What have you been reading this week?
I thought I was doing okay this week but I definitely tapered off towards the end. I’ve been feeling rotten all week and I reckon I’m just tired. Whatever it is, I reached a bit of a low yesterday and all I want to do today is relax. That won’t happen as I’ve got a lot to do. I just need to keep remembering that I’ve got one more week of work before I’m on holiday for a week. I cannot wait to get away and have a proper break from everything. Will I be taking plenty of books? You betcha. I’ve still got a lot to get through.

- BOOK REVIEW –Poison for Breakfast by Lemony Snicket
You’ll probably remember that I had quite a few pre-orders arriving this month and I have already finished one of them. This is the latest book from the author behind A Series of Unfortunate Events and I was excited by the concept. What would you do if you got a note saying you’d just eaten poison? I don’t know but it’s a concept I was looking forward to exploring. Could this book live up to the hyper? You’ll need to head over to my review to see.
- TBT REVIEW – SuperBob (2015)
With various rumours flying around about Brett Goldstein, I decided to finally watch his superhero film. It’s something I heard him talk about all the time when I used to listen to his podcast but I never bothered to check it out. Now seemed like a good time and I found it on Prime. Would it be as good as I’d heard? If you’re feeling nostalgic, take a look at my review.
- BOOK REVIEW – Three Act Tragedy by Agatha Christie
It’s been too long since I last read an Agatha Christie novel. I was meant to be trying to read one every month but it hasn’t been easy to fit them in. Especially when I’m trying to spell out the month. So, I decided to get 2 more done this month. Starting with this one. I listened to the audiobook at work and it wasn’t great. The Belgian accent was appalling. But what about the story in general? You’ll need to head over to my review to see.
- Poison for Breakfast by Lemony Snicket
This was a super quick read to start the month of and I’m really glad I picked it up so quickly. This was so different to how I expected it to be but also everything I should have expected. It’s a hard book to describe but one that I think everyone should read. Especially if you’re familiar with Snicket.
- Three Act Tragedy by Agatha Christie
I started listening to this at work last week when I was feeling rotten. It really did help my mood. There’s nothing like a few murders to make you forget about your blocked sinuses and pounding headache. It’s a relatively short one, so I almost finished it in a day. It was only a massive workload that made that tricky. It’s not always easy to do lots of writing when I’m listening to a book.
- Endless Night by Agatha Christie
My second Christie of the month and one that I actually started before Three Act Tragedy. I didn’t get far with this because I’ve not been feeling great this week. It’s made it difficult to pick up a book and read. Meaning I’ll have to finish it off today. I should have time to finish it before Monday, but we’ll wait and see.
I think I’ve managed to avoid new books again. I mean some of my pre-orders have turned up but that doesn’t exactly count. Does it? Please tell me it doesn’t count.
- The Simpsons– I’ve been working my way through these episodes again. Have I been giving them my full attention? No but that’s why they’ve been perfect this week. I haven’t had the attention span for real TV.
- Clickbait – Although, saying that, I did start this series when I started to feel better. I didn’t expect it to be great because its a Netflix original drama. It didn’t look interesting though, so I figured I’d try.
