. Aarrgghhh so much I still want to know! 4/5 stars
Grave Importance, by Vivian Shaw. Lovely lovely lovely. Excellent ending to the series, though I didn’t love one specific aspect of it. 4/5 stars

Other posts:

WWW Wednesday. This week it was mostly about Grave Importance!
Wyrd and Wonder: A TBR. Ready for May’s fantasy reading event!

Out and about:

NEAT science: ‘Soap versus virus.‘ Been wondering why soap is the #1 recommendation to avoid catching SARS-CoV-2? A quick explanation of why soap is ideal.

There we go; that’s it for this week! How’s everyone doing?

  1. Grats on Empire of Sand! I enjoyed that one, though it might have been weaker because it was the first of a series and needed some time to develop…which reminds me, I should get cracking on the sequel.
