Monday again, so I’m linking with Sheila from Book Journey to share my weekly reading.
I started the week impressively – if I do say so myself – reading two books in two nights. It didn’t interfere with my insomnia, which continued to plod along quite nicely, but it bit into my TV-viewing time. Which was actually okay cos here in Oz we’re still beleaguered by bloody non-stop cricket and tennis.
BRING BACK THE MENTALIST. AND PERSON OF INTEREST. AND CRIMINAL MINDS. (etc)
Oops. I digress – led astray by the need to rant.
Read last week
I started the week by FINALLY picking up The Rosie Project. And I loved it. God only knows why it’s sat on my desk for over a month being ignored as if diseased. #orsomething
I also read The Ice Twins by SK Tremayne which was another enjoyable read.
And then as planned I also read Your Best Year Yet – a short book I mentioned last week and one which will feature in a post in the next day or two.
After having a few nights off as my reading got WAY ahead of my reviewing, I then finished the week with Lisa Gardner’s Crash & Burn.
On the blog last week
I excitedly shared a video clip which I’d become addicted to watching. It promotes women in sport and exercising and I love it.
I posted my reviews of SK Tremayne’s The Ice Twins and Crazy Love You by Lisa Unger. I’d read the latter quite a while ago and mentioned that a few books I’ve read lately took me to where Unger ‘went’ – touching on a more supernatural theme (of which I’m not a fan); but I enjoyed it nonetheless.
I also posted a short and sweet review of The Rosie Project in Goodreads.
And finally I wrote about a February challenge I plan to undertake. And before you go thinking I’m giving up alcohol, walking 10,000 steps a day, planking or working to resolve world hunger, I should mention that I’ve written about wearing makeup. Yep, you read that correctly. #dontask
Reading this week
I’m excited to have Jonathan Kellerman’s latest book, Motive waiting for me (and it’s a real book rather than an ebook!). I’ve read all of Kellerman’s Alex Delaware series and surprised – and exhausted – to discover this is number 30!
I’ve also received Tom Rob Smith’s The Farm – which I didn’t read when it came out last year. Tom Rob Smith’s visiting Australia in February to promote the upcoming film based on his successful book, Child 44. I haven’t read it either but the aging parent / dementia element of The Farm really appeals, given my personal experience with the subject matter.
I’ve got a little queue of books waiting for me in NetGalley but none are published before April so I intend to read The Rosie Effect too – now that I’ve met and am become slightly besotted with Don Tillman (anti-hero and lead of its prequel).
What’s on your agenda this week?
