Weekly Wrap-Up (January 27)


Finally moving closer to the end of January. This months just seems to drag on and on. Another dark and miserable one here. I’m beginning to forget what blue skies and sunshine are like. Spring can’t come soon enough.

Reading wise, all is well at Casa Eva. I’m still trying to switch things up between books I have to read for blog tours and those I just want to read. Basically that means constantly checking my schedule to see if I can squeeze something in. 😄. So far, it’s going rather well. The writing reviews bit, however, is a bit of a struggle and I’m behind on a few.

Books I read this week

Books I bought this week

Erm. I’m not even going to count. A few are pre-orders and … never mind, I clearly have a problem. 😳

ARC’s received via Netgalley

You’d think that with all the buying I’m doing, I’d ignore Netgalley. 🙄

(FYI, Last Cry has had its title changed to Black Heart but the cover wasn’t yet available on Goodreads so you get the old one.)

On the blog this past week

Monday : I shared my review for Perfect Death by Helen Fields

Tuesday : Shared my thoughts on Watch Me by Jody Gehrman

Wednesday : I hosted stops on two blog tours. One was for The Daughter by Lucy Dawson and the other one was for The Innocent Wife by Amy Lloyd

Thursday : Posted my publication day review for The Confession by Jo Spain

Friday : Joined the blog blitz for Liars by Frances Vick

Saturday : I joined the blog tour for The Chalk Man by C.J. Tudor

Sunday : Weekly Wrap-Up

Next week on Novel Deelights

Blog tours, I hear you asking? Well, of course. Three of them, actually. I’ll be kicking off the week with Crossed Out by Malcolm Hollingdrake. I may also have a wee something special on Sunday but my lips are sealed for now.

And that’s it for another week. I am now off to do some cooking and baking as I’m doing that pesky social thing this afternoon. Thank goodness for wine!

Wishing you all a great week and lots of happy reading! xx

    I’m totally with you on not being able to wait for the lighter nights and spring days.
    Wow what a huge book haul you had this week.
    Happy reading and baking!

      Bit of a crazy haul. I’m trying not to buy any this week. Or less, anyway. It’s almost noon on Monday. I already feel rather accomplished 😉

      Have a great week, Amanda! xx

    You already read Thirteen? Oh I can’t wait to hear what you think.. I do hope it’s a good one! but I guess you sort of already gave the answer yourself by ordering 2 other books by Steve Cavanagh. I’m wondering when I will read Seven Death, probably as the very last blogger :-). I just can’t keep up with you guys. Then again, I’m finally reading some books that I already have for a year now so that kind of makes me happy as well :-). Happy reading this week!

      I did! It’s awesome! That may very well be the extent of my review, actually. It’s awesome, go buy it! 😄

      I should read some older books, to be honest. I love it when bloggers do that. It always reminds me of some that have been tucked away on my kindle for months.

        Some? I have loads that I still have to and want to read and I’m feeling quite good that I’m starting to read them now actually. I don’t know how long it will last but I’m trying not to request anything new 🙂

    What did you think of Pierced? I much preferred it to Burned, I’m wondering if I can fit Scarred in before I need to read Killed but I doubt it

      I agree with you. Ooh, look, a flying pig. 😉

      I did think Pierced was better. I’m hoping to squeeze Scarred in this week. If I don’t make it, then it probably won’t happen at all before my stop on the tour for Killed. Fingers crossed!

      I couldn’t resist that cover! It’s so pretty! I didn’t even read what the story is about! 😄

      Wine was enjoyed to the fullest. 😊
