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 😂
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.
Books I’ve read this week
Still 7. Suppose I can’t complain.
Books I’ve bought this week
Oh. This is bad. So very, very bad. 😳
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 😜.
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! 😳
Wishing you all the most amazing week and lots of happy reading! xx
