What have you been reading this week?
It’s been another slow week, which is mostly due to the weather. I’m not built for this kind of heat and it’s really put me off reading. I have read a bit more than I did last week but it’s nothing to shout about. I’m very much aware that I’m getting to the end of July and I still have a few letters to cross off my reading challenge. I’ll get there. It will just require all of my attention. A real shame considering that I’ve got a lot to do today. Weekends need to be longer.

- BOOKISH POST – Bitesize Book Review 4
I’ve finished a few short reads recently and I didn’t think it was worth trying to drag a full review out of them. So, I posted another of my Bitesize Reviews. What eclectic mix am I featuring this time? You’ll need to head over to my reviews to see.
- TUESDAY REVIEW – Black Widow (2021)
This film has been a long time coming. Not only should Nat have been given her own film years ago but Covid has really not been kind to it. So, of course I had to check it out. Would this be the film we’ve all been waiting for? Or would it be another wasted opportunity? Nat hasn’t exactly been given a lot to do in her decade in the MCU. Head over to my review to find out.
- BOOK REVIEW – No One is Talking About This by Patricia Lockwood
This has been on my to buy list since the Women’s Fiction nominations were announced. It sounded like an interesting concept from an exciting writer. When it came up in the Audible sale, I decided it was finally time to check it out. The fact that I was also going to be able to finish it in a day was an added bonus. Was it as good as it sounded? You’ll only know if you check out my my review to see.
- Belinda Blinked: Lockdown 69 by Rocky Flintstone
This short little book is the latest addition to the Belinday Blinked series. Brought out during lockdown last year, Rocky Flinstone’s new work has nothing to do with Covid or lockdown. Why is it called Lockdown 69 then? I don’t know but I don’t really care. This is Rocky’s world and we’re all just living in it.
- Black Widow: Deadly Origin by Paul Cornell
After watching Black Widow I was inspired to read more of her history. She’s never been my favourite character, so I haven’t spent a lot of time reading her comic books. Why not go back to the beginning with this look back over her past? It’s not the greatest thing you’ll ever read but it’s something.
- No One is Talking About This by Patricia Lockwood
I listened to this audiobook at work last Tuesday in the hope that I’d have something to review on Wednesday. I finished the book but I didn’t end up writing the review until Friday. This was something I’d been thinking of reading for ages, so I guess there was some pressure for it to be good.
- You Know Me Well by Nina LaCour & David Leviathan
I’m so close to finishing this and will definitely have it ready to review tomorrow. This was something of a throwaway read that I only picked up to cross “Y” off my Reading Challenge. It’s not my favourite genre and I’m not really a fan of dual narratives in this way. Still, it’s an easy enough read.
I think I’ve managed to restrain myself from buying any new books again this week. Of course, I’m barely reading any either so it’s not a huge win.
- ER– Dipping back into this one. I’m currently watching Season 13, which must be where I stopped watching as regularly first time around because it seems so unfamiliar. Most of the characters I know have gone and the whole vibe has changed. Still, I do love a good medical drama.
