Sunday Summary – 9th February 2020
It’s that time again folks! Yep, it’s time to write my Sunday Summary post and wrap-up everything that has been going on during the week. I hope you have all had a good one?
I kicked off the week by sharing my reading list for February. Just like last month, I have a number of blog tours that I am taking part in. So, this month’s list consists of four ARCs and two books for my Beat the Backlist challenge.
Next, I published a Shelf Control post on Friday. This week’s featured book has been on the TBR for nearly three years. Not as old as some of the books on my list, but still old enough! It reminds me a lot of a book I read and enjoyed not that long ago – Ctrl+S by Andy Briggs. If you enjoy science-fiction that focuses on virtual reality, you might be interested in checking it out!
Yesterday’s blog post was my second blog tour of the month. Regular readers of my blog may recognise the name of the author, as I have read and reviewed a number of her books now. One: Rage Vengeance Murder by K. J. McGillick is the epic conclusion to her Path of Deception and Betrayal series. If you haven’t read my review yet, well, why not – haha!
My top priority this week was finishing reading One, for what I hope are obvious reasons! I had only just started this last week, so I needed a reasonably quick turnaround. Thankfully, K. J. McGillick’s books are really easy to get into, so I finished on Thursday – well in time to draft my review.
The next book I picked up was The Mentor by Lee Matthew Goldberg. I have read most of this book as of writing this post. I’m now 75% of the way through and eager to get to the sinister conclusion of the novel. I really have no idea where it’s going to go so I’m crossing my fingers I’ll have the time to finish this tonight!
I did also start another book yesterday. Having read quite a bit yesterday after all the housework and boring jobs, I needed to change things up. So, I started the next book on my TBR. The Girl from the Workhouse is a historical saga novel as opposed to a dark psychological thriller. It was exactly what I needed. I only read the first few chapters, but I’ve made a decent start. As soon as I have finished reading The Mentor, I’ll be picking this up full-time.
Darkdawn – oh my goodness guys!! I must only have about two hours left and I can’t wait to finish it. I actually listened to a couple of hours or so today because I knew I was near the end. I’ll definitely have finished it by this time next week guys. Heads up, I’ll probably be gushing over it and equally really sad it’s over!
I’ve been naughty nice and added a few books over the last few weeks. However, I have been good this week and not added anything new. I should hope so too since my TBR has just topped 200 books again!
Less time adding and more time reading, eh?
I’m looking forward to next week for a number of reasons. I’m going to be sharing four posts over the course of the week, which I hope you can join me for.
One of my reviews is the first ARC I downloaded from a provider called Book Sirens – Fires of the Dead. I’ll be posting this on Tuesday. The other is for my third blog tour of the month – The Mentor, which will be published on Wednesday.
On Friday I’ll be sharing a First Lines Friday post. As always, the subject matter has yet to be decided, but I enjoy going through my books to find interesting intros to catch your eye!
Last but not least, I’ll be rounding up the week as I am now with a Sunday Summary.
I hope you have enjoyed today’s Sunday Summary post. What have you been reading this week? As always, I love to hear from you!
