Happy Sunday and welcome to another weekly update where I share a little about what’s happened to me this week and the books I’ve reviewed.
I haven’t posted for a few weeks – firstly there was work, then there was half-term (which was mainly spent painting my daughter’s bedroom vs. reading or blogging)
Thankfully, this week, I managed to get back to both. I’ve finished two books and three reviews – all for books I really enjoyed.
First up was More Than A Woman by Caitlin Moran. How much did I love this book? Sooooo much! I’m a bit of a Moran Fan Girl so possibly not a surprise. There aren’t many books that make me laugh out loud – repeatedly – but she does it every time. And it’s even less likely that a book will make me cry. She managed that too. I know this one won’t be for everyone as it is edgy and rude and sad. But it feels perfect for women like me – 40+ Gen Xer’s who still want to rock doc martins and too much eyeliner.
I followed this up with two solid domestic thrillers – The Undiscovered Deaths of Grace McGill and When They Find Her. Both of them are different from what I expected, with twists in the tale that make you sit up and realise you’ve been very much led astray by the authors. What was most impressive about When They Find Her is that it’s a debut, which I wouldn’t have guessed.
Other than that, there isn’t much to report this week – not sure if that’s a good thing or not? How about you? How was your week, reading and otherwise? Emma x
