I think this is the first time this week that I have surfaced to actually do something for me by writing this blog post. I literally have not looked up from uni work all week. While I have achieved, I’ve also been really bad at remembering to take breaks and have pretty much landed myself with a headache every day this week – oops. I’ll try and be better next week.
I’ve had a shift change at work, which means I now work 7-10.15 on a Sunday rather than 11-2.15. I have no qualms about getting up early, and it means that I have had the rest of the day back to myself! This has involved doing uni work and cleaning, but at least I feel like I’ve achieved. It’s amazing how much of the day a three-hour shift can take up!
I’ve been really lucky with book post this week, thanks to Becky Hunter at Transworld Books. I’ve got the beautiful The Things We Thought We Knew by Mahsuda Snaith to review and I am in love with the cover! I think this book might turn me into an emotional wreck, mind you!
I’ve also got the next Shari Lapena book, A Stranger in the House. I really enjoyed The Couple Next Door – and clearly you guys enjoyed my review, as it is the most read post on here by a long-shot. I’m really looking forward to her second book – fingers crossed that it is just as good.
So, talking of books and reviews, has anyone else lived in a bubble this week and missed everything that has been going on here? Never fear! Here are the posts you might have missed this week:
- Monday: Book Review: The Idea of You by Amanda Prowse
- Wednesday: Up and Coming: May’s Posts
- Friday: Film Review: Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children
Mixed thoughts from me this week – the good, the bad and who knows, maybe there was an ugly thrown in there as well just for a full house!
I think I am banning myself from Netgalley and Bookbub for a while. I think I got about ten books last week, plus I already have three on reserve at the library! Oops. Nothing like a load of things to read to give me motivation. The trouble is, between ARCs and blog tours, I’m filling my review slots pretty quick – and am not entirely sure that I am choosing what to read!
But anyway, what have I got coming up next week?
- Monday: Book Review: The Circuit by Rhett C. Bruno
- Wednesday: 5 Book’s I’m Excited About
- Friday: Film Review: The Legend of Tarzan
I’m hoping there might be an extra review slipped in there this week, but we shall have to see whether I get the time to finish off.
So, I think that is all for this week. It’s been hectic, it’s been stressful and there hasn’t been as much reading as I hoped. But things will ease off after this week.
How is everyone else? What are you reading at the moment?
