What a miserable week it’s been. Storms raging all over the place bringing lots of high winds, hail and rain. At one point it looked like my garden pond may have flooded but that potential crisis was luckily avoided. I wasn’t quite looking forward to searching for fish in the grass. As it is, we had one casualty. Not a fish but my pretty bird bath, which toppled over and broke in two pieces. RIP bird bath. You will be missed.
Reading-wise, things are going pretty well. I probably could have squeezed in one more book if I hadn’t spent a few hours rearranging my bookshelves. Under duress, I might add. 😜. Now I can’t find anything. It’s all very fine to sort books alphabetically by author but when the only thing you remember is a title, …. 🙄😂
Anyway, let’s see which books went from the TBR shelf (downstairs) to the “read” shelf (upstairs) this week.
| BOOKS I READ THIS WEEK |
Sadly, The Dollmaker was another DNF at 72%. Netgalley has been letting me down lately. It’s probably not a bad thing I won’t be using it anymore soon due to my struggles with reading on a kindle. 😂
| BOOKS I BOUGHT THIS WEEK |
Oops. But! 🤣 Lizzie Borden was a preorder that arrived this week. And I already owned the Jo Spain books on Kindle so they don’t count, right? 😳
| ARC’s RECEIVED VIA NETGALLEY |
Nothing! I thought it would be hard to stay away from there but so far, it’s actually been a breeze.
| BOOK POST THAT LANDED ON MY DOORSTEP THIS WEEK |
Also, nothing. But I am expecting at least one goodie next week so it’s all good!

Another relatively quiet one. I could get used to this.
That’s it for another week. I have the whole day to myself and a pile of reviews to tackle. If I can stop procrastinating for long enough, I may even be able to finish my current book. Which, in case you wondered, is The Night Olivia Fell and it’s so good!
Wishing you all a fabulous week. Until next time! Happy reading! xx
