Weekly Book Round Up! 25th August

 Weekly Book Round Up!

So after a crazy few weeks of Leakycon and other stuff, I'm finally starting to catch up with my reading and blogging. I visited the seaside this week so a little bit of train and beach reading helped things! Here's my latest recap of what I've read and posted about this week. Enjoy!

Currently reading: 

Slated by Teri Terry

This was one of the books I grabbed at Leakycon. I reached out on Twitter for help in choosing my next read and this was the winner! I'm loving it so far.

Books finished:
The Bone Season by Samantha Shannon
The Girl Next Door by Selene Castrovilla
Anywhere by J. Meyers
The Rainbow Maker's Tale by Melanie Cusick-Jones

I received The Girl Next Door as part of a blog tour and really enjoyed it, so keep an eye out for my review in September! And Anywhere was another review copy. My review should be up on Monday and you will not want to miss it because that book was freaking incredible! The Rainbow Maker's Tale was another review copy and it comes out in September. My review of The Bone Season is already up so check the link below!


Briar Rose by Jana Oliver

I won this via a Goodreads first reads giveaway and am super excited about the fact it's a fairy tale retelling! It hasn't arrived yet so I'll probably feature it again when I get my copy. Thanks Goodreads and Macmillan's Children's Books!

For review:

Anywhere by J. Meyers

I mentioned this earlier as I've already finished it, but huge thank you to J. Meyers for the review copy!

Skulk by Rosie Best

I saw this on a Waiting on Wednesday post a few weeks ago and it really piqued my interest (shapeshifting foxes? Yes please!) so I decided to take the plunge and request it on NetGalley. Huge thank you to Angry Robot/Strange Chemistry!


Pantomime by Laura Lam

I've been wanting to read this all year as it's a 2013 debut, and Strange Chemistry has some of their books available for 99p on Kindle right now. I couldn't resist!

Library holds:
Don't Judge a Girl by her Cover by Ally Carter
The School for Good and Evil by Soman Chainani

I'm so behind with the Gallagher Girls series and feel majorly bad about that, so I'm going to try and catch up! Don't Judge a Girl by her Cover is the third book in the series and I can't wait to read it. I've heard mixed things about The School for Good and Evil but I saw it whilst bookshop browsing this week and it looked so cute I very nearly bought it. I resisted and came straight home and placed a library hold instead!

Kindle freebies:
Submerged by Nicole Sobon
Untouched by Melody Grace

(Note: these were free at the time I downloaded them but may not be free now - sorry!)

  1. I really liked Slated, but I warn you you will want the sequel straight after! It wasn't published when I read Slated and it was SO FRUSTRATING. You got a great selection of books, and congratulations on winning the GR giveaway!
