Weekly Wrap-Up (August 20)


Another week bites the dust. Another week that has me wondering what happened to the summer season. It seems to have completely passed us by this year. I think I caught a glimpse of sunshine this past week but it was such a fleeting moment that I may have dreamt it.

So you’d think I would have been reading up a storm but no such luck. With a national holiday on Tuesday and a long weekend for the hubby, I ended up with a measly 5 books.

Books I read this week :


Books I bought this week :

The self-imposed book buying ban however is in full swing! I’m rocking this thing like you wouldn’t believe!


Technically, that’s 10 since 99 Red Balloons is a pre-order. But still. This is completely getting out of hand. I have a bunch of print copies I totally lost track of and more than a hundred titles on my Kindle. I know that’s not a lot for some of you but I’ve never had this happen before. I was more a buy-as-you-read kind of girl which somehow turned in to buy ALL THE BOOKS! So, I am determined … stop laughing … I am determined to read all at least half, let’s not get carried away here, ten books before I buy new ones. *snort*


ARC’s received via Netgalley


Bookpost that arrived this week :

I received a copy of The Adversary from the lovely Emma and The Cardinal’s Man from the equally lovely Joanna!


On the blog this past week :

Monday : Catching up on author review requests with Deadly Spirits

Tuesday : Reviewed Death Makes a Prophet

Wednesday : Hosted a stop on the blog blitz for The Good Sister

Thursday : Another blog blitz, this time for Dead to Me

Friday : Shared my thoughts on The Unquiet Dead

Saturday : Reviewed The Room by the Lake

Sunday : Joined yet another blog blitz, now for Buried Secrets


Next week on noveldeelights :

Erm, well, there will be reviews. I don’t actually have a set schedule. I like how I just made that sound like it’s a novelty. 😂

In other news : I may just be working on my first ever give-away so watch this space!

That’s a wrap! Wishing you all a fabulous week and lots of happy reading!  xx
