What have you been reading this week?
We’ve nearly made it through the first month of 2022 and it looks as though nothing is going to change quickly. Although I have managed to read quite a few books so far. It’s certainly refreshing to be able to pick up whichever book I want without having to think about the title. Maybe I’ll actually get some crossed off my TBR this year. That’s if I can stop myself from buying new ones, of course.

- BOOK REVIEW –Dear Edward by Ann Napolitano
I bought this book in January 2021 because it looked pretty. It also sounded like a pretty interesting read that threatened to get emotional. I finally picked it up this year and, after a pretty long time, I managed to finish it. I went in thinking that the story would kill me and I imagined blubbering for most of it. Check out my post to see if emotionally destroyed me as I’d expected.
- TUESDAY REVIEW – Sing 2 (2021)
I ended up enjoying Sing much more than I’d anticipated. I mean it wasn’t groundbreaking but I liked it enough to be looking forward to the sequel. Especially when I realised that Adam Buxton would have a much bigger role this time. Could lightning possibly strike twice? Check out my review to find out.
- BOOK REVIEW – The Good Thieves by Katherine Rundell
I had previously read The Explorer by Katherine Rundell and enjoyed it. So, I bought this book when it came out. Of course, being me, the book sat on my shelf for a few years without me evening trying to read it. So, when I was looking for something to listen to at work last week, I decided that this would be perfect. Would it be as good as my previous experience with the writer? You can see for yourself by reading my review.
- Dear Edward by Ann Napolitano
It took a lot of effort to finish this one but I finally managed it last weekend. I don’t know what went wrong with this but it definitely shouldn’t have taken that long.
- The Good Thieves by Katherine Rundell
I picked this audiobook from my Audible library to listen to at work on Monday. It was a nice and fun way to spend my time at the start of the week. I’m glad that I finally got round to it.
- The Highland Falcon Thief by M.G. Leonard and Sam Sedgman
Another book that I’ve had on my shelves for a long time but never got round to. Instead of picking up the book, I listened to the audiobook at work on Tuesday. Children’s books are great to listen to at work because you can usually read them in one day. I hate having a half-finished audiobook and then going home to pick up my current read.
- The Twyford Code by Janice Hallett
I’ve been a bit disorganised this week and not given myself enough time to read. So, I’m not doing as well with this as I’d have liked. However, I hope to make some ground back today. I’m not sure that I love the format of this as much as the previous one but I’m loving the mystery.
I’ve added plenty to my ‘to buy’ list but have not actually bought any yet. It’s only a matter of time though. I need to stop using Instagrram because I’m so easily persuaded.
- Toast of Tinseltown – I adore Matt Berry so I binged watched the latest series of Toast. It’s such a fantastic but weird show. I loved it.
- After Life – I’m not really sure how I feel about Ricky Gervais these days. I don’t know if I actually enjoy his shows or not. I don’t know if they’re purposefully odd or if they’re just bad. It’s weird.
- Foodtastic – Disney meets food meets art. How could I not watch this show? It’s stupid but amazing. The perfect thing to watch when you have no energy.
