Weekly Wrap Up and Stacking the Shelves #30

Weekly Wrap Up...

So i have finally managed to finish Nevernight!!! Wow that has taken me some time but I got there in the end. YAY! Beside that I have managed to finish one more and that was The Trouble with Henry and Zoe. Which was a chic lit, not my usual stuff at all but I do like it now and then. So i am back to my 2 book weeks, which is fine. I am hoping to finish 3 next week as I am off work. But it wont be easy as i am spending two days at the YALC. Oh my gosh i am so excited... Altho I still have to figure out how to take my books home after haha. But here are the two I have finished this week.


Destined to destroy empires, Mia Covere is only ten years old when she is given her first lesson in death.

Six years later, the child raised in shadows takes her first steps towards keeping the promise she made on the day that she lost everything.

But the chance to strike against such powerful enemies will be fleeting, so if she is to have her revenge, Mia must become a weapon without equal. She must prove herself against the deadliest of friends and enemies, and survive the tutelage of murderers, liars and demons at the heart of a murder cult.

The Red Church is no Hogwarts, but Mia is no ordinary student.

The shadows love her. And they drink her fear.


Henry and Zoe have more in common than they realise. For a start, they both have pasts they'd rather leave behind.

After jilting his childhood sweetheart on the eve of their wedding in the small town where they both grew up, Henry runs away to London, planning to reinvent himself and start afresh.

Zoe has her own healing to do and so she plans to leave London, travel the world, and figure out just what it is she wants out of life. She doesn't know where she's going, but she is determined to go there alone.

If Henry and Zoe had met one year ago, perhaps things could have worked out differently. But that's not the way it works; they meet seven months after their worlds have been turned upside down. And four months before Zoe is due to climb on a plane...

Stacking the Shelves...

This week i have receiver two amazing books. The first one was a total surprise!! Thank you so much Corvus books i do love a surprise very much. This book is so so cute too, i love the shape and size of it, it will very much stand out on my shelves. The second book is The Creeper Man, woah, it does sound creepy and i cant wait to read it, but first of all thank you to Sarah at Hachette Children for my copy which i will be taking to YALC and hopefully get signed.

Two former lovers reconnect in this beautiful and haunting tale of great lost love from the critically acclaimed author of The Headmaster's Wife

Deeply affecting and compulsively readable, The Headmaster's Wife was a breakout book for Thomas Christopher Greene. Now, Greene returns with a beautifully written, emotional new novel perfect for his growing audience.

Twenty-one years after they were driven apart by circumstances beyond their control, two former lovers have a chance encounter on a Manhattan street. What follows is a tense, suspenseful exploration of the many facets of enduring love. Told from altering points of view through time, If I Forget You tells the story of Henry Gold, a poet whose rise from poverty embodies the American dream, and Margot Fuller, the daughter of a prominent, wealthy family, and their unlikely, star-crossed love affair, complete with the secrets they carry when they find each other for the second time.

Written in lyrical prose, If I Forget You is at once a great love story, a novel of marriage, manners, and family, a meditation on the nature of art, a moving elegy to what it means to love and to lose, and how the choices we make can change our lives forever.

When Silla and her little sister, Nori, escape London and their abusive father, Aunt Cath's country house feels like a safe haven. Leaving the smog and fear behind, the girls have the love and freedom they never had in their violent home. But slowly, ever so slowly, things begin to unravel.

Aunt Cath locks herself in the attic and spends day and night pacing; every day the surrounding forest inches slowly towards the house; a mysterious boy appears from the enclosing wood offering friendship, and Nori claims that a man watches them from the dark forest. A man with no eyes who creeps ever closer. . .


  1. Oooo, I really enjoyed Nevernight! It was very good, and a little bit torturous with that ending! I can't wait to read book two. I hope you enjoy all of your new books!

    Have a fabulous week. :)

    Check out my STS post!

    1. I really enjoyed it too, altho I did find the beginning a little tough going. But it certainly leaves you wanting another one, right now! Ha ha Thanks :)

  2. I love the cover of If I Forgive You! It's so different from any other book I've seen. Happy reading!

  3. I read Nevernight recently. Crude sex scenes aside, I loved it. I had to really put some thought into why the sex bothered me and not the violence. I think it was the ages of the people in the bedroom scene. If they had been over 18, I wouldn't have been so put off by it. What did you think?
