It feels like Summer and I’m loving every single second of it! Gorgeous blue skies, glorious sunshine, weeds popping up all over the place and hay fever kicking my arse. Okay, wait, those last two aren’t fun but we’ll take the good with the bad and enjoy it while it lasts.
Of the bad, all that sunshine made me realise how dirty my windows were, mostly due to an inconsiderate other half. So of course I had to clean them. Again! I swear my house would be so much cleaner if I were single 😂
Reading-wise. Hoo boy! What a week it’s been! Let’s have a look at what I read.
| BOOKS I READ THIS WEEK |
Best week EVER! There are four 5 star reads on that list! The books I’ll be reading next week have a lot to live up to!
I’m not even worried about “only” reading 6 books because the books in that C.J. Sansom series are just getting bigger and bigger. 650 pages, devoured in less than two days. If you love crime fiction and historical fiction and the Tudor era, this series NEEDS to be on your shelf! SO GOOD!
| BOOKS I BOUGHT THIS WEEK |
Nada! Zip! My other half is pleased. Little does he know I fully intend to catch up at some point 😉
| BOOK POST THAT LANDED ON MY DOORSTEP THIS WEEK |
Just the one but what a corker it is. Enormously pleased.

So much for slowing down, huh? Have to say though, I do so love being this busy. And I’m even ahead of schedule. I have one review left to write for this upcoming week but as far as reading the books is concerned, I’m reading for May. I feel quite accomplished. 😊
Question of the week. Which I totally stole from the lovely Kate at Portable Magic. If you have blog tours scheduled, do you ever read out of order?
Take me for instance and the books I read this past week. First I read one for a blog tour on May 27th, then I read one due May 2nd, to be followed by one due May 13th. One isn’t even for a blog tour at all (hello, Sovereign!). All the while I seem to be skipping over the one that’s due May 1st. 😂
Is that something you do as well? Or do you stick to your schedule and just basically try not to panic?
Friendly reminder that voting is still open for the Annual Bloggers Bash Awards
Feel free to ignore the other 64 names on the list and vote for me (Novel Deelights, in case you wondered) 😂
That’s it for another week. I have a few reviews to tackle before my mother-in-law arrives for a fun afternoon of board games, sunshine and stuffing our faces full of chocolate. Or ice cream. Or hell, both! Diet? What diet?
Hope everyone has a fabulous week! Until next time! Happy reading! xx
