I’ve been feeling a little overwhelmed on the reading and reviewing front of late. My books have been piling up and it feels like a very busy time on the literary calendar.
What I read
I had a few book-free nights this past week to catch up on my reviewing but still managed to get through three new novels.
I started the week with The Other Side of the World—a novel I really enjoyed but found myself a little perplexed by the ending.
I finally got to The Dying Season which I think I would have enjoyed more if I’d read previous novels in the series or perhaps had a passion for French food and wine. 😉
And finally I read In My House, by debut author Alex Hourston.
What I wrote
On a non-bookish front, I also wrote about some of the stranger coping skills I resort to in times of need.
What I did
I heard nothing from the emails I sent the previous week, asking about submitting book reviews. I’ve decided I’ll just go ahead and do it… when I pluck up the bravado. I’m also in the midst of doing a piece which I want to pitch to a couple of women’s magazines.
I’m currently spending some time at my mother’s again and am watching season 3 of The Newsroom. (I love love love that series.) We also watched Interstellar, which I thought was supposed to be good. But… well, #meh.
What I’m planning to read
I’ve got A STACK of books on my to-be-read pile which are all coming out in the next week or so. As a result I’m yet to decide what’s next on my reading list…
You’ll have to check back in next week to see what I got up to.
What’s on your agenda for this week? Reading or otherwise?
