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.

WEEKLY WRAP-UP (3/5/’20) #WEEKINREADING #WeeklyWrapup #BooksTeacupnReviews

Hello Readers! I hope you all are well and your week was great. My reading week was good. I’m maintaining 2 book a week target. I have May list of 8 book to read. Do you plan your reading every month or read as you please? Other than books I watched Extraction on Netflix. I enjoyed it specially action scenes.

Here is what I read and plan to read next-

What I read last week-

Be Careful What You Wish For (The Clifton Chronicles #4) by Jeffrey Archer

18404285

This was as good as previous books of this series. Major twist, many surprises, a revenge plan and family trying to save their asses was enough to make it exciting read. And another cliffhanger that made me want to include fifth book in this months’ reading list. Review will be up tomorrow.

Breaking Storm (White Wattle Creek #1) by Vikki Holstein

I knew there were secrets and things related to drugs but I didn’t expect to deal with sensitive topics, rape and abuse and more. What I loved was author handled it sensitively. This was great read. I’m still writing review but it will be up on publication day on 6th this week.

Currently reading-

Pretty Things by Janelle Brown

52625942. sx318 sy475

Two wildly different women – one a grifter, the other an heiress – are brought together by the scam of a lifetime in a page-turner from the New York Times bestselling author of Watch Me Disappear.

Nina once bought into the idea that her fancy liberal arts degree would lead to a fulfilling career. When that dream crashed, she turned to stealing from rich kids in L.A. alongside her wily Irish boyfriend, Lachlan. Nina learned from the best: Her mother was the original con artist, hustling to give her daughter a decent childhood despite their wayward life. But when her mom gets sick, Nina puts everything on the line to help her, even if it means running her most audacious, dangerous scam yet.

Vanessa is a privileged young heiress who wanted to make her mark in the world. Instead she becomes an Instagram influencer—traveling the globe, receiving free clothes and products, and posing for pictures in exotic locales. But behind the covetable façade is a life marked by tragedy. After a broken engagement, Vanessa retreats to her family’s sprawling mountain estate, Stonehaven: a mansion of dark secrets not just from Vanessa’s past, but from that of a lost and troubled girl named Nina.

Nina’s, Vanessa’s, and Lachlan’s paths collide here, on the cold shores of Lake Tahoe, where their intertwined lives give way to a winter of aspiration and desire, duplicity and revenge.

This dazzling, twisty, mesmerizing novel showcases acclaimed author Janelle Brown at her best, as two brilliant, damaged women try to survive the greatest game of deceit and destruction they will ever play. 

sounds interesting, right? This is almost 500 pages long! I have seen mixed review for this book.I hope it turns out good for me.

Next This Week-

A heist word in the synopsis was enough for me to want to read it. Can’t wait to see whether it was car accident or something else and what Lucas finds out about Margo.

WEEKLY WRAP-UP (26/4/’20) #WEEKINREADING #WeeklyWrapup #BooksTeacupnReviews

Hello Readers! Last week has been good in reading. I wrote I first ever discussion post and I was happy with it. Now I don’t know what to write next. I have two topics in mind but I haven’t think about it more than just titles. I’m reading more posts now so I can get idea and some inspiration. It’s weird I chose this time to have this change and do something out of box. I got NetGalley blast from publisher yesterday. I got it in the beginning of the month as well and now I have 15 books to read! They sounds so great.

What I read last week-

The Priory of the Orange Tree by Samantha Shannon

40379447. sy475

Finallyyy!! I finished this 830 pages book after 2 weeks 2 days. I love every moment I spent with this book. Every chapter and page was amazing. It lived up to the hype more than I expected. I’m in love with Ead and Sabran and their world. Review will be up tomorrow.

Verona Comics by Jennifer Dugan

51901322. sx318 sy475

I started this a week before and finished half of the book last week. As I said in review, Anxiety disorder and mental health representation was great.

The Lucky Ones by Liz Lawson

51093245. sx318 sy475

This book was so emotional. I swear last 20% of the book made me cry. I loved how author represented trauma, depression, pain and grief of surviving school shooting. I feel for every character in this book and I wish nobody has to go through this ever. No second thought on stars. Review will be up this week.

Currently Reading-

Be Careful What You Wish For (The Clifton Chronicles #4) by Jeffrey Archer

18404285

Bestselling author Jeffrey Archer’s Be Careful What You Wish For opens with Harry Clifton and his wife Emma rushing to hospital to learn the fate of their son Sebastian, who has been involved in a fatal car accident. But who died, Sebastian or his best friend Bruno?

When Ross Buchanan is forced to resign as chairman of the Barrington Shipping Company, Emma Clifton wants to replace him. But Don Pedro Martinez intends to install his puppet, the egregious Major Alex Fisher, in order to destroy the Barrington family firm just as the company plans to build its new luxury liner, the MV Buckingham.

Back in London, Harry and Emma’s adopted daughter wins a scholarship to the Slade Academy of Art where she falls in love with a fellow student, Clive Bingham, who asks her to marry him. Both families are delighted until Priscilla Bingham, Jessica’s future mother-in-law, has a visit from an old friend, Lady Virginia Fenwick, who drops her particular brand of poison into the wedding chalice.

Then, without warning, Cedric Hardcastle, a bluff Yorkshireman who no one has come across before, takes his place on the board of Barringtons. This causes an upheaval that none of them could have anticipated, and will change the lives of every member of the Clifton and Barrington families. Hardcastle’s first decision is who to support to become the next chairman of the board: Emma Clifton or Major Alex Fisher? And with that decision, the story takes yet another twist that will keep you on the edge of your seat.

Be Careful What You Wish For showcases the master storyteller’s talent as never before – when the Clifton and Barrington families march forward into the sixties, in this epic tale of love, revenge, ambition and betrayal.

I didn’t plan to read this but I finished all books I planned to read and I still have time to read one more book before month end. So why not start this series where I left it last year.

Next I might read-

Breaking Storm (White Wattle Creek #1) by Vikki Holstein

Kelsey’s sole purpose in life is to keep four-year-old Pipa safe. Conceived in a violent, drug-induced rampage, Pipa is being hunted by the man responsible. He wants her dead, and no matter how far Kelsey and Pipa run, the brewing storm is never far behind.

Protection lies in Kelsey’s hometown of White Wattle Creek in the form of Ethan, the man who’d always been her safe place. The one she loved. And the one who broke her heart. But she not only has Ethan to face when she returns. The emotional abuse of her past and the truth surrounding Pipa’s existence both rain down on her from the clouds gathering overhead.

When Kelsey finally opens her heart to Ethan, her nightmares tip over into reality, and with Pipa’s future hanging in the balance, Kelsey must find the strength within to fight for their right to happiness … before the storm breaks.

Isn’t that interesting? I must say Vulpine Press publishes interesting titles. This is releasing on 8th May. I will read it by week end and post review on 8th.

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?
