Weekly Wrap-Up (May 20)


I’ve had one of those weeks where I thought I was being superbly productive but upon looking back, it looks as if I’ve not done much of anything.

Yesterday, I spent my day in front of the television. This is a big deal at my house. I don’t normally watch a lot of tv. Hence why I spent five minutes trying to figure out how our remote worked again and where the channels were. 🙄 Anyway, I watched coverage of the Royal Wedding and really enjoyed it. As a fan of Suits, I was looking forward to seeing the cast in all their finery and they didn’t disappoint. I don’t care what anyone else says, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are just lovely together and I wish them all the happiness in the world.

I also had a horrible migraine and a few really long phone conversations with my dad involving all sorts of complicated and bang-your-head-against-a-brick-wall family issues. Reading-wise, this of course put a bit of a dent into things. However, I still managed 5 books so it’s not all bad.

I wasn’t going to buy any. But my finger slipped.

At least I still have this relatively under control. Downloaded for blog tour purposes.


On the blog this past week

Tuesday : Shared an extract on the blog tour for Absolution by Paul E. Hardisty

Wednesday : Joined the blog tour for Meet Me At The Museum by Anne Youngson

Thursday : Hosted a stop on the blog blitz for Blood Runs Cold by Dylan Young

Friday : Finally got to share my review for Dying Truth by Angela Marsons  on the blog blitz

Saturday : Reviewed The Brighton Mermaid by Dorothy Koomson

Sunday : Joined the blog tour for Juliet & Romeo by David Hewson

Next week on Novel Deelights

No less than eight (8!!!) blog tours. Yes, I’m losing the plot. Why do you ask?! 😜
Among them The Chosen Ones by Carol Wyer and I’ll be joining in the celebrations for the Cathy Connolly Trilogy by Sam Blake as well. Lots to look out for. May need to squeeze in a nap or two (ten).

In other news, the Annual Blogger Bash Awards Winners were announced yesterday. I didn’t win, didn’t even make the top three in my category. It’s okay, I’m over it now. 😄. Huge congratulations to everyone who won and was nominated! You’re all fabulous to me! And a massive thank you to those who nominated me and voted for me. I appreciate it all! Much love ❤️

And that’s it for another week. Off to prep some posts and start reading. Such a glamorous life I lead.

Have a fabulous week and lots of happy reading! xx

      It’s definitely better than yesterday but it’s still hanging on like that annoying piece of gum at the bottom of your shoe 😂 xx

    Well done for being nominated! Even though you didn’t win, it shows your blog is appreciated enough for people to make the effort to nominate you. If there was an award for Blog Tour Supremo I’m sure you’d ace it 😀

    Congratulations nonetheless with your nomination, that in itself is awesome (and more than I’ve achieved so far)! I want to read The Craftsman now too. I thought I didn’t, because it had witchcraft involved, but I changed my mind after reading some pretty awesome reviews :-). I have – not accidentally – purchased Cross Her Heart as well. After reading Behind Her Eyes, I want more of that excellent writing ! Good luck with your 8 blog tours this week, I can’t wait to see them all 🙂 but especially your stop for The Chosen Ones 🙂

      The witchcraft is not an overwhelming layer to the story, if that makes you feel better. It’s such an awesome book, it would be a shame for you to skip it just because of that. Plus, first book in a trilogy. Don’t fall behind 🤣

        OK I’m going to follow your advice and try to read it.. this year :-). I didn’t know it was part one of a trilogy, however.. thanks for the info!

    I hate it when I’m trying not to buy books, and my finger slips… happens all too often! 😉

    Aw, never mind – some of the best people have been nominated and then not won… 😉 If it’s any consolation, I’ve never heard of the winners… 😀
