Covers of books Ren just gotRen: I got an ARC of the Magic City anthology because it has a Scott Lynch story, and I’m slowly making my way through it. Anthology stories are hit and miss, but there are a couple of good ones in there, and the Patricia Briggs story definitely made me want to check out her novels. I also finally started Siege and Storm, since the third book is coming out, but I’m growing very frustrated with Alina and Mal and I’m afraid I’ll end up agreeing with Isa’s less-than-glowing review.

covers of books Isa recently gotIsa: I bought a German edition of The Weed That Strings The Hangman’s Bag by Alan Bradley the other day. It was among a heap of somewhat damaged books that were on sale and the cover just looked so cute! Flavia looks almost like Wednesday Addams on the German covers and I was intrigued by this kid detective, negl. I’ll have to buy the first book though because I dislike reading series out of order and this is the second in the series. ;)

It’s a bit empty this time but there are just so many “old” books on our TBRs, we’re having a hard time focusing on new releases!

One thought on “What’s Up Buttercup • June Edition

  1. Spring Sequel has been a great challenge. I have enjoyed participating. I don’t know if I will get City of Heavenly Fire finished before the challenge ends. It was a great help with my year long series challenges. I don’t blame Isa for not wanting to do the big roundups anymore though.
