The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kim the Caffeinated Book Reviewer. Grab a cuppa and let me bend your ear (eyes?) for a few minutes with all my bookish news.
I had a fab week! I had a few days off work and it’s a bank holiday weekend here so I’ve loads of time to do all the things that I want to do so that makes me so happy. As much as I love blogging I get so frustrated that I can never give it the time that I want but this week I can.
I also had a little mini break in a nearby city which was so relaxing. Of course I found my way one or two bookshops. Obvs, what else would a book lover do when she visits a city. You can see the evidence below in my IG highlight. One of the shops was one of those totally unorganised secondhand book shops and I could have spent a week in there searching for treasures. In other news a pigeon did the dirt on my head, lovely! I have heard it’s lucky though so if I’m not around replying to comments, it could be that I’ve won the national lottery and I’m on a plane to sunnier soils 😀
I’ve added an affiliate link to Nosegraze in my sidebar. I don’t do a lot of adds around here but I use Ultimate Book Blogger plugin and swear by it. It saves me HOURS in formatting my reviews, gathering the book data, automatically creating review archives and so much more. My design is also based a Tweak Me theme so I stand over Ashley’s products. I know how good they are and I’m proud to advertise them on here.
Blog Ahead Update:
Last week I had 12 posts scheduled for Nov. Now I have 16 and I’ve a few more in drafts just waiting to be polished off. My aim was for 15 posts so I’ve already beaten that. And now that I’ve gotten ahead, I just need to keep it that way.
I’ve gone from 18 down to 16.

I’m cautiously saying that my heel is feeling better. I did a good bit walking later in the week on it and it ached but was bearable. Still not overdoing it and still icing and elevating but I think I’m heading in the right direction.

Books I have received to review:
Thanks to Aven Ellis for sending me a review copy of Breakout. I finished the previous book in this series – The Definition of Icing – last week and loved it. This whole series is adorable and I love spending time with these guys.
Books I have Bought!
I used my audible credit to buy Pretending to Dance as Diane Chamberlain is an auto-buy author for me. Very excited about this one.
I downloaded The Canterville Ghost for a spooky Halloween read and also as a book towards my Dust off your Classics challenge. Being in the public domain, it is of course free on amazon.
And my secondhand book shopping resulted in two Mary Higgins Clarks books – I’ll Walk Alone and Dashing Through the Snow. Plus one hardback Agatha Christie book – The Murder of Roger Ackroyd. All in excellent condition and at rock bottom prices.
Well, that’s my week wrapped up. Happy Reading to all. How was your week? Any books you were really excited about?
