Welcome to The Sunday Post, 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 I’m in a reading frenzy and loving all the books
Between My Sundays – what happened this week
I’m in a reading frenzy
As a book blogger, that might not sound like a very startling statement. But I have been feeling lacklustre about books for months and months. Often choosing to Netflix binge rather than read. Then just like a switch, my feels for books have turned back on. Now I can’t read enough and I’m loving all the books I’m reading. Although those two statements are probably related. All I know is I’m happy to reclaim my inner bookworm, and all feels right with my world.
For now, and forever Valentine’s Day will be bittersweet for me. It’s the day our baby was due. We are marking this bittersweet day with a break away, and honouring our little angel by spending the time together. It feels like the last step in the grieving process to get through this day, although my heart will never be the same again. Yes, I know it might seem odd that I talk about this here on the blog, but I find the silence does me no favours. Unfortunately, it’s all too common, and I feel we should make discussion about it a more normal thing. You never know who it might help.
My Reading Week
Finally I finished my audiobook three Sisters, three Queens and thoroughly enjoyed it. The length of time it took me to read is only reflective of the monster length of these books on audio, and not because I was dragging my heels with it.
The Secret Wife was a brilliant read, and a must-read if you are intrigued by Russia and the Romanov Royal family as I am. Huge thumbs up for a gripping story that I wish was true. It’s intriguing to think one of the family might have escaped even though I know dna evidence proved otherwise.
Last night I started The Daughter by Lucy Dawson, and somehow I’m 75% in this morning. That says it all!

Books I have received to review:
Huge book blogger fail here. This week I got some fab books from publishers, but I left them under my desk in work and I can’t remember the titles of them! I’ll save them for a future Sunday Post.
Already I own this in physical book form, but I wanted to continue to listen this series on audiobook. So I bought it in that format too.
My second time to borrow this book. But this time I WILL read it. The Secret Wife has made me anxious to read more books set in Russia and this fits the bill nicely
Calling that a wrap on this week. Happy Reading to all.
