Well, hello September. I can’t quite believe you are here already. Are you sure you didn’t jump the queue and shove a few other months out of the way? No? Okay then. Now, you know I love and hate you in equal measure. Of the good, there is my holiday to look forward to. Of the bad, I’ll be older. Birthdays too seem to be coming faster and faster. Anyway, if you could provide me with some more sunshine and warm temperatures, that’d be brilliant. Also, a shiny new pair of boots, if you don’t mind. And keep that white wine coming! 😉
In case you hadn’t noticed, I’ve been trying to stay away from social media this week as I wanted to get all of my September reads out of the way before I leave on holiday, in the vain hope it’ll give me the opportunity to read for pleasure as I’ve quite forgotten what that feels like 😂. I’ve been reading up a storm this week and feel rather accomplished.
Books I’ve read this week
I’ll take that! I’m also close to finishing Resin by Ane Riel, which I had hoped to add to this list but there was a music festival here yesterday and we sat in our garden, listening to the music until midnight so I wasn’t able to finish it. Anyway, 7 isn’t bad.
Books I’ve bought this week
One last blow-out before I go on holiday. #notsorry 😊

Not for blog tours, for once. I know, I scared myself there as well. 😉

Happy and extremely lucky blogger 😊
With thanks to Orion and Quercus!

Bet you thought I’d take it slow during my last week before my holidays, huh? Ha! 😂
Monday : Review | Perfect Liars by Rebecca Reid
Tuesday : Blog tour | Extract | The Spy’s Gamble by Howard Kaplan
Wednesday : Review | The Night She Died by Jenny Blackhurst
Thursday : Blog tour | Review | The Angel’s Mark by S.W. Perry
Friday : Review | The Rival by Charlotte Duckworth
Saturday : Nothing as I’ll be in a car en route to Italy, desperately wanting the journey to be over because good grief, 1400km is just a bit too much to do in one go and my arse will hurt and I’ll be a bit cranky and in need of a shower, decent food and wine. And possibly a nana nap.
Sunday : Also nada as I’ll hopefully be lounging by the pool, reading in the sunshine and getting a bit of a tan. Although the weather forecast says thunderstorms so maybe not 🙄
And that’s it. Kind of. Because by now I’m sure you all know me well enough and so it won’t come as too big of a surprise to learn that I signed up for two blog tours that fall smack-bang in the middle of my holiday 🙈. They are for Leave No Trace by Mindy Mejia on the 11th and Perfect Silence by Helen Fields on the 13th. Come on, be honest, you wouldn’t have passed these up either, would you?
I may post a random review while I’m away but I don’t have a set schedule or anything and if I don’t post, I’ll be totally okay with that. We shall see. I’ve actually still not decided on the books I’m taking with me. So stressful 😂
The Weekly Wrap-Up will return on September 30th. But you will see me back before that as I’ll be on the blog tours for The Lion Tamer Who Lost by Louise Beech on the 25th and After He Died by Michael J. Malone on the 26th. No rest for the wicked 😉
That’s a wrap! I’m off to do a wee spot of gardening (bloody weeds just keep on coming, don’t they? 🙄) and the afternoon will be spent surrounded by books, trying to figure out what to take with me. Life is good.
Hope you all have the most fantastic week! Until next time! Happy reading! xx
