I will not mention the weather this week. I will not mention the weather this week. I will not mention the weather this week. I will not mention the weather this week.
[Still hot as hell, still no rain. In case you wondered.]
And so this week’s introduction will be short since I have nothing else to talk about. 😂
On to the books then!
Books I’ve read this week
This requires some explanation. Yes, I’m aware there are only 6 books here but … technically it’s 7 because I got halfway through The Defence by Steve Cavanagh when I dropped it because Fatal Inheritance arrived and I’m also halfway through my current read so … 7 😜
Books I’ve bought this week
Argh! Dear self, when I say no more books, I mean NO MORE BOOKS!
To be fair, I’ve been eyeing Wolf Hall and Bring Up The Bodies for ages but I quite wanted a hardcover. I ran out of patience so paperback it is. (Any excuse)
ARC’s received via Netgalley
Three, all for blog tours. I have a few pending but I’m feeling fairly confident I won’t get them. Still, I won’t know unless I try. (Sidenote : how annoying is it to see a publisher constantly tweet asking for bloggers to request a certain title when you yourself have done so weeks ago and still haven’t got it? 😂)
Bookpost what landed on my doorstep this week
The Surrogate by Guy Bolton, Hollywood Noir via Point Blank. The Jacobite’s Wife by Morag Edwards courtesy of Hookline and finally The Light Over London via author Julia Kelly.

Look at that. Only 3 blog tours. You’re impressed, aren’t you? 😂
And that’s it! Guess what I’m doing this afternoon. That’s right, another Sunday spent amongst people (yuck) doing that pesky socialising thing. I’ve so had it. Even the thought of there being wine isn’t cheering me up.
Wait, no, I’m good. 🤣
Question of the week : When you go on holiday, does your blog go on holiday too? Do you read (duh) but also review? Or not? If you do, do you post those reviews during your holiday or do you wait until you’re back home?
Right, that’s it from me for another week. I have a bit of a backlog in writing reviews (if anyone has seen my reviewing mojo, please send it back) so I need to get my head down for an hour or so now.
Hope everyone has a fantastic week and I wish you lots of happy reading! xx
