Morning everyone – happy Sunday. Hope you are having a good day and have had a good week. Mine has been the usual mix of work and work. Actually that isn’t true this week because my crazy travel schedule ended Tuesday and I felt back to normal by Friday. It was lovely to not be waking up before the birds or in a hotel room rather than my own bed.
Friday was also my daughters annual class assembly, which she’s been practising for for weeks and was uber excited about. She did really well, remembered her lines, sang and danced…and then promptly burst into tears when it was all over (as did half the class!). I don’t think she’ll be asking to go on the stage again for a while.
Blog wise, I have been participating in the Spring into Horror read-a-thon this week and have come across some new blogs as a result, one of the best things about read-a-thons. I also started using Facebook much more as a way to take part, not something I normally do (I think I have a Facebook phobia and rarely use it); it was fun.
I only read one horror book during the week – Carrie by Stephen King, which I really enjoyed – but I also posted my review of the gothic horror Mr. Splitfoot by Samantha Hunt, which I didn’t enjoy much at all. The last book I reviewed was Missing, Presumed by Susie Steiner which was a really good piece of crime writing with great character development…not quite what I expected but in a good way. I also wrote about how many books I read each month as part of the book blogger hop.
Book wise, I didn’t pick up any – not even a trip to the library – which feels odd but also quit nice…I mentioned the other week I felt the number of books I have to read is feel a bit overwhelming and that hasn’t changed. It was a conscious decision to not pick up any books for a few weeks at least till I feel less swamped. How about you, have you picked up any good books this week? What have you read?
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.
