Morning all and welcome to another Sunday. I hope you’ve been having a good weekend and have had a good week. Mine has been a bit up and down, the down mainly because my cat got quite a nasty cut on his leg this weekend – cue late night trip to the vet and lots of worry. Thankfully, he’s alright though how he’s going to cope with not being able to go out for the next five days I’m not sure – I expect lots of whiny crying. Until then, it was going quite well. I got to spend time with friends and also hit the 3K mark on my journey to 5K so was feeling quite chuffed. If we get enough sunny days I should be hitting 5K by the end of November – yay!
Blog wise, I changed site hosts this week so that’s a bit all over the place. Not all my previous posts transferred over and I have had to change blog theme. I knew I’d have to do that but I am not happy with the one I’ve chosen so I need to keep looking for one that works for me. I figure it will be a bit of a work in progress for a couple of weeks and just got on with reviewing mainly, doing a little bit to get things where I want them each day.
Here’s what I posted:
On Monday, I reviewed The Real Guy Fawkes by Nick Holland, a book that filled in a lot of the blanks and debunked a lot of myths for this pretty significant historical event (well at least significant in the UK). It was pretty timely too with the 5th November coming up.
On Tuesday, I introduced my latest read, a novella that is beautifully written (review to follow) and has the most beautiful cover – The Language of Dying by Sarah Pinborough.
On Wednesday, I shared my list of books read and reviewed in October – or at least some of them as I realised after the fact that a few were missing because of the moving of site hosts. I will update it this week I hope.
On Thursday, I reviewed Queens of Georgian Britain by Catherine Curzon, which was a great introduction to the women who were married to our many King George’s and life in Georgian Britain. It’s whetted my appetite to find out more about the period I know little about.
On Friday, I reviewed The Vanishing Box by Elly Griffiths, which took me back to the 1950s and the world of the theatre with police on the trail of a killer who likes to pose his victims to play out scenes from history. A great read from an author I’ve not read before.
On Saturday, I shared the books I’d added to the shelves this week – breaking my NetGalley ban but for good reasons (I think!).
And that’s it for me this week. How about you – how was your week, reading and 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 Katherine at Book Date for It’s Monday, What Are you Reading? Head over by clicking on their badges below to see what other bloggers have read, written about or just added to their shelves.
