Weekly Wrap-Up (06/6/’20) #WeekinReading #WeeklyWrapup

Hello Readers! I hope you had great week. Last week I received July/Aug NetGalley blast. Most of the books are really interesting. I’m thinking to write haul post. Last week I read only 1 book. It took me more time to read it than expected but it was really good. And I arranged shelves twice, why? look at this pic-

When she finished taking out all books in last three shelves, she was literally throwing them in whole room. 😅 I watched The Alienist on Netflix. It was great thriller, real dark and I liked characters struggling with their own past. The end felt rushed. I exactly felt like Kreizler about the end, I wanted to know why.

What I read last week-

Dark Waters (Monica Kennedy #2) by G.R. Halliday

Dark and disturbing crime thriller that kept me on the edge throughout the book. Definitely not for squeamish or those who feel claustrophobic by descriptions of tunnels under mountains or confined places. Review will be up tomorrow.

Currently reading-

Flying Solo by Zoe May

Rachel Watson has it all worked out. By 30, she’s ticked off most of the goals on her Life List. She’s a home owner, a partner at her law firm, she has a gorgeous boyfriend, lots of hobbies and loads of good friends. The only thing that’s missing is a ring on her finger.

According to her Life List, Rachel should be getting hitched around now, so when her boyfriend, Paul, plans a romantic date, Rachel’s pretty confident he’s going to propose. Except Paul has other ideas. He’s jetting off to India to find himself.

Distraught, Rachel doesn’t know what to do. Not one to easily admit defeat, she embarks on a mission to win him back.

Flying solo to India is definitely not part of Rachel’s plans, but could her trip teach her unexpected lessons about love, life and herself? Could she realise that perhaps her Life List wasn’t exactly what she wanted, after all?

I read 25% of the book and so far it’s interesting. I can’t wait to see Rachel’s experience on her trip to India.

Next I’ll be reading-

What You Wish For by Katherine Center

From Katherine Center, the New York Times bestselling author of How to Walk Away comes a stunning new novel full of heart and hope.

Samantha Casey loves everything about her job as an elementary school librarian on the sunny, historic island of Galveston, Texas—the goofy kids, the stately Victorian building, the butterfly garden. But when the school suddenly loses its beloved principal, it turns out his replacement will be none other than Duncan Carpenter—a former, unrequited crush of Sam’s from many years before.

When Duncan shows up as her new boss, though, he’s nothing like the sweet teacher she once swooned over. He’s become stiff, and humorless, and obsessed with school safety. Now, with Duncan determined to destroy everything Sam loves about her school in the name of security—and turn it into nothing short of a prison—Sam has to stand up for everyone she cares about before the school that’s become her home is gone for good.

This will be my second book by Katherine Center. I expect it as emotional and inspiring as How To Walk Away.


I hope you enjoyed this post! Let me know in comments what you read last, what you are planning to read next, and if you would like to read haul post or not.

Happy Reading!

Weekly Wrap-Up (29/6/’20) #WEEKINREADING #WeeklyWrapup

Hello Readers! I hope you all had great week. I thought I can’t read more than 80 books this year but I’m 15 books ahead of goal so I’m changing Goodreads challenge goal to 100. Last week was exhausting. My daughter slept at 3:00 am four days in a row. One day she slept at 1 and woke up at 3 am and didn’t sleep until 8 in morning. 😪 There was no WiFi for 2 days, no electricity for 1 day, it was frustrating to use slow mobile data to write post and for other things. Anyway I manage to read 2 books and 1 short story.

What I read last week-

Episodic Sleep Disorders by E.L. Haines

It was interesting story, a bit unusual and confusing at some points but suspenseful mystery and I enjoyed blend of myths and science along with mystery. Here is my Review.

Say Yes Summer by Lindsey Roth Culli

This was cute and fluffy, coming of age YA contemporary. I flew through this book,finished it within a day and loved characters and message in the book. Review will be up tomorrow.

Girl, Serpent, Thorn by Melissa Bashardoust

This was fantastic. I have heard world building was great in this and I could see why. I loved this story inspired from Persian Mythology filled with mysterious and interesting characters, demons, legends, twist and turn. Review will be up later this week.

Currently reading-

Cometh the Hour (The Clifton Chronicles #6) by Jeffrey Archer

Cometh the Hour (The Clifton Chronicles, #6)

I put this aside for more than 2 weeks. Now I’m picking this again and will read those last 200 pages before June end.

