I can’t quite believe I’ve been home for a full week already. Tuscany was glorious and warm as always and I had a wonderful time.
Except for the tiger mosquito plague. I’m not entirely sure why mosquitoes love me as much as they do but I wish they didn’t. I stopped counting at thirty bites and ended up coming home looking like someone suffering from the plague. I had one massive bite on a little toe that sadly meant I was unable to fit into any type of shoe for the first few days.
Now you’d think that being unable to go anywhere meant I was reading up a storm instead on my comfy lounger by the pool. But no. I read a measly two books on holiday. Two! That’s completely unheard of. Even worse, I didn’t miss it. Not for a second. Which, considering I had three tour commitments to fulfil upon my return, meant that I had lost all my carefully collected Zen by Tuesday 😂. (and a nagging husband who couldn’t help but rub in how many books I took with me but never even touched)
This weekly wrap-up is also a monthly wrap-up. So let’s see how hugely unsuccessful my reading was in September.
Books I read this month
That’s right. Count them. I’ll help. It’s nine. 9!!!! In a whole bloody month! Four and a half of those I read this past week in a desperate attempt to catch up. So wrong.
Books I’ve bought this month
Filling a few gaps in my Orenda collection and I couldn’t resist Harriet Monckton.

Plus one I’m not allowed to talk about yet 😊
Bookpost that landed on my doorstep this past month
I could have sworn I’d taken pictures of these but I can’t find them anywhere so the covers will have to do for now. With thanks to Dome Press (for None So Blind by Alis Hawkins, which isn’t pictured), Transworld, Michael Joseph and Killer Reads.

And that’s it! I haven’t checked out any of your blogs because the mere thought is just too overwhelming to contemplate. But do please feel free to point me in the right direction if there’s anything you really want me to see!
I’m spending the afternoon with my dad, who by now has probably forgotten what I look like because it’s been a while. Hope whatever it is you have planned for today is wonderful and you’re enjoying your weekend.
Wishing you lots of happy reading. Until next time! xx
