Weekly Round Up #24 : In which I read a lot but still haven't caught up... AT ALL

Here's my weekly roundup. I'm linking to The Sunday Post hosted by Kimba @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer and #IMWAYR hosted by Kathryn at the Book Date.


Please leave a link to your blog (if you have one) in your comment or make sure your Disqus profile has your address so that I can visit you back! 

I may be a little more sleep deprived than usual, BUT!!! I managed to complete THREE BOOKS last week! I had read a lot of one the week before, but still! THREE BOOKS! This didn't seem to help my numbers at all though since Goodreads still manages to inform me that I'm six books behind...  

This week will be... Interesting. I'll be travelling with my three year old in tow - by myself... Through two countries and eight timezones.... If you don't hear from me often - that is why!

What I read last week:

Island of Exhiles
Black LotusBlood Orchid

OMG guys! I don't know why I haven't heard SOOOO much more about Island of Exiles. It was fantastic! It totally deserves more hype. If you're even remotely interested check out my review here and add it to your TBR! 

The Black Lotus and Blood Orchid I read as part of a blog tour for YA Bound. Although the editing let it down somewhat it was a compelling story and I'm still toying with my ratings.

What I am currently reading:

Strange the Dreamer

I am excited to sit down and really get into this one. I haven't read a Laini Taylor before and her prose is different to anything that I've been reading lately. I've seen some AMAZING ratings around the blogosphere which both excites and terrifies me! 

Up Next:

The Kingmaker

A review copy and one for the #LetsReadIndie challenge!

New Arrivals:

Again - no requests last week! I'm proud of myself for attempting to catch up on my review stack! I'm also trying to get back to a few backlisted books so here's hoping I manage to do that before my pre-orders come in!!! ;)

And that's my week! How did yours go?
