Morning all and welcome to another Sunday. I hope you’ve had a good week / weekend. My week was a bit same old same old with work (I really should by shares in Virgin I spend so much time on their trains!) but also a bit shorter than usual as I had Friday off and got to spend the night with some really good friends. It was just what I needed to recharge my batteries and a reminder I should do those type of things more often.
I also experienced one of those it could only happen to me occasions where the sink in my hotel room started to basically gush water from the overflow pipe and flooded my hotel room. It’s something that isn’t easy to describe and was rather bizzare to see. Thankfully it happened before I went out and they did change my room but the next morning when I was leaving (early because a fire alarm had woken me up at 6 – I know!) the whole of the corridor was also flooded. A story to tell the grandkids.
Anyhow’s back to blog related things – here’s what I posted last week…
On Monday, I reviewed Tarot Court Cards for Beginners by Leeza Robertson, which I thought was a great introductory book into the subject for those wanting to learn to read cards. This wasn’t my normal read (no one was murdered for a start) but it’s something I’m interested in and have been trying to learn on and off for years so it’s a welcome addition to my bookcase.
On Tuesday, I introduced my latest read Tuesday intro: Dead Calm by Inge Lohnig, which I’m about half way through (it’s long!) and am so far enjoying, even though it’s darker than I maybe thought it would be. It’s only my second foray into German fiction and seems to be working for me.
On Thursday, I reviewed New Boy by Tracy Chevalier , a modern retelling of Othello which I thought was excellent. Set in 1970’s Washington DC and the school playground, this one was an accessible read and could easily be read even if you don’t know the play.
On Friday, I wrote about whether I give authors a second chance if I haven’t liked a previous book as part of the book blogger hop.
And that’s it for me. A good, bizarrely exciting, week all things considered. How was yours, 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?
