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.

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!
How is your Monday going so far?
Many Monday’s have passed with lots of goings on including reading, writing and just general life. However I have missed out on the weekly meme to update you lovely people on my not so exciting life. So here goes!
This is one book that I have picked up and put down quite a lot. However that is only due to lack of time, the writing style is fun and fancy free which means you can dip in and out without losing track of the story line. The copy that I have looks like a large print book however it is just quite a big page size – which I love.
On Friday I posted a list of books that I hope to finish in August and For Once in My Life is one of the three. Looks like I better get a move on.

Already a fan of Scarlett Thomas from reading The End of Mr Y many years ago this book has been on my list for quite some time and I will finally get around to it after my current read.
This book was a great read. My review has been posted HERE.
Yet another week has gone by and a little bit more reading has been achieved. Have I been listening, well . . .
This book has been to so many places with me that I had to take off the wonderful cover in fear of more damage!
I am trying to pick it up at every interval I get and I am so close to the end now that in a way I don’t want it to end.
It ‘s still early in the day and I am hoping to get to the end of 60 Postcards! Who knows it might be an audio week over here!
So far I like the concept of this book but it really is just weird. I like a good mystery like most but this is a few steps beyond!
Song of the Week
I have listened to this song so many times this week and each time I hit play I just smile.
On a recent walk to Wimbledon this came on and I just bopped along smiling and singing in the sunshine.
Don’t you just love it when that happens!
What are you reading this week?
This meme is hosted by the lovely Sheila over at Book Journey.
Another week has started and the pages keep on turning over here at Blog A Book.
As I am working today not much reading will get done during the day but I hope to catch up a bit when I get home and on the way home!
Although I am still reading this I have made a considerable dent and last night I switched off the TV in a bid to get even closer to the end.
As Sunday goes for TV it is pretty dry on anything new and jam-packed with repeats so it was the perfect opportunity to sit by open window with the sun streaming in and read away the evening.
This is one that has been on my To Be Reviewed pile for a while and I just have never got to it.
So, when the opportunity to listen to it on Audible came up why not! I will let you know how I get on!
