Weekly Roundup

Posted August 8, 2020 by Nicky in General / 20 Comments

Greetings, folks! This has been a good week for ARCs, and passable for reading… and I have my replacement ereader now, so I can get back to some neglected library books. Hurrah! It’s also been pretty busy in terms of posting reviews, which I hadn’t realised until starting this post. Whoa!

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

Books acquired:

Cover of Queen of the Conquered by Kacen Callender Cover of Crowning Soul by Sahira Javaid Cover of Across the Green Grass Fields by Seanan McGuire Cover of When the Tiger Came Down The Mountain by Nghi Vo

Cover of Remote Control by Nnedi Okorafor Cover of A History of What Comes Next by Sylvain Neuvel Cover of The Right Sort of Man by Allison Montclair

Thank you to the publishers who let me have ARCs (mostly Tor!) and also the two lovelies who have bought me books this week. You know how to spoil a Nicky, and it’s appreciated deeply.

Books read this week:

Cover of Mystery at Olympia by John Rhode Cover of Lock In by John Scalzi Cover of Head On by John Scalzi Cover of A Scream in Soho by John G. Brandon Cover of The Perilous Life of Jade Yeo by Zen Cho

Reviews posted this week:

Other posts:

  • Top Ten Tuesday: Books With Colours in the Title. A motley bunch! Most of which I haven’t read yet, actually…
  • WWW Wednesday. The usual update, discussing A Scream in Soho and John Scalzi.
  • Hobbit Birthday. Giveaway still going on! Open worldwide; £50 to spend at Portal Bookshop for one winner, £15 for two others. (It’s possible to figure out a different bookshop if Portal don’t ship to you!)

Whoa, that took some rounding up.

So how’re you folks? Been reading anything good, or stacking your shelves with anything shiny? I got my finished copy of Seven Devils as well, this week, so that’s something to look forward to!

  1. Some great covers featuring on your blog this week! I love the snake and tiger covers! This weekend I’ve read more Paddington, an Enid Blyton book and a couple of horror novellas. I’m hoping for a good book week and I also hope Lisa is feeling better!

    • That sounds like such an odd mix, but perfect for you… I think I’ve said that already! And thanks for asking — she’s fully recovered now!

    • I hear it’s quite a quick read, if that helps! I’m actually trying to read Brit(ish) by Afua Hirsch and I just got totally bogged down in it… need to get back to that!

      Thanks for dropping by. 🙂

    • I probably don’t spend as long over them as some other folks! People writing long reviews always stun me, haha. Thanks for dropping by. 😀

    • Ooh, good to know. I’ve been trying to read a bunch of different books on the subject, to hear from a range of experiences. Looking forward to this one!
