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. Guys, I’m back but broken!
Between My Sundays – what happened this week
I’m back but broken!
I had fallen out of love with blogging, and had just been publishing my reviews on my FB page. And that was going great, but I signed up to a blog tour for this week, and so came back to my blog. And I had forgotten just how much I loved actual blogging, and all my blog features that I can add to my reviews. It felt like coming home to my own little space, that I had decorated just the way I wanted.
As for the broken. I’m on week 6 day 6 of a broken humorous. Believe me there is nothing funny about it. I’m healing ok, but have to wear a brace and sling 24 hours a day. Yes, even to bed, notice I don’t say to sleep. Now I’m counting the days to my next appointment at 8 weeks, and hopefully I can sling that sling and brace into the bin forever. Fingers crossed, and at this stage I can actually cross them, a few weeks ago I couldn’t!
But the upside is I’ve loads of time to read, as I can’t partake in my usual hobbies. Believe me, I’ve never been so grateful in my life for my love of reading.
Writer’s Week in Waterford
Last weekend, I attended a reader’s and writer’s festival. The first event was a talk about the new stars of Irish literature. So interesting and about books that I would never have picked up. But after listening to the authors, I now will. My next stop was the bookshop, where I browsed happily, and bought new books. And then I attended a silent reading party in these really quaint vintage tea rooms. Such a surreal experience. About 60ish people reading, sipping their drink and complete silence. It was both mad and fantastic!
My Reading Week
Close to Home is set in Oxford and I’m racing through it with my heart in my mouth.
The Book of Love is giving me all the feels. It’s like a sweet but bitter love story with all the realism of normal life.
The Perfect Family is my first book by Shalini Boland and won’t be my last.
