Time again for my Monday reading check in – linking up with Sheila from Book Journey. You’ll be relieved to know that with my ear infection gone, the week was far more enjoyable and significantly more productive than its predecessors!
What I read
As so often happens, my reading plans went out of the window with the arrival of some new reading fodder. I’d somehow missed the up and coming release of a book by an Australian author, DB Tait. Cold Deception centres around a murder which took place ten years earlier and the fallout when the young woman jailed for the murder is released and returns home.
And I was excited by the arrival of I Was Here. I’ve been coveting the book since reading others’ reviews and requested a copy. I LOVED it and found it nowhere near as upsetting as I expected it to be.
And finally I read another new hard copy arrival, Goodbye Sweetheart by Australian author Marion Halligan… a little like I Was Here in that it’s about the aftermath of someone’s death and the impact on those they’ve left behind.
What I wrote
I also shared a video clip I’d enjoyed and which had resonated when working through an (Unstoppable) online course I won. Check out Fat is not a feeling.
And finally just yesterday I posed some questions about I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here Australia. Typically the questions were mostly logistical, pondering why the celebs hadn’t caught malaria and how they could be in the ‘wilds’ of Africa sans wildlife.
What I did
I made it back to my circuit classes, attending two last week and almost dying both times. I’m not quite sure why they were so hard, but I really struggled. I’m hoping to be able to afford to get to a couple each week and slowly increase my fitness (so I stop feeling like I may collapse or vomit).
I also visited a local dinosaur exhibition as part of a Night At The Museum thingy. I wouldn’t usually go given my lack of kids as I’m not a great appreciator of museums, galleries and similar stuff (so yes, I’m a bad tourist). But, there was a bar and our ticket included a drink! I blogged about it in my local blog (which I’ve revived after almost a year!)
What I plan to read
I eased up on my reading last week as I had four book reviews to do and sadly they’re still requiring my attention. IF I get them down to ‘2’ I’m allowed to start reading again and unsurprisingly I’ll be trying to get to the books I WAS planning to read last week!!!
I’d love to hear how your week’s been or what you’re up to this week.
