Apparently it’s Monday again, so time to link up with Sheila from Book Journey to share what I am reading.
It’s also Australia Day here in Oz, which means two very important things… firstly, it’s a public holiday (so #yay); and secondly bloggers around Australia are participating in a blog hop / link-up bookish giveaway. Here’s a link to my post if you’re an Aussie dweller and keen to enter, and I’d encourage you to check out Shelleyrae’s blog, Book’d Out, for a list of all of those participating.
What I read
I had a slightly more fruitful reading week this past week.
As planned I read Unlock Your Style, however… I still didn’t get to Simsion’s Rosie Project and / or Effect as some new books appeared.
A novella by Tony Parsons, Dead Time, popped up in my NetGalley approvals; and I received two books via Hachette. (I don’t get a lot of real books so get ridiculously excited by their arrival!) These were my bread and butter type books as well. Alex Kava’s Breaking Creed; and JD Robb’s latest, Obsession in Death. (And regular readers may recall JD Robb is one of my go-to authors and her In Death series one of my coping mechanisms!)
What I wrote
I published reviews of Unlock Your Style and my blog stats for the day increased about ten-fold as the author, Nikki, shared my post on her FB page!
I also published my review of Kava’s Breaking Creed on the blog – a book which was a tad predictable but one I inhaled in a sitting.
In a book-heavy week I also wrote about non-scale victories and the fact I was dreading my personal training (PT) session during which my trainer would want to weigh me. (And received a lot of useful feedback and lovely support!)
This week’s reading
Graeme Simsion’s two Rosie books still sit in a little pile on my desk – haunting me and flaunting their to-be-readness. #bastards We’ll be seeing their owner soon so I really ‘should’ try to read them. Soon.
I’ve also got a book I won around Christmas time by an Aussie blogger, Kelly Exeter called Your Best Year Yet. It’s only short but probably something which could be useful given that I’ve been in a bit of a grumpy mood of late!
As for this week’s other reading… I’m really not sure. I’ve now finished devouring all of the DVDs I bought at Christmas so have more time on my hands again! You’ll just have to check back in next week to see what I got up to. 😉
What’s on your agenda for the week?
