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!).

Currently Reading

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!

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!

Yet another Monday has rolled around and of course more reading has been done. This week I will be preparing for the 24 Hour Readathon on the weekend. Check out the Dewey’s Read-a-thon website. After a solid work week last week I am catching up on reading on my day off and my intake of caffeine is through the roof. Keep your eyes peeled throughout the week for thoughts on books for my read-a-thon stack. Facebook, Instagram and Twitter will be the place to go! So onto the books!

Today is my day off so I will hopefully make some headway with this book in order to finish it way before the read-a-thon begins.

Next Up

This was delivered the other day and I am fighting with myself in order to finish the current read on my bedside table instead of tossing it to the side to indulge in yet another wonderful Colgan.

After a while away from Monday posting here I am again! It’s not that I haven’t been reading but working weekends and not having anything scheduled leaves holes in the blog! :( Better organisation is much-needed.

Keep checking back for the review – I will link it up to this post and onto Goodreads :D

Currently Reading

I feel like I have reached a bit of a stalemate between myself and my pile of books.

At the moment the books that I am considering for reading are

Alif the Unseen, G Willow Wilson, Books, Reading, Fiction, Reviews, Blog A Book Etc, Fantasy, Atlantic Books

This book was a recommendation by a member of staff in my favourite Foyles store due to my search for a book like The End of Mr Y by Scarlett Thomas. I wonder will it live up to the wonderful recommendation.

Orlando, Virginia Woolf, Vintage Books, Random House, Secondhand Books, Reading, Reviews, Books, Fiction, Blog A Book Etc

With a yearning to delve into the classics I picked up a copy of this at my local second-hand bookshop – the place is a cavern for EVERYTHING new and old and I generally come out with a handful of books I do not need but so desperately want.
My copy of this has a different cover but I couldn’t find a picture so will take one later.

From Notting Hill with Love Actually, Love Actually, Notting Hill, London, Love, Romance, Chick Lit, Fiction, Reading, Books, Ali Harris, Little Brown Book Group, Sphere, Blog A Book Etc, Fay, Ali McNamara

This was sent to me last year from what I can remember and I now have three from what I can only call a series.
I am yet to read any of Ali McNamara’s books but if they are anything like my usual type of chick lit read I am sure I will enjoy it.
This one in particular I have actually started so I just need to get into it and speed through the series so I can catch up to the new release of From Notting Hill with Four Weddings Actually as that is patiently waiting in line and is released very soon.

If you were me, which would you pick?

Or would you be ambitious and go for all three as they are all completely different types of read.

This could be a very interesting week!
