Melanie's Week in Review - June 16, 2013


I was back to work this week so back to the big commute with a lot to read. I am most disgruntled as my Kindle decided not to work before I went on holiday and despite my best efforts I failed to revive it. It was less than a year old but as it was a replacement the warranty was only for a measly 9 weeks or something equally ridiculous.  This was my 2nd replacement so needless to say  I am not amused it has broken so quickly.  This is where proprietary systems let us down. I am almost totally locked into having a Kindle now as I have several hundred books bought from Amazon and therefore, not compatible on other e-readers. I have been reading books on my iPad but its quite heavy and if its a crowded tube and I have to stand then reading on it is impossible. So it's the big debate whether I buy another Kindle and be annoyed with myself or by a Nook and convert all my books. Decisions, decisions.

Anyway I am sure you are bored of reading my big whiny tale so onto what I have read. I finished the last two books of the Eddie LaCrosse series by Alex Bledsoe - Dark Jenny and Wake of the Bloody Angel.  They were both great and I will be reviewing the whole series so keep your eye out for it.

I also finished Queen of the World by Ben Hennessy. I can't say I enjoyed it. I thought it was a tad dull and while the concept of mute heroine was a good one I don't think it worked. Or at least perhaps Hennessy needs to write Sarine a bit differently so that she is a bit more brave and less reliant on her companions.

Melanie's Week in Review - June 16, 2013Two of my sisters recommended a book to me which I immediately downloaded -The Firebird by Susanna Kearsley. It has started out to pretty engaging and hope it have it finished next week.

I have been SUPER naughty and ordered a bunch of books from NetGalley including The Big Reap by Chris.F Holm, God's War by Kameron Hurley, Three by Jay Posey and finally Shifting Selves by Mia Marshall. Now all I need to do is read these and I will be all set!

This is my last full week in my current job and I am super nervous about leaving after 9 years.  I am looking forward to my TBR to settle my nerves. Well, that's it for me so until next week Happy Reading!
