Morning all and welcome to another Sunday and September, with the start of school and cooler days. I’d say I’m going to miss summer but it doesn’t feel like we’ve really had one here. Thankfully we haven’t had the rain and flooding of recent years but the sun just doesn’t seem to have shone for long enough or hot enough. Hey ho!
With the very British moan about the weather out of the way, I will now make a very British apology for not having gotten to visiting people’s blogs or replying to comments from the last few days…because I have been on holiday. I hope to catch up this week with everything.
Unlike my last holiday, this was a staycation with my in-laws visiting. We had a great time visiting some of our favourite places like York Minster and Richmond Castle. We also ate too much (mainly in the way of cake) and I am determined to be good this week and start the much planned for plan to get my weight under control. I also read too little, only finishing one book which is due for review tomorrow – Close to Home by Robert Dugoni – and posted only three times…
The Thirst by Jo Nesbo was my only review. I thought this was a great book, the 11th in the Harry Hole series, with Harry and Nesbo back on form after a few recent outings. This was a clever, if slightly gory, plot with lots of twists, turns and red herrings. Plus, there is the dark grittiness you get in Scandinavian crime writing.
Follow You Home by Mark Edwards was supposed to be my next read. I got through about 50 pages! Not because it isn’t good but just because time was against me. I hope to get back to it today.
And, finally, I recapped my August reads, which were pretty good if I do say so myself – not one dodgy book amongst the, and that rarely happens. My book of the month was a difficult one but I finally settled on Nothing Stays Buried by P J Tracy.
And that’s it for me this week. How about you – what have you been up to?
