Hi all and welcome to my first weekly update of 2017. I hope everyone had a good Christmas and new year and, for me, that this year doesn’t go by quite as quickly as 2016, though I’m not holding put too much hope. This first week of the year was a short one for me as we had a bank holiday on Monday so was a nice way to start back at work. Unfortunately it was also a week of travelling and I was away two days, not my favourite thing but part of my job. Still, with a bit of pre-planning over the holidays I managed to post each day…
On Sunday I joined in with Sheila at book journey and a ton of other bloggers to share my First book of the year, The Silence of the Sea by Yrsa Sigurðardótti which I really enjoyed and will be reviewing this week.
On Monday I reviewed my last read of 2016, Duplicity by Sibel Hodge, which I also really enjoyed and was a great way to finish off the year.
On Tuesday I introduced my next read, which I’ll be reviewing tomorrow, Good Me Bad Me.
On Wednesday my reading luck changed with my review of The Missing by Caroline Eriksson which I didn’t enjoy nearly as much as I thought I would thanks to a confusing story and frustrating characters.
On Thursday my next review felt like much of the same with a book I thought would be right up my street. Unfortunately Two Days Gone by Randall Silvis just couldn’t keep me engaged and, like The Missing, had characters I couldn’t click with.
On Friday I joined in with Feature and Follow to share Most Anticipated Read of 2017, only I couldn’t pick just one so settled on my most looked forward to read of January.
On Saturday I didn’t post anything but did pick up three books (links to goodreads)…
And that’s it for me this week. What about you, has it been a good one, reading and otherwise?
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.
