It had to happen (because it always does) but a week after my hols I am full of cold. Does anyone else find that – the moment you let your guard down, you get sick? It could also have been that I spent two days sat in meeting rooms with people who were too sick, really, to be at work. Lots of sniffling and snuffling. It’s one of my pet peeves – are any of us that important that work won’t go on without us? Do you really need to come in and share your germs? Sorry, I’m feeling grumpy.
On other, more positive notes, the sun is shining today, even if it’s cold and my new kitchen has – finally – been fitted after weeks of living in chaos and eating everything microwaved. It’s the first time in 10 years we’ve had a dishwasher and I couldn’t be more excited (it’s the little things!). I also managed to get two of the three reviews up I’d planned for – good going for me….
The Quality of Silence by Rosamund Lupton was a fun, if far-fetched, thriller about a mom and her daughter racing across the Alaskan wilderness to save their husband/father. I really enjoyed it, even if I did have to suspend belief more than one. I loved Disclaimer by Renee Knight though, which was a clever idea of a secret being told through a novel that kept me turning the pages.
Reading wise, I read Harry’s Last Stand and Hide by Lisa Gardner and started The 39 Steps, all of which have been on my Kindle for ages and I was starting to feel guilty about not having read (links to Goodreads). I should finish that this week but have no idea what I’ll be reading next. What about you? What are you reading? How has your week been?
This week, I’m linking in with Kimba at the Caffeinated Book Reviewer and her Sunday Post and with (a little early) 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.
