Happy Sunday all – hope you are having a good weekend. Ours has been ok, though there has been more time spent shopping than I would like…my daughter has a neon themed birthday party to go to – I didn’t realise quite how hard it would be to find any neon clothing other than dance wear. We managed in the end but it made yesterday a long day! Today we are taking it easier, going swimming this morning followed by a lovely Sunday lunch with my parents. I plan on eating way too much and there might be a few cheeky glasses of wine in there as well!.
Blog wise, I posted two reviews this week. First up was The Ice Twins by S. K. Tremayne, a suspense with a spooky twists and a couple try to figure out which of their identical twins survived a tragic accident. I liked it a lot but loved my second book, Why Did You Lie? by Ysra Sigurdardottir. Set in Iceland, this was a really clever piece of crime fiction with seemingly unconnected people seemingly taking their own life. It was also amazingly well translated. I also wrote about encouraged others to review for the book blogger hop and posted my monthly round-up…so, all in all, a good blogging week.
Reading wise, I finished my Tuesday Intro, Fractured by Catherine McKenzie, and loved it. I’ll be posting a review Monday. I didn’t get to anything else though due to work and more TV watching in my downtime than reading (we tried some new shows including Designated Survivor, which I’m not sure about at all, and Pitch, which might be fun). I’m not sure what I will read this week, possibly the Jodi Picoult from last week as it’s calling to me and I have plenty of time to sit and savour it.
And that’s it for this week other than leaving you with a video that shows there is maybe a reason people don’t wear neon anymore (unless they are seven).
How was your week? What did you do? What did 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.
