Recent Updates and Currently Reading | May 13

Happy Mother's Day! I hope you all are having a beautiful weekend. I have no activity to report on Turtle Watch 2018™. I'm pretty sure they are snapping turtle eggs, though. I hope the little guys are able to make an appearance soon.

Read Last Week

Odd Man Out by James Newman All Systems Red (The Murderbot Diaries #1) by Martha Wells

Odd Man Out by James Newman - ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Odd Man Out was a great novella. I'm hoping to have a short review out for this one this week.

All Systems Red (The Murderbot Diaries #1) by Martha Wells - ⭐⭐⭐ I also enjoyed reading All Systems Red. Many thanks to Tor for giving this to readers through their ebook club.

Recent Acquisitions

Children of Blood and Bone (Legacy of Orïsha #1) by Tomi Adeyemi Obscura by Joe Hart The Shadow of the Wind (El cementerio de los libros olvidados #1) by Carlos Ruiz Zafón, Lucia Graves (Translator)

Children of Blood and Bone (Legacy of Orïsha #1) by Tomi Adeyemi - I bought this in hardcover several weeks ago, but I'm terrible at keeping track and posting my recent purchases. Confession: I usually just pick 3 or 6 of my new books kind of randomly for my updates. Have you read this? I got caught up in the hype and the beauty of the cover. I'm a little nervous about reading it, though!

Obscura by Joe Hart - There has been a lot of hype for this one, too. I bought the audio this week, and I've already listened to a little bit out of curiosity. I think I'm going to love it.

The Shadow of the Wind (El cementerio de los libros olvidados #1) by Carlos Ruiz Zafón, Lucia Graves (Translator) - I was very excited to find this one at a thrift store this week. So many people have this on their favorites list, and I can't wait to find out why!

So what about you? Let me know what you're reading this week or leave me some links!

This post is being shared as part of Book Date's It's Monday! What Are You Reading? and Caffeinated Book Reviewer's The Sunday Post.

    Thanks for sharing...and for visiting my blog.

  2. Oooo, I'm definitely one of those with Shadow of the Wind on my favorites list! I hope you enjoy it :)

  3. Oh Odd Man Out definitely has me intrigued. I'm anxious to hear your thoughts! I'm also looking forward to reading Obscura as well.

  4. Good luck with the eggs, and I hope you like all your new acquisitions. I have only heard raves about Children of Blood and Bone.

  5. Odd Man Out looks cool! I have Obscura but not tried it yet, hype scares

    Week in Review

  6. Almost every book you have is on my wish list! LOL I'm gathering an order to save on shipping. Scared to push that buy button. LOL

  7. I'm reading Obscura too and so far I love it. I've been meaning to get a copy of Children of Blood and Bone too, I've heard mostly great things about it. I'm dying to see the turtles, I hope you get some photos!

  8. I loved All Systems Red. Seriously Murderbot is like one of my favorite things right now. And I just bought Obscura- sounds creepy and fun. Can't wait to read it!

  9. Never heard of Odd Man Out, but whoa, just based on that cover I kinda want to read it. And to hear that you loved it, hmm. I'm also looking forward to starting Obscura! I've heard such amazing things about it already...

  11. Ooooooh, Obscura! That was one of the books that I featured on a "Can't-Wait Wednesday" post. It sounds awesome!!! Hope you love it. There is definitely a lot of hype for Children of Blood and bone. I'm curious what you think of it. Have a great week!

  12. Oh wow, Obscura sounds awesome. I don't think I've seen a review for it yet but I'm curious. I hope you DO love it.


  13. We get toads in the garden quite often and they like hiding under our big bins. Not as cool as turtles though!

  14. I haven't read any of those but am going to have to look into Odd Man Out now that you've rated it five stars :) I hope you're little turtles get to hatching soon so we can see them!

  15. I've really been wanting to read Children of Blood and Bone and Odd Man Out looks so good! I hope you enjoy your new reads!

  16. Ooo I got Children of Blood of Blood and Bone on audio for review and it is awesome. I have already reviewed if you want to check it out on my blog. I also got All Systems Red as a Tor ebook freebie and then bought it as an audible daily deal but I haven't listened or read yet. Soon my friends reviewed it favorably and there are more coming. It looks like we share some similar tastes in books. I'm excited to see what you think of some of these new ones you have. Enjoy! Anne - Books of My Heart

  17. I'm slightly ashamed to admit to admit I haven't heard of any of these books... :( I should take a look and maybe find something that surprises me. :)
