Another week’s flown by and I’d like to say I’ve achieved amazing things. But that would be a lie. 😉 I am however still here and ready to share the goings-on of the past week.
What I read
I started the week (as planned) with Love May Fail by Matthew Quick. It’s already out here in Australia so my review’s live.
I then stepped WAY out of my comfort zone to read a book featuring a head-banging country-singing mortician who sees dead people. I know I know, same-old, same-old.
Limbo by Amy Andrews features ‘failed’ country singer Joy who pairs up with a private detective to track down a missing baby, on the request of its dead mother. I’ve already reviewed it too and you’ll be shocked to know I liked it despite the paranormalness, sex and romance!
I also read Minette Walters’ (hammer horror) novella The Cellar. I enjoyed a lot of her early work but have struggled with her more recent novels. Sadly this 130 page offering was no different.
What I wrote
I also published some writing goals. I feel like I’m floundering a bit on that front at the moment, so decided I should give myself some direction. Now I just need to follow through. #soon
And finally I wrote something in my local blog (updated only intermittently) about some events being held in the area this past weekend.
What I did
I had a pretty unproductive week for a range of reasons, which (happily) ended well when I attended a local food and wine festival (on Saturday).
I’m also thinking of attending an event this afternoon, listening to some music and just getting out and about. However, my brother (PJ—aka, the prodigal son) is on a flying visit and overnighting so I may feel compelled to have some quality family time with PJ and my mother as I haven’t seen him since Christmas.
What I WILL be reading
I had a few new arrivals this past week including Stephen King’s Finders Keepers. I haven’t read Mr Mercedes but his latest is next on my ‘to be read’ pile.
And finally, I hope to be FAR more productive this week and have a plan which I hope will help me get into a better routine.
And that’s it for this book blogger. What are your plans for the upcoming week?
