Morning all and welcome to another Sunday and another weekly round-up. Whilst this one started off a bit crazy for me (work again – no point in even going there, it just never seems to end) it ended in a very lazy way because, as of Friday, I am now on holiday for a week. It is much needed and, even though we aren’t going anywhere warm, we have lots of fun day trips planned ending with a long weekend away with friends.
Hopefully, I will find some time to do some of the “admin” I need to do on my blog – the nice to do list runs to pages at moment. At the very least I will get some reading done, a good thing as I have a fully loaded kindle at the moment with library books, ARCs, and purchased books. This week I added (clicking on the covers links to goodreads)…
I know I said I was going to stretch myself this month and not read so much crime fiction but at least there is one non-fiction book on there. Have you read any of these – where should I start? I have to say I’m tempted to go for Angela Marsons as I have been wanting to read Evil Games forever and know I’m so far behind in the series.
Reading wise, I did o.k. this week thanks to lots of time on trains. Plus I managed to post each day again (I’m going to have to stop patting myself on the back for this as I’ve managed it every week since Christmas)…
On Monday, I reviewed The Breakdown by B. A. Paris, which I really enjoyed. Here a young woman is murdered on a country road on a stormy night. The only possible witness, another young woman, is scared to tell and scared of life as she becomes convinced the killer is after her – if only she could get someone to believe her.
On Tuesday, I shared my latest read The Accidental Life of Greg Millar by Aimee Alexander which is part of my attempt to not read quite as much crime / mystery this month.
On Wednesday, I reviewed Captive on the Fens by Joy Ellis, the sixth in the Nikki Galena series. Here Nikki (Lincolnshire Detective) is on the hunt for a man who is kidnapping and torturing young women. It’s a tense read with great twists and turns. Plus Nikki is a great character.
On Thursday, I reviewed All These Perfect Strangers by Aoife Clifford, which I really struggled with thanks to multiple timeframes and an unreliable narrator that I just didn’t like.
On Friday, as part of Feature and Follow I wrote about my favourite re-read – there is only one for me, Dracula by Bram Stoker.
And that was it for my week – how was yours – what di you read? what did you do?
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?
