Hello! Hoppy Saturday to you all! Bunny and I managed to get in the garden for a little while this morning to start some bulb planting! Why does he never dig holes when I need him to?! Peeing down with rain out there now though so safely snuggled on the sofa to share my bookish week with you all!
Hope yours has been a good week?! Quite restrained here on the reading and hauling front! Managed to finish 4 lovely books this week, 3 books made new homes with me and just 1 newbie from NetGalley! I’m rather proud of myself haha! Ooh and GoodReads informed me this week that I’ve read 200 books so far in 2018! I was a little shocked but very happy! And even with reading that amount you’d think my bookshelves would be emptying out a little….. wrong! oops!
Here’s a look back on my week – click on the title for a link to the GoodReads pages!
Melmoth by Sarah Perry – 5 stars
Loved it!! As soon as my signed copy arrived from Waterstones I just had to read it and didn’t put it down until I’d finished!
The Paris Secret by Lily Graham – 4 stars
a fabulous read full of history, secrets and romance
The Light in the Dark by Horatio Clare – 4 stars
A fascinating look at winter and how it affected the author. Beautifully written. Will be reviewing in full on the Blog Tour at the end of the month!
The Christmas reading has begun!! And this was a sweet romance to start it off for me!
The Shape of Us by Drew Davies – netgalley/bookouture
In a city of 8.8 million people, you’d be surprised. Surprised at how many times your path crosses with that stranger you spotted on the other side of the street. Surprised at how lonely living in a busy city can feel. Surprised that falling in love – against all the odds – is just about possible.
One day in London…
Daisy is rushing to work when a stranger on a bicycle almost knocks her over – and then asks for her number.
JoJo, a wife in her sixties, is trying desperately to win her beloved husband back from his mistress.
Adam has recently lost his job and lies to his housemate about where he goes every day.
Dylan, a teenage boy, lives with an illness which means he can’t leave his bedroom – but which hasn’t stopped him falling in love.
These four total strangers – whose paths cross in the charming and crazy city of London – have one thing in common. They’re all looking for love and they’re totally hopeless at it. But that’s about to change.
Frogkisser by Garth Nix – spotted this in the library sale for 50p!
Something of his Art by Horatio Clare
Very grateful to Little Toller for sending me this copy to review.
What has been filling your reading time up this week? The perfect weather for reading now this afternoon so I’m off to get a few more pages read!
