My Week in Reviews: 21st November 2021

So the last time I did a weekly update was at Easter, when I announced I had found my blogging mojo back. I think I might have been a bit premature, though I had definitely re-found my love of reading (which is much more important to me!). Anyway, hello again…I hope everyone is having a lovely weekend!

Mine has been really quiet so far. My husband is in the states for Thanksgiving – he’s finally getting to see his family again for the first time in over two years – so I’m a single mom for a couple of weeks. Timing wise it isn’t ideal as I’m swamped at work and trying to get read for Christmas, but I’m really glad he’s gotten to go – these last few years have made me realise just how important family is.

I have to say, his being away, also gives me more time for reading (I tend to watch less TV when I’m home alone on an evening). I have already made it through one book since he’s been gone (These Toxic Things) and am halfway through my second (Americaland). I’ve also managed to post two reviews, which seems like a nice number a week for me (more than that and I stress myself out!).

On Wednesday, I posted my review of Her Perfect Family by Teresa Driscoll, which was an interesting idea if a little too long. Yesterday, I reviewed On Small Mistake by Dandy Smith. Unfortunately, this wasn’t a ‘hit’ for me – it was too long and I couldn’t connect with the characters. I really struggle when the central characters annoy me, and that’s what happened here. Saying that, I still gave it three stars, so it wasn’t all bad!

What about your week – has it been a bit more interesting than mine? Or have you done better with your reading choices?

  1. Hey, good to hear from you! What does your husband do that he’s out of the country now and then. If that’s too personal of a question you can ignore it, of course. I’m just envious of people who get to travel for work. lol Anyway! Glad he’s getting to see his family and hope you guys have a wonderful Thanksgiving and Christmas!


    • Hi there – he works for himself so he can work from wherever, which is nice. This is just a holiday though (with a bit of work if something pressing comes up). Have a good thanksgiving too (just followed your blog so hoping to get to know you more!)

  2. ” when I announced I had found my blogging mojo back.” haha right? It comes and it goes. 🙂 Glad your husband got to visit family though, and that you’re getting some reading time.

    Her Perfect Family looks interesting even if it wasn’t perfect, I’ll have to check that one out.

    Have an awesome week!
