I don’t tend to talk that much about my health affects me in a given week… but this week you guys…
I have such a bad flare up of my chronic illness.
I started the week off with my third trip to hospital in as many weeks and I’m ending it confined to bed for the fourth day…
I have pain on a daily basis but this flare up… Really kicking my butt this week and I’m on my maximum strength medication so I do apologise if I have not gotten around to visiting your blog this week.
What I read
My reading week has been affected by my illness flare up so I’ve only managed to read three books and what a mixed bag these books have proved to be.
I finished The Fandom which is my book group’s November readalong… one star alert and a very ranty review to come this week.
Then I read ‘Sick Kids in Love’ which is about two teens with chronic illness and omg… uhMAAAAAAzing chronic illness rep and one of the easiest five star ratings I’ve ever given… review of that to come this week too.
And lastly I read ‘The Two Lives of Lydia Bird’ which is a NetGalley eARC of Josie Silver’s upcoming release…she of ‘One Day in December’ fame and I loved this sooooo much more than ‘One Day in December’!!! I’ll also post a review of that later this week.
What I am currently reading
I have just started to read ‘Requiem for a Knave’ by Laura Carlin which is an eARC from NetGalley. Here’s the blurb if you’re interested to know more:
From the author of The Wicked Cometh comes a dark, page-turning tale of passion and romance in the darkest of places. . .
After the death of his mother, young Alwin of Whittaker leaves the only home he has ever known to seek answers about his unknown father through a pilgrimage to the shrine of Our Lady of Walsingham. On the journey, Alwin falls in with a band of violent and marauding soldiers and is witness to their terrible crimes. When Alwin later joins up with a group of pilgrims, he must hide his identity . . . but he is not the only one with secrets to keep. Rosamund, a young woman travelling the same path, has much to conceal too.
The journey to discovering who he really is will lead Alwin into great danger and great passion. These are dark times, and through them, Alwin must shine a light. Will the revelations to come destroy everything that came before?
