Hi all, hope you are well. I am finally (well that is) after nearly two weeks of fighting flu and a wisdom tooth infection- it has not been fun! I have, however, been off work as a result which has been – though I shouldn’t say it probably. Because I haven’t been able to do much but lie on the couch and feel sorry for myself, I have also done quite a bit of reading and also catching up on TV shows that are my not-so-guilty pleasure like Supernatural and Vampire Diaries (yes I am a grown woman but there are vampires, I can’t help myself).
Blog wise, I posted two reviews – You’re Never Weird on the Internet (Almost) by Felicia Day, a memoir of an actress people will probably recognise from shows like Buffy and Supernatural but who is much more famous for developing one of the first web series The Guild. This book made me laugh out loud, which is hard to do. Then I reviewed Smoke by Catherine McKenzie which was another non-standard book for me but one I really enjoyed. With a forest fire as a backdrop, this book death with friendship and love in a way that felt real vs. over-emotional.
I also wrote about choosing WordPress over blogger for the book blogger hop (it’s as simple as I find it a simpler platform) and in an effort to get my blog a bit more sorted created an A-Z list of all the reviews I’ve done since I started. It’s part of a master plan to also list by author, genre and rating…not sure how long it’ll take me but it’s nice to have the goal.
Book wise, I finished Only The Brave by Mel Sherratt (see my Tuesday Intro for an overview) and The Bones of You by Debbie Howells. Both are crime fiction so it’s back to my usual reading fare. I’ll be writing reviews for these this week. After these I’m not sure but it will likely be either The Girls by Emma Cline or American Sniper, which I saw the movie for and am now really interested to read as it wasn’t the story I expected (links to goodreads).
What about you – how was your week, what are you reading?
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.
