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?

Happy Reading

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

Hello Readers! How was your week? I don’t like scorching hot weather. I bet I wouldn’t survive in desert. Temperature raises to 40°C everyday and it’s just April. As for the reading, I finished a book I started previous week. I took 2 days break from reading as it was my husband’s birthday and I upgraded blog so made few changes. I started another book that I will finish by tomorrow evening. And read few hundred pages more from The Priory of the Orange Tree.

What I read last week-

The Memories We Bury by H.A. Leuschel

I enjoyed this psychological fiction. It was great book and I definitely recommend it. Check out my review if you missed it.

Currently Reading-

The Priory of the Orange Tree by Samantha Shannon

40379447. sy475

I read 300 pages more in this book. Now 300 more to finish this book. I loved second half the book more, it’s getting exciting with all pieces revealed and now I’m waiting to see how they fit together.

Verona Comicsby Jennifer Dugan

51901322. sx318 sy475

From the author of Hot Dog Girl comes a fresh and funny queer YA contemporary novel about two teens who fall in love in an indie comic book shop.

Jubilee has it all together. She’s an elite cellist, and when she’s not working in her stepmom’s indie comic shop, she’s prepping for the biggest audition of her life.

Ridley is barely holding it together. His parents own the biggest comic-store chain in the country, and Ridley can’t stop disappointing them—that is, when they’re even paying attention.

They meet one fateful night at a comic convention prom, and the two can’t help falling for each other. Too bad their parents are at each other’s throats every chance they get, making a relationship between them nearly impossible…unless they manage to keep it a secret.

Then again, the feud between their families may be the least of their problems. As Ridley’s anxiety spirals, Jubilee tries to help but finds her focus torn between her fast-approaching audition and their intensifying relationship. What if love can’t conquer all? What if each of them needs more than the other can give?

I got this pre-approved NetGalley widget from publisher. I started it in weekends, have finished 40% of the book and it is so far great. The tone is like Autoboyography. There is so much diversity and so many comics. I can’t wait to see what happens between Ridley and Jubilee.

Let’s discuss!

WEEKLY WRAP-UP #WEEKINREADING (13/4/’20)

Hello Readers! I hope you all are safe at home. Here the cases are increasing and most of the cities are sealed, even small areas and now authorities are not letting anybody out of the area even for grocery shopping. Good thing is Amazon is delivering essential things and for vegetables and milk we have a shop near home. It’s kind of good, helping in controlling spread and there’s so less pollution in the air and the peace is eternal bliss, otherwise there’s constant noise of passing vehicles and blaring horn. As for the reading. I’m relax reading. It feels good to read books without deadlines or pressure.

What I read last week-

The Twin by Natasha Preston

46224742

Okay, this was good in most parts but ending ruined it. There was just one thing, evil twin trying to take over good twin’s life, how and why and if she succeed in it or not. Ending was not satisfactory. It burst my bubble of good wins the battle with evil. And I still can’t shrug the anxiousness this book gave. Review will be up this week. Might be 3.5 stars from me.

The Priory of the Orange Tree by Samantha Shannon

40379447. sy475

A world divided. A queendom without an heir. An ancient enemy awakens.

The House of Berethnet has ruled Inys for a thousand years. Still unwed, Queen Sabran the Ninth must conceive a daughter to protect her realm from destruction – but assassins are getting closer to her door. Ead Duryan is an outsider at court. Though she has risen to the position of lady-in-waiting, she is loyal to a hidden society of mages. Ead keeps a watchful eye on Sabran, secretly protecting her with forbidden magic.

Across the dark sea, Tane has trained to be a dragonrider since she was a child, but is forced to make a choice that could see her life unravel. Meanwhile, the divided East and West refuse to parley, and forces of chaos are rising from their sleep.

I finished 200 pages of this mammoth. Still 600 to read. It’s going to take 2 more weeks if I read this simultaneously.

The Memories We Bury by H.A. Leuschel

51248269. sy475

An emotionally charged and captivating novel about the complexities of female friendship and motherhood.

Lizzie Thomson has landed her first job as a music teacher, and after a whirlwind romance with Markus, the newlywed couple move into a beautiful new home in the outskirts of Edinburgh. Lizzie quickly befriends their neighbour Morag, an elderly, resourceful yet lonely widow, who’s own children rarely visit her. Everything seems perfect in Lizzie’s life until she finds out she is pregnant and her relationship with both Morag and Markus change beyond her control.

Can Lizzie really trust Morag and why is Markus keeping secrets from her?

In ‘The Memories We Bury’ the author explores the dangerous bonds we can create with strangers and how past memories can cast long shadows over the present. 

I’m halfway through this book. I plan to finish this book by tomorrow. So far I know both women- Lizzie and Morag perfectly and I can see what Morag is trying to do. I can’t wait to see what that husband was hiding, what Morag did to her son, and how Lizzie is going to confront him and see through Morag’s intentions.

Let’s discuss!

