WEEKLY WRAP-UP #WEEKINREADING (09/3/’20)

Hello Readers! I hope you all had great week. My week in reading felt little slow. The last book I finished was long and steady paced. Moreover, I didn’t feel like reading once or twice due to change in my daughter’s clock. I could get time in morning with post writing and reading blogs but then for the rest of the day I couldn’t do much as she was up from noon 12 to 2 or 3 a.m. No nap in between! That left no time to read at night as well. I don’t know how she gets that much energy. She wanted more attention due to teething problem. I’m in desperate need of vacation. It’s been 2 years, I haven’t gone anywhere, didn’t even watch movie in multiplex, or at home without break, and haven’t even gone for shopping. (online book shopping doesn’t count)

Anyway I still managed to read 2 books (with lots of break and interruption).

What I read last week-

The Call of Death by R.J. Garcia

49475423. sx318 sy475

This was different read. I enjoyed reading characters, psychic gift and mystery of stopping serial killer from killing loved one and innocent people. It was interesting, thrilling and well written book. You can read my review — HERE.

Blackthorn by Terry Tyler

48944517. sx318

This was long and steady paced dystopian novel. I didn’t realize it was part of series until I read author’s note/ acknowledgement at the end. It can perfectly read as standalone. I would like to read previous stories set in same world. They must be about what happened before this present story and how they created Blackthorn city. Anyway, this was amazing book. It was lot different than other post-apocalyptic world I read. I enjoyed the theme of faith and belief combined with oppressive ruler. I’m writing review on this. I’ll post it tomorrow.

What I’ll read next-

The Break Up by Tilly Tennant

50627236. sy475

What happens when Mr Right goes rogue?

Lara doesn’t have a back-up plan. So when her safe-bet boyfriend Lucien dumps her for her best friend, Lara’s world implodes. Life after the break up stretches bleakly ahead, lonely evenings on the sofa with only a bottle of wine and her grey cat Fluffy for company…

Down the road, Theo loves his job as a jazz musician, giving other people great nights out before coming home in the early hours and unwinding with his loyal cat Satchmo.

What they don’t know is that it’s the same cat.

And when they find out, standing in the streets in their pyjamas, both on the hunt for their lost pet, sparks of the wrong sort fly.

Lara can’t deny that Theo is one of the most gorgeous men she’s ever met, but she can see exactly why he’s still single. They do say opposites attract… but is she ready to move on? And when Lucien comes back into the picture, will she be tempted back to her life before the break up, or risk everything on the chance of something new?

A wonderfully warm will-they-won’t-they romantic read that will have you laughing one minute and crying the next. If you’re a fan of Jill Mansell and Carole Matthews, The Break Up is the love story you’ve been waiting for.
Previously titled: A Cat Called Cupid 

Last week only I received email the title is changed. This is new title. I liked the old one! I’ll see which one was more fitting once I read the book. I first saw this book on The Belgian Reviewer. As soon as I read Inge’s review, I knew I would like this and had to request it on NetGalley. Lucky me, I got approval. I hope to enjoy this one.

In the Shadow of the Hanging Tree by Michael A. McLellan

32886177. sy475

In 1865 a shadow hovers over the nation: the shadow lingers still…

Born into slavery, Henry’s young life is spent working in tobacco drying sheds on Missouri plantations. Freed at the onset of the Civil War, he’s alone, starving, and on the run from Confederate militiamen.

Five years later, Clara Hanfield, the daughter of a powerful New York shipping magnate, escapes her tyrannical father and travels west in pursuit of John Elliot, the man she loves. John, a U.S. Army lieutenant, was sent to the Dakota Territory where he discovers a government conspiracy to incite an all-out war with the Indians; a war meant to finally eliminate them as an obstacle to the westward expansion.

Henry finds himself caught in the middle.

Aided by Clara, John, and his native ally, Standing Elk, Henry must battle hatred, greed, and the ghosts of his past during this turbulent and troubling time in American history.

This is blog tour book. I almost forgot about this book until I received an email from Shannon in beginning of the month. It’s good my stop is next week, plenty time to read.

Let’s discuss!

    1. beats me! Yesterday, she was up since 11 a.m and took nap from 3 to 6 pm. i let her sleep so I can do my work. She was up since 6 pm and slept at 4 a.m. 10hrs! My husband took holiday so I could sleep till noon 12 but on regular day I only sleep for 5-6 hrs, depends how early she get to bed.
      I don’t get enough time to read and blog. Rest of the day I look after her, has household chores. Old maid was not doing her work properly so now house cleaning and all I’m doing myself. Anyway I’m going to my mom’s place this month end for vacation. That will give me plenty time to rest.
      I wish this teething problem is over soon and she start speaking asap. Half of the time goes in understanding what she actually wants and other half in making her understand do this and don’t do that!

      1. Oh my!! Sounds tough… This sleep timing being so out of sync for you seems so scary. Tell her to sleep more as once school starts there will be studies and homework and she will want to sleep all the time then.
        I hope at your mum’s place, you get lots of rest and it gets regularized for you soon

        1. My mom will wake her up early and set a routine accordingly. She tried first 7 month when I was there. it never worked at that time. 😅 I hope it will this time. In 8 month she will turn 2 and hopefully will learn to speak. I’m admitting her for kindergarten or nursery whatever is there for kids so small. That will fix her routine for sure by the time she is big enough for school.
