Weekly Wrap-Up (September 2)


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. 😉

Bookpost that landed on my doorstep this past week

Happy and extremely lucky blogger 😊

With thanks to Orion and Quercus!

On the blog this past week

Monday : Hosted a stop on the blog tour for Before Her Eyes by Jack Jordan

Tuesday : Shared my review for The Darkness Around Her by Neil White

Wednesday : Joined the blog tour for The Other Couple by Sarah J. Naughton and posted My Week in Books

Thursday : Hosted a stop on the blog blitz for The Third Breath by Malcolm Hollingdrake

Friday : My turn on the blog tour for Truth and Lies by Caroline Mitchell

Saturday : I joined the blog tour for Daisy Belle with a guest post by Caitlin Davies

Sunday : Weekly Wrap-Up

Next week on Novel Deelights

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

          😂 Nothing! I’m sure she’s lovely but there are so many other books and apparently I can’t take them all with me 🙄

            Hmm, I’m not happy, not happy at all about you constantly side-lining Eleanor! She’s a bit of an awkward characters so you’ll find you have a lot in common with her 😜
