Weekly Wrap Up July 12th

Hi everyone,

I’m a bit late with this as I didn’t get near my iPad until now! This week was another busy week on here! I managed to blog 6 times, with a mix of reviews, guest posts and a blog tour. I also managed to read 4 books, which brings my goodreads tally up to 104 books read so far this year 😊

I had two great guest posts from Judy Clemens (JC Lane) and Wendy Walker this week. I had read both of their books earlier this year and thoroughly enjoyed them. You can catch those posts by clicking on the relevant links below:

I read and reviewed 3 books, the 4th I’ll explain about at the end. These books were vastly different, so the variety was a nice change to the norm. These are what I reviewed:

The Road by Cormac McCarthy

Heavenfield by LJ Ross

You Were Never Really Here by Jonathan Ames

Lastly, I had the honour of closing out the blog tour for Michael Wood. This was a fun post because I got to bombard him with random questions as well a post my review 😊

I was lucky enough to be approved on Netgalley for The Deviants by CJ Skuse, and I finished it today. I have no review as of yet because it’s not out for months. I will say it was brilliant, and it left me super emotional, which rarely happens!

Yesterday, I had the pleasure of going to Dublin and meeting some fellow bloggers and some authors too. I was more than a little starstruck sitting beside Liz Nugent, author of Unravelling Oliver and Lying In Wait. It was a lovely afternoon of bookish chat, and we also had a Blind Date With A Book which was fun! I also managed to visit two bookshops so I didn’t come home empty handed πŸ˜‚

So, that was my week! How was yours? πŸ˜ŠπŸ“š

  1. What a wonderful week! Mine was spent working on my PhD and celebrating the boyfriend’s poetry being published on Friday night and all Saturday. Good times.

    Let me know what you think about The Muse. I got a review copy and can’t wait to read it.

  2. Is that 11.99 for a paperback?
    For some reason I avoided Rebecca for a while but it’s a great classic of the genre and some of her others are up there too.
