Weekly Update Dec 23rd-29th

General Update

Hello all!

Christmas has come and gone for another year. I haven’t been too well this week but Christmas worked its magic and I did have a lovely Christmas Day with family; was all just very chill. And I got a book for Christmas woo!!! My friend Gabby sent me the gender swapped Twilight which I am so thrilled about…yes this blog is a safe Twilight space where we all rave about the majesty of the books (except Breaking Dawn because I can’t with Renesmee) and the perfection that was the films. Perfection means the same as supremely cheesy right?!?!?!?! Because I am ALL about that Twilight cheese!!!

I’ve seen lots of people post about their favourite books of the year and even the decade and I will be doing similarly on Tuesday as the TTT theme for this week is fav books of 2019…. But I am FAR more excited to sit down and write a post about all the books I rated one star this year…. Yes I am that terrible person that gets immense joy from ranting about books I do not like. So I will most likely draft that someday this week to post in January.

What I read this week

A mixed bag of a week really.

I started with Charles Dickens’ classic A Christmas Carol (and other Christmas books) which I loved. Then I read Good Omens by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett…didn’t go so well! As a palate cleanser I then read two children’s novels: Secret Friend by Elizabeth Laird and We’re Not From Here by Geoff Rodkey. Reviews of all will be scheduled later this week (except for Secret Friends; as that book was quite brief my review was equally succinct and I will not be posting it to my blog. But you can read it HERE on Goodreads.)

What I am currently reading

In the early hours of this morning I started Richard Ayoade’s latest ‘Ayoade on Top’ and I am LOVING it. It looks almost certain to be a five star read…a four and a half at the very least. I’m hoping to finish it tonight after writing this blog post and drafting some others.

Book reviews

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

Book tags and other miscellany

And that wraps up another week on my blog!!!Β 

Hope everyone enjoys the New Year celebrations this coming week! Here’s to a peaceful and happy 2020 for us all.

  2. I also really can’t stand Breaking Dawn (book) especially with Renesmee (Why would Bella name a child that. She really comes up with terrible names) and the whole imprinting thing between the two. I like the movies a lot
