After having such a productive week on the blog last week, this week was pitiful by comparison. Eh. Such is life.
*Weekly Wrap-Up is a weekly post where I feature what posts were published on the blog for the past week, any bookish/blog happenings, what I recently finished reading, what I am currently reading, and what I will be reading next.
This week on the blog:
My autographed copy of Neverland Wars arrived this week! I won this on a Twitter giveaway from the author herself. Isn’t this cover stunning?
I also received this book all the way from Ireland. The author contacted me about reading his middle grade book James Clyde and the Diamonds of Orchestra. I agreed to review this book as I thought it might be fun for my son and I to read & review a book together.
He even personalized it to my son and I.
Recently finished reading:
Ehhh. There were some things I really enjoyed, like the dialogue between characters and the friendship theme, HOWEVER there were some things I would have liked to see done differently. Also, I think the word “cliché” was WAY overused…. annoyingly so.
This was my first Neil Gaiman novel and I must say I thoroughly enjoyed it! Audiobook is the way to go with Neil Gaiman, as he is a brilliant narrator. This is the perfect book to pick up in October as it would be a perfect Halloween read.
I am not very far into this yet, but I am very intrigued with the premise. This is a WWII retelling with a science fiction spin.
I’m not one for “fluffy books” but this author is going to be attending the BBTB book festival, so I thought I would give it a shot. I am listening to this via audiobook and the narrator is not my favorite, but I’m still enjoying it so far.
My son and I are about 15% in. So far, so good. My son is really into reading & reviewing his very first book 🙂
The next book on my BBTB book festival TBR.
