Weekly Wrap Up November 6th

Hi everyone,

So I’m still in a bit of a reading slump and it’s going on for a week now! I have managed to read 2 books this week, but it was hard work to do it!

I don’t have much bookish news either, it’s been pretty quiet chez Bibliophile so I’m going to keep this relatively short! Here’s what you may have missed out on this week:

Daniel Pembrey and Susi Holliday in Conversation…


What Alice Knew by T. A. Cotterell

First Monday Crime: Spotlight on… Adam Hamdy


*Blog Tour* The Bone Collection by @KathyReichs


October Book Haul


*Blog Tour* Crash Land by Doug Johnstone



Before It’s Too Late by Jane Isaac

So that’s been my week! Next week I’ve got the Beneath the Ashes blog tour, My Sister’s Bones blog tour and part one of the Finnish Invasion tour with The Exiled towards the end of the week! 🙂

Hope you’ve all had a good week!

Weekly Wrap Up Oct 15th

Hey everyone,

It’s weekly wrap up time. Funnily enough, as I type this, its only Saturday which means I actually had some time to get organised! Now if only I could figure out how to stretch out time so I could read all of the books I need to… 🙈📚

This week was quiet enough with reading again. I managed to read 3 books, maybe 4 by the time this gets posted! So roughly 134/135 books read this year so far!

Anyway, as regards blog posts this past week, I had 5 posts. A relatively low key week but I think that’ll all change in the coming weeks as I’ve got loads coming up!

This week I read and reviewed the latest Mel Sherratt:


The Girls Next Door by Mel Sherratt

I had two blog tours on Thursday and Friday for James Carol and Graham Smith:

*Blog Tour* The Killing Game by JS Carol

*Blog Tour* I Know Your Secret by Graham Smith

I snuck in a review for a 2017 release that you all need to read if you love psych thrillers:


Behind Her Eyes by Sarah Pinborough 2017 WatchList

And last but by no means least, I was on the blog tour for Anne Coates and her new book, Dancers in the wind:


*Blog Tour* Dancers in the Wind by Anne Coates


Next week there’s some more great blog tours here:

My ever-wonderful guest reviewer Ellen is on the tour for PsychoAnalysis by V. R. Stone.


I have Rebecca Bradley joining me on the blog again with a guest post as part of the Three Weeks Dead publication blog tour.


I’m also on the blog tour for A. J. Waines and her forthcoming book Inside The Whispers!

So! That’s been my week and what’s coming up here next week too!

How has you’re week been? Have you read anything I need to know about?? 😉📚

Weekly Wrap Up Oct 9th

Hi everyone,

This will be short and sweet but better late than never with this! Been having a bit of a rough couple of days here so I didn’t get a chance to get near my laptop until now!

I’ve had a relatively quiet week on the blog, and probably an even quieter reading week. I managed to read 4 books this week, bringing my total read so far this year to 133 books.

Posts-wise, I blogged 5 times, with the majority of those being blog tour posts.

First up though, I had my book haul post for September. For once, it was actually quite a low total!!! Catch that post here:

September Book Haul

I finally managed to post a review as well, for Only Daughter by Anna Snoekstra which I read while travelling to and from London:

Only Daughter by Anna Snoekstra

And the three blog tours were for Elizabeth Haynes, Frances Brody and Rob Enright. Click on the relevant links below to read my reviews for the ladies and my Q&A with Rob!

*Blog Tour* Never Alone by Elizabeth Haynes

*Blog Tour* Death at the Seaside by Frances Brody

*Blog Tour* Doorways by Rob Enright

That’s been my week. Next week will be quieter than recent weeks, I have three blog tours scheduled towards the weekend, but hopefully I’ll catch up on some reading and be able to get some more reviews up too!

Hope you all had a lovely weekend 🙂

Weekly Wrap Up August 28th

Hi everyone,

I hope you’ve all had a good week. It’s hard to believe that the kids are back to school next week here and it’s FINALLY back into a routine! I can’t wait! 😊

I’ve had another busy week on here with a couple of reviews and two blog tours as well as the usual Saturday Series post! 

As regards reading, I’m still slow but I managed to read one book, bringing my total books read this year to 114 so far. Not bad when my target was 75!

So anyway, back to this week’s posts!

On Monday, I had the pleasure of author Cat Hogan joining me for a Q&A as part of the blog tour for They All Fall Down:

Blog Tour Q&A with Cat Hogan- They All Fall Down

Tuesday’s post was another blog tour. This time it was Valentina Giambanco with a guest post to coincide with her latest novel, Blood and Bone:

Blog Tour- Blood and Bone by Valentina Giambanco

Next up was a review I’ve been sitting on for a few weeks, a debut from Elizabeth Heathcote called Undertow. I thoroughly enjoyed this one:

Undertow by Elizabeth Heathcote

As usual, I had the Triple S post yesterday. I was joined by Hemmie Martin as she discussed her own series as well as some books she’s read and enjoyed:

Saturday Series Spotlight- Hemmie Martin

Last, but by no means least, I reviewed the superb Pendulum by Adam Hamdy! Definitely one to watch out for!

Pendulum by Adam Hamdy

That’s been my week on the blog! Next week sees another very busy week with blog tours, and I’ll hopefully have a review as well. I’m currently reading The Constant Soldier by William Ryan before I go to meet him on Friday evening in Limerick so that will be a nice break from the norm! 😊

What you’ll see on here next week:

  • Matching the Evidence by Graham Smith blog tour
  • A Death in the Family by Michael Stanley blog tour
  • First Monday Crime spotlight on Jane Corry
  • Blackout by Ragnar Jónasson blog tour
  • August Book Haul post
  • Q&A with Jackie Baldwin 

How has your week been? 😊

Weekly Wrap Up January 24th

I’m having a nightmare with WordPress posts today so my WWU for this week is later than I’d like!!! Better late than never! 😂

I managed to get another 6 books read this week, bringing my tally up to 21 books read so far this year!


First up, The Invisible Guardian by Dolores Redondo. 


I’m on the blog tour for this next week, so I’m afraid you’ll have to wait until then for my review! I gave to book 3/3.5 ⭐️ on Goodreads though. A good read and a decent start to the Baztán Trilogy!

A couple of short stories were up after this:

The Affair by Emma Kavanagh


A decent, very quick short story by Kavanagh! I had read and loved Falling (review HERE) and fellow reviewer Claire Knight recommended this to me so of course I had to have a read! A solid 4⭐️ for The Affair.

Switchblade by Michael Connelly


I forget how much I like Harry Bosch until I pick up a book by Michael Connelly. Without a doubt, one of my favourite detectives to read about. I’m going to have to make time to read the series from the start! This story is short but sweet. Retribution and regret are the main themes in play. Well worth a read if you enjoy the HB series. Another easy 5⭐️ on Goodreads.


After You Die by Eva Dolan 


This book was just fab! Really enjoyed it! You can read my 5⭐️ review HERE!

The Girl You Lost by Kathryn Croft


On a roll with bloody great books this week! Next up was this beaut! I had a great review written, but it got lost in the wilderness earlier this evening! 😡 However, I have another one written, another 5⭐️ book, and you can read that review HERE.
Last but by no means least,


No Longer Safe by A.J. Waines 


I finished this book earlier on today, and it was brilliant! I am STILL trying to work out the ending! 😂 You can read my 4⭐️ review HERE!

What have you all read this week?

Any standouts?! 😊📖
