Week in Review – 16 April 2017

Happy Easter everyone, I hope you are all having a lovely long weekend, and for those of you who eat chocolate I hope you are buried knee deep in it.

I’ve been a reading beast this week, I’ve read so much I’m a little confused how I’ve managed it as I’ve also been extremely busy! This is by no means a complaint mind you! I’ve also succeeded in acquiring less books than I’ve read which means my to read list is actually shorter now than it was this time last week which is the first time in about six months I can say that! (Hoorrraaayy!)

This week saw my second blogiversary, I can’t believe I’ve been at this book blogging game for two years now! I said this in my post but I want to repeat it here, a huge thank you to all of you who have supported me both from the beginning and along the way. The book blogging community is like no other blogging community and it’s not something I ever forget. To celebrate I pulled together some pretty nice giveaways, if you missed them I have links to them in the giveaways section below, or you can head to my blogiversary post to find out more details about the prizes on offer.

I also got to meet the lovely Laini Taylor this week. My review of her latest book, Strange the Dreamer, is linked below if you missed it. Laini was over here on a book tour promoting the new book and as she came to Bristol is was a great opportunity for me to stop by the signing and say Hi! Robin Hobb is over here and in Bath in a few weeks so I’m rather excited to be going along to that event, I must make sure I keep the fangirl under control or I may just end up being an incoherent imbecile!

So, onto my update this week…

New Books

I’m still on a mission not to keep adding to my TBR right now…as you can see this is still not going so well! But I at least managed to read more than I acquired this week so that’s something and I never bought any books this week which is something of a miracle!

I'm BrizzleLass, I have Bipolar and have been dealing with mental illness in one form or another since childhood, I was first diagnosed with depression at nine. It's not easy speaking out about my experiences, some of them are extremely painful, but if I can help even one person then I have succeeded in sharing my story. This is where I talk about my mental health among other things that interest me. I enjoy walking, PlayStation, reading, heavy metal, and spending time with my Niece.
