It’s been a fairly slow week here on Debbish, with a quiet yet impressive hush falling over the blog on Tuesday and remaining in place until Saturday.
I’m fairly sure my readers have been waiting in some sort of thrall, nervous about making any movement lest I decide never to return. But… never fear, cos I’m back.
What I read
I started the week with a bang, or with a novella – Nick Earls’ Venice – the second in his Wisdom Tree series.
And then leapt over a large TBR pile to read Clare Mackintosh’s I See You. Clare’s I Let You Go was one of my favourite books of last year and offered possibly the twistiest twist I have ever came across.
And finally – after many days of not reading. Or sleeping really… I read CJ Carver’s Spare Me The Truth. Interestingly I wasn’t sure I’d enjoy it but once I started reading I could not put it down.
What I wrote
Very little obviously. But all three of my posts here this week were book-ish:
Working out whodunnit – in which I share my secret and highly technical methodology for guessing whodunnit in fiction and on TV
People Who Knew Me by Kim Hooper – a book about someone who fakes her own death but later comes to regret it
Long Time Lost by Chris Ewan – a thriller I enjoyed about a privatised witness protection organisation.
I also posted my monthly book wrap-up over at Styling You and – as usual – would really appreciate it if you popped over to give it some comment love…
What I did
I wasn’t well so was mostly AWOL. I had headaches and my sleeplessness caught up with me. It was – quite frankly – pretty ugly. So naturally I escaped to my mother’s where I spent a solid 13hrs straight in bed.
I finally got my doctor’s letter which will allow me to go to the gym I’ve joined… but my BP was up so I have to do a day-long monitoring thing this week.
I also did some DVD-watching while laying low at my mother’s. (Spoiler alert: LOVED Spotlight; and was a tad underwhelmed by Deadpool.)
As for next week
I received some new books which need to be added into my TBR pile…
I also hope to finally get to the gym for the first time… so wish me luck!
And that’s about it for my book blogging and reading this week. So, what about you….
Did you do any reading last week? What do you have planned for the week?
