This week has been a good week!
I had a two day work week due to public holidays and annual leave. My mum was visiting and the little dude was on half term from school so there were lots of walks in the New Forest, parks, swimming, movies, lego and general family shenanigans.
I won Sam's 6th Blogiversary giveaway and I never win things, so that was awesome, and I got a weekend ticket for RARE 2020 in Edinburgh!! Getting that ticket was one of the most stressful purchasing experiences ever. Early entry sold out almost as soon as the link went live and everything else was quickly unavailable but not showing as sold out so, like a truly demented bookworm, I sat and refreshed that page for over 20 minutes to finally snag one when someone failed to complete checkout. It may not be early entry but the full weekend is good enough! My first ever book convention... I have no idea what to expect but I'll worry about it closer to time!

A good reading week... All were review copies and two of them were a lot of fun! Unsuitable was a bit of a miss.
I've heard this is a good one so it'd be rude not to have picked it up while it's free.
The kindle edition of A Gentleman's Guide to Vice and Virtue has been £12.99 since it's release and I refuse to pay that for an ebook. So, when I saw it in my local bookstore on a buy one get one half price deal, I felt it was time to buy it for half the price of the kindle edition... I was quite pleased with myself until the kindle edition went on sale at £1.99 this weekend!!! 😑 Nevermind... I at least have it now.
I also have the paperback of The Burning Maze (Trials of Apollo book 3 as I bought it as part of the deal mentioned above. I've yet to read the first two of this series but I buy them as they release on paperback so that when the series is complete, I'll be ready to binge read... Or, you know, when I finish The Blood of Olympus and need more of Rick Riordan's Olympians.
Saw this in one of the discount books stores and thought it sounded good.
Then I realised I had heard of it before and the reviews were mixed, to say the least! Guess I'll be finding out first hand, lol.

I blame the author Katia Rose for my new obsession with this song...
