Weekly Update Sept 30th – Oct 6th 2019

General Update

Hello everyone!

This has become a bit of a running theme the last three weeks but I must apologise for not keeping up with everyone’s blog posts this week as I had to take some time away from my laptop and the blogosphere due to ill health. I hope no one feels as if I were ignoring their posts or comments because it looked like I was active here due to my scheduled posts… I always schedule a week’s worth of posts on a Sunday so even though my blog appeared active I spent the majority of this week cocooned in my bed.

Hopefully with a little more rest I will soon be back to my regular blog-hopping self.

But in the meantime if I have missed any posts that you feel super proud about writing or even posts written by other bloggers that you came across this week can you please link to them below in the comments section so I can check them out.

What I read

I only managed to finish one book this week, Skyward by Brandon Sanderson, because I was too ill to read but what a really enjoyable book it was! It was my first time reading a novel by Sanderson and I really loved it. My review for Skyward will be up in the next few days so keep an eye out for it if you’re interested.

What I am currently reading and what I intend to read next

I started my eARC of Permanent Record by Mary H.K Choi yesterday but am only one chapter in so can’t really tell you much about it but I hope to finish it in the next day or two. After that I have a bunch of library books on loan that I am really excited to read. I don’t know which title I will read next but some of my choices are:

  • Vicious by VE Schwab
  • The Bookish Life of Nina Hill by Abbi Waxman
  • The Fifth Season by N.K. Jemisin
  • The 100 by Kass Morgan

Any suggestions as to which one I should read first??

Book reviews

The following are the book reviews that I posted to my blog this week:

Book tags, discussions and memes

Goodreads Monday this week was all about Landline by Rainbow Rowell.

This week’s Top Ten Tuesday post about Book Titles with Numbers in Them.

I was nominated for my fourth Sunshine Blogger Award by my friend Sarah.

Thursday Discussion was a post in celebration of Mean Girls Day that focused on one of my fav books with pink on the cover, Queenie by Candice Carty-Williams

And I took part in three book tags:

And that’s another week wrapped up! If you’ve done a review of your reading and blogging week then feel free to link that in the comments section below.

Here’s to a great reading and blogging week ahead for all of us!

Much love friends.

  2. I’m sorry you haven’t been feeling well Emer! I’ve been sick too and my blogging took a hit because of it. I’m really behind on posts (not to mention all the posts I haven’t written 🙈) but I’m hoping to catch up on everything soon! I hope you’re feeling a bit better now!
