Weekly Catch Up #1
It’s a chance to share News. A post to recap the past week, showcase books and share news about what is coming up for the week on our blog.
Now that's explained, it's onto my weekly recap!
The week started off pretty normal. Uneventful and unexciting.
The professor was in the US for work, so I was pulling double duty with the little dude, but all was fine if extremely cold.
Then, on Thursday, 'The Beast From the East' hit us.
Snow, snow and more snow.
The UK doesn't do snow well.
My work site was closed, due to safety concerns, as was the little dude's school, much to his annoyance as he wanted to wear his World Book Day costume!
The professor managed to get home from the airport before the weather got too bad but then we got snowed in.
Gotta love living in a rural location!
Work and school were closed on Friday too but after the first snow day and a half, I was over it. I'd have probably loved being tucked away with my book if the little dude hadn't lost his mind by the end of day two and driven me and the professor out of ours!
Anyway, things are getting back to normal now.
The temperature has risen above freezing and rain has started melting the snow. As long as the temperature doesn't drop again - making everything freeze - then we'll be good for Monday and it's back to work and school!
From Lukov with Love by Mariana Zapata
OMG! All the LOVE for this book. Seriously.
A 2018 favourite for sure!
Review to follow.
The Uncovering You series book 1-3 by Scarlett Edwards
Oh, flippin' heck these were grim. Dark. Not even a little romantic so I've no idea why they're classed as 'Dark Romance' but maybe that comes later when the main character develops Stockholm Syndrome?
Review to follow.
I've been good and I'm focusing on my Take Control Reading Challenge and reading books I already have.
This week, I removed 3 books from my TBR thanks to this challenge! Not bad when you consider the challenge began on Thursday.
Oh, okay, they were novellas but they were over 100 pages each so they count!
This week, I read some Dark Romance which is a genre I don't really go in for. I mean, I've read some darker books in the past but they're the light side of Dark Romance... If that makes sense?
The Uncovering You series was DARK, as I mentioned above, and really messed up.
But, I read them and they count towards trying something new, so yeay!
My goal on this one was to catch up with Sherrilyn Kenyon's Dark Hunter series. So far, I haven't read anything towards this goal but I'll try to include one or two this month as it combines nicely with the Take Control Challenge.
Release Blitz: Hawkyn by Larissa Ione
Review: Meet Me Under The Mistletoe by Carla Burgess
Giveaway Hop: Lucky is Reading
I don't have anything planned for this week!
I'm trying to catch up on reviews so I'll be writing and posting some of them and I'll be doing plenty of reading.
Have a good week all!
