This week has been the perfect reminder of why I read. It is and always will be an escape and keeping my head down gave me the opportunity to catch up with all that blog tour reading I still had to do. Win! 😄
Books I read this week :
This week I read 7 books. Technically, 7 and a half but that half sadly ended up being a DNF. It happens.
Books I bought this week :
One. I checked twice to make sure. I’m totally slacking. What the heck?!
ARC’s received via Netgalley :
Two for blog tours, one I didn’t think I’d get. The shelf is growing but my approval rating is still in the 90’s so I’m okay with that.
This week’s book post :
Have a wee story. In case you didn’t know, I live in Belgium. My dear friend Dom lives near Atlanta, where Karin Slaughter is from. And yet somehow, I was the one who introduced her to Karin’s work. Years later, Dom has the opportunity to meet Karin Slaughter at a signing, tells her the story and then sends me my most treasured possession on my bookshelf. 😍 If you’re reading this, Dom, thank you! 😘
On the blog this past week :
Monday : Shared my review for Murder in Little Shendon
Tuesday : I welcomed Larry Enmon, author of Wormwood, to the blog.
Wednesday : This Week in Books
Thursday : Joined the blog tour for The Secret Mother by Shalini Boland
Friday : Pankaj Giri, author of The Fragile Thread of Hope, visited the blog.
Saturday : Hosted a stop on the blog tour for the CWA Anthology of Short Stories
Sunday : Weekly Wrap-Up
Next week on Novel Deelights :
Next week will be utterly insane on the blog. I have no idea how that happened, other than I can’t seem to stop myself from saying “sure, I’ll help!” but there you go. It is what it is and as long as I actually remember to post all the things I should be posting, it’ll be great! I think. 😄
Question of the week : What is your most treasured possession on your bookshelf?
Wishing you all a fabulous week and lots of happy reading! xx
