Hi all and welcome to a slightly later than normal weekly update. We were away this weekend – camping in the rain and away from all WiFi – and I wasn’t organised enough to get my post pre-written and scheduled. So, I hope everyone had a good weekend and Happy Monday!
Last week was a good one for me and the camping, despite the wet and the cold, was actually a lot of fun because we got to spend it with friends we don’t get to see that often since we moved. Work wise, it’s still quiet as I plan my exit so I’m just preparing for my replacement with a big handover list. And new life wise, I just registered as self-employed which was a gulp but in a good way. Now I just need to get some work in!
On the blog, I posted four times. First up was my review of Close to Home by Robert Dugoni, one of my favourite detective series with one of my favourite female detectives (Tracy Crosswhite). Here she is trying to solve a seemingly simple case of hit and run but things get complicated quickly when the Navy get involved.
I also reviewed Follow You Home by Mark Edwards, which I’d been looking forward to reading as it was my first book by the author, who I know other bloggers out there rave about. Unfortunately, this just didn’t hit the spot for me. I got confused by a plot with one too many twists and I couldn’t get away with the characters, meaning I found it harder to care.
Following on from my naming Tracy Crosswhite one of my favourite female detectives I decided to name my top five on Wednesday. They weren’t in any particular order and people’s comments made me realise I should have gone for a top ten as I missed out some really good women on there!
And finally, on Friday, I joined in with Billy at The Ramblings of a Coffee Addicted Writer with his book blogger hop, writing about how I do choose books for their covers. This is something I have written about before so here I just shared some of my latest favourite covers.
And that was it for this week posting wise. Book wise, I managed a trip to the library where I loaned out way to many books (clicking on the covers will take you to goodreads to find out more)
Not sure where I’ll start but they all look good so maybe it doesn’t matter?
What about you – what have you been up to this week, reading and otherwise?
