Welcome to my weekly post, where I sum-up what I’ve been up to in bookland the past week. 

Happy Wednesday to you all. I just got back from a long weekend in Prague which is so beautiful I didn’t want to leave! I may well do a little post on it at some point. Unfortunately, that does mean that once again I haven’t got much reading done.

Now:  Daughter of Smoke and Bone ~ Laini Taylor // A Million Little Pieces ~ James Frey

I’m enjoying Daughter of Smoke of Bone a lot but I haven’t got through much of it. I’m also still reading A Million Little Pieces in  the few and far between intervals at work

Then:  The Song of Achilles  ~ Madeline Miller

LOVED!!! Review will be up soon. 

Next: ??? 

Probably The Hummingbird’s Cage as it’s my next ARC deadline. 

New on the Shelves

I found a great English bookshop in the backstreets of Prague at the weekend so obviously I had to buy a few mementos…

City of Dark Magic ~ Magnus Flyte

cityofdarkmagic
Once a city of enormous wealth and culture, Prague was home to emperors, alchemists, astronomers, and, as it’s whispered, hell portals. When music student Sarah Weston lands a summer job at Prague Castle cataloging Beethoven’s manuscripts, she has no idea how dangerous her life is about to become. Prague is a threshold, Sarah is warned, and it is steeped in blood.
Soon after Sarah arrives, strange things begin to happen. She learns that her mentor, who was working at the castle, may not have committed suicide after all. Could his cryptic notes be warnings? As Sarah parses his clues about Beethoven’s “Immortal Beloved,” she manages to get arrested, to have tantric sex in a public fountain, and to discover a time-warping drug. She also catches the attention of a four-hundred-year-old dwarf, the handsome Prince Max, and a powerful U.S. senator with secrets she will do anything to hide.

   City of Dark Magic could be called a rom-com paranormal suspense novel—or it could simply be called one of the most entertaining novels of the year.

  So, that’s my week in books, now how about yours?
