Morning all and welcome to another Sunday post. I hope you had a good week and weekend. I am not sure where my week went, though I didn’t get up to anything much. I went running, electioneering and did some work on my management qualification and suddenly it was Friday night. Still, I’m not complaining because I also don’t think I moaned once about anything I had to do, which is a nice place to be.
The one thing that definitely happened to me this week is I realised that Christmas is fast approaching and, no matter what I did, that wasn’t going to change. Which means time to get organised and start buying presents. I’ll be doing some of that today in-between shopping for my daughter’s Christmas parties outfit (yes, parties – she has a better social life than I do!). Before I head out to do that though, here’s a round-up of what I did on the blog this week…
On Monday, I posted my review of Tonight You’re Dead by Viveca Sten, which I really enjoyed. It’s the fourth in the Sandhamn series and I loved going back and visiting some of my favourite characters.
On Tuesday, I introduced my latest read – Tuesday Intro: Hide and Seek by M. J. Arlidge – the sixth in the DI Helen Grace series, which I love, and which I am trying to catch-up on for my Cloak and Dagger reading challenge.
On Wednesday, I reviewed Return of the Magi by P. J. Tracy, a short story and a change for an author that usually writes about murder. This was a Christmas tale of a terrible thief (in that he kept getting caught) and the two elderly sisters who gave him a chance to finally redeem himself.
On Friday, I reviewed The Foster Child by Jenny Blackhurst, which didn’t hit the mark for me as much as the (only) other book of hers I’ve read (How I Lost You). It was a good plot, with a slightly supernatural twist, but I just couldn’t get away with the characters.
On Saturday, I shared the books I’d added to my shelves this week – all from NetGalley as my self-imposed ban is over and all, I am hoping, are good based on other reviews I’ve read (fingers crossed!).
And that’s it for me this week. How about you – how was your week, reading and otherwise? Let me know, I’m nosey!
