Wrap Up | May 2018 – week 1

I wish I could say I was a bit more productive this week then I ended up being. Unfortunately, ended up DNF’ing a book I was reading, and work has been pretty busy this week so I didn’t have the energy to try catching up where I had fallen behind. The way I see it is I still have time to catch up, and this week is already shaping up to be a bit more productive!


Reviews |

This week I read and reviewed 2 books. First up was LIFEL1K3 by Jay Kristoff.


Young Adult Science Fiction. This was a wild ride from start to finish, one that I greatly enjoyed! The book ended with a great deal of promise too and I’m excited to see where the story goes next.

I also read A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J Maas.


New Adult Fantasy Romance. One of the most hyped fantasy romance series around. I enjoyed it, but not quite as much as I’d hoped. Onwards to book 2!

Netgalley |

I just caved yesterday, and requested a whole slew of ARCs on Netgalley. No approvals to speak of as of yet, but next week I might have half a dozen to report. We’ll see!

Here are the photos I released this week on Instagram! Follow me @bookbastion to see the rest of my snaps in real time.

Book Tags|

Book Tag | 20 Questions – I’ve decided I’m going to participate in at least one book tag a week. This week I thought a game of 20 questions to get to know me a bit better was a good idea!

Top 10 Tuesday |

This week’s top 10 Tuesday was so much fun! Books I’d Slay a Lion to Get Early! I’ve been really into researching new release titles lately, so I was pretty well prepared for this one, and discovered some new titles that I am really excited about too!

  1. This month’s gonna be packed for me. I blame myself😁 When I signed up for Netgalley I didn’t expect to get quite so many approved! From now on when I request books I’ll keep an eye on the publish dates so I don’t get a whole slew of books crammed in one month!

    I’m starting on Bearer’s Burden(sci-fi) today, might write a May TBR list…

  2. acotar is a guilty pleasure read. lol. for some reason my brain completely shut off all the things i’m supposed to dislike about including the almost too perfect female lead. lol. i do hope you continue to book 2. i think that’s the best book in the series. 😊

  3. I managed to finish 3 books as of today (since the beginning of this month), but I am being a bit slow at the moment, I need to pick up the pace! I have never read Sarah J. Maas, I might as well give that series a try 🙂

  4. I finished 3 books this week so I am happy as I tend to read less since blogging. Now your week was not so bad! And I wish for you that you get approved for your ARCs. I try to tone it down or I feel too much pressure! Happy Sunday Bentley!

  5. NetGalley gets me every time and now I only occasionally check to see what’s going on or I end up requesting too many! Looks like you had a good week to me! ❤ You're making me want to join Instagram with your beautiful pics! Have a great week, Bentley!


    1. I do the same thing Mischenko! I only go to Netgalley once I’ve read almost everything I’ve already requested. It’s too easy to overwhelm myself. I hope you do join Instagram! If you do, make sure to let me know. 🙂


  6. My month is very hectic!! I’ve taken myself out of the 9-5 hamster wheel and decided to work from home as a freelancer, I’ve just com back to blogging, and I have like a million books to read and review. But I’m hopeful that it’ll be a good month.

      1. Thank you! It is definitely not a get rich scheme and it takes a lot of time building it up. Lots of odd jobs to build clientele but I really feel that it’ll be worth it.
