What have you been reading this week?
I’ll be honest, I’ve not done well with reading this week. I don’t know why but I’ve just not felt like it. Thankfully, I’ve still managed to finish one, so I’ve not fallen behind schedule yet. However, I just haven’t found myself wanting to sit down with a book at any point. This means that I’m going to have to spend another Sunday reading. I’m sure that I can get it done but it’s not what I wanted. I don’t know why I can’t get into anything right now. It’s either the books I’m reading or the time of year. Of course, it doesn’t help that I’ve started playing Animal Crossing again. I just wanted to see what the latest update was like but I’m quickly falling back into the old routine. Need to sort myself out.

- BOOK REVIEW –Nightbitch by Rachel Yoder
This was one of those books that had a premise that I couldn’t ignore. It was pretty much an insta-buy because it just sounded so good. An exploration of motherhood with links to Kafka and werewolves? It sounded like my kind of book. But would it be as good as it seemed? Normally, I end up disappointed by things like this. Did it happen again? You’ll need to head over to my review to see.
- TBT REVIEW – Hot Shots! (1991)
Once again, I found myself rushing to watch a film last week for my TBT review. I pretty much picked the first thing that stuck out on whichever streaming service I was on. It happened to be this classic comedy. Not one of my favourites but one that I always feel that I should enjoy more. Would it fare better this time? Only one way to find out. Are you feeling nostalgic, then head over to my review now.
- BOOK REVIEW –Mrs McGinty’s Dead by Agatha Christie
The obligatory Agatha Christie for this month is another Poirot mystery. It’s also one of the books that feature Ariadne Oliver who is definitely a favourite. I mean, every Christie fan out there adores Mrs Oliver, right? But what about the novel itself? It’s that another fan favourite or is it one of the more forgettable stories? Head over to my review and you’ll see.
- Mrs McGinty’s Dead by Agatha Christie
The only book that I’ve finished this week is the audiobook of this Agatha Christie novel. I listened to it at the start of the week and have read nothing else since. I’m not saying that this book is to blame but maybe it is?
- Eternals by Neil Gaiman and John Romita
I’m trying to get excited about Eternals because, at the moment, I can’t be bothered to watch it. So, I’m taking a look at some comic books to get to know the characters. I’m starting with Neil Gaiman because I figure he’s safe territory. Then I’ve got a couple more that I wanted to try out. After I’m done, I’ll see how I feel about actually seeing the film.
My pre-order of The Fell by Sarah Moss arrived this week and I’m really excited to read it. I’ve been looking forward to it since I read Summer Water. I think it’s going to be devastating but brilliant.
- The Simpsons– I finished watching the latest series of the show. I loved Olivia Colman’s cameo and Benedict Cumberbatch as fake Morrisey. The rest was fine but not very memorable. The same as most of the recent seasons I guess.

How many seasons are the Simpsons up to now anyway? Gotta be close to 30 by now…

The one that has just been added to Disney+ is the 32nd, which is one year less than I’ve been alive. It’s incredible that it’s still going.

Over 30? That is nuts.
But I guess it goes to show that a formula works 🙂
