So, December. Ugh. I have no idea where the rest of the year has gone. I feel like I just sat through all that Christmas malarkey last week and now the season to be jolly is upon us once again. Bah humbug!
I set out with good intentions this week. I had plans. Plans that involved finishing my blog tour reads for the year and getting a head start on the ones for January. By Tuesday, I had read two books and felt incredibly accomplished. And then …. someone (okay, me, obviously) fell into the black hole that is Netflix and I haven’t found my way out just yet. I’ve been binge-watching Hannibal and have come to the conclusion that there is a huge difference between reading and imagining gore/gruesomeness and actually seeing it play out on a big screen in front of you. But I’m enjoying it immensely. In between gagging bouts and watching from behind my fingers. 😂
Needless to say, the list of books read this week is short. At least it’s not zero, though.
Books I read this week
Two. I hardly recognise myself these last few weeks. Months? The force of the slacking off is massive.
Books I bought this week
One. And it’s a pre-order. It won’t even be published until February. I’m beginning to worry about myself.
ARC’s received via Netgalley
Peter May and Jane Harper are for January blog tours. The other one just sounded good. 😄
Bookpost that landed on my doorstep
I’ve been horribly remiss in taking pictures again lately. These two are also for blog tours, with thanks to Michael Joseph and Avon.

In other news, I managed to get my hands on the 200 reviews badge on Netgalley, which was one of my goals this year so despite my other goal of cutting down on blog tours being a massive fail (🙄), I still feel rather accomplished.
Right, I’ll be spending the next few hours trying to compile my list of books of 2018. Wish me luck!
And that’s it for another week. Next week’s wrap-up may either be delayed or not show up at all. I have a huge 50th birthday party to attend on Saturday evening and I have no idea at what time I’ll be home or what condition I’ll be in 😂
Wishing you all a fabulous week and lots of happy reading! xx
