This Week, Next Week: 29th November, 2015

Hi there – and a belated Happy Sunday. I’m hoping those in the states got to enjoy their long thanksgiving weekend. With my husband being from the states we celebrated Thursday but because we live in the UK there was no day to recover from over eating. It was back to work, which has been really busy for me as I’m changing roles (same company) and trying to do both my new and old jobs…which will be the case through the end of December unfortunately.

Still it’s a challenge and one I probably need to be honest because I’ve been doing the same job for 8 years now.ย When I wasn’t working, I spent a fair bit of time just vegging in front of the tele. I am now hooked on Jessica Jones and we’ve been watching quite a good show on Sky called The Last Panther which I can recommend, not just because it has John Hurt in it who I love.

This did mean, though, that I didn’t get much time for books or blogging. I managed two posts all week, one a Tuesday Intro for a book I’ve only just managed to finish today (The Rest of Us Just Live Here by Parrick Ness) and one review for a book I have to say is more disappointing in hindsight than I thought at the time – Little Girl Gone by Alexandra Burt.

It also meant I didn’t get a chance to add any books to the piles, though this is probably a good thing as the pile might fall over! This week coming, I’m determined to turn off the TV and read some of them. I also plan on posting a review for the Patrick Ness book this week and November 9, which I finished over a week ago now (I’m in danger of forgetting what happened!)

What about you, what are you reading this week?


This week, I’m linking in with Kimba at the Caffeinated Book Reviewer and her Sunday Post and with (a little early) with Katherine at Book Date for It’s Monday, What Are you Reading? Head over to see what other bloggers have read, written about or just added to their shelves.

The Sunday Post


  1. That is cool that you celebrated Thanksgiving even in the UK, though to bad you didn’t have some recoup time from the Turkey brain fog…lol. Sounds like your going to be pretty busy though the rest of the year. Hope you get some time in for a good book. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Happy reading,
    Week in Review


  2. I watched Jessica Jones and like dit, for the most part. what do you think? Glad you got to celebrate Thanksgiving- pretty good excuse to eat (and be thankful too). ๐Ÿ™‚


  3. Oh my god, I’m loving Jessica Jones as well. A friend loaned (lent?) met the first 5 episodes and I watched them all last night one after the other and cannot wait for more!!!

    I really need to get Netflix myself but suspect I need a new TV first! IF I get this job I’m currently applying for my ‘things to buy’ list is getting very long!


  4. I am bingeing on Netflix a lot these days, and when setting up for the show I’m currently watching (The West Wing), I saw Jessica Jones and wondered about it. Since then, I’ve seen other bloggers mention it, too, so I’m adding it to my queue. Thanks for sharing…and for visiting my blog.


  5. I didn’t get any books this week either. I seriously need to catch up on the books I already own and need to read. I hope things go well with your new job title. Sometimes a change is really great. Have a great week!


  6. Great you got to enjoy Thanksgiving in the UK, not so great you had to front up for work the next day. I only did one post all week, the heat here has been draining so I’ve done a fair bit of vegging and catching up on Scandal, The Black List & Downton Abbey. Good luck turning off the TV this week lol


  7. It sounds like work is a little challenging at the moment… No wonder you spent a lot of spare time just chilling in front of shows, I’m guilty of that often times too, instead of getting on with reading. I’m spending far too much time watching House on Netflix instead of reading lately.

    I hope you enjoy any upcoming reads!


  8. After working hard all day sometimes vegieing in front of the TV is what is needed. I guess until end of December it’s going to be a little like that for you, so whatever helps should be your motto!
