Spring has sprung and I am one happy bunny to finally see the back of the winter season. Nothing much else to report this week. I have no idea where it went. One minute it was Monday and now it’s Sunday. Other than reading, I’ve not done anything productive and I’m totally okay with that. *kicks dust bunnies under the carpet*
So, what have I read this week, I hear you asking.
Books I’ve read this week
Seven isn’t too shabby. Could have had eight but I got massively distracted on social media for a few hours 😄
Books I’ve bought this week
Oh. This is bad. So very bad. I don’t know really know what happened but in my defence, I’ve read the Joseph Knox books already and just wanted the hardcovers. And the four books in the Charlie Parker series are totally Jen’s fault. And Wuthering Heights, well, I’ve never read that one and that cover just yelled at me “buy me! buy me!” and really, who am I not to listen? The other ones jumped into my shopping basket and wouldn’t bloody move so in order to avoid a scene, I bought them. True story. 😳

You’d think with the amount of books I’m buying, I wouldn’t request anything, wouldn’t you? But no. I can’t even use the blog tour excuse this week. However, who could possibly resist the urge to request The Fifth to Die?! If you’ve read The Fourth Monkey, then you’ll totally understand! I didn’t think I had a hope in hell of getting it so I may have fainted when the approval email landed in my inbox.
On the blog this past week
You know, I’m pretty sure there was a moment where I said I might consider slowing down just a little bit. Anyone hear that? *crickets* Hm.
Monday : Shared my review for The Lullaby by Leïla Slimani
Tuesday : Joined the blog tour for Too Close to Breathe by Olivia Kiernan
Thursday : Reviewed the fantastic The Smiling Man by Joseph Knox
Friday : Joined the blog tour for 88° North by J.F. Kirwan
Saturday : Shared an extract for my stop on the blog tour for Bryant & May : Hall of Mirrors by Christopher Fowler
Sunday : Hosted the final stop on the blog tour for Lying to You by Amanda Reynolds
Next week on Novel Deelights
Another full schedule. A few blog tours, of course. Look out for The Stranger by Kate Riordan and the Ice Swimmer by Kjell Ola Dahl. I’ll also be sharing my reviews for Deadly Secrets by Robert Bryndza (I’d really like it if autocorrect would stop changing that to Brenda behind my back 🙄) and Drift, Stumble, Fall by M. Jonathan Lee.
In other news : Novel Deelights has been nominated for a Bloggers Bash Award in the Hidden Gem category. Squee! Thank you very much to those who nominated me! You rock my socks off! 😍
If you feel so inclined to vote for my blog, you can do so by clicking HERE. I’d be really grateful but I’d equally appreciate it incredibly if you vote for any of the other blogs that take your fancy. Bloggers rock and each and every one of them deserves to be recognised for all the hard work they do in spreading the book love!
Also, for those wondering why I’m not talking to them on Twitter, I’ve been in twitter jail since Thursday and have apparently broken a long list of rules as I can’t seem to make my way back out. So I apologise for not being able to share your blog posts or interact in any way. Fingers crossed I’ll be back soon!
And that’s a wrap! Wishing you all a fabulous week and lots of happy reading! xx
