Morning all and happy Sunday. I hope you are having a good weekend. Ours has been busy as we prepare for our upcoming holidays. I have been panic buying shorts and t-shirts after deciding nothing I own suits me or fits me or is just quite right for our holiday. Then there are all those lovely travel size products that making packing easier but in reality are never enough of a two week holiday…I am not sure why I insist on buying them but I do. The only downside of going away is my tomatoes, the first I’ve grown in years are on the verge of turning red so it’s likely my parents will reap the benefits of my green thumbs vs. me!
On other, blog related notes, it was also a good week. I posted every day and read some brilliant books…
On Monday, I reviewed Two Nights by Kathy Reichs, a standalone novel that I am hoping is going to start a new series as the central character – Sunday Night – is brilliant. She is one tough cookie with an interesting back story….I want to know more!
On Tuesday, I introduced my latest read, The Upstairs Room by Kate Murray-Browne which I’ve found a little slow going but finally found my reading groove.
On Wednesday, I joined in my first blog tour for Buried on the Fens by Joy Ellis, which has become one of my favourite series over the last year with a great cast of characters and a setting (the Lincolnshire Fens) that just seems perfect for murder and mystery.
On Thursday, I wrote about Reading red lines and asked if there are themes / subject matters you just won’t read as well as sharing mine.
On Friday, I updated my challenge pages and then looked at where I was half way through the year.
On Saturday, I shared the books I had added to my shelves – not many but I like to think it’s quality over quantity.
And that brings me slap bang up-to-date and up to today. How about you – how was your week, 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?
