Weekly Wrap-Up (October 6)

I am behind on a multitude of things, including visiting your blogs, commenting, replying to comments that you’ve so kindly left on my own blog, fulfilling commitments I’ve offered to do for you and I do so apologise but life at Casa Noveldeelights is getting increasingly stressful.

Most of which, sadly, has to do with my wonderful doggie. I am still sleeping on the sofa, except at the weekend when the other half takes over. To say that I’m tired is a huge understatement. I constantly have to watch her during the day as her sight has deteriorated quite a bit and she tends to walk into the furniture. And now we have a vet appointment tomorrow because, for the first time ever, she had an epileptic fit and I don’t mind telling you that it freaked me out so much, I literally spent a good 45 minutes shaking like a bloody leaf and I’m now in a constant state of alarm, not wanting to avert my eyes from her for a single second.

All that to say, my time is really not my own lately. I am forced to do all thing bloggish from the sofa, with my laptop placed on the coffee table and it is not the most comfortable position. Mostly I guess I have chosen not to bother, even if that means missing out on sharing your fabulous blog posts or being unable to interact. Obviously, I don’t know what the future holds but I dare say that with a 15 and a half year old dog whose suddenly displaying all sorts of weird symptoms, it probably won’t be anything good and I imagine the upcoming months will bring some difficult decisions.

Thank goodness for books, eh? I don’t know what I’d do without them. Granted, I didn’t read THAT much this week but I got distracted by rewatching the tv series The Tudors, which despite two actors getting increasingly on my nerves and historical inaccuracies or typical American dramatisation, still remains a good show.

So, what did I read this past week?


Brilliant books, all three of them. I’m also halfway through The Institute by Stephen King, which I’m enjoying fiercely!


I really, really must stop buying books! Argh!


Monday : Joined the blog tour for Blood Song by Johana Gustawsson

Tuesday : September Wrap-Up

Wednesday : This Week in Books

Thursday :

Friday :

Saturday :

Sunday : Weekly Wrap-Up

Hm. I think I dreamed up a post. I could have sworn I posted on Friday. 🤔


Who knows. There will probably be a “week in books” on Wednesday but other than that, not a clue. I am really enjoying just reading without needing to worry about writing a review and I’m getting a hugely satisfying moment of glee every time I check my schedule and see it’s completely empty 😂

That’s a wrap, folks! Wishing you all a wonderful week. Until next time! xx

      Hi Eva. Sending love to you and your furry love.
      I have 2 of the books you mentioned but haven’t read either yet. I have Degrees of Guilt and Through the Wall. Both sound brilliant so I’m hoping they will be.
      Hoping you get some more sleep soon.
      Love Amanda xx

    I’m so sorry to hear Ushi is still poorly! I do know of a doggie that had a similar fit and is doing just fine now, but admittedly, he is quite a bit younger than she is 😕 I hope she pulls through and yes, thank heavens for books and TV shows, escapism is a bloody great thing when reality sucks!

    So sorry to hear about your sick dog. I’m a crazt cat lady who has lost two cats within 3 months of each other and I know what it’s like to not know how things will turn out. Praying for her recovery and yes books help. As for the Tudors, with all its faults the acting was pretty great and Jonathan Rhys Meyer is sooo cute! I’m reading an Oprah Book Club pick, The Water Dancer by Tanehisi Coates and Family of Origin by CJ Hauser. I should have already finished them but…life. Happy reading!

    Sorry to hear about your dog. It’s hard watching a loved pet going downhill. Don’t forget to take care of yourself as well as her… 🙂
