This Week in Books is a feature hosted by Lipsy at Lipsyy Lost and Found that allows bloggers to share:

  • What have you recently finished reading?
  • what they are currently reading
  • What they plan to read next

A similar meme is by Taking on a World of Words.


Yes! I finally started reading nice and read by Julie Walker, which has popped up as my “next read” several times since I bought it. I loved! 🏴‍☠️

Rebels. female pirates.

Caribbean, 1720. Two extraordinary women are on the run: from their past, from the British Navy and the threat of execution, and from the fate that fate has written for them.

Daughter of a plantation owner, runaway wife, pirate: Anne Bonny has forged her own story in a world of men. But when she becomes involved in the capture of a British merchant ship, she is shocked to find another woman among the crew, with a story as offbeat as her own. Dressed as a boy from infancy, Mary Read has been a soldier, a sailor, a widow, but never a woman in charge of her own destiny.

As their thrilling and tumultuous exploits rise to fame, Bonny and Read’s ballad is sung from shore to shore, but when you swim against the tide of history, freedom is a dangerous thing…

An exuberant reimagining of Bonny & Read’s remarkable story: pioneering, boundary-pushing heroines and bullies whose story deserves to be told. Perfect for fans of Ariana, the mercies, Y the familiars.


I am currently reading The moose paradox by Antti Tuomainen ahead of my blog tour stop next week.

Insurance mathematician Henri Koskinen has finally restored order to both his life and YouMeFun, the adventure park he now owns, when a man from the past shows up and turns everything upside down again. More problems arise when a shady trio, with confusing demands, take over the park’s equipment supplier. Why doesn’t Toy of Finland Ltd sell the new Moose Chute to Henri when he needs it as the main attraction of the park?

Meanwhile, Henri’s relationship with artist Laura has reached a breaking point, and in order to survive in this chaotic new world, he must push all calculations to the limit before it’s too late…

Absurdly funny, moving and full of nail-biting suspense, The moose paradox is the second installment of the critically acclaimed, perfect Rabbit Factor Trilogy and things are messier than ever…


For my next reading, I think I might read The daughter of the bone fragment by Andrea Stewart. This is the only book I have left bought before 2022, so it would allow me to clear the holdings list for the year! 🥳

Magic. Revolution. Identity.

The Emperor’s reign has lasted for decades, his mastery of bone fragment magic fueling the animal constructs that maintain law and order. But now his rule is failing and the revolution is spreading across the many islands of the Empire.

Lin is the daughter of the Emperor and spends her days trapped in a palace with closed doors and dark secrets. When her father refuses to acknowledge her as heir to the throne, she vows to prove her worth by mastering the forbidden art of bone fragment magic.

However, that power comes at a great cost, and when the revolution reaches the palace gates, Lin must decide how far she is willing to go to reclaim her birthright and save her people.