Next I’ll be reading-

Dark Waters (Monica Kennedy #2) by G.R. Halliday

The haunting new novel from G. R. Halliday, author of FROM THE SHADOWS, shortlisted for THE MCILVANNEY DEBUT PRIZE

THREE MISTAKES. TWO MURDERS. ONE MORE VICTIM TO GO . . .

Annabelle loves to drive. It helps her escape her world, her past. Speeding on a mountain road in the Scottish Highlands, she sees a little girl step out in front of her. She swerves to avoid her. The next thing Annabelle remembers is waking up in a dark, damp room. A voice from the corner of the room says ‘The Doctor will see you now’.

Scott is camping in the woodlands in the Scottish Highlands – but in the middle of the night, he hears something outside his tent. When he goes out to have a look, a little girl is standing among the trees, staring right at him. Scott is never seen again.

When a dismembered body is discovered, DI Monica Kennedy gets called to the scene immediately. After six months away from the Serious Crimes team, they need her back on board.

As Monica searches for the murderer, another body is found. Monica knows the signs . . . She’s on the hunt for a serial killer.

Perfect for fans of James Oswald, Ann Cleeves and Val McDermid.

I can’t wait to see DI Monica again and how she is going to catch this new serial killer. This is tour book,my stop is on 7th next month.

Flying Solo by Zoe May

Rachel Watson has it all worked out. By 30, she’s ticked off most of the goals on her Life List. She’s a home owner, a partner at her law firm, she has a gorgeous boyfriend, lots of hobbies and loads of good friends. The only thing that’s missing is a ring on her finger.

Flying solo to India is definitely not part of Rachel’s plans, but could her trip teach her unexpected lessons about love, life and herself? Could she realise that perhaps her Life List wasn’t exactly what she wanted, after all?

This will be my third book by Zoe May and I can tell it is going to be fun. Another tour book, my stop is on 10th next month.


I hope you enjoyed this post. Let me know in comments if you have read any of these book and what are you reading this month.

WEEKLY WRAP-UP (25/5/’20) #WEEKINREADING #WeeklyWrapup #BooksTeacupnReviews

Hello Readers! I hope you all are well and had great week. Last week had been tiring because of my daughter’s sleeping schedule that keep changing every day and when she sleeps early, I can’t sleep. I’m up till 4 a.m. everyday! Am I turning insomniac? I still managed to read I read 3 books. I received 3 NetGalley books and with that now I have total 17 books with 84% ratio. I hope to read as many as I can in June.

What I read Last week-

Mightier Than the Sword (The Clifton Chronicles #5) by Jeffrey Archer

This was great. I enjoyed it. There was so much going on. At first I was tired of seeing the same enemies- Fisher and Virginia in this book as well and I’m still going to see Virginia in 6th and last book of this series but there were new characters and new enemies as well and when I came over that feeling I I enjoyed every pages in this book. Another cliffhanger that made me start next book as soon as I finished this. Review will be up this week.

As Much As I Ever Could by Brandy Woods Snow

This was great contemporary about getting over loss and grief and learning to live life and love again. I loved characters and setting in this book and it was perfect beach read. Review will be up tomorrow.

Just Me by Deidre Huesmann , Roxas James, Kate Larkindale , Medeia Sharif

I enjoyed all four YA LGBTQ stories. All of them made me smile except last one that brought tears in my eyes. loved all characters and theme of the stories. It was quick read. Review will be up this week.

Currently Reading-

I haven’t start anything yet. I read first few chapters of 6th book in Clifton chronicle so I will read it simultaneously with next book.

Cometh the Hour (The Clifton Chronicles #6) by Jeffrey Archer

Cometh the Hour opens with the reading of a suicide note, which has devastating consequences for Harry and Emma Clifton, Giles Barrington and Lady Virginia.

Giles must decide if he should withdraw from politics and try to rescue Karin, the woman he loves, from behind the Iron Curtain. But is Karin truly in love with him, or is she a spy?

Lady Virginia is facing bankruptcy, and can see no way out of her financial problems, until she is introduced to the hapless Cyrus T. Grant III from Baton Rouge, Louisiana, who’s in England to see his horse run at Royal Ascot.

