It’s that time again.
And this… is exactly how I’ve been feeling.
I’ve been sick for almost two weeks and am OVER IT! #justsayin
Okay, whinge out of the way… the highlight of the past week for me was going to hear Brooke Davis speak. I recently reviewed her debut novel, Lost & Found – which is apparently generating much buzz in a number of countries. She was just lovely and – although I’ve written nothing but blog posts for years – almost has me thinking about doing some ‘other’ writing again.
Despite having a visitor, being bed-ridden and feeling sorry for myself I read much of what I’d planned, including Trust in Me and Mean Streak – both of which I’ve now reviewed on my blog. I also posted my review of Lyrebird Hill and wrote a post wondering if I should be insulted by the #LikeAGirl label.
I had some new book arrivals, so didn’t get to Peter Carey or Kate Mosse (with an ‘e’) as planned, but I read Indian Summer, by Marcia Willet which I’ve pondered on (a little) since. It’s published by Random House UK and about an ageing thespian and his circle of friends.
Then I’ll get to The Taxidermist’s Daughter – which has now been published by Hachette.
The Gift of Darkness by VM Giambanco (via Quercus Books) is also on my agenda. And… assuming I’m feeling better, I might finally get to Peter Carey’s (upcoming) new release.
So, there you have it – my weekly reading. Providing my cold / flu is better I also want to start getting a bit healthier in general. And then – of course – I’ll conquer poverty and get to world peace.
Any of these books appeal to you?
What’s on your agenda? Book-wise or in general?
Linking up with Sheila and The Book Journey today.
