It’s Monday . . .

It's Monday What Are You Reading?

This meme is hosted by Sheila over at Book Journey. I haven’t participated in a while so thought it was about time that I got back into the game. My reading schedule is not particularly exciting if I am honest but I am really enjoying the book that I am currently reading and have been reading for a while now!

Life

Things have been non stop since my return to the real world from my wonderful travels. There were ups and downs but the majority of the trip was pure bliss. Massages, alcohol, sun, sea and much to my detriment a lot of sand :(. However all good things must come to an end and boy oh boy was it an abrupt one.

After five lovely weeks away I came back to one day off followed by four night shifts. Now I am not complaining as such as I have been away for FIVE weeks but I honestly could do with another holiday all together! Things are gearing up for Christmas here and my work schedule is pretty tight so not much room for extra shifts for Christmas money sadly!

Ah well! Better knuckle down and read some more!

Currently Reading

a clash of kings

I am currently reading the book and watching the TV series. I am trying very hard not to watch ahead as it is nice to build up in my imagination how I think events will unfold and then watch them translate onto screen. So far so good on both counts!

Planning to read . . .

Christmas @ Rosie Hopkin's Sweetshop

I received an email whilst I was away about this book being in the mail – I think I might have to ask my postman if the book is good! Looking forward to getting a copy soon – I hope!

No reviews written this week as I am still trying to put into words how I feel about the first book in the Song of Ice & Fire set.

Review for Billy & Me (Very late I know!) will be posted soon.

its monday already

  • Oh the Colgan book looks like the perfect Christmas read!

    • Fay

      I know!! I really hope I get it soon πŸ™‚

  • Reviewing Martin can be hard. I just did book three and my write-up was pretty much: “Stuff happened. I can’t tell you about most of it…” Christmas at Rosie Hopkins’ Sweet Shop looks fun. Hop the post office gets it to you soon!

      I have to say I can’t wait to finish book two so I can watch the show!! As for the reviews like you said it is pretty much what do you say without giving it all away!
      Rosie Hopkins is still not here but I still have hope πŸ™‚

  • I’m a new Jenny Colgan fan! I need to give her Rosie series a try. Hope you enjoy it.

      I received it yesterday in the post and cannot wait to get started. You really should start reading her Rosie books as well as the Cupcake books too πŸ˜€
