Weekly Wrap-Up (October 8)


What a week it’s been! Wasted a lot of time waiting on deliveries that didn’t arrive, appointments that didn’t show up and in the midst of it all, my favourite tree in my garden lost a huge chunk during a storm. I’ve since had someone come take a look and sadly, the tree is rotting and will have to be removed. ๐Ÿ˜ญ. Luckily, nobody was hurt and there’s no damage. And on the bright side, I got to work with a power tool. Though not for very long because the chain kept falling off. Yep, one of those weeks. ๐Ÿ˜„

So, my reading took a hit. A big hit! I checked Goodreads four times because I couldn’t quite believe it myself. I have read a incredibly pathetic number of 3 books this week. ๐Ÿ˜ณ

Books I read this week :


Booksย I bought this week :

Way more impressive! Yes, I hereby declare my self-imposed book buying ban OVER!


ARC’s received via Netgalley :

Really looking forward to reading these!


Bookpost that arrived this week :

I was very lucky to be sent an early proof of this one by Michael Joseph.

More blog tours! On Tuesday, I’ll be hosting a stop on the tour for The Fallen Agent by Oliver Tidy. And on Saturday, I’ll be on two Bookouture tours : Her Last Secret by Barbara Copperthwaite and Snowflakes, Iced Cakes and Second Chances by Sue Watson. Yes, still have to read those. IT’S FINE! ๐Ÿ˜„

In other news, I’ve decided to keep Sunday review-free, unless I’m on a blog tour of course. I may do the same for Wednesdays just to give myself some breathing space. We’ll see how it goes. I’ve posted a review pretty much every day since I started this blog but with weeks like this past one, I’ll be running out of reviews fast! ๐Ÿ˜„

That’s it for another week! Have a great one and happy reading! xx

          1. I have so many books I do want to read but my reading has slowed right down. I have several more to read for upcoming blog tours so need to knuckle down!


  1. I think you’ve caught “the book review cafรฉ”bug ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚I’ve come to the conclusion I will read as and when I can, post reviews when I want it works for me. I use to post every single day but since I cut back to only sharing review 4 x a week my blog seems to have gone from strength to strength. Hope you get more reading done this week and sorry about your tree x

    1. Yeah, I thought about it on holiday and felt I needed a bit more of a balance hence the few changes I’m trying to make. We’ll see if it works. If not, I’ll have to ponder some more. And at least, three is better than one. ๐Ÿ˜‚


  2. Lucky you, nobody would ever trust me with a chainsaw in my hands :-)! Let’s just admit, those book-buying bans never last long with any of us :-). The amount of books you’re reading it is also really a necessity.. we wouldn’t want to run out of books now do we :-)?

    1. Pretty sure running out of books is never going to happen ๐Ÿ˜„

      My book buying ban lasted longer than I expected it to. But the monster has been unleashed again now. Already bought two and it’s only Monday! ๐Ÿ˜ณ

  3. Poor tree! And three books is a mountain compared to what I got done… AKA zip, none! October has been a total disaster reading wise so far. xD I hope next week will treat you better!
