Hello and welcome to the first weekly wrap-up of the shiny new year. First, let me wish you all an incredibly fabulous 2019! May you all be surrounded by love, friendship and books! And wine. Just me? Okay.
Hold on to your seats because yes, I have actually been reading! Not a lot over the holidays though. I spent almost two weeks on what’s basically a novella and I admit, I was getting slightly worried there. But things seem to be on the up this week. Now if only my reviewing mojo would cooperate, I’d be golden!
| BOOKS I READ THIS WEEK |
Hm. Not exactly impressive but I’ll take it! I say that because two of those are so short, they should have been a breeze. And for the curious amongst you, it was Miss Marley that took me so long to finish. Not because it was bad. I just kept getting distracted by other things that seemed much more fun at the time.
| BOOKS I BOUGHT THIS WEEK |
Book buying mojo INTACT! 😂
Two of those are pre-orders : The Hunting Party and After The End. The Jane Austen is a Knickerbocker Classics set and I’m totally in love with it. I bought the Charles Dickens one last year as well. Some I was told to get by my very own evil enabler and finally, The Snowman is a …. wait for it … audiobook. For entirely obvious and shallow reasons, as it’s narrated by Richard Armitage. 😍
| ARC’s RECEIVED VIA NETGALLEY |
None. My requests keep getting denied. Why do they hate me?! 🤣
No book post either so let’s quickly move on!

Good thing I’ve managed to sign up for less blog tours, eh? 🙄😂
And that’s it for the first week of January. I have a New Year’s dinner to attend later on that I’m not looking forward to at all. But there will be wine, so there’s that. Fair warning (and apologies in advance) to those I send messages to when I get bored. 😉😂
Alright, 2019! Let’s do this! See you all next week! Happy reading! xx
