What have you been reading this week?
My holiday officially started yesterday, so I’m taking the week off blogging. It’s an almost whole family holiday, which means my niece and nephew will be there. This also means that I won’t have as much time for reading as normal. If yesterday is anything to go by, we’ll all be kept pretty busy.
Weekly Blog Posts
- BOOK REVIEW – The Dinner Guest by B P Walter
I listened to this when I was still testing positive and working from home. It was a library book but I’ve had the paperback for a while. I wasn’t sure this would work for me but I can’t stop buying crime fiction. Check out my review to see if my gamble paid off.
- FILM REVIEW – Lightyear (2022)
I’ve been desperate to see this film and it’s only partly due to my love for Chris Evans. Toy Story was one of our favourite films when we were younger, so I was eager to see how this spin-off would work. Check out my review to see if this appealed to my nostalgia.
- BOOKISH POST – Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins
I had to finish this trilogy to see how I felt about the ending. Even though I already knew how it was going to end. Read my post to find out what I thought.
- Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins
I listened to this on Spotify last week. It was the same narrator as Catching Fire, so not ideal. However, I’ve also experienced worse narrators before.
- The Herd by Emily Edwards
My first official holiday read. I’ve been meaning to read this for a while because it’s so topical. Hopefully it will be as good as it sounds.
- The Crooked Little Pieces by Sophia Lambton
I’ll definitely get round to this on holiday. Hopefully I’ll have time to make some headway.
My delayed prequels are turning up this week, which is annoying because I’m not at home. I’m hoping Royal Mail don’t just abandon them on my steps.
- The Umbrella Academy – I can’t decide if I enjoy this show or not. I think I do but there are plenty of things I’d change. Season 3 probably wasn’t my favourite series so far but it had some interesting moments.
- Heartstopper – Now I’ve read the first 2 books, I had to watch the adaptation. It’s sweet. I can see why people love it. Also, Olivia Colman as Nick’s mum was perfect casting. Love her.
