Weekly update: 9th April, 2017

Weekly updateMorning all and welcome to another Sunday and another weekly update.  I hope you’ve had a good week and a good weekend.  For those in the UK, I hope you are also enjoying this amazing weather.  Hard to believe it’s only April and yet last night we were sat out in the garden until past 9 without the need for thermals…heaven!  Long may it continue.  It meant the weekend was (and will continue to be) spent outside, pottering in the garden yesterday and going to see my husband’s baseball game today.  In between I might do a bit of reading 🙂

Here’s how my blogging week went…

On Monday I posted my review of Fell by Jenn Ashworth, a book that I was in two minds about because it was so beautifully written but the story was confused.  I still can’t decide just how much I liked it.

On Tuesday I introduced my latest read, Driven by James Sallis, the follow up to one of my favourite books (Drive) by one of my favourite authors.  It was a quick, fast-paced and powerful read that I will be reviewing tomorrow hopefully.

On Wednesday I reviewed The Lauras by Sara Taylor which didn’t really do it for me if I’m honest.  Like Fell, it was confusing to read but, unlike Fell, it didn’t have the language to life it up for me.

On Thursday I reviewed What Goes Around by Julie Corbin and finally got to say I really enjoyed a book.  This was a thrilling read about two women who love (or loved) the same man and one’s plan for revenge.  Definitely recommended!

Friday I posted nothing as I was travelling for work and I hadn’t been organised enough to plan ahead.  Still, three reviews is a bit of a record for me so I’m still pleased with how the week went.  How was your week, reading and otherwise?  What books should I be adding to my TBR?

The Sunday Post


  1. Three reviews- nice! And glad to hear the weather is nice. It’s gotten nicer here too after a week of rain. Enjoy, and hope it sticks around!

    What Goes Around does look like an intense thriller.


  2. Well, I’m feeling a little disappointed after reading your description of The Lauras; I’ve been looking forward to that one, so we’ll see. I hope you have a better reading week this week and that the nice weather continues!


  3. I think global warming is certainly in existence. We are in autumn and while we have had a few cold days it is expected to go to 21 today which is warmish for this time of the year. Enjoy your reading this week.


    • Is it bad part of me doesn’t mind when the sun is shining in April (though I probably will when there are torrential downpours in June).


  4. Oh, I’m jealous of the good weather you are having in the UK! We’ve had an unusually cold and wet winter/spring and I’m ready for it to be over!


  5. Three reviews, nice job! And your weather sounds amazing – I can’t wait until we can stay outside a little later. 🙂 Have a great trip!


    • It didn’t last long though…down to two again this week. You can’t win em all I guess and time was definitely against me this week.


  6. Glad to hear is nice in the UK. we have had great weather in the US too. I need to get serious about my backyard work! Thanks for reminding me. Happy gardening and reading this week 🙂
