What have you been reading this week?
So, that’s another weekend that’s just flown by. How is it possible for every weekend to pass by in a matter of minutes? I don’t feel rested or relaxed. If anything, I’m more tired now than I was. I need an extra two days to recover from my two days off. I also didn’t get as much reading done as I wanted but I only have one more letter to cross off. Hopefully, I can at least finish my monthly challenge for March. How the hell am I going to finish August, September and the other long ones?

- BOOK REVIEW – Artemis Fowl by Eoin Colfer
Do you ever get the desire to read books from your childhood? I have such strong memories about certain books that I’d happily reread them as an adult. This was one of them. I’d been keen to go back to it when the film adaptation was announced and I had every intention to read it before it was finished. That obviously didn’t happen, so I decided to read it on its anniversary year. Was it as good as I remember? If you’re curious, you’ll want to give my review a quick read.
- BITESIZE BOOK REVIEWS
I didn’t get an awful lot read last weekend so I had to be creative when it came to my book reviews for the week. I was sorted for Monday but Wednesday was a bit trickier. I still had a book from the beginning of the month to discuss but it wouldn’t really fill a whole post. The race was on to finish more in time to rite something. Did I do it? What did I manage to fit in? To find out, you’ll have to head over to my post.
- TBT REVIEW – The Mighty Ducks (1992)
With the new Mighty Ducks series starting on Disney+ last week, I knew it was time to revisit the film series. It’s been too long since I saw the first film and it’s always good to see where these things start. I’m a bit of a sucker for a bad sports movie. I love the clichés and the obviousness of it all. You know where you are with a sports movie and I enjoy that. The Mighty Ducks is definitely a classic sports movie. If you’re feeling nostalgic, head over to my review.
- Ms. Marvel, Vol. 1: No Normal by G. Willow Wilson
I read this quickly on Tuesday evening when I was desperately looking for something to review. I’d read these comics when they were first released but it’s been a while. With the Disney+ series coming up soon, I wanted to reacquaint myself with it. Kamala is such a wonderful character and her storyline is so interesting. I can’t wait to see how she fits into the MCU.
- The Rose and the Yew Tree by Mary Westmacott
I struggled to make my way through the book, so I went with the audiobook version. I finished the majority of it on Friday as I worked. I won’t go into this too much because my review will be up tomorrow.
- The Hellion by Harriet Young
This is book that I’ve been looking forward to for a really long time. It’s written by someone I know through Instagram and I was one of the people to fund it’s publication on Unbound. It’s fictionalised tale of three women during the Pendle Witch Trials and just sounds incredible. I’m hoping to get it finished before the end of the month.
I think I’ve been pretty good this week. Maybe another second-hand Folio Society Edition but that’s being bundled with the rest.
- Gilmore Girls – I had a desire to watch this the other day and I started a binge. A binge that was, unfortunately, help up thanks to a lack of internet over Thursday and Friday but I’m back at it now.
- Family Guy – Unlike this show, which has only become less funny and more pathetic as time goes on. I’ve watched a few of the episodes I’ve missed over the years but it’s not doing anything for me. It’s just sad.
