Weekly Update: 8th July 2018

Hi there and Happy Sunday.  Welcome to my first weekly update in what seems like forever, but in reality has been about a month.  Life just seems to keep getting away from me and – if I’m honest – I’ve been in a bit of a book blogging slump.  It’s been happening on and off since the Spring and I’m not sure I’m over it yet.

I thought it was because I felt swamped with review copies but they are all done now and I’m completely caught up so I’m actually reading books I’ve bought again – and it’s still made no difference.  With the school holidays almost upon us, I’ll see if the change of pace makes a difference.  If not, I may just take a break.  Oh the woes of being a book blogger 😉

Anyhow, on with my week and what I wrote / reviewed…

On Monday, I wrote a review of Her Watchful Eye by Julie Corbin, which I really enjoyed because it was full of unreliable characters and twists and turns.

On Tuesday, I introduced my latest read, Do Not Disturb by Claire Douglas, which is due out in August so not long to go for my review.

On Wednesday, I recapped on the books I’d read in June, the majority of which were 4+ star reviews so made me very happy.

On Friday, I reviewed Murder in Slow Motion by Rebecca Muddiman, a book set in / around my home town with great plot twists.

And that’s it for me – a short and sweet post. How was your week, reading and otherwise?

  1. Sorry you are still struggling with your reading slump… I hope you find the summer holidays help pull you out of it. I’ve decided to give myself a Netgalley holiday over the summertime to try and catch up a bit with my ridiculous TBR pile. I dropped you a line regarding White Silence – are you okay if we delay this one for a couple of weeks?

    1. I just feel so blah! I am hoping our read kick starts me as it’s such a new genre but I am fine to delay – I’m sorry it too me so long to reply x

      1. No worries! I’m the LAST person to get remotely grumpy about a tardy reply. Thank you for your understandingx

  2. I found my slump improved when I started mixing up my genres, with some thrillers and some memoirs, along with a few contemporary fiction books. Then when I pick up a thriller, I am lost in it immediately. Here are MY WEEKLY UPDATES

    1. I do think I need to mix it up. I have just had so many books to review on NetGalley. That is now under control so I’ll see how I go. If not, I’m taking the summer off!

Let me know what you're thinking...
