It’s been a slower week this week, I spent a few days away visiting my Sister and Niece in Lincolnshire and so spent some time away from the blogging world, I had some posts scheduled, but didn’t have time for reading blogs or keeping up with thank you’s. So thank you to everyone who shared posts this week and I will get back to reading all of your lovely blogs post haste!
As for Lincolnshire, it was what I needed, some fresh air and time away from the city. We visited Lincoln, my first time there and what a lovely place it is. I also started giving my Niece some music lessons, it was lovely watching her pick up the basics and start to understand how to make a tune and start to read music from her book. I’ve left her with some exercise books which should help her learn some more.
I’ve still been struggling with getting my bipolar under control with the new medication changes so the reading has crawled to a snails pace. Hopefully it will start picking up again soon although there has been a serious miscommunication between the mental health team and GP leaving me minus any medication this weekend so I’m far from amused!
I did get some great news though, the lovely author Aven Ellis dropped me a line to say she had dropped one of my quotes in as her top review on the Amazon page for her most recent novel Sugar and Ice. I’m so flattered, this was such a pleasant book to read and I do hope others enjoy it just as much as I did.
I have also had a couple of great prizes donated for my blogiversary next month! Can’t wait for you guys to see what is up for grabs!
Right, onto this weeks update…
What I’ve Read
I read When the Floods Came as part of my Discoverability Challenge this month and I can’t wait to write my review for you it far surpassed my expectations.
This week started off slow, then I had an explosion of Blog Tour books sent to me! At least they are mostly for tours right?! haha! I also received the book I won in Rachel Gilbey‘s birthday giveaway, this looks like a treat, thank you so much for that Rachel!
Some great reviews this week, oddly all the books are young adult which considering I’m trying to pull away from the genre is a bit weird!
This week I’ve had a book blitz, a cover reveal and Zoë Markham was featured on The Bookshelf.
