Weekly Wrap-Up (July 29)


This week I’m mostly glad to find I wasn’t roasted alive. Good grief, I can’t even begin to describe how bloody hot it was. I love the heat and glorious sunshine but this? I felt like the universe was preparing me for when I go to hell ๐Ÿ˜‚

My reading took a little bit of a beating. Sort of. Serious lack of sleep and the heat (not sure I mentioned the heat) made for incredibly uncooperative eyes.

Anyway, I’m supposed to be leaving the house in about an hour so better get to it.

Booksย I’ve read this week

Still 7. Suppose I can’t complain.

Booksย I’ve bought this week

Oh. This is bad. So very, very bad. ๐Ÿ˜ณ

You may want to grab a cup of tea for this bit. At one point, I realised I had bought 11 books. Quite frankly, that’s a ridiculous number. Silly me posted about it on twitter, where I was promptly attacked by the most evil voices (you know who you are!) encouraging me to round the number up to 20. I resisted the peer pressure ๐Ÿ˜œ.

But still … At least it’s an even number. Right? Right? *crickets*

You’d think I wouldn’t request any with the amount I’m buying, wouldn’t you? Ha! Two for blog tours. The others were just too good to pass up on.

Bookpost what landed on my doorstep this past week

The finished paperback of The Confession by Jo Spain courtesy of Quercus and a copy of A Necessary Murder by M.J. Tjia, which I won in a giveaway run by Legend Press.

And that’s it. I ran out of time. This only took me almost an hour to compile and I should really go make myself look halfway decent to do that pesky socialising thing today. Wine! Give me all the wine! ๐Ÿ˜ณ

Wishing you all the most amazing week and lots of happy reading! xx

  1. At least you can read them at your leisure ๐Ÿ˜‚ I quite fancy Gina Kirkhamโ€™s books and I havenโ€™t heard if Iโ€™ve been accepted for the Getaway Girls…but Iโ€™ll be buying if not!

  2. Haha! Your ridiculous out-of-control book acquiring addiction always cheers me up! ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ You’ll love the Elly Griffiths books though, and I hope the Ruth Wares live up to our expectations – you can read them quick and tell me which one I should go for next!

    1. It’s a good thing I don’t do that TBR feature you do. I’d be in so much trouble ๐Ÿ˜‚

      I’m really looking forward to the Elly Griffiths! I figure I’d get through this series a lot faster than Ruth Galloway. Only read four so far of that one.

        1. When I read Mrs Westaware, I didnโ€™t realise that was the same author. I passed on The Lying Game when it came out as I saw quite a lot of โ€œmehโ€ reviews. But a full set is a full set ๐Ÿ˜‚ (may just start with The Woman in Cabin 10 though)

  3. Yeah, 20 sounds good ๐Ÿ™‚ I can’t believe just how many books you managed to get in a week. I have read a few of the titles though and they were really good so I hope that you enjoy them all. Have a fab week. Happy reading ๐Ÿ™‚
