Weekly Wrap-Up (July 15)


At the risk of repeating myself : where the heck did this week go?!

Still quite warm here, this weekend especially so, and no rain in sight. Also, I think I may be a tad poorly as I bought my first ever pair of shorts. If the sun goes off to hide, feel free to blame my pale legs. Snow White has nothing on me! 🤣

With the World Cup Football winding down, I’m back to having lots more reading time. This totally counts as productivity in my book, no matter the state of my house. Just saying.

Books I’ve read this week

Yes, yes. Eight books AND one I didn’t finish. AND an incredibly teasing 6 chapters of The Silent Patient by Alex Michaelidis, which is to be published in February and I’m pretty sure it’s going to be huuuuuuge! Add it to your TBR right now!

Books I’ve bought this week

Oops. I knew it wouldn’t last. #notsorry

ARC’s received via Netgalley

One a “read now”, three for blog tours. Sadly, my request for the new Karin Slaughter was turned down 😭

On the blog this past week

Monday : Joined the blog tour for How Far We Fall by Jane Shemilt

Tuesday : Hosted a stop on the blog tour for No Further Questions by Gillian McAllister and I also shared my review for The Fifth To Die by J.D. Barker

Thursday : Shared my review for Last Time I Lied by Riley Sager

Saturday : Suffered a wee mishap when I posted a blog tour review 12 days too early 😳

Next week on Novel Deelights

What would my blog look like without tours, eh? I guess we won’t be finding out any time soon. 😂

Monday : Blog tour | Review | The Silent Sister by Shalini Boland.

Wednesday : Blog tour | Content | Pretty Ugly Lies by Pamela Crane
Thursday : Blog tour | Review | The Emperor of Shoes by Spencer Wise

And that’s it for another wrap-up! Off to melt. Wishing you all a most wonderful week and lots off happy reading! xx

    Aha so that’s what happened to your vanishing review yesterday. I thought I was going mad when I tweeted it but then the link didn’t work. 😀

      WordPress fail. Or technically, Eva fail. I meant to just leave it up and post it again on my actual date but reverted it to a draft and it was gone from the blog so I figured I’d just leave it that way. I need a beginner’s guide for dummies 🤣

    I’m on the blog tour for The Emperor of Shoes and haven’t even opened it yet so you can guess what I’ll be doing for the rest of the day. I’m in awe of how many books you managed to get through this week.

      I’ll let you in on a little secret : neither have I. At the rate I’m going, I probably won’t open it until tomorrow. Nothing like some pressure, eh? You’ve got this, Cathy!

        I seem to be in last minute reading mode at the moment. I blame the blog tour break I had in June because I then signed up for loads in July (which seemed an age away at the time). Obviously not as many as you – you’re the blog tour queen.😀

    You’re like my idol! I wish I could read 8 books in a week!! You’re tempting me with your purchases!! Should I go ahead and add Silent Patient? In the Dark looks good too (though I’m starting to tire of staircases on covers. lol

      You most definitely should add The Silent Patient! Trust me! These six chapters I was able to read were some of the best I’ve read this year! (I hear you on the repetitive covers. There’s a lot of them around. Seems people are running out of creativity)

    I sooo agree, that extract of Silent Patient was really good, such an intriguing starting point! I love how many books you’ve read again! I can’t wait to hear your thoughts about that new detective in The Birthday :-). Happy reading this week!

      Bit of a wait on the new detective. It’s not published until late September.

      Brilliant extract, wasn’t it? I can’t wait to read the full thing! February seems quite a long way away.

    A gap 😱 what happened, a freak accident or you’ve finally learnt how to say no!? 😂 I also bought The Death of Mrs Westaway, I’m hoping it lives up to the gothic vibes I keep hearing about! I bought You Were Made For This too, for no other reason that the hardback was on offer for £5, I haven’t even read the blurb 😂
