Linking up with the usual crew for the Sunday meme at Kimba’s book blog.
~ On The Blog ~
This week I’ve posted a review about rogue mages! It was a fun read, as well as a fun review to write. I’ve also posted a review for Get Well Soon, but not on the blog – on Goodreads, and you can read it here if you want, but it wasn’t a great book.
~ Reading This Week ~
Reading this week has been uneventful. Bit of a slump content-wise!
The Finding of Martha Lost comes out next week and I was super hyped about it when I downloaded it. Trains, books, lost people and items? Sounds wonderful! Alas. It’s just plain weird, incoherent (at least, to me), I hate the MC, and the worst thing is that not even secret rainbow-color-coded libraries are saving the book! Now that’s sad. I am super disappointed.
I’m also finishing reading Quackery, a book I’ve told you about before. And although I’ve had to skip a few chapters about middle-ages surgery and eating mummies, it has been a very informative and fun book! Truly recommended.
I’ve also been finishing Shift, or more like… torturing it. Or torturing myself to finish it. Gah… Also so disappointed. The first book in the Silo series, Wool, has been simply brilliant, but Shift has just been a grating, dragging grey slab of boredom with wayyyy too many pages. I am disappoint, son.
When The English Fall has been the only gem this week! I’m loving it so far. Unfortunately, I have started reading it a little too early, cause it only gets published like a month later, so I had to pry myself away from it, but I’m totally loving it so far. It’s about these people of the old ways (not certain, Amish, something else?) living on while an apocalypse happens to the rest of us, although it’s not really affecting them, cause their entire world doesn’t hinge on electricity. So far it’s an amazingly written story, gripping from the get go. Can’t wait to be done with all the others and get back to this story.
~ Next Up On The Blog ~
Next week I will have a review for The Finding of Martha Lost, and I can promise you it will be fun. I didn’t like the book much, but I have plenty to say about it! In a pretty sarcastic way!
I’m also joining the Anne of Green Gables Readalong! If this book has been on your shelves for much too long, just as it’s been on mine, you can join us for the rest of the year here (link on the picture). Jane at the Greenish Bookshelf is hosting it and I am quite excited!

This week I found a delightful blog by Louise at Genie Reads! And she has shared something very relevant to most of us – how we struggle with requesting too many books! Here’s a post about Killing the Request Button on Netgalley.

This time I don’t have anything in particular to share, because I’m finally having a cozy weekend to share. So instead, I’m going to share a quote I LOVED from Felix Yz by Lisa Bunker, a book I will be reviewing soon. It’s super diverse and I urge you to check it out! It comes out June 6th and I’m sure you will love it.
