What have you been reading this week?
It’s been quite a quiet week this week. Mostly because I had 1.5 days off. I love a 3 day weekend but it seems to fly by so quickly. Although, it did mean that I could use my Saturday morning to finish my last book of the month without feeling as though I should be doing something else. I guess that’s another reason why I mostly read before bed. If I read during the day, I feel as though I should be doing something else instead. Thankfully, I’ve done pretty well this month and had a bit of time to spare. I don’t know what’s happened to me. Normally I’m panicking about finishing on time at this point.

- BOOK REVIEW –Case Study by Graeme Macrae Burnet
I posted this review to Twitter on Monday and it ended up getting more attention than my Tweets normally do. The reason? It was liked by the publisher of this book and was retweeted by Graeme Macrae Burnet himself. He also responded to my tweet about my review and I freaked out. I ended up thanking him for writing it, which is both a true reflection of my feeling and something that has haunted me ever since. What was the thing that started this whole thing off? You’ll need to head over to my review to see.
- TBT REVIEW – Hotel Transylvania (2012)
I’m not exactly a fan of horror films, so I had to find an alternative for my pre-Halloween TBT post. It also didn’t help that I left it until the last possible moment to actually watch something. This meant something under 2 hours long. As I’d never actually seen any of this franchise, I decided it was time to give it a chance. My friend has raved about it for a long time but could I trust her? Head over to my review to find out.
- BOOKISH POST -Bitesize Reviews 6
I’ve been listening to a lot of audiobooks at work, so have had more books to review than usual. So, I lumped my recent Agatha Christie books together in a few bitesize revies. As it was October, I’d chosen some of the spookiest books that I could think of. Which were they? Head over to my post and you’ll see.
- Case Study by Graeme Macrae Burnet
I finished this just in time to review it and I’ve not been able to stop thinking about it. It was such an amazing reading experience and one that I was really looking forward to. I think Graeme Macrae Burnet it an exciting writer and there is nobody else quite like him.
- Reprieve by James Han Mattson
This is another one of those books that I bought because of the cover. I saw it on Waterstones’ Instagram and it was amazing. Bright green and red. Who wouldn’t want that? But would it be any good? I was expecting this to be really unsettling
- All My Friends Are Supeheroes by Andrew Kaufman
I read this back in February and really loved it. You can read my review here. I loved it so much that when my book club needed a feel-good book to read this month, I decided it was worth bringing up. Not only is it a super short book but it’s also super sweet. I just hope everyone else likes it. It’s becoming a trend that I like books that everyone else hates and vice versa.
No books this week. I’ve actually started thinking about Christmas shopping. Normally, I leave it to the last minute, so I’m feeling pretty smug right now.
- Family Guy– I think this show, like every similar one, has long run its course but that hasn’t stopped me binge watching the laatest season on Disney+. I mean, might as well, right?
