Week in Review – 23 April 2017

week-in-review-logo

It’s been a funny old week this week. I had a book that I’d been chomping at the bit to read that I had to admit defeat on just past the halfway mark. I will write a brief review on it next week as I did make it far enough to form some valid opinions and it only seems fair, but I was genuinely gutted to be making the decision to walk away from it.

I’ve been really busy with my volunteering, I’ve done two whole days this week which has wiped me out, I’m not used to that anymore (I know, I know, most people work full time but I’ve been out of commission for three years!), I’ll hopefully be doing more of this kind of thing as I build up towards working again (yay!) so fingers crossed the old bipolar cooperates!

I won a couple more giveaways, I don’t have all the books yet so they aren’t all on here but I’m not sure where all this luck is coming from lately! Speaking of Giveaways my blogiversary giveaways are still open and I’m running one in conjunction with Sybil Bartel at the moment to win a copy of her book Thrust, the links are in the Giveaways section below.

I also have spaces throughout May for people to take part in my The Bookshelf feature. It’s open to Bloggers and Authors so if you fancy it drop me a line via the form over on this page and I can send you the questions! It’s a great bit of fun and I would love to get more Bloggers involved.

So, onto my update this week… (as always click on the covers for more info/to see the posts)

New Books

This week I picked up a novella I’ve been hearing loads about The Old Man At The End of the World, hopefully I will have some time to read it soon, it sounds a hoot. I also won a historical novel which sounds a lovely read at a giveaway run by the lovely Danielle at Books Vertigo and Tea. I don’t read much historical fiction anymore but this one really stands out for me so I’m looking forward to giving it a go.

  1. Congratulations on all your wins! And hey, going back to any sort of work is tiring …I’ve been off work for four weeks and just the thought of going back tomorrow is emotionally draining me. I know I’m going to be wiped out this week. So yay you xx

    1. Good luck tomorrow, I hope it goes well for you! And thank you, I think because I’ve been off with my mental health I didn’t realise the toll getting back to work would have in me physically! It’s a real shock to the system. 😲

  2. I think 2 wholes day is quite an astounding accomplishment personally! I am excited for you. I work nearly full time now from home (which is not the same I am learning), but I have been out of commission quite a bit, so I know how exhausting it can be. I am glad you were able to get the time in. I hope you have a fantastic week ahead 🙂

    1. Oh thank you, I quite miss working from home, it was nice working in my own environment I always got on really well with it, and you don’t miss deliveries! 😊 I hope your week is looking up a bit. 🤞
