WRAP UP| February 2018

Books carrying on into March:

  • Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell by Susanna Clarke (I AM SO CLOSE TO FINISHING)
  • Assassin's Apprentice by Robin Hobb
  • The Fifth Season by N.K. Jemisin
  • The Bitter Twins by Jen Williams

Books and stories I finished:

The Courtship of Mr Lyon
Angela Carter

I read another short story from Angela Carter's The Bloody Chamber short story collection.

Kings of the Wyld (The Band #1)
Nicholas Eames

I loved this one! I have one complaint and that was in Eames' representation of women. They were rather the enemy of every situation- like no thanks.
Although, the second book in the series is following a female protagonist so we'll see how I feel after that one and if I'll read book 3.

Good Omens
Terry Pratchett; Neil Gaiman

I didn't realise what my top 5 books of all time really were until I felt the deepest grandest desire to reread this one. This is so much fun to read, and what a dream team?! Gaiman and Pratchett- this book envisions exactly what you would think that would be.

I'm Starved for You
Margret Atwood

It was alright. Nothing really stuck out at me. But, it did leave me wanting to pick up one of her novels and try out more of Atwood's writing.
The Waking Land (The Waking Land #1)
Callie Bates

I participated in the blog tour with Hodder & Stoughton with this one, but I wasn't to enthralled  by it and probably won't be picking up the sequel anytime soon.

You can read the full review here.

The Quantity Theory of Insanity
SHORT STORY READ: The North London Book of the Dead
Will Self

I thoroughly liked the concept and execution of this one.  Quite a lof of London-centric humour that I liked, even though quite a few people in my class didn't get from not being familiar with it.
