I’ve been AWOL again this past week, but I’m hoping this next week sees some changes. I apologise I didn’t get around to as many blogs as usual and you’ll notice my reading and blogging has – again – suffered.
What I read
I started the week with The Sudden Appearance of Hope by Claire North. It actually took me a few nights though it’s not that THAT lengthy.
And then I tackled Lily and the Octopus by Steven Rowley. I’d heard great things about it and it certainly delivered. I’ve started that review and will probably post it Monday.
And finally… I read Arlene Hunt’s Last to Die.
What I wrote
I took me until Thursday to write something, and that was a review of The Sudden Appearance of Hope.
And just yesterday I shared my review of Last to Die.
I also posted over at the Aussie blog, Styling You and as usual I’d love it if you could pop over and show the post some love. I shared my fave reads EVER in a winter-themed post and will return there later this year for an (Oz) summer reading wrap up.
What I did
I had some more travel which always leaves me tired, and my mother had eye surgery so I was also on mother-watching duty. She stayed with me before and after the surgery and now I’m at her place for a few days. She’s fine but can’t drive for 4-5 days so I’m just helping out. As planned I took the opportunity to binge-watch some TV on DVD and got through all 10 episodes of Mr Robot s1 – which is enjoyable and just a bit of a mindf*ck!
Thankfully I’m pretty much (big) commitment free for a couple of weeks AND I don’t have any work travel scheduled so I’m hoping to get stuck into my reading and reviews AND write some non-bookish posts.
What I plan to do
I’ve actually only had one new arrival in the past fortnight, so I think I’m slowly working my way through my to-be-read pile.
I’ve got a few unread books which have been released this month so will try to continue to plough through chronologically, although sometimes one really does need to go with what one’s in the mood for!
And that’s is for me this week. Rather boring I realise, but… I’m having drinkies back at my place with girlfriends again today so am hoping that kicks off a more exciting week!
What’s on your agenda for the next week?
