This Week, Next Week in Books: 13th September, 2015

Good morning and welcome to another Sunday, another one which has come round way, way, too quick for my liking. I really love my weekends and they just are never long enough. This one has come at the end of really nice week though so I shouldn’t complain too much I suppose. Lots of sunny days and trips to the park after school. Lovely.

Book wise, I got two reviews posted…

A Mother’s Story by Amanda Prowse, which I wish I’d read rather than listened too because, even though I enjoyed it, I was put off by the narration and Freedom’s Child by Jax Miller which I loved because it was a wild ride of a read and Freedom a different type of character from others I’ve been reading.

Blood Sisters (Katie Maguire, #5) The Prodigal: Valley Park series #1I also finished two books, Blood Sisters by Graham Masterson and The Prodigal by Nicky Black (links to Goodreads) and started a third, Still Waters by Viveca Sten. I should get this finished this week plus The Lady in the Tower by Alison Weir, which I’ve been listening to.  

One thing I didn’t do was add any books to the reading piles. Mind you, this might be a good thing as I’m developing a backlog of books. All in all, then, it feels like it’s been a good reading week. How has yours been? Read any good books?


This week, I’m linking in with Kimba at the Caffeinated Book Reviewer and her Sunday Post. Head over to see what other bloggers have read, written about or just added to their shelves.

The Sunday Post

  1. I actually just read your review of A Mother’s Story today Emma. I don’t have kids and sometimes it’s a sore point for me so I often avoid books which make me wallow.

    I like the look of The Prodigal!

    1. I think these type of books can be difficult subjects to read. I did find the mental health side fascinating but then it links to my work. It definitely isn’t a book for everyone. The Prodigal was good – now just need to get the review written!

  2. This weekend did come up fast, but then we had a short week. Hope your weekend is great and happy reading!

    1. They always seem too…and go too quickly. Hope you have good week too.

  3. I like the sound of A Mother’s Story. I don’t like audio, so I just read e-books or print books. Have a great week, and thanks for visiting my blog.

    1. I have a bit of a mixed relationship with audio. I think I should stick to non fiction listening. You have a good week too x

  4. It does sound like a good reading week! I’ve hit a few books where audio just doesn’t work and it does sound like A Mother’s Story was one of them. It’s hard to tell going in. Great job on not adding any more books! I’m trying but with somewhat mixed results. Have a great week!

    1. I’m patting myself on the back because I never normally do as well. Not adding books is hard – good luck with your attempts x

  5. I must check out Blood Sisters. That’s one of his I haven’t read yet. And I’m trying not to add review books but so many authors I follow are so prolific, I can’t resist when they release a new one. LOL Happy reading:)

    My Sunday Post –

  6. Ah the To Be Read pile. I remember when I didn;t have enough to read. Long ago and in a galaxy far away….

    1. I wish I could remember. It goes up, it goes down but it never goes away!

Let me know what you're thinking...
