I’m not quite feeling myself these days. Everything and everyone irritates me, I have zero patience and often seem to find myself close to bursting out into tears for no good reason whatsoever. I don’t know if it’s the time of year (although that’s never been an issue before), the horribly cold weather, old age, hormones, the past eight months or so catching up with me, lack of sleep or a midlife crisis! 😱 Do women get a midlife crisis? Am I supposed to go out and buy leather pants and a wee red sports car or a motorcycle? Or find a toy-boy? How does one find one of those anyway? Does Amazon sell them? 😂
Anyway! Thank goodness for books, right? It’s been a pretty good week and I’m ahead of my Goodreads challenge which always makes my competitive streak happy.
Books I read this week
Technically, seven. However, one I abandoned at the 35% mark and one I can’t talk about so that’s not included here. Oooh, intriguing. 😉.
Books I bought this week
I was aiming for none because my kindle is set to explode and my bookshelves are about to collapse. So I bought 8. 😂. Some are pre-orders though. They don’t count, right? And apart from the third one, I already owned the C.J. Carver ones on kindle but I wanted the paperback copies as well. Excuses, excuses.
ARC’s received via Netgalley
I couldn’t request Rachel Abbott’s new book fast enough. The other two, you guessed it, are for blog tours.

And that’s it! Best get my reading on. The 100 reviews Netgalley badge is firmly in my sight and I want the precious! Or maybe I should write this backlog of reviews first. Hm.
Wishing you all a great week and lots of happy reading! xx
