Weekly Reading Update 8th Jan 2018

This is the first weekly reading update of the year. One of my 2018 goals is  to check in weekly to share my current reads for the week and hopefully hear what you are reading too.

I have just finished an ARC for Melissa Albert’s The Hazel Wood, a fantasy YA with elements of a twisted fairy tale. I will post a review nearer to its publication date next month.

I have started Jenny Colgan’s The Endless Beach, also an ARC and would love to pause time so the to-do list can be forgotten so I can just read undisturbed. Her books always demand my attention once they are started.

Thank you NetGalley and publishers for allowing me the opportunity to have a sneak preview at books. I am so grateful.

Though I have read Murs Lafferty’s I Should be Writing, I am dipping in to complete the exercises.

Also Jennifer Gilmour’s debut novel Isolation Junction has been downloaded on my Kindle along with her second book Clipped Wings. If you can head over there now – Isolation Junction is available FREE for 5 days (8th – 12th Jan 2018) to raise awareness of domestic abuse. We will also hear more from Jennifer later in the week but in the meantime why not pop over to download your copy.

  1. I think its a fantastic idea, checking in weekly. Thank you also for including my debut novel with its promotion this week. I am currently reading Perfect Imperfections by Taryn Leigh, I have nearly finished it and then will be moving onto The Cocktail Bar by Isabella May. Jennifer


    1. Perfect Imperfections is a great read and makes you want to be able to soak up the hot sun rather than shiver over here.


  2. I don’t read fast enough to post every week – credit to you for that alone 😀 I’ll keep an eye out for your reviews on these although my tbr list is pretty big!
    I’m currently reading A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J Mass after seeing lots of recommendations and loving it! It’s actually quite close to what I’m writing, so it’s insightful in that sense too! And then naturally it’ll be on to the next so I reckon this trilogy will keep me going until March! 🙂
