Just received this notification from Amazon:
I’m so excited to read this! The Bear and The Nightingale was one of my favourite reads of 2017 and I have been counting down the days until I could get my hands on a copy of the second book in the trilogy, The Girl in the Tower.
I was heartbroken to be turned down for a review copy on Netgalley, but pre-ordered the hardback on Amazon…and now it’s on the way!
So, that alone would have been my weekend planned, but there’s more!
Tomorrow I’m going to the book launch for Hero at the Fall by Alwyn Hamilton. I have read and loved the first two books in this trilogy (Rebel of the Sands and Traitor to the Throne) and am beyond excited to finally read the third book (a full week before the publication date!).
I do always find it hard going into the final part of a trilogy because of warring feelings: the need to know what happens next and the desire to still have more of the world to discover. I want to read more about my favourite characters but I just don’t want the books to be over…
The hardest thing is going to be that tomorrow is Thursday, meaning work on Friday. This means I will have to actually go to bed rather than staying up all night to read these two beauties!