WEEKLY WRAP-UP #WEEKINREADING (6/4/’20)

Hello Readers! I hope you all are safe and staying at home. I’m getting tired of this lock down mostly because there is no particular routine now. I did enjoy few days sleeping when I wish and waking up late and doing daily work when I feel like but now I’m sick of it. It’s bringing the worst out of my husband. I so wish he is back at his 10 to 7 job. I read 2 books last week and now that I don’t have any deadlines I I’m mood of reading and it’s so much fun.

What I read last week-

Autoboyography by Christina Lauren

28919058. sy475

I loved this book. I’m glad there were few unpredictable moments, it didn’t end where I thought it will, and had more obstacles and self-doubts. It was best romance I read so far. I wish I had paperback rather than reading it online.

Those Who Came Before by J.H. Moncrieff

44175660

This was good horror story. That Wendigo did gave me creep. If you like those horrible, ugly mythical creatures that make you want to puke, and story around that thing, you will love this.

Currently reading-

I’m not reading anything yet but I’ll start this after I’m done writing review of Those Who Came Before.

The Twin by Natasha Preston

49903052. sx318 sy475

In this psychological thriller, Emmy finds out that her twin sister, Iris, is trying to push her out of her own life—and might be responsible for their mother’s death.

After their parents divorced, 10-year-old twins Emmy and Iris were split up—Emmy lived with Dad, Iris with Mom. Now, after a tragic accident takes their mom’s life, the twins are reunited and Iris moves in with Emmy and their dad. Devastated over Mom’s death, Iris spends the first few weeks in almost total silence—the only person she will speak to is Emmy. Iris feels her life is over and she doesn’t know what to do. Emmy promises her twin that she can share her life now. After all, they’re sisters. Twins.

It’s a promise that Iris takes seriously. And before long, Emmy’s friends, her life at school, and her boyfriend, Tyler, fall under Iris’s spell. Slowly, Emmy realizes she’s being pushed out of her own life. But she’s just being paranoid, right? And Mom’s accident was . . . just an accident. Right? It’s not like she—or Dad—or Tyler—are in any danger. . . 

I thought I will read this last weekend but then I was in mood for horror and I was seeing that Those Who Came Before on shelf for long time.

The Priory of the Orange Tree by Samantha Shannon

40275288. sy475

A world divided. A queendom without an heir. An ancient enemy awakens.

The House of Berethnet has ruled Inys for a thousand years. Still unwed, Queen Sabran the Ninth must conceive a daughter to protect her realm from destruction – but assassins are getting closer to her door.

Ead Duryan is an outsider at court. Though she has risen to the position of lady-in-waiting, she is loyal to a hidden society of mages. Ead keeps a watchful eye on Sabran, secretly protecting her with forbidden magic.

Across the dark sea, Tané has trained to be a dragonrider since she was a child, but is forced to make a choice that could see her life unravel.

Meanwhile, the divided East and West refuse to parley, and forces of chaos are rising from their sleep.

I’m finally in mood for this big book but I’m going to read it simultaneously. It will take longer that way but I have no other option. My daughter doesn’t let me sit at one place for more than 15 minutes and I cannot hold this book in one hand and my daughter with other. Plan is when she is having nap in noon/evening, I’ll read this and rest of the time I’ll read other books in my kindle.

Let’s discuss!

WEEKLY WRAP-UP #WEEKINREADING (30/3/’20)

Hello Readers! Hmm so I’m at home not going anywhere and whole India is locked down. My cousin whose marriage I was going to attend is stuck in Delhi so forget about marriage! The way things are going this is for more than just a month. So good thing for me is, I didn’t sign up a tour or accepted any request for next month and for May as well. That means plenty time to read my own book. (I’m looking at The Priory of Orange Tree and Sleeping Beauties). Until last week I had 100% NetGalley ratio. Can you imagine? And now I have 10 books! I requested 3 books but rest were pre-approved from publisher. They all looks so good.

What I read last week-

AVOCADO BLISS BY CANDACE ROBINSON, GERARDO DELGADILLO

This was refreshing and lovely romance. I loved theme of the book and adventure was just amazing. If you haven’t read this yet just get it.

Currently Reading-

I started reading two books simultaneously.

BEYOND THE MOON BY CATHERINE TAYLOR

50715406. sy475

I’m almost halfway through this book. I expected it wouldn’t be light read and it’s a big book so I was prepared for the steady pace. But I have to say so far it’s great and I loved the writing. It’s both poignant and poetic. I’m already curious to see what happens next.

Autoboyography by Christina Lauren

28919058. sy475

Why? Why I didn’t read this before? This so amazing, refreshing and lovely YA, LGBT, romance. I just finished 30% of the book and I’m already in love with character and writing and dialogues and everything I read so far. Now I know why it’s so popular and why everybody love this book.
I’m reading this online on Riveted Teen. So like me if you still haven’t read this book, don’t wait for me to finish this and post review.

Next I will read (Probably)-

The Twin by Natasha Preston

49903052. sx318 sy475

It’s not like she—or Dad—or Tyler—are in any danger. . . 

So this has mixed review. I haven’t read them just scroll through. It sounds interesting so I hope it turns out good for me.
