Morning all and welcome to my first February update, another month that has started with rain – when will we get some better weather? For a short month, February is apparently the one that feels like the longest. I think it’s because we are now all desperate for spring to arrive. Fingers crossed it does soon. On other notes, it was another busy week for me with projects to do (but I’m not complaining) but also not as stressful because I didn’t feel as panic-y … I even said no to a job when the timeframes were too tight (it felt good). It did mean I didn’t get as much blog hopping and commenting done as I would like but I did spend some time this weekend catching up and am hopefully about there now.
On the blog, I posted two reviews. First up was The Hoarder by Jess Kidd, who writes beautifully and has created a wonderful world of quirky characters with a supernatural twist. Whilst I didn’t enjoy this as much as her first book (Himself), I would still definitely recommend this one. This was followed up with The Death House by Sarah Pinborough, a young adult dystopian novel that I really enjoyed. It was another book that I thought was beautifully written and wonderfully dark.
These were two of my favourite books of the month, which I shared on Wednesday. They were also books that took me outside my comfort zone, a zone I was firmly back in with the books I added to my shelves this week.
All three of these are ebooks, something I’ve been trying to – if not steer clear of, then at least cut back on. I talked about my plans to alternate ebooks and physical books this week here.
And that’s it for me this week. What about you? What have you been up to, reading and otherwise?
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.
