In case you missed it, it was superduper hot as a heatwave hit these shores so there was lots of ice-cream and very little sleep. The weather has done a complete u-turn and now I’m cold. I swear I was born in the wrong country. So, warm and sunny weather and of course, all those people who don’t have a garden come and hang out in yours. Bye bye reading time, which means I managed to read 7 books this week. Technically, seven and a half as there was one I didn’t finish but I’m not listing that one. And yes, I know, that’s not bad but I was kind of aiming for 9. 😄
Books I read this week :
Books I bought this week :
Only 1 since a little birdie told me last week that e-books don’t count. 😂 Although, as promised, I tried that theory out on the OH and failed miserably!
ARC’s received via Netgalley :
Technically, two. Because the last one is for a blog tour. I love how I’m constantly trying to find excuses.
This week’s book post :
I won a signed paperback of Exquisite over on My Reading Corner and Karen also kindly sent me her copy of The Friend. Camino Island was a bookdepository order that arrived this week and What She Lost was sent to me by the author.
On the blog this past week :
Monday : Reviewed One Wrong Turn
Tuesday : Hosted a stop on the A Deadly Game blog tour
Sunday : Shared my review for the brilliant Katharine of Aragon by Alison Weir and posted my Weekly Wrap-Up. Then I had a nap. Zzzzzzz.
Next week on noveldeelights :
I’ll be hosting stops on blog tours every day except for Friday. I don’t even know how that happened but there you go. Here’s a spoiler : one of them is an absolute corker!
In other news, I managed to get the Top Reviewer badge on Netgalley. I may have patted myself on the shoulder.
Question of the week : Why are some ebooks so expensive? No, really, why? I saw one a while ago that was listed at $20! Do you think it’s right that you sometimes pay the same price for an ebook as for a paperback? If the prices are nearly the same, do you opt for the ebook or the paperback? I tend to not want to pay more than $10 for an ebook. Especially when you can get the paperback for less sometimes, depending on where you shop. So, thoughts?
Have a stupendously awesome week and happy reading! xx
