Weekly Review (4 September - 10 September)

I've decided to try out posting Weekly Reviews, summarizing the posts I've published over the week, as well as the books I'm currently reading, books I've finished over the week, some upcoming reviews, and any comments I'd like to include about the past week. The weekly review feature was inspired by Small Review and Butterfly Feet Walking on Life.

In case you've missed anything, here's what I posted from Sunday, September 4th through Saturday, September 10th.


None this week!



Books Completed

Amulet: The Stonekeeper, by Kazu Kibuishi
Amulet: The Stonekeeper's Curse, by Kazu Kibuishi
Amulet: The Cloud Searchers, by Kazu Kibuishi
Amulet: The Last Council, by Kazu Kibuishi

Rereading the Amulet books was fun, but all too short. The newest volume is great! Hopefully I'll post a review of them all, but it's not top priority, since I posted a review of the first three books in February. Click to link to go to my review of the first three Amulet books.   

The Iron Queen, by Julie Kagawa
Zombies Vs. Unicorns, edited by Holly Black and Justine Larbalestier

Reviews to come for both of these. The Iron Queen was not as phenomenal as I'd led myself to believe it would be, but I really liked it, and it was definitely a step up from the previous books. Zombies Vs. Unicorns was not at all what I'd expected, and I wasn't enjoying it very much at first, so I put it away for about three weeks. When I reopened it, now knowing what I was in for, I liked it a lot more. 

Currently Reading


Corsets and Clockwork: 13 Steampunk Romances, edited by Trisha Telep
Peter Pan in Scarlet, by Geraldine McCaughrean

I've only read the first two stories in Corsets & Clockwork, but it's been great so far. Peter Pan in Scarlet is a reread for FOOF.

General Updates

I didn't post any reviews this past week because things were crazy with the start of school, and I didn't have any energy to write a review. But they're all coming. I want to post at least three reviews this coming week, and possibly host a guest post. The book-buying ban is still going well; I haven't given in yet. I've still got nine FOOF books left before I end my ban. I'm alternating between FOOF and new reads, and so far I seem to be getting through them at a pretty good pace.

Next week I have scheduled a review for Rapunzel's Revenge and Calamity Jack, two books I read for FOOF, and I'm hosting a giveaway for Enna Isilee's Birthday Bash on Wednesday! Make sure to come back on Wednesday to enter.

Aw, I'm sorry The Iron Queen didn't live up to your expectations, but I'm glad you at least liked it :) Looking forward to your review!

This is such a great idea! I love the formatting for it and being able to see how much you can do in one week.

Small - I liked it a lot, but I had hyped it up so much for myself that I was inevitably hoping it would be better than it was. If I took away any pre-read anticipation, it was overall very good.

Ray - Thanks! I got the idea from Small. :D
