What have you been reading this week?
November is getting off to a slow start but we’re still only in the first week. It feels like we’ve been in this month for ages though. Time seems to be slowing down. Thankfully, I’ve still got a few days holiday to use, so I can take a bit of time off in the next few weeks. That will give me time to read and get sorted for Christmas. I’m trying to get ahead with my present buying. I don’t want to leave it until the last minute this year. That leads to bad present buying and too many presents for myself. I don’t need any more presents.

- BOOK POST -October Reading Wrap-Up
Another month has ended, which meant last week started with my monthly wrap-up. I did much better last month than I expected. It started off quite badly and ended pretty slowly. Yet, I managed to get everything finished and have a bit of time to spare. So, just what did I read in October? You can see for yourself by reading my post.
- BOOK POST -Spell the Month in Book Titles: October
Of course, after my monthly wrap-up, I had to give a rundown of my monthly reading challenge. I can’t believe that we’re almost at the end of the year and I’ve managed to keep going. I was sure that I would never be able to find the necessary book titles. How did I manage it this month? You’ll need to head over to my post to see.
- TUESDAY REVIEW – No Time To Die (2021)
Daniel Craig’s final outing as James Bond hasn’t exactly had the easiest time of it. With various behind the scenes issues and major delays due to Covid, it almost felt as though we’d never get to see it. Yet, it’s finally here and there was a lot of pressure on it. Craig might not have been warmly welcomed when he first signed up. However, he has continually proved what a good choice he was. Not all his films have been great but he’s always been great. Would his final film be worthy of him? Head over to my review to find out.
- BOOK REVIEW –Reprieve by James Han Mattson
I was really looking forward to this book because the cover is so good. It also sounded like a terrifying read that would be the ideal way to finish October. It also seemed to have a lot of hype around it. So, would it actually scare the bejesus out of me or would it bore silly? Head over to my post and you’ll see.
- All My Friends Are Supeheroes by Andrew Kaufman
I managed to get through this before the end of last month and way before our book club meeting. It was lovely to read this again but I think 9 months is maybe too soon for me to reread something. It didn’t give me the same feeling this time. It was all just a bit too familiar. I still think it’s a 5-star read but I might wait a while before reading again.
- Nightbitch by Rachel Yoder
I’ve struggled to get into this book. Not because I think it’s a bad book but because I’ve been so tired all week. It’s not a great book for reading at night because there are no chapters. It makes it harder to get to a good stopping point, which means I’ve been stopping in random places. That always leaves me feeling weird.
I don’t think that I’ve bought any new books this week. I’ve not really been in a reading mood, so the idea of buying more books just seems like a lot. I’m trying to no books before the end of the year. It won’t happen but I can at least buy fewer books than I have been doing.
- The Simpsons– I haven’t had anything to binge recently, so I somehow found myself watching old episodes of The Simpsons. It feels as though my Disney+ subscription has mainly been used to watch this show again and again. I mean, it’s worth it but still feels like a bit of a waste.
