Weekly Wrap-Up (March 2)

Hello, March! It’s good to see you! Although why you had to announce your arrival with dark, wet and miserable weather is a mystery to me. Still, we’re another step closer to Summer so I’m not complaining. Much.

I am horribly sleep deprived. The most sleep I had in one night was about 5 hours and it wasn’t even in one go. That said, I have been oddly productive as evidenced by the fact I tackled my pile of ironing at 8 o’clock in the morning. Totally scared myself there. Self and I had a good long talk and agreed this can never happen again.

Reading-wise, I was able to squeeze in a few new releases as a treat to myself. So, what did I read this week? Let’s see.


Not as impressive as it looks since Looker is only 180 pages long. But! I do have a few other things still on the go that I wasn’t able to finish this week (one of which is almost 500 pages) so you know, it’s okay. I’ll take it.


Just two. Which according to the OH is still too much. Huh? Does not compute.


Apparently After She’s Gone is the second in a series, which I wasn’t told when I was invited to read it. πŸ™„ Run Away, well, I don’t quite remember requesting that one. Immense lack of sleep will do that to a person. But I’m thrilled I got it!


Another good week at Casa Novel Deelights. Huge thanks to Penguin, Headline, Agora, Avon and Ebury!

Well, would you look at that! Not a single review blog tour! I know, you’re impressed, aren’t you? πŸ˜‚

Now, I do remember saying that March was going to be slow. Famous last words. Some last minute additions and a glance at Netgalley publication dates and well, let’s just say there is no Hobbit trilogy binge-watch in my near future. But that’s okay! I have it all under control! Really! Where’s the wine?

Right, that’s it! My Sunday afternoon shall be spent writing some reviews and reading up a storm! Hope you’re having a lovely weekend, however you’re spending it. Have a great week! Until next time. Happy reading! xx

    I managed to finish Now You See Her yesterday and wrote a draft this morning so I’m totally zen now 😁

        It’s a good thing you thrive under pressure then πŸ˜‚ I finalised and scheduled mine yesterday. I may very well be the most organised person you know… Or the most uptight one, that’s also a distinct possibility πŸ˜…

          Considering I’m the least organised person on the planet, I’m mightily impressed πŸ˜‚

      I do love Kristin Hannah so I feel quite confident I will. You know, when I get around to it. In 2025. Or thereabouts πŸ˜‚

        Well, yes when you get round to it, of course πŸ˜‚ I often think I’d love to go and be a hermit for a few months with a pile of books.

    Lots more lovely sounding books.
    I see, no ‘ review’ blog tours, but blog tours are ok. Well that’s ok then. It does give you more time to review the books you chose to read instead.
    Happy reading and I hope March is a good month for you…. and that we both get some better weather soon.

      Yes, exactly! Sometimes I do want to help out but don’t have time to read the book and like you say, it gives me time to catch up on other commitments. Which despite my good intentions are piling up again. 😳

      Happy reading, Amanda! xx

    Couple there I am going to have to buy. Ironing… I can’t abide it, no sooner finished and there’s more again 😨
    Hope you manage to get some proper sleep xx

    Interesting book choices there. Other than lack of sleep how on earth do you read so much? It’s amazing xx

      The lack of sleep is a big part of it πŸ˜‚. Other than that, I don’t watch TV and my house is a mess, so there’s that. 😳

    Great post!

    I agree, so over the winter weather already too, LoL.

    I haven’t read any of the books you mentioned. Although, I did manage to finish reading one book in February, Love, Simon. It was so good!

    Envy looks so good and librarian of Auschwitz is bound to be heartbreaking, the title reminds me of The Tattooist. I hope that you will enjoy all these books. Have a fab week. Happy reading.

      I already have the tissues ready for The Librarian. Like you, I think that might be quite an emotional one.

      Hope you’re having a wonderful week, Diana! xx
