Weekly Wrap-Up (February 3)

Hello February! So good to see you! I’m so delighted I’m welcoming you with a whole bunch of sneezing and sniffling. You’re welcome!

Nothing much else to report. This week was a much better one than last week. Staying away from social media really works. The less I know, the better. And I am now officially in “countdown to Spring” mode. Which would go a heck of a lot easier if it would stop snowing but at least the days are slowly but surely getting longer.

On to the books! What did I read?


Once again, I thought I read more than this. My wrap ups are disappointing me 😂. I know, I know, six is good, blah blah blah. I just really need to get my head down because have I mentioned February is mental on the blog? I think I have. It bears repeating.


In case you missed the news, Harlan Coben’s The Stranger is coming to Netflix, starring the hotness that is Richard Armitage, so of course I had to buy the book so I can read it before the tv adaptation airs sometime this year. Then said hotness that is Richard Armitage completely threw me off by saying he recommends you read the book beforehand but NOT the last two chapters. Say what now?! Terribly sorry, your hotness, but it’s all or nothing. 😂


One to read early and one I was convinced I wouldn’t get so I went ahead and requested it, confident that it wouldn’t mess up my shelf. Ha! Oops.


Annie Thorne! Yay! Courtesy of Michael Joseph and for the blog tour at the end of the month. I must admit I’m slightly puzzled about the other one 🤔

This isn’t so bad. I’ve got this. I think.

Fun things around the internet.

Over on Twitter, Vintage HQ is asking who you’d like to see in a remake of An Affair to Remember, which originally starred Cary Grant and Deborah Kerr. The options are Richard Armitage & Kate Winslet, Matthew Goode & Carey Mulligan or Tom Ellis & Claire Foye.

Also over on Twitter, Penguin Books UK is asking you to vote on your favourite love story.

Nominations are now open for the Annual Blogger Bash Awards so go forth and nominate your favourite book blog.

And that’s it. I have a huge pile of reviews to get through and then reading to go. Hope you’re all enjoying your weekend and I wish you a fantastic week! See you next time! Happy reading! xx

    I’m totally with you on the counting down til spring! I am also noticing the slowly increasing lighter nights. ( very slowly).
    I hadn’t heard the Harlem Coben book /series was coming to Netflix. I think I will watch the series rather than the book minus the last chapters! I wonder if it’s to keep the suspense or because they changed the end.
    Happy reading and hope springs comes fast!

      I assume there will be quite a few changes since the book is set in America but the series is filmed in England. Maybe he just think the ending is too spoiler-ish. I don’t know but knowing myself, I’ll probably just read the entire book. 😂

      Hope you’re having a great week, Amanda! xx

    Looking forward to reading your review of Dirty Little Secrets. I’m nearly halfway through at the moment and really enjoying it, I have so many questions about all the characters.

      You’ve probably finished it by now but I hope you loved it as much as I did!

    Ah I have read several books by Carol Matthews in the past, it’s a lighter read but definitely pleasant company :-). I hope you enjoy! Have a great week Eva!

      I’d never heard of her. Oops. I’m not entirely sure why this was sent to me but I’m not complaining. It’s awfully pretty 😄

    I have a high level of respect for anyone who can not only read enough to be able to post everyday but also post everyday! I did for a little bit but got so burnt out. I now post 2 days a week and it’s working so far 🙂 New WordPress follower here 🙂

      Hello, new follower Megan! Nice to meet you!

      Believe me, I know about the burn outs. I’ve been there. When that happens, I just take a step back for a bit but I can never stay away for long. I’m glad to hear that making those changes worked for you!
