HOW IS IT SEPTEMBER???????
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?
| BOOKS I READ 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!
| BOOKS I BOUGHT THIS WEEK |
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. 😳
| ON THE BLOG THIS PAST WEEK |

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
Enjoy your break of whatever kind.
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!
🤞🏼Fingers crossed for good news at the vets…and also the weather forecast for next week 🤞🏼
Hope you have good news at the vet tomorrow, it must be so worrying. Hope we’ll catch up online before you go off to Italy and fingers crossed that the weather is gorgeous for you xx
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. 😀
I hope she’ll be ok and it won’t be too bad. I’ll be thinking of you tomorrow! Have a great holiday already!!
I hope your doggie feels better soon and that it won’t be too bad! Yay for vacation being almost there… I love Italy. I should probably try to follow your lead if I ever want to take a real break from my blog haha. xx
Sending hugs to the doggie ❤ The weather is atrocious. Too hot, then super cold, then hey, here's another heatwave! … Social media breaks are great for the mind! Have a lovely week xxx
ah, sorry the doggy is not feeling well. how old? ours is 13 and seems under the weather today as well. as with you, we get concerned whenever her habits change.
