Weekly Wrap Up (x2)

Hi everyone,

I didn’t do a wrap up post last week, so this week I have a bumper two week wrap up where you can catch up on everything that’s been going on!

Although I’ve been reading, my mojo is still AWOL. I’ve been reading some great books, and I know they’re great, but I’m just not in the form so they haven’t been hitting the mark! I’ve read 157 books this year though, so I guess I can’t complain!

I took part in an event online for THE Book Club on Facebook and I was on the panel for mystery/thriller books, so I did up a post with my Top 20 all time fave M/T books which you can see here:

I read and reviewed an FBI K9 book:

Lone Wolf by Sara Driscoll

The usual First Monday Crime Spotlight was on Alex Marwood:

My awesome guest reviewer , Ellen, read and reviewed The Poisoned Rock:

Six Stories by Matt Wesolowski

And on Friday, I finally posted my top reads of the year, which has turned out to be my most popular post EVER on the blog:

As for what’s coming up next week, I’m posting another top reads post tomorrow from Dave Hardy, where he lists some stellar books he’s read this year.

I’m also going to post up some reviews, because I’m a bit behind so there should be reviews up for the following books at some stage:

  • The River at Night by Erica Ferencik
  • Duplicity by Sibel Hodge
  • The Girl Before by J. P. Delaney
  • Lies by T. M. Logan

So yeah, that’s been my recent weeks. How has yours been? Read anything I shuld add to my TBR? Do let me know! ๐Ÿ™‚
