Weekly Wrap Up and Stacking the Shelves #46

Weekly Wrap Up...

I have been off poorly most of the week, with an ear infection and a serious struggle with my balance. Thought I'd finish 3 books at least bit with my balance going it wasn't easy to concentrate on reading. However I have still managed to read my usual 2 books. Some seriously strong Fantasy books. I really enjoyed both. The first one was Ever The Hunted and the second one The Invasion Of The Tearling. After that I was very much in need of a contemporary, which I am about half way in now and am loving it. I think I nee to read some more contemporary and I really fancy some more new adult. 


With each passing day, Kelsea Glynn is growing into her new responsibilities as Queen of the Tearling. By stopping the shipments of slaves to the neighbouring kingdom of Mortmesne, she crossed the Red Queen, a brutal ruler whose power derives from dark magic, who is sending her fearsome army into the Tearling to take what is hers. And nothing can stop the invasion.
But as the Mort army draws ever closer, Kelsea develops a mysterious connection to a time before the Crossing, and she finds herself relying on a strange and possibly dangerous ally: a woman named Lily, fighting for her life in a world where being female can feel like a crime. The fate of the Tearling – and that of Kelsea’s own soul – may rest with Lily and her story, but Kelsea may not have enough time to find out.
In this dazzling sequel to her bestselling debut
The Queen of the Tearling, Erika Johansen brings back favourite characters, including the Mace and the Red Queen, and introduces unforgettable new players, adding exciting layers to her multidimensional tale of magic, mystery and a fierce young heroine.


Seventeen year-old Britta Flannery is at ease only in the woods with her dagger and bow. She spends her days tracking criminals alongside her father, the legendary bounty hunter for the King of Malam—that is, until her father is murdered. Now outcast and alone and having no rights to her father’s land or inheritance, she seeks refuge where she feels most safe: the Ever Woods. When Britta is caught poaching by the royal guard, instead of facing the noose she is offered a deal: her freedom in exchange for her father’s killer.

However, it’s not so simple.

The alleged killer is none other than Cohen McKay, her father’s former apprentice. The only friend she’s ever known. The boy she once loved who broke her heart. She must go on a dangerous quest in a world of warring kingdoms, mad kings, and dark magic to find the real killer. But Britta wields more power than she knows. And soon she will learn what has always made her different will make her a daunting and dangerous force.

Stacking the Shelves...

Most of this week has been rather quiet by my post box. All the way till Sunday nothing then I get a little surprise from Maximumpopboooks!! I didn't even realise I won this, The Diabolical is a book I had my eyes on for some time and I almost picked it up the night before while shopping. I just love a surprise and a good competition! 

On my kindle this week I have added Blurring The Lines, which is just what I need in between all the fantasy that I read :)
