Weekend Catch Up

I have not done a weekend catch up in forever! Mostly just because I haven’t been doing much on the weekend that warrants attention, but, I thought it would be good to catch up a little on what I’ve been doing and what I’ve been reading. I have, since Thursday 17th October, been suffering from…

September Roundup

Hello lovelies! Sorry for my recent absence, I was off recovering and reading lots of books! My dressing is now off of the wound and everything is healing nicely. Just waiting for the dissolvable stitches to dissolve. I ended up reading 12 books this month, which became a bit of a mission because I had…

Unexpected Turn of Events

So, I had minor surgery on Friday (27/09/2019) and stupidly didn’t think things through. I’ve only had long surgeries with general anaesthetic and didn’t make the connection that I’d be out for the count and out of work all Friday. I did however, expect to be back at work on Monday but I got signed…

What Books Have Made it Into My Suitcase?

So, by the time this is posted, I will have just boarded my flight from Gatwick to New York. My oldest and dearest friend is getting married in New York and I am excited to be a part of her wedding and to get to go back to New York again. I’ll be there for…

Goodreads – Agatha Christie Part 1

I have always loved watching Poirot and Miss Marple on the television. I knew of Agatha Christie and the books she wrote but I never entertained reading them when I was younger. The BBC’s production of the ‘ABC Murder’s’, offered me such a different view of Poirot that it gave me leave to want to…

August Book Haul

Technically, this book haul was not paid for with money I shouldn’t have spent! It was paid for with ‘celebratory I have read 100 books this year and I’m feeling a bit low’ money. So, technically, I broke no rules! The Diamond of Drury Lane by Julia Golding I am Cat Royal – Orphan, Adventurer,…

August Round Up

I always think of August as a funny month. A boring month. A long month. Nothing happens in August. At work, August is the month that most people have off. It is a long month to stretch a paycheck through. I have been lucky that this August has been quite warm, coming from the UK…

87. Her Mother’s Grave (Josie Quinn 3) by Lisa Regan

I have now put all other books aside so I can finish devouring this series that has seared itself to my heart and buried its plot in my brain. Synopsis (as taken from the Amazon Kindle Store) is as follows: When two young boys discover human bones buried beneath a tree in a trailer park,…

86. Try Not To Breathe by Holly Seddon

This was one of the 12 psychological thrillers I ordered at the beginning of the month. I took this with me on a hen party this weekend and managed to finish it in two days. Again, I didn’t see the ending coming and was surprised when I learnt the secret. Synopsis (as taken from Amazon)…

85. The Girl With No Name (Josie Quinn Book 2) by Lisa Regan

I have unexpectedly fallen in love with this series of books. I knew full well that when I have finished reading them I shall be buying them in paperback. I find there is something special to the characters and the stories that keeps drawing me in. This was impossible to put down and I loved…
