Weekly Wrap-Up (July 22)


Good heavens, did this week drag on or what? Not at all as productive either due to various interruptions, bloody migraines and people messing with my reading time.

Books I read this week :

“Only” six this week. I thought it was more. 😂


Books I bought this week :

Remember my self-imposed book buying ban? Ha! Hahahaha! Ahem. Feel free to count them yourself. I’ll wait.

Let’s all take a minute to blame Emma for the British Library Crime Classics, shall we? 😉

ARC’s received via Netgalley :

Three this week. I have to stop requesting stuff if I want to clear up my backlog before I go on holiday. Anyway, I had requested They All Fall Down ages ago and was convinced my request would be denied. Keep that in mind when you see my book post.


This week’s book post :

Oh, look! There it is again! It’s like a bus. First you can’t get one at all. Then they all come at once. *facepalm* Courtesy of the lovely Inge! 😘

On the blog this past week :

Monday : Reviewed Holy Island by LJ Ross

Tuesday : Shared my publication day review of The Art of Fear

Wednesday : Welcomed back Christine with her review for Digital Velocity

Thursday : Posted my review for The Theseus Paradox

Friday : Joined the blog tour for Nemesister

Saturday : Hosted a stop on the blog tour for Dying Art

Sunday : Shared my review for Broken Branches


Next week on noveldeelights :

Next week I’ll be sharing my thoughts on the harrowing The Unquiet Dead and I’ll be on two more Bloodhound Books blog tours for Red is the Colour and Till the Dust Settles. As per usual, there will be some stuff in between but I haven’t quite figured out what yet. 😄

Question of the week : With so many bloggers at Harrogate, how can there be anything else to talk about this week? Author and blogger events. Have you been to one? If not, would you like to? Do you have a preference for one?

And that’s a wrap! Wishing you all a wonderful week and lots of happy reading! xx

    Loved In Your Name by Rob Ashman I think this is the best crime series I’ve read this year. Hope you manage to read more this week x

      That’s quite an endorsement! I need to catch up!

      Hm, so far this week? It’s Wednesday and I’m only at book 3 so … meh. 😄

    Haha that’s murphy’s law! The big question is: do you read the paperback or the kindle version :-). I’d love to know the answers too about author and blogger events. I feel I really missed out on this one, I’d love to meet at least one author in my life and another blogger. And have you seen all those books?! It is far though.. I’ve been looking at Crimefest in Bristol and The London Bookfair. That last one would be the easiest to reach but I don’t know if it’s as interesting as the rest… I’m still not sure I dare to go all alone though 😦

      I read the paperback because paperback!!!! But I did keep track on my kindle to see how long it would take me to finish it 😄.

      I think Harrogate sounds the most interesting and fun. The London Bookfair I think is more of a professional thing, not really a blogger event. I did have a look at prices for Harrogate but found it quite expensive, plus I’d need flights on top of that as well. We will go some day, Inge! Just not next year! 🤣

    I didn’t know Claire Douglas had got a Kindle short coming out so thanks for posting about that. I have just pre-ordered it for free!

    Harrogate is on my bucket list. I should have gone before I had my little boy – it will have to wait now until he’s a bit older but it’s something to look forward to. We do have a fantastic literary festival in Sheffield anyway, for which the programme should be out next month, so I can’t complain.

      Oh yay! You’re welcome! It was the one time Amazon actually sent me an email notification with a book I haven’t yet bought. 😂

      Harrogate is on my bucket list too. Hope the program for the Sheffield festival is a fab one!

    Haha six was still more than I was able to read! 😉 And who needs a bookban anyway? Saw some pretty good titles on there too. (Stillhouse Lake, Stillhouse Lake, Stillhouse Lake!) Have a wonderful week! ❤

        I personally LOVED it! But I guess the story can go both ways… The POV from the serial killer’s wife and children and the consequences of being related to such a creeper was very well portrayed.
