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. This week it’s the Return of the Blogger edition, as I’m back. Again!
Between My Sundays – what happened this week
Maybe I should cross out “what happened this week” and change it to this summer. I have been doing everything except blogging. Partially because I had some health issues, and I needed lots of me-time to recover and refocus. But I’m back in my stride again. Thankfully as always books were there, to comfort me, distract me and encourage me.
I’ve had a few days away in the West of Ireland, by a lake and it was very restorative. And lots of beach days. Lots of walking and running and reading. But now I need to get the head down and write some of those stacks of reviews that have accumulated. I keep the physical books that need reviews on my bedside locker and before they reach nightmare status, I need to whittle that pile down. Don’t even mention those on my kindle!
What I’m watching:
Not a lot! I finished Friends from College and it was ok. An easy watch, with lots of laughs and I’d definitely watch a second series. Oh and of course I’m watching Game of Thrones. OMG! This is a cracking series so far, I can’t believe there is only 2 episodes left.

Books I have received to review:
I have received lots of ARCS over the summer, and have been reading through them steadily, so expect lots of reviews. However these are the ARCs that I have up next on my reading list. But to be honest, I’m not really a follower of lists, I’ll just dip in to them when the mood hits.
- The Chalk Man by CJ Tudor – how sinister is that cover!
- Give Me The Child by Mel McGrath – I love dark psychological thrillers, and this has all the vibes of being just that
- Why Seagulls Roost in Paris by Kathleen Curtin – an ARC that came all the way from Paris to me. “From the attic rooms of a Bourgeois residence to the cellars and catacombs of Paris’s old quarters, the story serves up adventure and intrigue”. Yummy!
Books I have bought:
None. My aim this year is not to buy more books, until I start reading more of the ones I already own. But I do have a shopping cart full on The Book Depository!
I’m listening to Small Great Things on audiobook. I’m raging while I read it, but I’m also loving it.
Last Seen is my very mysterious e-book. Set in the UK, around a summer beach hut community, it’s another read that I’m loving.
So, that’s my week wrapped up. Happy Reading to all.
