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?
| BOOKS I READ THIS WEEK |
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.
| BOOKS I BOUGHT THIS WEEK |
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. 😂
| ARC’s RECEIVED VIA NETGALLEY |
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.
| BOOK POST THAT LANDED ON MY DOORSTEP THIS WEEK |
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
