Weekly Wrap-Up (June 30)

Bye bye, June! You were really cold and then you were really hot so I forgive you for not realising Summer had already started because you sure as heck made up for it!

Obviously, because of this heat, I didn’t do anything much productive. Perfect excuse really, to just lounge around and complain to the other half because he is of course at work in air-conditioning all day. So not fair. Although I did, like a true crazy person, tackle my ironing in 32C heat. As you do. I’m hoping I lost enough calories doing that to balance out all the ice cream I’ve had this past week.

Last night, I abandoned my current book to watch two glorious hours of The Killers headlining Glastonbury. Few things make me drop a book but they will do it every single time. I was lucky enough to see them a few years ago and hope I get another chance at that some time in the future. Love them. ❀️

Anyway, books! That’s why we’re here, right? So, how did I do this week? Let’s see!


BOOM!!!! *smug face*

One somewhat disappointing, one absolutely fantastic, the others somewhere in between. Feel free to guess πŸ˜‰


It’s a good thing I read 7 books last week because I may have ordered some*. But since they haven’t arrived yet, you’ll have to wait until next week to see what they are.

*(Only 8)


One for review (which actually arrived last week but I forgot to mention it) and one for a blog tour I’m ridiculously excited about! With thanks to Quercus and Michael Joseph.


Monday : Reviewed The Flatshare by Beth O’Leary

Tuesday : Shared my review of After The End by Clare Mackintosh

Wednesday : This Week in Books (which I didn’t stick to again πŸ™„)

Thursday : Hosted a stop on the blog tour for Don’t Ever Tell by Lucy Dawson

Friday : Shared my review of The Last Widow by Karin Slaughter

Saturday : Took the day off

Sunday : Weekly Wrap-Up

Look at that! One blog tour! ONE! Quite obviously a mistake. πŸ˜‰


Monday : Review | Black Summer by M.W. Craven

Tuesday : Review | The Friend Who Lied by Rachel Amphlett

Wednesday : Blog tour | Review | The Closer I Get by Paul Burston

Thursday : Review | The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo by Taylor Jenkins Reid

Friday : Blog tour | Review | The Reunion by Guillaume Musso

Saturday : Taking the day off

Sunday : Weekly Wrap-Up

Read all of them. I feel rather accomplished. Let’s not mention the reviews, shall we? 😳 I’m hoping to do those this afternoon but I’m pretty sure my brain has melted.

Please also note there are only two blog tours. Could it possibly be I finally have that whole thing figured out? Tune in next time 🀣

And that, as they say, is a wrap! Wishing you all a wonderful week and lots of happy reading! Until next time! xx

    I’m in awe of the fact you read 7 books in one week. I’m doing well if I read 10 a MONTH! Do you have a secret you can share?
    Have a great week.

    I hope Blood & Sugar wasn’t your ‘disappointing’ one as I really enjoyed that. Well done on completing seven books though…πŸ˜€

      No, it wasn’t! Really enjoyed that one. I need more historical crime fiction in my life!

        Phew! It reminded me a lot of The Devil’s Half-Mile by Paddy Hirsch (albeit set in New York) that I’m reading the sequel to at the moment – Hudson’s Kill.

          I’ve seen you mention that one before and I was somewhat tempted but the American setting puts me off a bit. I don’t know why but I prefer my historical fiction set in England.

    I’m going for The Reunion being disappointing and Evelyn Hugo being fantastic.

      Not The Reunion. Quite enjoyable that one, actually. I was somewhat surprised as it was translated from French and that tends to go wrong for me.

    Yep, I think you loved Evelyn Hugo too. And that tiny font is fooling nobody – EIGHT!!! πŸ˜‚

    Has the temperature cool down a bit?
    We had 35C last Saturday but it lasted for only one day. Coupled with the humidity i say it was enough πŸ˜€ We went out for a lunch with the BF, and basically sweated all over their furniture. LOL.
