That’s a Wrap – weekly wrap-up post March 10th 2018. #BookBloggers #BookBlogger #Blogger #Books #Blog

Add heading

I managed to post every day this week, shocker right?!?! Take that blogging procrastination. It’ll probably be another six months before it happens again but I feel that at least , for this week, I killed it at blogging! ๐Ÿ˜‰

My posts in-case you missed any.

Monday.

A trio of posts! ๐Ÿ™‚

Firstly I posted a Music Monday with the Megadeath song A Tout Le Monde and
included both the original 1994 version and the 2007 version that they
re-recorded and which features Cristina Scabbia (Lacuna Coil) on
vocals.

Secondly, I finally got around to updating my Top Ten Finished Fantasy Trilogies Post. it’s been my most popular blog post (yet) and I had been meaning to add The Grim Company by Luke Scull to the list but, alas, procrastination meant I hadn’t done it yet. Someone commented on the post the other day and I saw a few errors, the pictures weren’t all the same size and there was no header image. It just looked rather meh for my most popular post so I updated it, made the pictures the same size, made the font black, got rid of the errors, added a header and added The Grim Company too.

As I had put some effort in and modified the post I didn’t just update it and instead I rescheduled it so that it could get some love from newer followers to my blog.

What did I do for my blogging anniversary?! Well, I like to be different so I wrote a retirement post! Was it believable? Did you feel the emotion? Or, did you know that I was fucking with you?

TTBG is two today!!! (1)

Secondly, I posted It’s OK to share just the book love a piece of original content where I ramble on. ๐Ÿ™‚

It's Ok to just share the book love

A post snippet:

Our blog is our own little slice of the internet, we post what we want in the way that we choose and we all have our own individual style. My blog definitely isnโ€™t for everyone and that is fine, other peopleโ€™s blogs arenโ€™t all for me and we all have blogs and bloggers that we interact with more and prefer over others.

But, what we all are, at the core irrelevant of our differences is book lovers and book bloggers who blog in the way that suits them and whatever that way is, it is right as it is that bloggerโ€™s own blog! Honestly, no-one should be telling anyone what they can or cannot or should or should not be posting on their blog!

Regardless of whether we do on occasion post negative reviews or not we all blog because we love books and want to share that love!

So my friends, celebrate individuality and creativity on blogs, spread the blogger love, and most importantly be yourself and share the book love!ย ๐Ÿ™‚

Wednesday.

On Wednesday I posted my review for Zero Day the third and final book in The Hatching trilogy by Ezekiel Boone.

A review snippet:

The pacing, however, is relentless throughout and come the second half it more than makes up for the first, the action ramps up, threads come together, the web is woven and the spiders give you the chills as Boone builds towards the climax and conclusion of his story.

Is Zero Day the perfect ending to the trilogy? Simply put, no it isn’t. There could be more spiders, more tension, the climax could be more climactic and Boone could have been a little more bloodthirsty with the fates of some of his characters but, at the end of the day it’s a thrilling read that nicely ties the story together and it’s a good book. For me, I’m willing to excuse those few niggles and minor grievances as I had such a fun time reading both the book and the entire trilogy.

Zero Day is a roller-coaster of a finale and a creepily fitting way to end The Hatching trilogy.

I also appeared on the ‘Behind the Blogger‘ feature on the Compulsive Readers Blog. It’s a far more professional, larger and respected blog than my little blog so of course, I was on my best behaviour with the answers that I gave! ๐Ÿ™‚

Thursday.

On Thursday I posted my release day review for Kin by Snorri Kristjansson.

A review snippet:

The story told by Kristjansson in Kin isn’t an epic tale of Viking pillaging and raiding and is very much a departure from what you would perceive to be the norm when it comes to tales involving Vikings. Different, however, can be refreshing and in the case of Kin, it most certainly is with Kristjansson creating a new style read that is gripping, enjoyable and easily accessible and I, for one, look forward to continuing Helga’s adventures.

In my opinion, Kin will appeal to fans of crime, thrillers, mystery and historical fiction and is well worth a read.

Were you paying attention at the start of the review where I labelled Kin as vime?!? You were! Good! Well, Kin is sublime vime!

Friday.

On Friday I was lucky enough to take part in the Blog Tour for The Bitter Twins (The Winnowing Flame #2) by Jen Williams with an author interview.

Yes, I was allowed to ask someone questions! So, of course, I asked why she thinks that Thundercats is the best 1980’s cartoon when obviously, Transformers is! You got to ask the important things! ๐Ÿ˜‰

Currently Reading: A Time Of Dread (Of Blood and Bone #1) by John Gwynne.

51koSiohO8L._SX323_BO1,204,203,200_

The Ben-Elim, a race of warrior angels, once vanquished a mighty demon horde. Now they rule the Banished lands. But their dominion is brutally enforced and their ancient enemy may not be as crushed as they thought.

In the snowbound north, Drem, a trapper, finds mutilated corpses in the forests – a sign of demonic black magic. In the south, Riv, a young, tempestuous soldier, discovers a deadly rift within the Ben-Elim themselves.

Two individuals with two world-changing secrets. But where will they lead? And what role will Drem and Riv play in the Banished Land’s fate? Difficult choices need to be made. Because in the shadows, demons are gathering, waiting for their time to rise. . .

I’m finally getting around to reading A Time of Dread. Gwynne’s previous work, The Faithful and the Fallen is my all-time favourite fantasy series and as such, I have high hopes for this.ย 

It’s been a while since I read a fantasy book and I’m looking forward to getting lots of it read over the weekend. ๐Ÿ˜‰


What are you all currently reading?
