Weekly Wrap Up and Stacking the Shelves

Weekly Wrap Up

I have been so crazy busy lately I have only finished one book, rather sad about that tbh. But even tho I only finished that one I have really really enjoyed it. It took me back to the genre that really got me reading a lot in the past few years, paranormal, fantasy, YA...

The book I have finished is A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas. It's all about Fairies, fantasy, magic and plenty of it. I have fallen in love with that genre some time back and there was a time when that was all I would read, fairies, vampires, wolves, witches, that was what I loved most. And while I still do, no matter my age now, I am glad that blogging has opened my eyes to many other amazing genres. I have read many books that I normally wouldn't have picked up and I am looking forward to more surprises. 

Blurp:When nineteen-year-old huntress Feyre kills a wolf in the woods, a beast-like creature arrives to demand retribution for it. Dragged to a treacherous magical land she only knows about from legends, Feyre discovers that her captor is not an animal, but Tamlin—one of the lethal, immortal faeries who once ruled their world.

As she dwells on his estate, her feelings for Tamlin transform from icy hostility into a fiery passion that burns through every lie and warning she's been told about the beautiful, dangerous world of the Fae. But an ancient, wicked shadow grows over the faerie lands, and Feyre must find a way to stop it... or doom Tamlin—and his world—forever.

I have managed to stay away from NetGalley this past week, yay!! Altho I plan to finish at least one book I have of NetGalley this week. I have managed to add to books to my collection this week. 

Secrets in Phoenix has been send to me by Oftomes Publishings and I am so so excited to be able to review for them. I love he stuff they are releasing and I am looking forward to hopefully be able to help out this new young and fresh company. Can't wait to read it, my review will be up sometime in December.

Blurp:When Sophie Ballester and her twin brothers Sam and Todd are uprooted from their home and sent to a remote boarding school run by their Great Aunt Ness, they stumble upon a hidden room that holds a secret—a secret that will change everything.

The people of Phoenix Holt are not what they seem.

In fact, nothing is.

I also received beautiful bookmail from Black and White Publishing, Don't be afraid by Daniela Sacerdoti. This is a slightly new genre to me but I am totally looking forward to reading this. It will be published 14th January in paperback original. Expect a review of this before the release date. 

Blurp:When you've forgotten how to live, help can arrive in mysterious ways...

Successful artist Isabel Ramsay has never come to terms with the tragic death of her mother. Haunted by what happened, Isabel finds her own life spiralling out of control until, one winter s day, she gives up, unable to bear the pain of living any longer. Yet somehow she wakes up, remembering a vision of a mysterious woman who has saved her. But alone in a locked house, surely that's impossible?

With her family and friends worried out of their minds, her husband Angus finds a companion to watch over Isabel while he's away from home. Warm, wise Clara can connect with Isabel in a way no one else can, helping her face up to her painful past, rediscover her passion for art and become brave enough to live her life again. But there s a mystery surrounding Clara: who is she, and why does Isabel feel she's known her all her life?

So this was my bookish week. Let's do this again next week.
