Weekly Wrap-Up (July 21)

Slightly odd week. I was feeling rather overwhelmed with things again, having quite a few books to get through for the upcoming week. So naturally, the logical approach seemed to be …. the ostrich one. πŸ€”.

Instead of reading, I spent hours on YouTube watching old tennis matches. As you do. This means I of course fell behind even more and I still have two books to read for blog tours next week. Stupid girl.

And of course, I also had to keep up with social media and watch my blogger friends have an absolute blast at the Theakston Crime Festival in Harrogate this weekend. It’s not something I ever see myself attending (WAY too many people! πŸ˜‚) but that doesn’t mean I don’t get a teenie-tiny jealous every single time.

Anyway, what did I manage to read this week then?


Oh! I just surprised myself here! That’s not too bad at all! I have no idea how I did that. Maybe I’m sleep-reading πŸ€”πŸ€£

If you feel like playing the guessing game today : one of those is in my top 5 of books of the year.


I already owned Tall Oaks on Kindle so that doesn’t count, does it?


Superduper grateful and lucky blogger this week! With thanks to Headline, Atlantic / Corvus and Orenda.

Accidental double booking there. πŸ™„ Two still to read, like I mentioned at the start, and no time to read today. Argh! Things will settle down enormously after this week though. You’ll see! No, really. Stop laughing! 😜

And that’s a wrap! We have another heatwave coming our way this week. The current forecast is predicting temperatures of 39C, possibly even 40C, and boy, do I hope they’re wrong πŸ˜…. But if they’re not wrong, I predict a lot of reading and zero sleeping so there’s that.

Hope everyone has a fantastic week! See you next time! Happy reading! xx

    Glad to see your β€˜cutting back on blog tours’ is going so well πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ I’m like you regarding Harrogate would love to go but just thinking of the huge crowd gives me palpitations πŸ™ˆ

    You had great week in reading. Mine was just okay.
    We had 46C temperature this summer. Thankfully now monsoon has arrived, I feel so relieved. I really hate summer because of terrible heat.

    Five books is stupendous! I’m guessing it’s the Louise Voss…

    Hmmm, not sure about your top one this week. I’ve read Now You See Me and it certainly wouldn’t make my top reads. I enjoyed The Last Stage too and so did you, but I don’t think you raved about it. I’m going to guess at What I Did.

    I’m not looking forward to the heatwave this week at all. We’re tipped for 30 or so and that’s way too high. 40 is horrendous!!!

      I enjoyed Now You See Me but no, definitely not one to make the list. What I Did is great, but also no πŸ˜‚

      Hope you manage to stay cool!

    Five books is brilliant! I can’t wait to get a copy of The Last Stage… And I might be a little jealous of your Orenda haul. πŸ˜‰ I think I’ve been playing ostrich as well, only with the whole having to write reviews and catch up with blog comments part of blogging. xD And bad bad news that another heatwave is around the corner! 35+Β°C temperatures are the worst. Stay cool and good luck with your blog tours! xx