Sebastian Clifton is now the Chief Executive of Farthings Bank and a workaholic, whose personal life is thrown into disarray when he falls for Priya, a beautiful Indian girl. But her parents have already chosen the man she is going to marry. Meanwhile, Sebastian’s rivals Adrian Sloane and Desmond Mellor are still plotting to bring him and his chairman Hakim Bishara down, so they can take over Farthings.

Harry Clifton remains determined to get Anatoly Babakov released from a gulag in Siberia, following the international success of his acclaimed book, Uncle Joe. But then something unexpected happens that none of them could have anticipated.

Cometh the Hour is the penultimate book in the Clifton Chronicles and, like the five previous novels – which were all New York Times bestsellers – showcases Jeffrey Archer’s extraordinary storytelling with his trademark twists.

Next this week-

WEEKLY WRAP-UP (18/5/’20) #WEEKINREADING #WeeklyWrapup #BooksTeacupnReviews

Hello readers! Last week has been good in reading but I wasn’t feeling best so I took a day or two break with blog in weekends. Here is what read last week and what I’m planning to read this week-

What I read Last week-

Shadowed By Despair (Laith #3) by Candace Robinson

This was great closer of trilogy. I would miss this characters. World and character development was best part and as usual Tavarra was my favorite character. This was easy 5 star read. My review will be up tomorrow.

All the Pretty Things by Emily Arsenault

I finished this in weekend. It was easy to guess who was lying or hiding things early and it was bit slow. It felt like was dragging a bit in middle but I liked overall theme and how character came to terms with truth. I’m not sure about rating yet.

Currently reading-

Mightier Than the Sword (The Clifton Chronicles #5) by Jeffrey Archer

A bomb goes off, but how many passengers on the MV Buckingham have lost their lives? You will find out only if you read the opening chapter of Mightier than the Sword.

When Harry arrives in New York, his publisher Harold Guinzberg tells him he has been elected as the next president of English PEN, which will give him the opportunity to launch a campaign for the release of a fellow author, Anatoly Babakov, who is languishing in a Russian Gulag in Siberia. His crime, writing a book Uncle Joe, which gives an insight into what it was like to work for Josef Stalin. So determined is he to see Babakov released, Harry puts his own life in danger.

Emma Clifton, now Chairman of Barrington Shipping, is having to face the repercussions of the IRA bombing her ship. Some board members feel she should resign while others, including Sebastian Clifton, newly elected to the board, are determined to see she remains as Chairman.

Giles Barrington is now a Minister of the Crown, and looks set for high office, but a trip to East Germany does not end as a diplomatic success, and once again Giles’ political career is thrown off balance by none other than Major Alex Fisher. Fisher decides to stand against Giles at the forthcoming general election. But this time who wins?

Sebastian Clifton asks his girlfriend Samantha to marry him. She happily accepts, but then later changes her mind after she discovers what Seb has been up to behind her back.

The book ends with two court trials: one at the high court in London, a libel case pitting Emma Clifton against Lady Virginia Fenwick; while another, a show trial, takes place in Russia after Harry has been arrested as a spy. Thus continues book five of the Clifton Chronicles, Jeffrey Archer’s most accomplished work to date, with all the trademark twists and turns that have made him one of the most successful authors in the world.

I’m reading this simultaneously. Just few pages along with the book I will start later today.

What I will this week-

As Much As I Ever Could by Brandy Woods Snow

Seventeen-year-old CJ Ainsworth doesn’t drive—not because she can’t, but because she won’t.


She’s been living with the guilt of being the sole survivor of the head-on collision that claimed her mother’s and sister’s lives. It’s the reason she refuses to get behind the wheel. It’s the reason her father has nearly abandoned her. It’s the reason she’s sent to piddle the summer away at her estranged Memaw’s house in Edisto Beach.


All CJ wants to do is isolate herself and make it to the trial at summer’s end, where she’ll testify against the stranger who couldn’t keep his car in its own lane.
She doesn’t expect to fall for a boy, especially not Jett Ramsey, a hotshot racing champion destined for greatness on the NASCAR circuit.


CJ’s resolve crumbles when she loses a bet that puts her squarely in Jett’s
driver’s seat. While he patiently reintroduces her to driving, they confide in each other, and CJ learns she’s not the only one silently suffering through a loss.

