Sunday Summary – 29 October 2017

Good morning everybody!!

I cannot believe it is nearly November already!! Hasn’t that just flown by?! It always amazes me how days or weeks can feel like they are dragging on, yet from a different perspective, time seems to be running away from us!

 

Books Read

So, after my last Sunday Summary last week, I did manage to finish IT by Stephen King at about 11pm! I have never felt so happy to finish a book and be content with the way it ended. I also published my review on Friday, so if you would like to check that out, here’s a cheeky little link!

Following on from IT, I was hoping to enjoy a couple of smaller reads from authors I haven’t picked up in a while, as a nice way to round off the month. Sounds like a plan, right?

Time to confess that I’m an idiot. I decided I wanted to read The Way of Kings by Brandon Sanderson and The Black Prism by Brent Weeks, not realising that the former of those books is just over a thousand pages long in itself.

So I’m currently working my way through this second epic in a row. I am currently about 40% through and I am enjoying it, but I can’t seem to read it at the kind of pace I would like. Perhaps I have burned out a little?

Needless to say, given that I am going to struggle to read The Way of Kings before the end of the month, I am going to postpone The Black Prism to next month. It’s a shame, but what can I do?

 

Books Discovered

I didn’t spend a single penny on books this week!! I dread to think the last time that happened…

That isn’t to say I didn’t acquire a couple of books though!!

 

I downloaded Ekata: Fall of Darkness by Dominique Law via Netgalley.

I also received a copy of Zero Debt: Break the Debt Cycle and Reclaim Your Life by Neeraj Deginal via The Book Club, so thank you very much for getting me in touch with the author.

I’ll admit this isn’t a typical read for me, but I figured it could have some worthwhile information or advice. Let’s face it, at some point in our lives 99% of us have some kind of debt, arranged or not. I would imagine we would only think about taking on any debt management advice when it’s too late and the vicious cycle already has its grip on you. I figured this to be a great opportunity to get one step ahead!

 

Coming Up…

Next week brings us both Halloween and the beginning of a new month, so on Tuesday, I’ll be publishing my reading list for November. I’m also looking forward to working with a couple of authors who have provided me with copies of their books in exchange for reviews! No spoilers now – you’ll have to check out my post on Tuesday!

I also need to give myself some breathing space from reviews and catch up reading, so I am going to be publishing another “Down the TBR Hole” post on Friday. I think I’ll be adventurous again and sort through the next ten books on the list! I hope you can join me for that.

As ever, I’ll also be rounding up the week as usual.

So that has been my week… how about yours? What are you reading? I’d love to hear from you!!

  1. ‘Way of Kings’ is such a great book! If you like it as much as I did, you might want to jump straight into ‘Words of Radiance’ after that, which is just as big πŸ˜€
    I tried ‘Black Prism’ as well but wasn’t a fan and did not finish it. I just couldn’t connect with any of the characters, although I liked the concept of magic in it. I know lots of people who like it though!

    1. I certainly am enjoying it!! It was always something I planned to read, but it was also recommended to me by a friend. I pulled it forward in the list based on that 😊

      I’ve only read the β€˜Nightangel’ series by Brent Weeks so far, so I’m interested to try this other series. I haven’t read any of his books for a good few years I don’t think πŸ€” I’ll have to see what I make of it!!

      Thanks for your comments 😊
