Between My Sundays – what happened this week

“Get busy living or get busy dying.” ― Stephen King, Different Seasons

Happy 2017!

A new year always makes me so happy as I think it’s a great chance to reset some things in my life that I’m not 100% happy with.  My word of the year for 2017 is ‘create‘ and I wrote a blog post explaining just why that word resonates with me and how I see it improving my life in the year ahead.

My Christmas was quiet and peaceful just the way I like it.  I indulged in too much food, read lots of books and binge watched Nashville Season 2 and 3.  Now I’m ready to kick off 2017, get back into routine and take action to make it a happy year.  It’s easy to make plans and resolutions but the hard work is following through.  But I’m ready, willing and able.

Thank you for sticking with me last year, every comment was read, treasured and appreciated, even if I was a slacker and didn’t reply to you.  I hope your 2017 is happy and brings you one step closer to whatever your heart’s desire is. And if it doesn’t look like it, then grab the reins and run like hell in the direction of your dreams!



Second Chance Sunday – What happened here:


Second Chance Sunday – What happened in the blogosphere:


I went unplugged for most of Christmas so no links today.



Books I have received to review:


The Cinderella Reflex is set in Ireland and follows DJ Tess through her work and personal crisis as her 40th birthday approaches.  It sounds great and I’m looking forward to reading and reviewing soon.


Books I have bought:



And that is my Christmas vouchers well spent.  And more, I always end up adding to them to get the books I want.  When I have a stack made in the shop, I can’t leave any behind!  Who else spends more than their vouchers?!


Library Haul:


I haven’t read a book by Lucinda Riley before but the description makes me think of Kate Morton so I decided to try her out.


So, that’s  my week wrapped up.  Happy Reading to all.


Talk to Trish:  How was your week?  Have you any exciting plans for 2017?

    Happy New Year Trish and hope your 2017 is fabulous. A quiet Christmas sounds wonderful, even though I had to travel it was very nice. I love your word of the year, and I saw a good review of I See You too- looks like a good one!

    Happy New Year to you and your husband! Hope you have whatever you set your mind to… and create!! Great word, and meaningful!

    I like that I’ve only heard of one of your books, I See You, which I want to read hopefully soon. The others I’m going to check out further. The Cinderella Reflex looks delightful, cover and blurb!

    Happy new year! I am excited to start this new year and I am hoping it will be a good one! Sounds like you had a nice and quiet Christmas, mine was a bit busy, but good too.

    The Cinderella Reflex sounds interesting! Looking forward to hear your thought son it. I have an amazon gift card that I’ve been slowly spending a bit on. I want to use for cheap books so I can get the most out of it or books I really wanted. I used it to buy a second book in a series this week after really enjoying book 1.

    Hope you’ll have a great week!

    Happy New Year!

    Wow, The Cinderella Reflex has such a gorgeous cover! I hope the inside is just as great!

    I always spend more than my vouchers too, and always all at once. One has to make the most of it, right?! Although I think (after the splurge I just made on two sequels *sigh*) that I might make a resolution to buy second hand books where I can this year.

      It takes a bit of searching on line to find them. I think they will air here soon though and then I can watch them properly. Happy New Year to you too Amy!
