I had a week off work!
I still didn't have the energy to internet much nor did I have much brain space for reading but I had a week to catch up on household stuff and chores as well as some day trips and family fun (as my mum was still visiting) so it was an okay week.
We visited the Tower of London on Monday as my mum has never visited and had always wanted to. We took her to Leicester Square for dinner and - as usual for a visit to Leicester Square - we ended up in the big Lego shop getting fleeced for a small fortune on Lego bits and the M&M shop getting fleeced over candy. 🙄
We also spent a day (well, half a day) in Burley in the New Forest which is a little village that has a whole witchy vibe going on that's perfect for Halloween.
Then on Thursday we went Trick or Treating before going to a friend's Halloween party which was a lot of fun... Oh! And on Friday we went 10-pin bowling and out to dinner because it's my birthday on Monday. 🙂
My mum went home yesterday and today I plan on being a lazy little slug and just relaxing in-between loads of laundry! I'd like to get some reading done for the Read a Series In a Month challenge and write some blog posts!
Damage is part two of the Collateral Damage duet and after finishing Collateral last week I needed to finish it... My brain wouldn't allow anything else.
Sealed With a Curse is book one in Cecy Robson's Weird Girls series and I like the sound of it!
It's been a while since I read some PNR so I grabbed this freebie after seeing it reviewed (can't remember what blog to link it... Sorry!)
Book one - Collateral - ended on a cliffhanger so I needed to find out what happened next and finish the duet... But what a waste of reading time and money. It was awful. Book One wasn't great but book two was ridiculous.
The Spooktacular Giveaway Hop ended and it was one of our own (KindleMom @ My Guilty Obsession) who won it! First time that's happened for one of my giveaways! I was very excited, lol.
This week I watched The Witches and Hocus Pocus because Halloween insisted.
We also binge-watched the first season of Glitch on Netflix which was weird...
7 people who'd been dead for varying amounts of time come back from the dead in perfect health. How? Who knows. Why? Who knows!
The first season was six episodes long and was oddly addicting as you got to know the people but gave you zero answers for any questions!
