Hi all and happy Sunday. I hope you are having a good week and a good weekend. Today, the sun is shining so I am happy – it’s been very up and down this summer and I am starting to panic we won’t be getting the weather we need to BBQ again before winter roles around (sorry to sound so depressing!).
Saying that, I doubt we will get to cook out today as we have too much to do. My in-laws are visiting next week and my spare bedroom looks like a bomb has hit it and I daren’t even go into my daughter’s bathroom – which they’ll be sharing – so I will be spending the day tidying Maybe if I get all more chores done there will be a veggie burger and a beer at the end of it?
The week itself has flown by. I had Monday off so it was a short week – always good – and I’m in countdown to leaving work, which means I am doing a lot of getting sorted to handover to the new me vs. starting anything new. I thought I might feel a bit strange as I was the first person to have my job so I built it up from a person specification but I feel a mixture of relief, excitement and fear with my new ventures and no regrets.
I also got some blogging done. Here’s a recap of my posts….
On Monday, I reviewed Emma In The Night by Wendy Walker, which I really enjoyed and thought was clever in that I thought I was reading one story when in fact another was being laid out in front of me.
On Tuesday, I shared my latest read, A Pocketful of Crows by Joanne M. Harris, though I won’t be reviewing it until October-ish. It was a book I couldn’t resist picking up as I love Harris’ other books and this one sounded like a great read.
On Thursday, I reviewed At Wave’s End by Patricia Perry Donovan, which is not my normal type of read but which I enjoyed anyways as it dealt with issues we all face (though possibly in more dramatic way here than in my life) – love and family relationships. Plus it was set by the beach, my favourite place to be so how could I resist?
On Friday, I took place in the book blogger hop, talking about whether I feel disappointed if I go into a person’s home and don’t see books.
Yesterday, I shared the books I’d added to the shelves (yes, all of the above!), which is more than my usual weeks and has made me put myself on a Netgalley ban till the number of review books comes down.
And that is it for me. How about you? What have you been up to, reading or otherwise? Let me know – I’m nosey!
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?
