It was/is a long weekend here which basically means a bunch of people did/do all they could/can to take away my precious reading time. So rude. But their evil tactics didn’t work and I still managed to read 8 books. Thank you sleepless nights. I actually thought it was less when I started this post so I’m really not complaining. Much.
Books I read this week :
Books I bought this week :
Another three. I just can’t help myself apparently. I should be sorry. #notsorry
ARC’s received from Netgalley :
Two. Which is bad considering I am on a temporary self-imposed half-assed ban as I have a multitude of other books I should be reading first but even sitting on my hands didn’t work as I tried to hit the request button with my nose. I can’t even begin to describe the look I got from the OH in that moment.
On the other hand, posting my review for The Weight of Lies on Netgalley yesterday got me the badge for 25 reviews so I feel quite accomplished, as it goes. 😄
Bookpost that arrived this week :
A big fat zero of humongous nothingness. Does that fall into the category of blogger fail?
On the blog this past week :
Monday : I was on the blog tour for Finding Alison
Wednesday : This Week in Books which I actually stuck to for the first time! Go me!
Thursday : Kicked off the blog tour for The Revelation Room
Friday : Posted my review for The Killer on the Wall
Saturday : Shared my review for Hell’s Gate
Next week on noveldeelights :
Next week is going to be a busy one on the blog. I will be on a few more blog tours including One To Watch by Rachel Amphlett and Vile City by Jennifer Lee Thomson. And I’ll also be sharing reviews for … erm, whatever takes my fancy on that day, really. Schedule? What schedule?
Also, after much consideration, I have decided to drop star ratings from my blog so my posts will look a little different from now on. I will obviously still be using them on Goodreads and Amazon, because you have to but not here. I am hopeful (ha!) that my reviews on their own will let you know how I felt about a book without the rating. I may still change my mind in the future. Pretty sure my middle name is fickle.
Finally, just a wee reminder that I’ve been nominated for the Best Newcomer award at the Blogger Awards. There are a few more days left for you to cast your vote and I’d be ever so grateful if you would consider me. 😊
Have a fantabulous week and happy reading! xx
