Wow! Another week gone…and where? I really have no idea. I know quite a lot of time has been spent travelling for work but I feel I must have done something else. Other than reading and watching TV though I’m not sure I did. It’s not completely from lack of trying more from circumstance and bad planning. So I had a class in fiction writing yesterday but had managed to book a hair appointment in for the same time – unfortunately the class had to go as my hair was seriously too long – and then I tried to go to a heritage market, only to find that I had the wrong day! Here’s hoping to a more interesting week this week.
Blogging wise, I posted four times including two review – Blind Side by Jennie Ensor which was a much more complex story than I had expected when I first got sent a copy. It’s a thriller set against the tense backdrop of the 7/7 bombings and cleverly done. The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins which, I am pleased to say, did live up to the hype. It’s a well written and fast paced piece of crime writing with lots of twists and turns. I also wrote about my occasional daydreams of writing fiction for the Book blogger hop: novel ideas.
Unfortunately with so much travelling I didn’t get much blog visiting done or add any other books to my to read list. Probably a good thing as I’m behind on my book reading. Any thing I should have read or posts I’ve missed?
So instead of ending this weeks post with a list of books added to shelves I thought I’d end with a song which has been pretty much on repeat on my long drives this week. It’s a few years old but I find the message one I need to remember. Enjoy and have a good week.
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.
