Sunday Rundown: That’s What She Read

Sunday Rundown

What have you been reading this week?

I don’t really know what’s going on this year. January normally drags on and on and on. This year, it’s passing in the blink of an eye. I know that work isn’t as dull as normal but it’s still pretty boring. Still, I have got a full library of audiobooks to keep me going. Sometimes obsessively buying books is a good thing I guess.

Weekly Blog Posts

  • BOOK REVIEW –Julia and the Shark by Kiran Millwood Hargrave and Tom de Freston

I knew that I wasn’t going to finish Dear Edward in time for my Monday review so I had to finish something quickly. I’ve been meaning to read this for months. Last Sunday, I spent the evening getting it done. Check out my post to see if this was as good as it looked.

  • TUESDAY REVIEW – Spider-Man: No Way Home (2021)

It was one of the biggest film events of the year and a Marvel film that I was actually excited about. There have been plenty of rumours circulating about the third outing for Tom Holland. Personally, I was just excited to see Alfred Molina again. Is the film as good as the hype? Check out my review to find out.

  • BOOK REVIEW – The Valley of Secrets by Lesley Parr

Just one of the audiobooks that I listened to at work this week. I bought the paperback of this back in January last year and got the audiobook in a sale. I figured now was a good time to get to it. Was it worth the wait? You can see for yourself by reading my reviews.

  • Julia and the Shark by Kiran Millwood Hargrave and Tom de Freston

I finished this last Sunday evening in order to have something for my review. I’ve been meaning to read this since I bought it last year but my reading challenge stopped me. It was a great quick read for a lazy Sunday.

  • The Valley of Secrets by Lesley Parr

A fast-paced children’s adventure story. This was a lot of fun and a great way to distract myself from work. The audiobook was really good and the narrator was great at capturing character.

  • Holidays on Ice by David Sedaris

I’d read this book last Christmas and enjoyed the majority of it. It was picked as our book club read for December, so I needed to read it again. This time, I listened to the audiobook and I enjoyed it as much.

Currently Reading

  • Dear Edward by Ann Napolitano

Still reading this one. It’s much slower paced than I expected and I’m not getting through it very quickly. It’s not that it’s bad but it’s definitely taking longer than I’d hoped.

Book Haul

After last week’s haul, I hoped that I was done for a bit. Turns out I still had a bit of buying to do. At least it was only 2 books this time:

  • Wahala by Nikki May
  • Real Easy by Marie Rutkoski

Recently Watched

  • TV:
    • Hawkeye – I absolutely loved this series. I still think Wandavision is fantastic but this was the most enjoyable Marvel series so far.
    • Only Murders in the Building – I watched this series in one go. It was so much fun. I can’t wait for the next series.
