So, I’ve not been around here much lately! I’ve been on a bit of a hiatus and will probably not be here much for a little while longer. At the beginning of August, I hurt my shoulder and I’ve been in a lot of pain. I’ve been managing to work but not been able to use my computer or phone much. Or, unfortunately, do much reading! I have been listening to audiobooks though.
I just wanted to do a quick post to let you know I haven’t disappeared completely! I will be back, I’m just not sure when, as it depends how long my shoulder takes to get better. I’m also moving house at the end of September (talk about bad timing to have a painful shoulder!) so things are a bit hectic at the moment.
Here is a quick wrap up for July and August. Hopefully I will be back to posting more regularly again soon!
The Dark Days Club by Alison Goodman – ⭐⭐⭐.5
Days of Blood and Starlight by Laini Taylor – ⭐⭐⭐⭐.5
Queen of Coin and Whispers by Helen Corcoran – ⭐⭐⭐
A Darker Shade of Magic by V. E. Schwab – ⭐⭐⭐⭐
The Hobbit audiobook – ⭐⭐⭐⭐ ⭐
I got a book voucher for my birthday and I was able to go to a book shop in July for the first time since the pandemic which was incredibly exciting! I got The Invisible Library, The Poppy War, Pride and Premeditation, and The Cruel Prince. I also had pre-orders arrive for Six Crimson Cranes, The Wolf and the Woodsman, Fire With Fire, and Broken Web.

I really need to start the Daughters of Smoke and Bone series! I loved Strange The Dreamer but I’ve still not picked them up
They’re really good! I loved Daughter of Smoke and Bone so much, and the second book was amazing as well so I’m excited for the final book.
Oh no, I hope your shoulder heals fast!
Thank you! It seems to be slow progress getting better at the moment but hopefully it will get there.
I read and loved Daughter of Smoke and Bone years ago but for some reason never got around to the sequel. I feel like at this stage I would have to reread book one, which is a bit off-putting. Hope you feel better soon!
I had a couple year gap between the two. I looked up a summary of Daughter of Smoke and Bone and felt like I could remember enough to enjoy the second book, I really loved returning to the story and characters even after the gap.
Oooh good to know!
