Morning all and happy Sunday…hope everyone is having a good weekend and has had a good week. Mine wasn’t too bad, busy with work but there were some fun things in their too, including a day off on Friday where I did absolutely nothing but chill and read, finishing a whole book (The Escape by C. L. Taylor). This was followed by dinner with friends…not the most exciting venue as the kids picked McDonalds but we did manage to stay there for two hours!
Yesterday, my daughter decided to hold a birthday party for our cat, who is now a year old. She invited the grandparents, made a cake out of tuna, a playlist for a party…slightly over the top maybe but it was fun and I think the car involved it for the time it took him to eat his tuna before going outside again. And today, we are attempting to make bath bombs, which I’ve been told are easy but you never know…wish me luck!
Back in the world of blogging, I didn’t have a bad week, though missed my target of five posts. I did manage four, though, so not too shabby for me. It included two reviews…
The Dead Room by Chris Mooney, book three in a series involving a Boston forensic investigator who also seems to be quite handy with a gun and has a habit for getting herself into danger. A new author and series for me, I can see myself reading more.
The Legacy by Yrsa Sigurdardottir, who has become one of my favourite authors in the past year with her slightly spooky version of Nordic noir. This was another great read, nice and dark and gritty – just how I like them!
…introduced my latest read, Tuesday Intro: The Stranger by Saskia Sarginson, which is now finished and with a review to follow (fingers crossed to getting it written today). I don’t think I am giving anything away by saying I really enjoyed it.
…talked about my belated realisation that I have a lot of ebooks unread (including The Dead Room, which I had owned since 2012) and my determination to finally read some of them. I picked the three oldest and you can see what they are here. I’m sure I’m not the only one who has books sitting their gathering dust (digitally speaking or otherwise). What is the book that has been sat on your shelves longest?
And that’s it for me. How has your week been, 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?
