Week in Review – 15 October 2017

Huge congratulations to my good friend, James over at This Is My Truth Now who’s debut novel was published this week. It’s called Watching Glass Shatter and will blow your mind.  You can pick it up from Amazon UK Amazon US.

My cold I was moaning about last week turned out to be Bronchitis, yeah I hid that well! So I’ve been sick all this week as well, had a pretty bad asthma attack on Tuesday night as well which is a kicker as I’ve not needed any asthma meds for almost two years. So I’m now back on all the inhalers and trying to learn to breathe again and stop coughing!

The plus side to having been so sick is I’ve read loads, I tried reading a fantasy novel but couldn’t concentrate what with all the coughing so I have been blitzing my way through the romance novels on my TBR. Always a silver lining!

Right, here is my bookish update for this week!

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.

  1. The Seventh Decimate!! It’s not out yet, I’ve got a waiting on wednesday post for it scheduled this week.😂 Do you have an e-arc or did you snag a proper arc of it? It’s Gollancz, isn’t it? I haven’t had a press release from them in ages, must be on there sh#t list.😂

    Eurgh, being ill sucks, I hope you feel better soon.

    1. I’ve got a proper arc of The Seventh Decimate. I just restarted it today now that I’m not quite so bugged up and it’s good, it’s Stevie at Gollancz who is dealing with it. You should pop her a message, I had an email about a month ago about it.

      1. Yeah, she deals with all of Gollancz, I think, hoping for press releases this week as the new Miles Cameron book is out.👌

        I think I remember the press release for it but was currently fighting against an overwhelming surge of books to read. Book post has dwindled recently so I’ve actually caught up a bit, well, with what I want to read anyway.😂
