Weekly Wrap-Up ( June 9)

Looks like Summer pissed off again. Instead we’ve had huge thunderstorms, rain and gusts. One of my young trees toppled over and is currently quite elegantly stuck between two rubbish bins so it stays upright. Idea courtesy of the other half πŸ™„

Reading-wise, my week got off to a great start! And then my reading mojo decided to throw yet another spanner in the works, resulting in starting two books that quickly found their way back to the bookshelf. Instead, I watched some tennis and did a whole lot of absolutely nothing.

However, I did manage to read more than 3 books this week so that’s progress! And I would have finished another one yesterday if a certain buddy reader would have stopped procrastinating πŸ˜‰πŸ˜‚


I’m switching back and forth between blog tour books and books from my 20 Books of Summer list and so far, it’s working like a charm. Fingers crossed I can keep this up! Reviews for three of those will be up on the blog this week.


This pre-order arrived at the start of the week so naturally I dropped everything and read it straight away. I mean, come on! It’s Stuart MacBride!


A giveaway win, two for a blog tour and one that might be for a tour? I’m not exactly sure. πŸ˜‚ With thanks to Transworld, Orenda, Penguin and Jo!

Oooh. Could this be the start of a busy summer?

Question of the week : How far ahead do you start planning your holiday reads? How do you decide which books to shove into your suitcase? Are there books you deliberately keep aside for when you’re on holiday?

That’s a wrap! Have a fabulous week and I’ll see you next time! Happy reading! xx

    I don’t decide my holiday books until just before I go. I like to keep my options open.

    I like to try to read at least one book set in the country I’m going to. Other than that it’s just choosing from the multitude of titles on my Kindle.

    We’ve been having rain too, but with that stupid heat staying, it’s useless!
    I take my Kindle on holiday so I have loads of things to choose from, and I usually pick a paperback among the TBR according to my mood, or I choose a book at the airport!

    That’s right, publicly blame the buddy reader πŸ™„πŸ€£

    Can’t wait to see your review on A Modern Family! I usually only take my kindle with me on vacation, both because I don’t want to damage my physical books and because I want to have more room for newly bought books when I return home. πŸ˜‰ Have a wonderful week! xx

        True that, although you might find an English bookshop some where? Always best to reserve some space just to be safe. πŸ˜‰

    Summer has been perfect so far! Rain every day means no reasonable person could expect me to cut my grass. By Wimbledon it should be so high, you could hide a Rafa in it…
