With yet another weekend gone by too soon another week has begun. More books and things to do as always with to do lists forever growing. Shops have started to stock for Christmas and the shopping madness has begun. With another packed work week and the clocks gone back I have squeezed in quite a bit of reading and hope this week will bring me the same opportunity. You may notice that the majority of the books that I am reading have an extremely festive theme, I am not really one for scary books so Halloweeny books are out of the equation and straight for the happy festive reads it is! But fear not fair readers I have yet to break out Elf or other Christmassy films (Give it a week!).
The second book in the Notting Hill series from Ali McNamara and I am loving it.
If you have read this you may notice that there are a lot of film references – I have made a list (that is forever growing!) and making my way slowly through it! Awesome reason to watch films!
Although there was a slow start this book was a good read.
Review going live on 2nd Nov so check back here.
This book was as always with Jenny Colgan books truly fantastic.
Review will be posted ASAP.
Check out my REVIEW HERE
So as you can see it has been a busy week over here and more plans for an even busier one this week. On the work side of things I managed to finished the monthly newsletter and have already started planning for the next one. Like I said I have a list of films that I am working my way through so I will let you know how that goes. There will be some other interesting bits happening over here so stay tuned.
Tomorrow there will be a post with some pics from a lovely Autumn Drive.
Keep those peepers peeled!
Lots of Festive Love :D
My, my what a busy weekend! With the read-a-thon over (sadly :() a new week is upon us and life most certainly does go on. Did you take part in the read-a-thon? If you did, how did you get on? Now onto the books!
Almost half way through and I absolutely LOVE this book.
Quite a tear jerker for Jenny Colgan but I will leave it at that as I do not want to spoil it for you!
Thanks to the Read-a-thon I have managed to finish this book and am patiently waiting to start the next one. The review will be up soon.
As well as the Notting Hill book I will be writing a review about this ASAP.
I am slightly disappointed that I am still waiting for this book – so BIG boo hoo from me!
What are you reading this week?
Creeping into Hour 9 and it is 9:15pm here in the UK. Having had dinner, pottered about and managed to organise the rest of my night out I have finished my first book. The catch is I was already half way through at the beginning of the Thon. This may sound like a cheat but you know what, I was still reading! Why not!
I am more sure than ever now that I will be reading the rest of this series of books. Towards the end I was clutching to a pillow with tears in my eyes! But before I tell you any more I will save that for the review and leave you with this song.
What are you reading?!
So it is Hour 5 of the Read-a-thon and I have only just started reading as I have been co-hosting for the past two hours and running to and fro catching up on errands prior to that like a crazy person. All settled in now.
Despite a rocky start I am actually starting to LOVE this book so I think if I am successful in finishing my next book it will be onto the next one in this series which is From Notting Hill to New York Actually by Ali McNamara.
About to Begin
I am sooooo excited about this book – I LOVE Jenny Colgan’s books and I LOVE Christmas!
Now for a little music . . .
For some reason I cannot stop listening to these two songs in particular. George Ezra’s album Wanted on Voyage is truly amazing and his voice just helps me read and tap my foot along too!
