Weekly Update #3
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 on to my weekly recap!
My little dude turned 7!
He had a lovely birthday with family then on Friday (and Saturday) he had a friend over for a sleepover and a trip to Legoland for them both on the Saturday.
It was fab, even though it was freezing cold and snowed lightly most of the day!
I still can't believe he is 7!!
Left: Where I'm from. Right: Where I currently lurk.
Then, this morning, I woke up to seven or eight inches of snow.
It was fun a couple of weeks ago, now I am over it.
Outwith birthday shenanigans, I didn't do much this week beyond read, binge watch tv and work.
Thanks to the snow, the coming week (or the beginning of it!) looks like it'll be more of the same.
Percy Jackson and the Titan's Curse By Rick Riordan
Percy Jackson and the Battle of the Labyrinth By Rick Riordan
Percy Jackson and the Last Olympian By Rick Riordan
These books are just so good!
MUST move onto the Heroes of Olympus series as soon as I hack my way through the review copies / arcs I've accumulated in the past couple of weeks!
However, I was sorely tempted by JR Ward's Dearest Ivie...
I'm still tempted by it.
It's only 1.99. It'd be covered by my gift card balance. I wouldn't be breaking the rules of the book buying embargo to add it to the reading list... Maybe next week?
I was also accepted to another blog tour, so I received one ARC this week. I can't believe I've been accepted for everything I took a punt for in April!!😱.
This week, I binge-watched The White Princess which is a fictionalized 8-part tv series based upon the marriage of Henry VII and Elizabeth of York and the end of the War of the Roses.
It was awesome.
I loved the romance between Henry VII and Elizabeth and the fact that the guy who played Henry was easy on the eyes was a huge plus!
If you enjoyed The Tudors or Reign then I highly recommend!
This week, I took 3 more books off the TBR pile!
This brings my challenge total to 8.
I haven't read anything else towards this challenge, this week, so my total remains at 3.
I still haven't contributed anything to this total... I am naughty.
Only 2 books behind target now! Next week, I'll be back on track.
Not bad when I was about 6 behind only a week or so ago!

Reviews. I must catch up on reviews.
I'm also taking part in a book blitz for a sci-fi romance which is different for me!
Have a good week everyone!
