Weekly Update #55


Welcome!
The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimberly @ Caffeinated Reviewer
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!


This week, I was one of six colleagues sent to London to represent our programme at an awards ceremony and we won!
I'm so proud of it as all of the projects had worked so freaking hard over three years to meet our objectives and having the hard work and success recognised was amazing.

Home life was much quieter in that I didn't do much!
In fact, my only achievement this week was re-watching Vikings S1 and sleeping lots.
I didn't even manage to finish a book, although I started another two... I either need to find the style that will break me out my funk or stop reading for a bit until my mojo comes back. I really do think that I'm just mentally burned out after last month and after a reset period I'll be back on my game.


Nothing!

Amazon



The blurb for this had my shipper heart all broken. I have a feeling it's going to be a though but beautiful one to read!

99p Sale



This one was everywhere years ago but I wasn't all that interested. Honestly, I hate the cover and it makes me not want to read it. BUT the blurb sounds good, it was on a sale so I'm finally going for it.




On a whim, I re-watched Vikings S1 over two evenings... Proper binge watch style.

  8. Congratulations! That is exciting. Jealous you got to re-watch Vikings S1. Love the first season. I did not get anything last week either. Hate being in a book funk. Hopefully you find that one book to get you out.

  12. Congrats on the work award - that's fantastic! The only thins that ever help my reading slumps are either 1) rereading some favorites or 2) taking a reading break altogether. Hope yours passes soon!

  13. Congrats!!! Awesome... :)

    Vikings huh? I'm soo debating starting that since it seems like it would be right up my alley. I watched the first few episodes a few years ago when it was newer but got a little bored... but I think I need to try again and give it more of a chance.

    1. The pace ebbs and flows between full on and slow af. It's weird, it's fun and it's violent. I just love it, lol.

  14. Congrats!! I totally understand having reset periods. I have to do that once in a while as well.
    I still haven't watched Vikings. Friends keep telling me to. Perhaps I should just do it. LOL!

  21. There is so much I want to visit in London but with travel, accomodation and food costs it is way out of my budget for now! I really want to see The Tower of London, being a big Tudor fan!

    1. The tower is awesome! We were last there last summer (it rained all day) and I had a great time telling the little dude stories about the history of the place. ๐Ÿ™‚

  22. That's wonderful to have such a great success and trip to London. Congrats!

    Alice Clayton is in my head as romantic comedy. I read this one but don't remember it as being really bad or really good. I think for me in a slump I go back to a thriller or mystery which totally engages my brain. Or something that totally captures my heart. You may be too tired to get involved with a book after your trip and just need a break. Have a great week!

  25. This is a great post. Congratulation on your Team's award, Nicci, it's always such a boost for work to be recognised that like. Don't worry about the reading thing, if the books you're picking up are engaging enough to keep you interested that's no fault of yours. x
