This Week by Proxy: 01 – 11 February


This Week by ProxyWelcome to This Week by Proxy. Join me as I look back on the past week to see which books I’ve read, the reviews I’ve posted and the goals I’ve completed.


| This Week by Proxy: 01 – 11 February 2018 |

The beginning of February saw my return to blogging – something I have missed for a long time. While I’m still finding my feet once again, I’ve thoroughly enjoyed creating new posts, reading books, both new and old, and catching up on everything I’ve missed in this wonderful blogging community. A huge thank you to all my blogging friends for welcoming me back, continuing to reading this blog and for continuing with my neglected memes in my absence!

The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien

With the start of my There and Back Again season, I decided to give The Hobbit an initial re-read before proceeding chapter by chapter every week for my Chapter + Verse posts. Suffice to say my love for this book only grows with age, and I cannot wait to explore the ins and outs of Middle Earth a little further.

Half the World by Joe Abercrombie

The second book in Abercrombie’s Shattered Sea trilogy lived up to all expectations as an action-packed, exciting read full of the trademark sword swinging, blood letting, comic violence and sticky ends. I cannot wait to continue the series with Half a War in the near future.
