Weekly Wrap-Up (November 25)

Hello, hello!

The eagle-eyed among you may have noticed that there was no wrap-up post last Sunday. There were two, in my opinion, very good reasons for that. One, I was under the weather but more importantly, I didn’t actually have anything to wrap up. No books read, no books bought, nothing from Netgalley. No, hell did not freeze over but I’m sure it came pretty close πŸ˜‰

Things went a little better this week although my reading mojo is still up and down like a bloody yo-yo. My “I must read these” list currently consists of three books due for blog tours in December. And that’s it. Why yes, I do feel rather accomplished. Thanks for asking πŸ˜‰

So, what have I read this week? Let’s take a look.

Books I read this week

Four. For me, on the slightly disappointing side. In general? Progress! I’ll take it!

Books I bought this week

Actually, books I’ve bought the past three weeks. Kind of sad. πŸ˜„

I already owned The Secret Wife on Kindle but wanted the paperback too. The Snow Girls was a bit of an accident as I didn’t realise it was the seventh or eighth book in a series. And The Other Queen is my first ever audiobook! Because … Richard Armitage. Yes, I am that shallow. No, I’m not sorry at all.

ARC’s received via Netgalley

Three for blog tours, although one of them isn’t until next year, and one because I could.

On the blog this past week

Monday : Joined the blog tour Mavis and Dot by Angela Petch

Tuesday : Hosted a stop on the blog tour for The Lingering by SJI Holliday

Wednesday : Joined the blog tour for Good Samaritans by Will Carver

Thursday : Hosted a cover reveal for The Blameless Dead by Gary Haynes

Friday : Nothing to see here

Saturday : Closed down the blog tour for And So It Begins by Rachel Abbott

Sunday : Joined the blog tour for The Merest Loss by Steven Neil and posted my Weekly Wrap-Up

Next week on Novel Deelights

Tuesday : Nada

Wednesday : This Week in Books (provided I read any πŸ˜‚)

Thursday : Nothing

Friday : Blog tour | Review | Cuckoo by Sophie Draper

Saturday : Again, nothing

Sunday : Weekly Wrap-Up  

And that’s it. These aren’t getting much more interesting, are they? πŸ˜‚

Question of the weekΒ : The new WordPress editor. Let’s discuss. I’ve been using it for a few days now and I must say it’s not as daunting as it first looked. I think I’m getting the hang of it. I’ve actually seen some of the plus points as well. Reusable blocks are the bees knees! So what do you think? Have you given it a go yet? Hate it? Love it? Let me know!

I’m off to spend the afternoon with my mother-in-law, who wants to visit a Christmas market and buy some decorations. What on earth did I do to deserve that?! 😭

Hope everyone is enjoying their weekend! Wishing you a wonderful week and lots of happy reading! xx

    Your reading / blogging life is incredible, and from the sidelines, super impressive.

    I’m halfway through Miss Marley and loving it. It’s prefect as a prequel to A Christmas Carol. I tried the new WP editor when if first came out and didn’t like it because I couldn’t work to how to do a few minor things so I’m using the old one at the moment. Hope you enjoy your first audiobook! πŸ™‚

    I want to get up-to-date with my reviews before I even think about trying out the new WordPress editor…. Yes, I’m definitely not an early adopter!

      I totally understand that. To be honest, I couldn’t figure out how to switch back to the classic one so I just stuck with it πŸ˜‰

    First ever audiobook? Hope you enjoy it! I’m definitely an audio addict 😁 I’m actually very scared of trying the new editor especially if you can’t go back, I didn’t even do the last upgrade πŸ™Š I’ll probably hang on until I have no choice…..

      You can go back for now. I’m just not entirely sure how. But I think I’ve got the hang of it now so I’ll just stick with it.

    your week looks better! mine was very tiring, my girl is keeping me awake most of the time and I’m sleeping only for 5 hrs. Reading also going slow. I’m reading only 1 book per week! I tried new WP editor but couldn’t figure out how to use it so switched to classic one and I’ll use the older one until someone is uploading a complete tutorial. πŸ˜‰

    Ooo getting into a bit of an Agatha Christie mood are we? Excellent choice! I did notice there was no wrap-up last week (I even double-checked) but I’m happy you’re finding your mojo back.. it’s not a bad week at all! I haven’t clicked on the WP editor yet which isn’t surprising, I always like things the way they are :-). I’ll wait until I’m forced to use it.. yep I’m old like that :-). Have a good week Eva!

      I do really need to read more Agatha. I’ve only ever read two which seems a huge disgrace. And those covers were just way too pretty to pass up.

    You’re entitled to a slow week. Glad you’re feeling better. I was in a total blogging rut last week. Hoping it won’t continue πŸ™„

      I am, aren’t I? It’s been one heck of a year πŸ˜‚. Hope you find a way out of your rut but if not, there’s no harm in enjoying something else. It’s the best medicine!

    What new WordPress editor? I haven’t yet moved from the ancient one to the old one, so it might be a while before I get to the new one… πŸ˜‰ Good to see some Agatha’s coming up – they’ll restore your reading mojo for sure…

      It’ll roll out soon with the new WordPress version but for the time being you should be able to use the “old” one, which I suppose is a new one to you? πŸ˜‚

      I’m very excited about Agatha. I’ve only read two by her so far and that’s just wrong. She’s definitely on my list for December!
