Happy Friday to you all! We made it through another week!! And just about made it through here as insomnia has struck me again – bleurgh. I seem to build up an immunity to all the pills and potions I try from the various chemists and health shops I visit, so this week has been a struggle! It could all be related to the full moon too though as I’ve been reading that it often affects the sleep patterns of some people – anyone else suffer?! Any miracle cures?! Tempted to try a hammer to the head tonight and see if that knocks me out… will keep you posted on the success rate 😉
But on the positive side of things, insomnia does mean extra time for reading – ooh i wonder if too much reading could be an insomnia factor?! eek!!! 😒 – so I’ve managed to get another 5 books off the TBR pile!! Always a good feeling to find time to read a number of books and it’s been a pretty positive reading experience as well! No book stinkers to report thankfully!! So here’s a little look at what I’ve read, what book post I’ve got, and what I’m now currently reading!! Are you ready?! Click on the titles for a link to my GoodReads reviews and all the blurby stuff!!
Jamaica Inn by Daphne Du Maurier – 3 stars
Deadly Intent by Sheryl Browne – 5 stars
Little bit of everything I think for me reading wise this week!! Just the way I like it!! No wonder my poor brain cells (if i have any left!) can’t switch off at night!!
BOOK POST / CURRENTLY READING
Oooh and this week the books I received are the books that I’ve dived right into and are currently keeping me company so here’s a little look at what they are!
Yep! I’ve gone all high brow!! But just for September!! To be honest I’d never heard of this book or author ( shame on me!!!) before I was watching BookTube and saw the lovely Adam at memento mori Youtube and for this year he’s hosting a read-a-long for September or #Decomorama as it is known on Twitter and Instagram, for those of you who want in on the fun! It’s a chunkster of a book and I don’t know why it grabbed my attention to join in, but I’ve been pleasantly surprised so far at how relevant some of the stories are even now considering it was written in the wake of the Black Death! My eyes have been opened to new reading experiences, and surely that is what we all love as readers!!

Was lucky enough to get this in the post on Thursday morning, thanks to the publishers Allison & Busby. I’ve had ‘Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet’ on my bookshelves from this author for what seems like forever now, and it’s always been one of those books I want to get to, but never have. But having started reading this already I definitely will be bumping ‘Hotel’ up the TBR pile as I’m finding the way the author tells a story utterly captivating, and I’m hoping to finish this very soon as I’m racing through it!
So there we have it! All up to date and hopefully a few different books for you to consider adding to your shelves! Hope you’ve all had a productive week – any books I need to add to my reading pile?! Look forward to some good recommendations!
