Weekly Wrap-Up (January 12)

Oh, January. Why are you so dreary, miserable and long?! Although, has anyone seen Winter? It feels as if we’re stuck in a never-ending Autumn and as much as I hate the cold that Winter brings, I kind of miss it.

Anyway, I thought I had been hugely productive this past week but looking back as I write this wrap-up, it turns out I wasn’t. But at least I’m still reading! Let’s just not talk about the pile of reviews that keeps stacking up.

| BOOKS I READ THIS WEEK |

I know, I know, six isn’t bad at all but I honestly thought I’d read more than that. At least I finished my first ever audiobook! Go me! 🀣

| BOOKS I BOUGHT THIS WEEK |

Book buying mojo still working like a charm! I may also have somewhere in the region of 14 pre-orders but who’s counting?

| ARC’s RECEIVED VIA NETGALLEY |

One for a blog tour, one I was invited to read and one because it was a “read now”. Sometimes it’s as simple as that.

| ON THE BLOG THIS PAST WEEK |

Monday : Nada

Tuesday : Joined the blog tour For The Missing by Lina Bengtsdotter

Wednesday : Hosted a stop on the blog tour for The Man With No Face by Peter May and shared my Week in Books

Thursday : Joined the blog tour for Tell Me A Secret by Jane Fallon and re-shared my review for Too Close to Breathe by Olivia Kiernan for paperback publication day.

Friday : Author Sibel Hodge visited my blog on the blog tour for The Disappeared to talk about her writing day.

Saturday : I had a day off.

Sunday : Weekly Wrap-Up

| NEXT WEEK ON NOVEL DEELIGHTS |

Monday : Blog tour | Extract | The Liar’s Girl by Catherine Ryan Howard

Tuesday : Blog tour | Review | Changeling by Matt Wesolowski

Wednesday : Blog tour | Review | Only A Mother by Elizabeth Carpenter

Thursday : Blog tour | Review | Red Snow by Will Dean

Friday : Blog tour | Review | Deep Dirty Truth by Steph Broadribb

Saturday : Day off

Sunday : Weekly Wrap-Up

Hm. The talk I had with myself regarding blog tours was obviously hugely successful πŸ™„

Right, I get to spend a wonderful (note the sarcasm) afternoon with the mother-in-law. Somehow that still sounds more pleasant than writing reviews though. πŸ€”

Hope everyone is having a lovely weekend! Have a fabulous week and I wish you lots of happy reading! Until next time! xx

    I feel the same this January – still feels like autumn and the autumn storms are happening now rather than in actual autumn it seems. Sigh… I really don’t like wet dreary weather!

      Yes, that’s what’s been happening here as well. I hope the weather changes for the better for you soon!

      It’s stunning, isn’t it? That’s why I bought it. My review copy wasn’t nearly as pretty πŸ˜‚

    Which audiobook did you listen to? Must be a special novel :-). The Girl Who Was Taken is on my readlist too.. I have high hopes we’ll both going to like this one very much! Oh and I wish we could feel spring already.. the cold is seeping through my pants every single morning and I hate it!

      It was The Snowman. Cute children’s Christmas story. I quite enjoyed it.

      Yes for Spring! Although I fear it will get colder before that first.

    I really liked The Girl Who Was Taken and Donlea has moved to favorite status. Definitely want to get to UNSUB. Your others look equally interesting.

    I always love checking out your picks Eva! I also read Silent Patient (a 5 for me) but I had to give Verity a 2 (didn’t work obviously) Its dreary here to, but at least we have our books! ❀
