Morning all and welcome to a truly glorious Sunday where the sun is shining and, as a result, I have to say all feels right with the world. Plus, it’s father’s day – an excuse for us to eat, drink and get just a little bit merry, which we’ll be doing when my parents come over later today. It will be a nice end to a rather busy weekend – lots of kid’s activities yesterday plus I very stupidly agreed to make ice-cream for the first time and not using a machine…Mary Berry promised me it was easy (but can you trust her really?). We haven’t tried it yet so hopefully it will be tasty enough to have been worth the effort.
As for the rest of the week, there isn’t much to report other than I worked, worked and worked some more (sound familiar to anyone?). I also got some blogging done. Here’s what I posted…
On Monday, I reviewed My Sister by Michelle Adams, which I liked but didn’t love thanks mainly to not liking the characters. It’s a debut though so I need to be a little generous here because I think with a few tweaks (for me) it could have been pretty good.
On Tuesday, I introduced my latest read, Guiltless by Viveca Sten, the third in the Sandhamm series which I am very much enjoying, even if a lot of people seem to end up dying on an island that boasts a population of just a few hundred!
On Wednesday, I reviewed Cold Kill by P. J. Tracy, a mother and daughter writing team who have created a great world of characters. This one wasn’t my usual read in that there were conspiracy theories and international espionage involved but I enjoyed it nonetheless.
On Thursday, I wrote about my habit of judging books by their covers and how it’s not done too badly for me, even though I know it’s something I shouldn’t do.
On Saturday, I shared the books I’d added to my shelves this week – no surprise there is plenty of crime and mystery!
And that’s it for my week. 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?
