Weekly Recap May 2017 #4

Five books read this week; it has been insanely busy, and I am even too tired to read! Absolutely loved Daughter of the Burning City by Amanda Foody – I can’t wait to see the finished version with illustrations! The Potion Diaries was also a nice surprise – I definitely enjoyed it much more than I thought I would!

Cinnamon – Neil Gaiman, illustrated by Divya Srinivasan (3 stars)

Really cute little Indian folktale retold by Neil Gaiman. The illustrations by Divya Srinivasan are absolutely delightful! While it is very cute, I didn’t connect with the story and found myself more confused than entertained…

Miss Treadway & the Field of Stars – Miranda Emmerson (3 stars)

An historical fiction about a missing actress. Anna Treadway worked for Lanny Green and needs to discover what happened to her when she suddenly disappeared after a show. Covering issues such as racism and sexism, and the stigma of abortion and pregnancy in unmarried women, this book touched me more than I thought it would. It was easy to read, but was definitely not light fiction.

I went a little bit crazy this week……… Only paid for one, but in total, I accumulated 16 new books! OOPS! I really need to read more – FullSizeRenderI am not getting through my TBR fast enough and if I move it won’t be able to come with me!

  • Inkheart – Cornelia Funke
  • Inkspell – Cornelia Funke
  • Inkdeath – Cornelia Funke

I absolutely adored these books as a child! I have wanted to buy them for ages, but detest the new covers. One of my marvellous friends had the original covers and gave them to me from her own shelves. *crying happy tears* They are so beautiful, and I think that this calls for a reread!

  • Genuine Fraud – E. Lockhart
