What I’m Reading: July 6th to July 12th

So last week wasn’t so great for me reading wise and this week I need to think carefully about how much time I’ll actually have for reading. So, with that in mind, here’s what I’m hoping to read this week.


Before They Are Hanged (The First Law, #2)

I read the first of this trilogy ages ago. My boyfriend introduced me to Joe Abercrombie’s books with The Blade Itself and I was hooked instantly. I loved that book so much. It had rich world building and characters with a lot of depth and complexities. I was lost in the world. I don’t know why it took me so long to get to the second in the trilogy really, I wanted to pick it up as soon as I’d finished the first one but didn’t. I’m glad I’m getting to it now though!

Currently not started.


I remember seeing the early drafts of this cover on Twitter ages ago and thinking that it looked like an awesome book and then for some reason I never got around to following up on that thought. James Dawson is an author I greatly admire, but I’ve never actually read any of his work yet. I do love a scary book though, so I’m glad to read this one of his first.

Now this one is interesting. I had seen this one in a couple of book haul videos and occasionally mentioned online, but I didn’t know much about it – still don’t. I picked this one up on a whim purely because I’d seen people talking about it and I’m curious to see what it’s all about.

The next book I want to read this week is my only non-YALC related book. I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for a review and I’m quite eager to dive into it. It’s called INK and it’s by Glenn Benest and Dale Pitman. It’s about a graphic novelist who has hidden himself away after a violent encounter with a female fan. From what I can gather it’s got some sinister aspects to it that revolve around a mysterious bottle of ink that arrives on his doorstep. I can’t wait to jump into it.

Currently not started.


Finally, I want to still try and finish this one. I’m a bit disappointed that Teri Terry won’t be at YALC on any of the days I’m going, but I still want to read her books because Mind Games was awesome and it really gave me a taste for her writing. I didn’t get around to this one very much last week, but I’m hoping I’ll have more time this week.

Currently on page 14/439.

So as well as trying to read all those books this week, I’m also going to try and catch up on my reviews a bit. I didn’t get much done last week so I have quite a bit to do this week – too many to write up out just now. Hopefully things will go as well as they did in my first week so I can get back on track again!
