Morning all and welcome to another Sunday and another weekly update. I hope you are all having a lovely weekend and a happy mother’s day to everyone out there in the UK.
My day has been very nice so far, with a lie in followed by breakfast in bed (which only happens once a year so I saviour it). Later, my mom will be coming over and we’re doing afternoon tea, which means I’m about to start baking but that’s o.k. because I quite like turning into Mary Berry once in a while, though I have never quite mastered her scones.
It’s the end to a nice weekend that included a trip to the seaside yesterday, making up for a slightly rocky week as I haven’t been feeling too well. Fingers crossed I’m over that now though and will be fine this week.
Blog wise, it was a good week, with five posts including three reviews – a bit of a record for me. Here’s what I posted…
On Monday I reviewed The Stranger by Saskia Sarginson, which I really enjoyed and was a refreshing change in a familiar genre with a recent widow trying to rebuild her life at the same time as she is trying to unpick the secrets and lies of the two men she has started to have feelings for.
On Tuesday I shared the start of my latest read Fell by Jenn Ashworth, which I have to admit I haven’t gotten into enough yet to know how I feel because I forgot to take it with me on my travels this week so ending up picking another book instead. The bit I have read though leaves me with high hopes for a spooky and suspenseful read.
On Wednesday I reviewed The Escape by C. L. Taylor, an author I have wanted to read for a while and whose latest book I really enjoyed. This was a fast-paced read with lots of twists, turns and action. Highly recommended.
On Thursday I reviewed The Woman in Cabin 10 by Ruth Ware, a book I have been putting of reading for fear it wasn’t as good as Ware’s debut and one of my favourite books of last year, In a Dark, Dark, Wood. Thankfully my fears were unfounded. This was a great book that had shades of Christie in it’s cast of potential suspects.
On Friday I joined wrote about handling negative comments on my blog as part of the book blogger hop – thankfully it’s not something I’ve had to really do but I tried to think about what I would do if I did.
So, all in all a good week. It was also a good week book wise. Added to my shelves were (clicking on the covers takes you to good reads) …
Before the Fall is a bit of a wild card as I remember hearing good things but not what when it first came out last year. The other two though I have high hopes for – I haven’t read a bad review for the Roanoke Girls and I love the Erika Foster series. Fingers crossed I am not disappointed with either.
And that’s it for this week. What about you – has it been a good one, reading and otherwise?
