Weekly Book Round Up! 5th - 18th August

 Weekly Book Round Up!

5th - 18th August

So this is a pretty big round up because I didn't post one whilst I was away at Leakycon, so this covers bits of stuff from before, during and after. I had an absolutely amazing time and I'm still on a Leakycon come down. Can we please go back and do it all again?! Links in this post go to Goodreads, Amazon or my own reviews.

 Currently reading:
The Bone Season by Samantha Shannon

Bought this at Leakycon! Already heard so many good things so I'm really excited to be reading it, and it's incredible so far. Such an intricate world and fast paced plot!

The Cuckoo's Calling by J. K. Rowling

Finished this this week. Probably won't review it on the blog but might over on Goodreads. I love crime fiction and this had that familiar feel of a good detective novel. I certainly enjoyed it more than The Causal Vacancy which I sadly didn't like...

Fearsome Dreamer by Laure Eve
The Bone Season by Samantha Shannon
Cruel Summer by James Dawson
Going Vintage by Lindsey Leavitt

Bought the first three at Leakycon to get signed and bought Going Vintage from Foyles!

Leakycon freebies:
Monument 14 by Emmy Laybourne
Slated by Teri Terry
Boy Nobody by Allen Zadoff
Obsidian Mirror by Catherine Fisher
Wither by Lauren DeStefano

The top four are from the Books With Bite stand and the Wither was from the Harry Potter Alliance's Apparating Library - where you donated a book and got one in exchange.

Kindle freebies:
Canary by Rachele Alpine
Jordyn by Tiffany King 

iBooks freebies:
Obsidian by Jennifer L. Arementrout
The Hunt by Andrew Fukuda
Young Sherlock Holmes: Death Cloud by Andrew Lane
Stormbreaker by Anthony Horowitz
 Evernight by Claudia Gray
The Iron King by Julie Kagawa

I was just casually browsing the iBooks store when I noticed how many amazing books were available for free! I've already read Evernight and The Iron King, but didn't own them. The others are books I've been wanting to read for ages so I was so excited! Particularly about Obsidian and Stormbreaker.

Sync Audio Freebies:
Enchanted by Alethea Kontis
Through the Looking-Glass by Lewis Carroll

For review:

The Rainbow Maker's Tale by Melanie Cusick-Jones
The Girl Next Door by Selene Castrovilla

I read the first book in the Ambrosia Sequence by Melaine Cusick-Jones (Hope's Daughter) and enjoyed it, so I'm really excited to read this one. This book is told from Balik's POV. I received The Girl Next Door as I'm on the blog tour in September so keep an eye out for my post then!


  1. I'm still so jealous you got to go to Leaky Con! You picked up so many awesome books! I really need to read Cruel Summer soon because I've heard amazing things about it.
    I'm so glad you're enjoying The Bone Season because I loved it.

    Happy reading, Sarah!

    1. I think I'll be reading Cruel Summer next because I've heard so many amazing things as well! I loved Hollow Pike by the same author. I'm hoping to finish The Bone Season today or tomorrow and get the review up this week! Can't wait to finish it - I've been absolutely hooked :D thank you for the lovely comment!