As their connection deepens, Jett’s focus on the track is called into question. CJ can’t be the cause of another car crash, but her heart is broken either way. Can CJ learn to put her heart in drive? Or will she throw it in reverse? 

How terrible! I bet I wouldn’t drive if I was in her place. I can’t wait to see how both characters are going to help each other.

What did you read last week? What are you planning to read this week? Have you read any of these books or going to add to TBR?

WEEKLY WRAP-UP (11/5/’20) #WEEKINREADING #WeeklyWrapup #BooksTeacupnReviews

Hello Readers! There wasn’t anything much last week. I felt this week was slow, maybe the book I read was slow that’s why? Anyway so I read 1 book and half way through the book I started on Sunday.

What I read last week-

Pretty Things by Janelle Brown

52625942. sx318 sy475

This was almost 500 pages long and real slow burner mystery thriller. But I loved second half and when I thought about it, I actually enjoyed character building, their past stories and didn’t mind slow pace. And I loved many quote worthy lines in this book. It wasn’t easy to write review on this. It will be up on Wednesday.

Currently reading-

New Waves by Kevin Nguyen

41830689

Set in the New York City tech world, a wry and edgy debut novel about a heist gone wrong, a secret online life exposed, and a young man’s search for true connection….

Lucas and Margo are fed up. Margo is a brilliant programmer tired of being talked over as the company’s sole black employee, and while Lucas is one of many Asians at the firm, he’s nearly invisible as a low-paid customer service rep. Together, they decide to steal their tech start-up’s user database in an attempt at revenge. The heist takes a sudden turn when Margo dies in a car accident, and Lucas is left reeling, wondering what to do with their secret–and wondering whether her death really was an accident. When Lucas hacks into Margo’s computer looking for answers, he is drawn into her secret online life and realizes just how little he knew about his best friend.

With a fresh voice, biting humor, and piercing observations about human nature, Kevin Nguyen brings an insider’s knowledge of the tech industry to this imaginative novel. A pitch-perfect exploration of race and start-up culture, secrecy and surveillance, social media and friendship, New Waves asks: How well do we really know each other? And how do we form true intimacy and connection in a tech-obsessed world? 

I’m at 45% of this book. I don’t if I like characters or not but writing style is different. It feels like I’m reading series of articles and all of them were put in one book. That online instant messaging in 2009 was shown amazingly. I’m still not seeing who killed Margo.

Next this week-

Shadowed By Despair (Laith #3) by Candace Robinson

Perin expected eternal darkness after his death, yet the land of Laith has other plans for him. Snapped awake with a desperate hunger for flesh, he fights the urge to feed, knowing that once he gives in to temptation, there is no turning back.

Tavarra’s deepest desire was always to be human. When she received her one true wish, the journey had already claimed those she cared about. Alone, she fights through each day, forgetting how to truly live.

To strip away his new curse, Perin needs to retrieve an enchanted liquid and bring it back to the Stone of Desire. Despite his unpredictability, and him being the monster this time, Tavarra chooses to help. Tied by fate and loneliness, they must cross the sea into a deadly part of Laith and find the solution before Perin’s hunger overtakes him.

I enjoyed previous two books in this series. This sounds interesting and that synopsis is big surprise. I thought Perin was dead! I can’t wait to see what happened to him and how Tavarra is going to help him.

This is short book so If I still have time I will read one more book. probably this-

All the Pretty Things by Emily Arsenault

For fans of Sadie and The Cheerleaders comes an all new thriller about a boy who turns up dead under suspicious circumstances and the one girl who may be the key to solving the mystery of his untimely death.

For Ivy, summer means roller-coaster season, spinning cotton candy at the Fabuland amusement park, and hanging out with her best friend, Morgan. But this summer is different.

One morning, Morgan finds a dead body. It’s their former classmate and coworker Ethan. To make matters worse, Morgan is taken to a hospital psych ward only days later, and she’s not saying much–not even to Ivy.

The police claim that Ethan simply took a bad fall, but Ivy isn’t convinced and realizes it’s up to her to get answers. What she finds is unsettling–it’s clear that some people aren’t being honest about Ethan’s last night at Fabuland. Including Morgan. And the more secrets Ivy uncovers, the closer she gets to unraveling dark truths that will change her life forever.

I read many dark books this month. I sure need light book after this.

What did you read last week? What are you planning to read this week? Have you read any of these books or going to add to TBR?

Happy Reading
