Another week of 2019 gone by, including (for those of us in the Northern Hemisphere at least) the longest day of the year. I have mixed feelings about this – yes it also happens to be the start of meteorological summer and I’m hoping for some lovely weather where I can head out and read in some lovely parks. At the same time it means we’re on the slope back towards longer nights and the end of the year and I’m just not prepared for 2019 to go by quite so quickly!
This past week has been another busy one at work as I try and reach the end of the project I’m working on ready to start my new role on the 1st. I did however take some time out to buy some tickets to travel back to Devon for a week in mid July. It’ll be the first time I’ve been home in about a year, so hopefully the weather will play nice!
This week coming sees my long awaited spa day and I so need it! As well as that I’ll be catching up with my god daughter and her little brother as they finish school and nursery for the summer holidays and celebrating my best friend’s dad’s birthday with a BBQ so hopefully the weather will hold out!
Books I’ve Read This Week
On SWB This Week
It’s been a busy week on SWB this week! I shared three review posts – MG Shorts; The Birthday by Carol Wyer; and Jack of Hearts [and Other Parts] by L. C. Rosen. I shared the books I’m most looking forward to in the second half of the year for Top Ten Tuesday. Completed the 30 Interesting Questions tag for Tag Thursday and this morning I shared the couples I’d like to see get a sequel for Six For Sunday. Finally yesterday I shared the contents of the May Fairyloot box – Unlikely Romances.
From Around The Blogsphere
The Rockskippers ate macarons in Paris and now I very much want to do the same. Amy talked about some of the shows she’s been binge watching this year. As part of pride month Kate shared some thoughts from queer readers about what they’d like to see in LGBTQIA+ books. Charlotte shared a really interesting post about why trigger warnings are important. There were a couple of great tag responses this week, including Amy’s take on The Hamilton Book Tag and Charlotte’s take on The Anything But Books Tag.
Book reviews I loved: Cora reviewed The Beholder by Anna Bright; Hollie reviewed Furyborn by Claire Legrand; Mrs Cooke’s Books reviewed Almost Adults by Ali Pantony; Charlotte reviewed Circe by Madeline Miller; and Rae reviewed Call It What You Want by Brigid Kemmerer.
