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?
Yet another Monday has rolled around and my book list is still epically massive! Thanks to Sheila over at Book Journey all of us book lovers/geeks come together on this gloriously tiring day and share what we have read, plan to read etc. So whilst I am finishing my second to last night shift of the week and heading to bed with a nice cuppa and a couple of pages before I drift into the land of nod I thought I would share what I have been up to.
Sent from the lovelies at Harper Perennial US I am loving this book but struggling to get through it as sleep takes over me. Tomorrow I will be able to give it a little more attention!
Review posted HERE. Check it out and even grab a copy if you can.
I just LOVE Liane Moriarty’s writing so I am very much looking forward to this one. Although not looking forward to carrying it as it is a hefty hardback! May have to look into a Kindle version :(
What have you been reading?
This week my reading schedule has been a little crazy and when I say that I mean from 0 to 60 within nano seconds. Throughout a nasty bout of acute tonsillitis I have found it hard to stay awake, concentrate and generally just function so reading has been quite a challenge. My DVD collection however has most definitely taken a bash as it is a lot easier to just fall asleep with a movie on.
That being said I have made good progress with the book I am currently reading.
When I started this book my initial thoughts were not great but now that I am into it things have most definitely changed.
This is one book that I wanted to love but some things just are not meant to be! Well at least not yet!
This book has been shelved for a while.
This book did not start off well for me – having watched a couple of the films and not read any of the books I think I need to start from the beginning. What a shame!
One of the above two but I am not sure which once may get chosen.
What are you reading?
This wonderful meme is the brainchild of Sheila from Book Journey. Sadly due to work commitments I do not partake as much as I would like. However my toe is dipped in the water enough to be classified as lukewarm!
This week there has not been much reading going on over a Blog A Book however I am aiming to catch up with myself – after the steak dinner and glass of red my friend will imminently provide.
So the nitty-gritty . . .
This book is surprisingly difficult to get into and my feelings towards it at the moment are far from positive. However thinking back to The End of Mr Y – I will stick with it for another 50 pages and see how I go.
All I need to say here is Marianne Kavanagh is a great writer and just all out lovely person. Her book was enjoyable as you can read HERE and she is just so sweet which you can see HERE.
Next To Read
As listed in my books to read in August this is the next book on my list that is one out of my pile of many that have been sitting there for some time. HOWEVER . . . There are a few books that I received the other day that I really do want to get stuck into. Take a look.
Nice little pile there right! Am I not a lucky girl! Well I think so anyway! Relevant thank you’s have been sent out over t’internet via the wonderful Instagram – click on the link you know you want to see what I get up to!
