It’s been a quiet reading week, but the acquisitions have been rolling in. It’s not as bad as it looks, though; some of these were bought a week or two ago and only just arrived. There’ll be another box of books soon, too…

Reviews posted this week:

Widdershins, by Jordan L. Hawk. A fun mystery/romance, very much in K.J. Charles’ line. 4/5 stars
Exploring English Castles, by Edd Morris. Neither fish nor fowl, really; not that great despite some pretty photos. 2/5 stars

  1. I’ve been curious about Last Smile in Sunder City – I look forward to your thoughts on that one. I finally finished Kingdom of Souls this week, which is good and just not my bag although I still struggle to pinpoint what it is about so many YA titles (so for now I’ll leave it at ‘I’m not the target audience anyway, and that’s fine’). I’m relishing The Goblin Emperor – partly by contrast, I suppose, but mostly because it’s just so good 🙂

    Otherwise, this weekend has been mostly about baking and feeling smug that I didn’t cock any of it up. All my practice seems to be paying off – we breakfasted on homemade croissants this morning. Yum.

    • The Last Smile in Sunder City sounds like fun, so I’m looking forward to it! I read the preview to make my mind up and was veryyyy curious.

      Oooh, croissants…
