Weekly Wrap-Up (September 3)


I don’t even want to think about how it’s September already. I’m pretty sure it was Christmas last week! Still, 5 more sleeps and I’ll be on my way to Tuscany. I’ve made the awful mistake of checking the weather forecast which promises little sunshine and lots of rain. So, basically the same as the rest of this miserable summer. Fabulous! 😂

It’s been a productive reading week and I managed to remove 7 books from my TBR. Not counting The Text since it was a short story.

Books I read this week :


Books I bought this week :

Brace yourself! Are you ready?

NONE! Nada! Zip! I struggled and almost accidentally had another moment where my finger slipped but I made it. Not sure it’s worth it though. Feels an awful lot like the most horrendous punishment. 😉

ARC’s received via Netgalley :

This would have been zero too but then Bookouture threw a spanner in the works, as per usual!


Bookpost that arrived this week :

This totally made up for the not buying any! I won Floating Theatre in a giveaway run by the lovely Cathy! The Fourteenth letter was sent to me by the publisher. As was Murder Most Foul because they sympathised with my self-imposed book buying ban which I thought was absolutely brilliant and made me laugh! The other three were sent to me by my dear friend Vicki!


On the blog this past week :

Still busy, busy, busy!

Monday : Reviewed I Know Where She Is

Tuesday : Shared my review for Friend Request

Wednesday : Shared my thoughts on Final Girls

Thursday : Hosted a stop on the blog tour for Witch Dust

Friday : Shared my publication day review for Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Seek and my thoughts on the free Kindle short story The Text

Saturday : Joined the blog tour for Hide and Seek

Sunday : Joined other fab bloggers on the blog blitz for The Accident


Next week on noveldeelights :

I may be a mere five days away from my holiday but there’s no slowing down on the blog! I’ll be hosting three blog tours : Death in Dulwich, The Blood of Kings and The Girl Who Came Back. I have two other reviews ready to go to fill up the other two days.

But from Saturday onwards, this blog is on holiday. I thought about scheduling posts but since I’ll most likely be without wifi, I wouldn’t be able to check if they posted anyway so I figured I’d save myself the stress. Now all I need to do is decide which books I’m taking with me. How hard can that be? 😂 Oh, and clothes. Guess I should pack that as well.

And that’s it for another week. Have a great one and happy reading! xx

      I don’t know. Seemed like a good idea at the time. I’ll probably go completely overboard in October which kind of defeats the purpose 😄

      Technically seven. The Text was only 40 pages so that really doesn’t count 😄

    Not buying is bearable if you get sent books I guess.
    I’m going back to read your review of friend request as I did vote for you to read that one. I don’t check blogs as much in the weekdays so it’s handy when you do your weekly round up to see what I missed. I hope you enjoyed friend request as much as I think it looks great.

      Oh, super! That’s exactly why I include that round-up so I’m glad someone is finding use for it!

    Thanks for the shout out for your The Floating Theatre prize. I’m off to Venice next week and like you been checking the weather forecast and seeing thundery showers. Still even showers on holiday must be better than showers at home and perhaps the forecast will be wrong. Enjoy your holiday and your holiday reading.

      Ooh, Venice! Haven’t been there but I’m sure it’s amazing. Have a wonderful time and fingers crossed for the weather. We can compare notes afterwards. 😄

    8 books this week, wow (and I do always include a short story as a ‘book’ – makes the TBR mountain look better!!) Have a lovely holiday. Shame about the weather, I do hope the forecast is wrong and you get marvellous sunshine.
