Weekly Book Round Up! 20th October

Weekly Book Round Up!

Another busy week! I hit my Goodreads target of 160 books which is craaaaazy. Received some lovely books for review this week and somehow ended up buying books (someone please restrain me!). Also had some exciting posts up on the blog, all of which is recapped below. Enjoy!

Received for review:

Curve by Nicola Hudson

The author got in touch with me this week after seeing I'd commented on another blog expressing interest in this book. I've already read it and my review will be coming this week! Thanks to Nicola for the review copy.

 Tregarthur's Promise by Alex Mellanby
Blinded by the Light by Joe Kipling

The lovely Sonia from Cillian Press contacted me about reviewing their first two YA titles. I've already finished Blinded by the Light which I really enjoyed. Thanks Cillian Press! 

Library books:

Code by Kathy and Brendan Reichs
The Diamond of Drury Lane by Julia Golding
Eve and Adam by Michael Grant and Katherine Applegate

So I didn't really need more books but I couldn't resist these when I popped in the main library in my city centre this week. Code is the third book in the Virals series which I've been really enjoying. I can't wait to get back into that series. The Diamond of Drury Lane was recommended to me in a blog post where I asked for historical recommendations. And Eve and Adam has been on my Goodreads list for ages.


Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them by J. K. Rowling

I had a copy of this when I was a kid and it somehow got lost over the years, so I popped in my local indie bookshop to grab a new copy.

Crown of Midnight by Sarah J. Maas

This was on Kindle sale this week. I have Throne of Glass on my Kindle but I haven't read it yet. I'm hoping owning the sequel will give me a bit of motivation! I've heard incredible things about this series so I can't wait to dive in.

The Ruby in the Smoke by Phillip Pullman

This is another book I swear I owned as a child, but don't remember reading. My friend recommended it to me this week so when it jumped out at me in the charity shop I just had to have it!


Night Witches by L. J. Adlington

This is a really awesome story how I came by this one. The author of Night Witches popped into the same independent bookshop I visited as part of Books are my Bag and the bookseller there put us in touch with each other and Lucy very kindly offered to send me a copy of her book to review. I was even more excited because I already owned the bookmark (pictured) and had been dying to read the book! Huge thank you to Lucy and Phillipa at The Little Apple Bookshop for making this happen.

Currently reading: 
Night Witches by L. J. Adlington
Crash Into You by Katie McGarry
Frostbite by Richelle Mead

I'm reading all of the books right now. I just couldn't resist starting Crash Into You, but it's on the backburner whilst I get some other books out the way. I am loving it so far though. I'm reading Frostbite with Daisy from FangirlDaily/AThousandLivesofDais so I'm super excited to be reading along with her!

Books finished:
Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell
The Contaminants by Devin K. Smyth
Twilight by Stephanie Meyer
Blinded by the Light by Joe Kipling
Curve by Nicola Hudson
