Bookish Ramblings: Five things Friday

Weekly wrap up time!

New to my Queue

This beast of a book arrived this week! Coming in at over 800 pages in hardback, The Priory of the Orange Tree by Samantha Shannon is now the largest book on my shelf, honestly I think it’s going to break my hands holding it and there will be no room to hold my wine, but I’m sure I’ll manage. I picked up the Waterstones signed edition which took a bit of effort to get the sticker off I have to say. I’ve also applied for the pre-order poster so I’m hoping that will arrive soon too!

Favourite Book(s) I read this week

Honestly, I’ve only completed one book this week and it was a 3* for me, I don’t think it’s right for me to add it in here just because it’s the only one I’ve finished. However, I started Song of Sorrow by Melinda Salisbury yesterday and I’m already under it’s spell!

When I wasn’t reading

Wow, well it’s been quite the week, I have been organising the change over from Post Apocalyptic Playground to Paperbacks and Pinot. I’ve been beset with doubts all along the way and the blog seemingly doesn’t want to go with the highest view count ever yesterday and an influx of facebook page likes, but I know this is a rarity. So today I have made a start. I have made the change on Instagram and Twitter already, facebook is being problematic, and changing this wordpress site over isn’t a 2 minute job. I think the change over is going to take up most of my time over the next week.

Following on from the above, my last picture on Instagram as Post Apocalyptic Playground featured some of my favourite dystopian reads.

Looking Ahead

The next week will be spent continuing sorting out the blog, I’ve also had a rush of netgalley approvals which has taken my by surprise so I need to factor those into my reading time. The smallest playground dweller has come down with chicken pox too so I’ve got my hands full!
