Weekly Wrap-Up (November 12)

weekly-wrap-up

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?!

33219565

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! 😘

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

  1. I love your treasured possession, what a lovely friend, Author and story. Go you, for having a 90 + Netgalley rating. My most treasured book possession is my special edition beautiful embossed, quoted cover of an Anne of Green Gables book. Hubby bought it for me for Christmas a few years ago, and it is my favourite book, and most beautiful book.
    Happy reading Eva,
    Amanda.

    1. I’ve never read Anne of Green Gables though I do remember watching it on tv eons ago. That book sounds like a wonderful treasure! Cookies for your hubby! Mine wouldn’t even think of getting me something like that. 😄

  2. What a wonderful friend. All of my signed books are treasured and I would never part with them (though to be fair I find it hard to part with any book!!). I can’t believe you only bought one book, are you ill? 🙂

  3. Amazing story, lucky you! My most treasured book… I don’t know really, I have a few top rated books that I really like to look at, a few signed ones.. and there is one that I treasure because it was the first book sent to me by a publisher. I wasn’t particularly fond of the story but I’ll never part with it because it meant I was a real blogger. It’s called What Alice Knew by TA Cotterell.
    You did great this week and I’m sure you’ll make up for it and buy double next week ;-). So what was the novel you DNF?

  4. Good luck with the crazy blogging week! My most treasured book is a signed first edition of The Handmaid’s Tale that I picked up in a second hand bookshop a few years ago. It wasn’t cheap, but I love it!

  5. What a lovely friend to have! Mine are probably my fab hardback Nonesuch Dickens books which Santa has been giving me one of each year for several years now. I always wanted a beautiful matching set of Dickens and now I’m about halfway there… 😀
