Weekly Wrap-Up (September 1)


The third heatwave of the year hit our shores this past week and while I absolutely love sunshine and heat, I reached a point where I’d just had enough. I assume that’s mostly due to the immense sleep deprivation that is haunting me because the dog will still not sleep where she’s been sleeping for the past 11 years. So I’ve been grabbing an hour here and thirty minutes there on the sofa while she’s snoring and dreaming up a storm right next to me. I had hoped the cooler temperatures would change that but sadly not and we are now left to think there is something else going on and unfortunately that can never be good news. We will see tomorrow what the vet says.

The other half’s annual vacation starts today so we have officially kicked off our Italy countdown. This time next week, …. erm, well, it looks like I might be stuck indoors with a book because the weather forecast is absolutely atrocious. My current holiday TBR pile stands at 8. I hope that’ll be enough. There are some chunky ones in there, like three books in the Shardlake series I still have to read.

Reading-wise, things are going fabulously! Reviewing however, is another matter. It seems to be in holiday mode already. I have one review left to write for my 20 Books of Summer Challenge, which is of course great. But I actually could have been finished last week because I’ve read more than 20. I just couldn’t be bothered to review them 🤣

So, which books made it off the shelves this week?


Still feeling rather accomplished about finishing a non-fiction book for the first time ever. It’s been a great reading week, for sure!


Oops. I think I might need to start applying reverse psychology on myself because the whole “I’m not buying anymore books” thing is obviously not working. 😳


Monday : Joined the blog tour for Dead Inside by Noelle Holten

Tuesday : nothingnesses

Wednesday : Shared my review for The Trial of Lizzie Borden by Cara Robertson

Thursday : also nothing

Friday : nothing to see here either

Saturday : Reviewed Rewind by Catherine Ryan Howard

Sunday : Weekly Wrap-Up

The fruits of my conscious effort to slow down are most definitely starting to pay off 😂


Monday : Review | Little Darlings by Melanie Golding

Tuesday : Probably nothing

Wednesday : This Week in Books

Thursday : Nothing

Friday : Also nothing

Saturday : Most definitely nothing

Sunday : Nada, zilch

I don’t know about you but I’m awfully excited about next week’s posts 😂

My Weekly Wrap-Up will return at the end of the month, which shall then be called the Monthly Wrap-Up. Hopefully I’ll have something to say about books because that didn’t go so well last year. I read 2 books on holiday, the lowest amount ever. Still don’t get how that happened.

And that’s a wrap! I’ll still be around until Friday but after that, I’m considering a total social media break and my blog will most likely gather dust. I may even leave the laptop at home. Oooh, controversial decision! 🤣

Wishing you all a fabulous week and lots of happy reading! Until next time! xx

    I hope Ushi is okay!! A lot can happen in a week weather-wise so I’m still convinced the weather will be more Italian by the time you get there 😊 Whatever the weather is like, I hope you have a great time!

    Furious hours is fab – hope you enjoy it! Haha – can’t believe you’re lugging three Shardlakes on holiday with you – I hope you’ve been doing weight training exercises! Have a great time. 😀
