In the week that kept on giving, I was forced to socialise not once, not twice but THREE BLOODY TIMES and I’m not sure I’ll ever recover! Good grief. How are there people out there who think this is fun?!
So of course my reading took a beating. All those precious hours wasted on people and small talk. Ew. 😂
Books I’ve read this week
A measly four. 😭 And once again behind on my schedule. I was doing so well!
Books I’ve bought this week
Only two. That’s not too shabby. I wasn’t going to buy any but Inge @ The Belgian Reviewer made me buy Jar of Hearts and I can apparently not just buy the one book so I added another one.
I also finally (!!!) received the first two books from my Goldsboro Book of the Month Club membership thing. That’s right. The books for June and July arrived this week. I wonder when the one for August will get here. I’m thinking November. 😂
ARC’s received via Netgalley
One for blog tour purposes (by our very own Ronnie Turner! So exciting!), though not until October. One because I could. One finally approved and still not entirely sure it was worth the wait. Three still pending! 🙄

And that’s it. Thank goodness this week is over. I look forward to next week where I shall be hiding away in my wee bubble, surrounded by books, no socialising in sight. I will hurt anyone who dares to try and thwart my plans!
First though, must catch up on reviews. Which takes me to …
Question of the week : How quickly do you write your reviews? Do you write them straight after finishing a book? Or do you let them pile up? Do you take notes you can fall back on?
I try to take notes but fail miserably. Especially when I’m reading a gripping page-turner. I’m just so lost in the pages that scribbling notes doesn’t even occur to me. For the most part, I also try to write a review immediately after finishing a book. But sometimes I just don’t feel like it and I’ll pick up another book instead. I currently have three reviews to write. Did I mention I don’t have notes? Eek.
Best get to it. Books await me!
Have an absolutely fantastic week and lots of happy reading! See you next Sunday! xx
