It’s been a long time since I’ve written an update post. In fact, it’s been a long time since I’ve done much on my blog at all. For most of last year, I barely picked up a book. Reading felt like a chore.
This year, things started to change. I found myself enjoying reading again, posting book reviews on the blog, and engaging with other book bloggers.
I’m fairly confident that I’ve turned a corner, which makes me happy. And it’s why I’ve decided to join back in with Kimberly, the Caffeinated Book Reviewer on her Sunday Posts.
Not that there is a lot to report this week. It’s been an odd one with the kids going back to school. Home schooling was hard this time round so I should have been thrilled that my daughter went back. Instead, I found myself missing her and the noise. The house was so quiet!
Blog wise, I posted two reviews. The first was a new release and the first in a new series by Carole Wyer. An Eye for an Eye was a highly enjoyable police procedural with an interesting and engaging female detective that I’m looking forward to getting to know more.
The second was a 2019 release, The Family Upstairs by Lisa Jewell. I love Lisa Jewell. I don’t think there’s been a book of hers I haven’t enjoyed. This was no exception. It’s a dark tale of a family torn apart when their mother decides she needs more from life than she already has.
I have a few more reviews to post this week, including Fragile by Sarah Hilary, and I might even start with some non-review posts too (if I can get my brain working on all cylinders). Other than that, I plan on visiting a lot more blogs than I have been. Starting with as many as I can from the Sunday Post. It will be nice to ‘meet’ people again!
Have a good week all!
