Yey, it’s Saturday! So I’m trying out something new this week, by making A Week in Review into a wrap-up post for myself and the little bit of the blogosphere that I ran across this week. We’ll see how it goes ;-)
First, I finished up my audiobook of Days of Blood and Starlight, and it was awesome! I think I liked it even better than Daughter of Smoke and Bone since I’m not actually much of a romance person and there wasn’t that weird split between Karou and Madrigal. I’m having a little bit of trouble getting thoughts down at the moment, but I’ll figure something out :D.
It was then time for a new audiobook (since I was still in the middle of a long drive!) and so I busted out my iPod to cassette player converter and started my review copy of Crash. The narrator is taking a little getting used to, but I’m liking the premise so far! I was in the mood for something a little more urban paranormal YA, so this seems like it’ll be perfect.
I also (finally) finished Veil this week! My review is here and while it wasn’t a perfect book for me, it was certainly interesting ;-). If you are looking for a gritty sci-fi dystopia, this may be the book for you! And Aaron Overfield has released the three parts of the book separately now, so you don’t have to worry about buying the substantial volume all together if you aren’t sure.
Finally, I needed to take a break from review books and had borrowed this nice short book from my friend, called Dealing with Dragons, perfect for me right?? It’s a fantasy YA before YA exploded and it quite light-hearted with zero romance but lots of dragons. I’m loving it, and enjoying being able to hold the book without my arm getting sore ;-).
In case you missed it, these were my posts this week:
And now on to the reviews I thought you might be interested in from the rest of the blogosphere (below the fold):
So that was my week (and a half, oops), how about yours?? What did you start and finish? Get any new books or find reviews to drool over? Link me up! :D
