Update for the last couple of weeks

IMWAYR is hosted by The Book Date.

I didn’t do an update last week as I really didn’t have much to report. This week’s been quite quiet on the blog too, I think being busy as work means I don’t have to mental energy to write reviews when I get home. And then it was gorgeous weather this weekend just gone, so I did outside stuff.

You can catch up with what’s on my radar for March and I have a couple of giveaways coming up. I’ve bought loads of books this month, so I better hurry up and start reading them!

The blossom is starting to come out where I live, and the warmer weather has meant I made a start clearing up the front garden. We have loads of self-sown poppies coming up, but it does mean it looks a bit of a mess right now, but I’m sure it’ll be lovely when they are flowering.

This Fortnight I Finished:

The Migration by Helen Marshall [Gifted] ☆☆☆☆☆
Big ideas wrapped in a very human story, beautiful and thought-provoking, even hopeful. I loved it.

POPSUGAR: 41. A “cli-fi” (climate fiction) book

Black Leopard, Red Wolf by Marlon James ☆☆☆
Big, meandering story, parts I liked and other times I was just confused. Just don’t think his style is my cup of tea.

ATY: 32. A book with more than 500 pages

The River by Peter Heller [Gifted] ☆☆☆☆
I loved The Dog Stars by the same author and I liked this tale of two friends on a canoe trip into the wilds of Canada, with a dangerous edge to it. I cried.

POPSUGAR: 8. A book about a hobby

The Dry by Jane Harper ☆☆☆
This was a nice simple book to listen to after the Marlon James. Nothing amazing but good enough.

POPSUGAR: 47. Two books that share the same title
ATY: 36. A book featured on an NPR Best Books of the Year list

ATY: 12/52
Goodreads: 23/100

This Fortnight’s Reviews:

All the Lonely People by David Owen ☆☆☆☆

I Was Born For This by Alice Oseman ☆☆☆☆☆


Reading: The Kingdom of Copper by S.A. Chakraborty
Listening to: The Salt Path by Raynor Winn

    Wow! You're lucky to be getting warmer weather already! I've been seeing good reviews of the Peter Heller book and I'm curious about the S.A. Chakraborty book. Is that part of a series?

      The City of Brass is the first book and it was my favourite fantasy of last year. I highly recommend it!
