Sunday Rundown: That’s What She Read

Sunday Rundown

What have you been reading this week?

This week has gone off the rails quite dramatically after testing positive for Covid on Wednesday. I’d already tested negative on Tuesday but I knew something wasn’t right. Since that point, I’ve been too tired to do anything. I think I read a few pages of one of my current reads and listened to another. I had so much hope for this month and I don’t know if I’ll be able to claw it back. Who knows how long this lack of energy will go on for?

Weekly Blog Posts

  • BOOK REVIEW Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins

After finishing the first book last month, I decided that I didn’t want to wait around to read the second book. So, I found it on Spotify again. Unfortunately, the narration wasn’t as good this time. Check out my review to see what I thought about the second book in the trilogy.

  • FILM REVIEW – The Adam Project (2021)

Some reviews end up being harder than others. Sometimes a film has such little impact on you that you can’t form an opinion. I found it really difficult to write this post. Really difficult. Check out my review to see what I decided.

  • BOOK REVIEW Murder Before Evenson by Rev Richard Coles

I wrote this review in the midst of my Covid haze, so I honestly don’t know how good/bad it is. I know I posted it with the wrong title and only noticed it last night. I should really have taken the week off. Read my review to see if it actually makes sense.

Just Read

  • A Lady’s Guide to Fortune Hunting by Sophie Irwin

I almost bought a Waterstones exclusive edition of this book when it came out but it sold out before I took the plunge. Instead, I got the audiobook through NetGalley. I started listening on Wednesday when I was working from home in a Covid haze. I finished it yesterday.

Currently Reading

  • Nightmares & Daydreams by Dominic J Anton

I got sent a copy of this book to read and I’m really excited. I wish Covid hadn’t stopped me from getting further. I’m hoping to get through this today. At least a large chunk of it.

  • The Crooked Little Pieces by Sophia Lambton

I keep agreeing to read books and then not reading them. I feel so guilty. I have so many to get through that I’m really excited about. I just need to get better at it.

Book Haul

As I’ve made pretty clear, I’ve been feeling pretty bad this week. So, I indulged in a bit of retail therapy to cheer myself up. This included a new book and a few pre-orders.

  • Nightcrawling by Leila Mottley – It’s been on my To Buy list for a while and I’m really excited.
  • Tomorrow, and Tomorrow, and Tomorrow by Gabrielle Zevin – Coming out later this month. I’m hoping this won’t be another Ready Player One.
  • Six Crimson Cranes by Elizabeth Lim – I’d already pre-ordered the sequel because both these books sounded great. I figured it was about time to get a copy of the first before that comes out.

Recently Watched

  • TV:
    • The Orville – I finally decided to start this when I was ill this week. It’s a cute show but it’s nothing amazing. I’ve not been wowed yet but we’ll see.
    • Jimmy Savile: A British Horror Story – For whatever reason, I decided it would be a good idea to watch this documentary when I had Covid. I ended up feeling bad for so many reasons. What a horrible man.
