Once upon a time, there was the first week of October in the year 2018. And then it was gone. If you blinked, you missed it. Poof.
What I didn’t miss, however, are signs that Autumn has arrived. Although we had some glorious blue skies and lovely sunshine. Still, meh. I’m missing Summer already.
Anyway, boring. Things are returning to normal at Casa Eva so let’s see how many books I’ve managed to read this week.
Books I’ve read this week
Seven isn’t too bad and I’ve managed to get a bit more ahead of schedule. Which means today I’m treating myself to something from my own TBR for a change. Woohoo!
Books I’ve bought this week
Okay, so, well. I wasn’t doing too shabbily, actually. I had Graham Norton and W.C. Ryan on pre-order and was determined that that would be it. But then, a certain someone who shall remain nameless, mentioned the Sharkland series.
Now, we all know I need a new series like a hole in the tooth.
So obviously, I bought the whole thing in one go. As you do.

Question of the week : Chapter lengths. How important are they to you? I find the length of a chapter can really influence the pace of a story. And of course, shorter chapters lend themselves far more easily to the whole “one more chapter” thing. I’m sure we’re all familiar with that. Does it depend on the genre? For instance, does a psychological thriller benefit from shorter and punchy chapters, while historical fiction allows you to get immersed more if the chapters are longer? Thoughts? Do share!
And that’s a wrap. If anyone needs me, I’ll be on my sofa with a blanket, a nice cuppa and a great book.
Have a great week and lots of happy reading! xx
