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

Hope you guys are all having a good week. Here’s what I’ve been doing since last week…

Now: The Last Days of Jack Sparks ~ Jake Arnopp // Glass Sword ~ Victoria Aveyard

I didn’t mean to start Jack Sparks yet but I finished You Know Me Well quicker than expected and I was stranded on a long bus journey with only my Kindle – you know how it is. Anyway, as much as I wanted to read Glass Sword, I’m a bit hooked on it at the mo, so I’m attempting to reading both.

Then: You Know Me Well~ David Levithan & Nina LaCour

This was really cute. My review will be up a bit nearer to the release date which is June 7th.

Next: ??? 

I’m not sue this time. Hopefully another one from my physical TBR pile.

New on the Shelves

Bought: I haven’t bought any books this week.

From Netgalley: 

The War Against the Assholes ~ Sam Munson

waragainst
Mike Wood is a teenager at a decidedly unprestigious Catholic school in Manhattan, accustomed to solving problems using brawn rather than brains.

One day, his nerdy classmate Hob Callahan persuades him to read a mysterious old book of unknown authorship, The Calendar of Slights. On the face of things, the book is a guide to performing clever card tricks; but in fact, it is a test for recruiting new members to join a secret cell of radical magicians.

Amazingly, Mike passes with flying colours unlocking not only his potential magic powers – but also the door to New York City’s vast and hidden underground network of warlocks, sorcerers and mages.

Here, with Hob as his unlikely guide, Mike’s role as a steadfast soldier begins. For there is a war being waged. A war between rivaling factions of magicians that has spanned the ages. A clandestine war against the establishment: a war against The Assholes.

  

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