Sunday Rundown

What have you been reading this week?

I’m hoping that I’ve turned a corner this week. I’ve finished a book that I’ve been trying to get through for ages and it feels like I’m back on top. I’m ready to get stuck into something new and can’t wait to tackle more of my TBR.

Weekly Blog Posts

  • BOOK REVIEW – And The Ocean Was Our Sky by Patrick Ness

I read a few books by Patrick Ness now and haven’t been blown away by them. So, I wouldn’t normally have picked up one of his books but this one sounded great. A retelling of Moby Dick where whales hunt people? Yes please. Check out my review to see if it changed my mind about Patrick Ness.

  • FILM REVIEW Thor: Love and Thunder

Thor has always been one of my favourite Marvel characters. I love the comics and think the movies have mostly been good. I also loved The Mighty Thor series and was excited to see Jane take up the hammer. Now the film is on Disney+ I finally got to sew it. Check out my review to see if this was everything I wanted it to be.

  • BOOK REVIEW – The Crooked Little Pieces by Sophia Lambton

I feel so bad that it’s taken so long for me to finish this book but I’m finally done. I just think I’m out of practice with long books these days. I barely read anything over 300 pages and it’s a struggle. To find out more about my last read, see my review.

  • The Crooked Little Pieces: Volume 1 by Sophia Lambton

This series of books follows a set of twins from post WW2 England through their lives. The first volume is about their time in London. I’m always fascinated by stories about twins because I am a twin. So, I jumped at the chance to read this. The fact that it took me so long reflects more on me than anything else.

  • The One and Only Ivan by Katherine Applegate

Another library book that I listened to at work. I picked it because it was based on real-life and I love books that anthropomorphise animals. It was also quick.

Currently Reading

  • The Bullet That Missed by Richard Osman

This arrived last week and I couldn’t wait to start it. I’m ashamed to say that I remember very little of the previous book, so I’m forgetting some of the recurring characters. Still, the main four are still fab.

    • RuPaul’s Drag Race – I’m uninspired by TV at the moment, so I’m back on Drag Race. I just finished season 13. Symone is such a worthy winner.
