It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? is hosted by The Book Date.
I’ve been doing a bit of blog housekeeping this week, including making my mobile template a little less rubbish. Google short links seem to have stopped working already, so I’m down to manual sharing on all social media now. I’m better at Twitter but if you follow me on Facebook, sorry! One day I will get round to redesigning my blog and moving to self-hosted WordPress, I just prefer to spend my time reading.
This Week I Finished:
Red Snow by Will Dean ☆☆☆☆
I loved revisiting Gavrik in this follow up to Dark Pines. Great, snowy atmosphere and I can highly recommend the audiobook narrated by Maya Lindh who is perfect as Tuva.
POPSUGAR: 23. A book set in Scandinavia
ATY: 28. A book related to something cold
Two Can Keep a Secret by Karen M. McManus ☆☆☆☆
This YA thriller kept my attention and I didn’t guess who was behind the missing girls. Not quite as good as her debut.
POPSUGAR: 19. A book told from multiple POVs
ATY: 16. A book told from multiple perspectives
From Twinkle, With Love by Sandhya Menon ☆☆☆
I was disappointed in this, as I was hoping for a cute romance, but really it’s about how insecurities can make you mean. Twinkle was pretty horrible for a chunk of the book and I just wasn’t in the mood for that kind of character.
POPSUGAR: 29. A book with LOVE in the title
This Week’s Reviews:
Golden State by Ben H. Winters ☆☆☆☆
Hag-Seed by Margaret Atwood ☆☆☆
The Last by Hanna Jameson ☆☆☆☆
Scully’s “please feed me face” sums up my current mood quite well. Weekend plans were cancelled this week as I have developed a sore throat and cough. I’m hoping it’s not going to turn into a bad cold.
I’m trying out a Scribd subscription and so far I’m not impressed. The sound quality was terrible on the first one I tried, even after downloading it. The second doesn’t seem quite so bad, but I don’t think I’ll be continuing it past the free trial. If you’d like to try it out too, my referral link should get you two free months instead of one (and I get an extra free month).
