Weekly Wrap Up (May 21)


What a week it has been! We had the hottest day of the year so far and I finally got to spend some time in my garden. Pulling weeds, sadly. Not sitting on my bum reading in a comfy chair. I welcomed my guest reviewer Christine to the blog, who’s brilliant. And to top it all off, I was somehow nominated in the Best Newcomer category for the Blogger Awards. (please vote! 😂). I haven’t stopped smiling since and I’m most grateful to the person who nominated me. I’m in incredible company and I wish all of my fellow book bloggers the best of luck!

As far as reading goes, well, definitely slacking off this week and I only managed 5 books. Which is still better than Lorraine. 🤣

Books I read this week :

Books I bought this week :

Only three this week. Which was three more than I planned at the start of the week.

ARC’s received from Netgalley :

Bookpost that arrived this week :

My very first order from the Book Depository, adding to my Orenda collection and completing the Henning Juul series.

On the blog this past week :

Monday : Review for the fab Handcuffs, Truncheon and Polyester Thong

Tuesday : First guest review by Christine who shared her thoughts on Desperation Road

Wednesday : I was on the blog tour for Not Your Average Nurse

Thursday : Reviewed The Freedom Broker

Friday : Christine reviewed Ten Birthdays

Saturday : I posted my review for Dead Woman Walking

Next week on noveldeelights :

I’ll definitely be on two blog tours. I know that much. I’ll be hosting a stop on the tours for Finding Alison by Deirdre Eustace and The Revelation Room by Mark Tilbury. As always, I do have a schedule for the rest of the week but we all know what happens to that when I’m in charge.

Have a brilliant week and happy reading! xx

  1. Lol, lol, Dee! You make me laugh. And what a treasure trove of great book ideas you dropped in there today. I will have fun sorting them out. And last, but not least, major congrats on your nomination!

  2. I’m so happy for your nomination! 😀 Two Sisters and The Serial Killer’s Daughter are at the top of my TBR! Better start reading them soon!!! I also bought Baby Dear, couldn’t resist! I bought the Enger books a month ago and I’ve been resisting to buy Cursed until I get to all the others first, haha

  3. Lucky you for good weather! Down here it’s been raining for four days straight and it’s freezing… Almost like Winter came early this year. xD I need to read both The Serial Killer’s Daughter and Two Sisters ASAP! Did you like them and which of the two should I read first? Happy reading! 😘

    1. If it makes you feel better, it was just one day! 😄

      Let’s see, tough choice, but I’m going to go for The Serial Killer’s Daughter. I gave both 4 stars but felt Two Sisters was a tad slow and a bit more predictable than the other one. 😘

      1. Hmmm..I debated between which of the two to request as I’m trying to keep some sort of control over my Net Galley numbers and I picked Two Sisters. I think I will enjoy Two Sisters, but maybe I should just bite the bullet and request the Murderer’s daughter too.
